Is this blemish in my BLO finish a glue spot? It seems too soaked in to me. Could it be some natural blemish? by SlimTidy in woodworking

That is probably glue or some other substance that prevented the oil from penetrating. Try lightly sanding the area and reapplying the blo.

Should I buy a jack plane or save for a thickness planer? by [deleted] in woodworking

[–]Dylan_ail_Don 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have used a thickness planer for every project I have worked on since I bought it. I don't think I can say the same about any other tool.

I used the same website when I designed a rocker.

How do you like the angle of the armrests relative to the seat. I'm just finishing another version with cantilevered arms and I have them more or less parallel to the seat.

How did you calculate the radius for the rockers?

Walnut Armchair with Danish Cord seating. by Dylan_ail_Don in woodworking

[–]Dylan_ail_Don[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks.

Yeah the armrests are the weak point in the design. I have mocked up a different armrest that is about 1/4" thicker in the middle and also has a halflap on the inside in addition to the through tenon and that seemed much sturdier and removed most of the flex. I am working on another version now where I split the armrest down the middle after rough shaping and routed corresponding grooves on either side to accept a piece of steel bar which when assembled I can't flex at all so I will probably end up with something that is perhaps a bit thicker and much less likely to fail.

I am working on a bench version so I will try to document the build more thoroughly.

I used a looped warp method for the warp strands and also a double side rail, so I didn't need any traditional L-nails or tacks, but when I do more traditional cord weaving I get them from HH Perkins in North Haven, CT HH Perkins.

Planer and Direction of Grain by maustin02 in woodworking

I've done this a few times and never had a problem. Take the lightest passes you can, I have never rotated the handle more than 1/8 turn between passes.

Don't stand behind it.

If you can get away with just sanding it, that would be the way to go.

How dumb is it to run these faces over a jointer? by regret_it_already in woodworking

[–]Dylan_ail_Don 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you sure about this? I have never noticed this effect, granted I have never looked for it. I don't see how it would happen.

Say for example the blade height at the highest point during it's rotation is 1/64 above the infeed table, and the outfeed table is set to the same height as the blade in that position, and the tables are coplanar and you have proper technique. Which part of the board is removing more or less than that 1/64 of an inch if the board is already squared?

the stlyobate floor of the parthenon is curved to produce the same effect, it is an arc with a 3.5 mile radius.

That makes sense, I wonder if there is a way to replace the cluster and have the odometer rolled back to the current milage.

Thanks.

Cool, thanks.

I'm not particularly mechanically inclined and I have never owned a car this old or with this many miles. I plan on taking it to a mechanic I know this week, is there anything particular to XJs I should have him look at?

One thing I have noticed is that once a day so far when I depress the clutch I'm not able to shift into gear from neutral. I end up having to back off the clutch and redepress the clutch a few times and then I can get it into gear. Once it is in gear it functions as it should without any noise or anything. Any ideas?

Interesting. Is it legal to just change an odometer like that?

Yeah for some reason on the driver side the trim is only on the door itself, on the passenger side it is complete. I'll probably just take it all off.
