Re: Today in the shop (raising my workbench height)

Removable workbench-adders are great. Good thinking!
I had posted one lately on my 'watch tinkering hobby'. It's a great asset based purely on scrapwood.

Re: Today in the shop (using up scrap)

Good strategy using laminated sides to accomplish the Dados for shelves!

Re: bevel cut problems

Hi: Regarding my bandsaw 'hack', I normally stand the workpiece up and use the miter gage (table kept flat) to rough-cut the bevels. Later on, the SS Disc Sander is a very accommodating truing device for both bevel-angle and final piece lengths.

Good luck!

Re: Are you a powerpro owner?

Yep, I did my DIY PowerPro 10 years ago this Labor Day weekend. Still going strong and precise!

Re: bevel cut problems

For jobs like this I used the tablesaw mode early on. In later projects, to reduce stress on myself, I rough-cut the bevels on the bandsaw, and true them up very precisely on the Disc Sander, with table tilted and with some extension on the miter gage.

Re: Using a Shop Smith Mark V on a Chris Craft Roamer refit

Great to see resumed progress! And the use of both old and new wood is very nice.

Special Shopsmith Hack, Watch Tinkering Bench

Hi, I have been amateur-tinkering with wristwatches for about a year now. There is a lot to learn, particularly in the mechanical realm. It's just a hobby and I'm not certified or trained. It can be very fun, as well as most frustrating at times! One aspect of the work has greatly improved this week...

Re: Driving around in a a Shopsmith?

Yep!
My wife drove a Jeep Compass for nearly 10 years, having the CVT. I thought the same! No problems ever with that powertrain.
