Popular Woodworking Magazine: October 2016

October issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine
mailed to subscribers, and is now accessible in our on-line
retailer. Whereas it’s troublesome for me to select a favourite article
from a given concern (that’s akin to choosing my favourite cat!),
it’s made a bit simpler this time by circumstance.

I’m within the midst of establishing a small however respectable store at
dwelling, and whereas I’ve all of the hand instruments I want (although not
all that I would like, after all!), I’m available in the market for a number of
items of equipment – and I would like classic. On my listing: a 1980s
U.S.-made Rockwell Delta 14″ band noticed, largely as a result of I’m
aware of that stable and comparatively cheap mannequin
from utilizing it at Christopher Schwarz’s store; a 12″ Parks
planer, each as a result of they’re superior and had been made about one
mile from my home; and a Northfield jointer (ideally
16″…however that is likely to be aiming too excessive).

So, Jameel Abraham’s article, “Outdated Arn: Discovering and restoring
classic store equipment,” might be invaluable to me. He tells
readers how one can discover previous machines and components, how finest to tear
it down for cleansing and restoration, and how one can put it again
collectively – with info on variable frequency drives to
management a Three-phase motor with 220-volt energy. (I’m not having
Three-phase introduced into my home, in order that’s key.)

I additionally love the opening picture (proven above) – Jameel, who’s
usually one of many kindest and gentlest males I do know, clearly
doesn’t like having his image taken! However that’s OK – all
eyes are on that restored drill press!

Don’t miss Jameel in the October issue of Popular
Woodworking Magazine…
