  • I got a new toy today too

    No longer will I be concerned with the size of the project I have to drill. I picked up the little toy today.

    Kevin, does this mean patterns with more holes? I have a craftsman 15" 12 speed that I have had for several years and would be lost without it now. A press is a very nice addition to your tools. Glad you got it. Steve

      Steve,
      It means I can use my drill press on patterns up to 34" wide. I've had a regular drill press for years, but this one has a 34" swing (radial press).
      I already have the pattern in mind that will be close to that big (probably about 18 X 24).

          Who made it Kevin? Is it from the Grizzly Catalog?

              Bill,
              It's a Rikon. I bought it at my local woodcraft.

              Funny part of the story. My wife gave me a $50 gift card to woodcraft for my birthday as I told he I wanted a set of "board buddies" for my table saw. We went for lunch near the store so she came with me and decided to wait in the van while I went in to get them. The look on her face was priceless when I came out with the board buddies AND all 150 lbs. of this box. Hehehehe (guess I forgot to mention to her that I was also buying this).

                I'm SO jealous!! I missed a chance at a radial drill press and have kicked myself for over a year now for not taking advantage of the opportunity. You're gonna get some good use out of it Kev!!

                  very nice grab Kevin. having a drill press like that also means stack cutting will be so much easier, I wish I had the room for a standup drill press but alas

                    You will love it Kevin. I own a drill press and would not live without that gadget.

                        I love my drill press, but my arm gets tired after the 100th or so fretwork hole. I like to try and do all the holes before I start the cutting. Call me anal. I like to finish one phase before moving on to the next. Of course, there are always holes I miss, so I don't take the bit out until I've got the entire piece of work cut out.

                          Kevin as Barry has stated before, it doesn't really exist without some bragging photos. Share the new toy with some visuals!! I want to see this new toy.

                            How much was it anyhow? I've bumped one of those up the list for tools I need to have. I have a mini drill press, but it only can drill 2 inches deep and I need to drill 2 1/2 deep most of the time..so I have to clamp, drill, raise wood, re-clamp and drill. Plus, mine just doesn't have the power to hog out with a 2" forestner bit.

                              I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                              The bags seem easier on the surface.
                              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
