Porter Cable Bammer

The problems associated with earlier models. For example, there's no oil lubricant to mess with, and the Bammer's piezo electric ignition does away with both batteries and chargers.

I recently built Craig Bentzley's drill press table. See AW 61. When I completed the table and attached it to my drill press, I found that there wasn't enough clearance for cranking the rack-and-pinion mechanism to raise and lower the table. If other readers have encountered this problem, they might find my solution helpful. I cut out a hardwood support arm and screwed it to the underside of the table as shown in the drawing. A hole drilled in the arm supports a length of iron pipe that's large...

Relocated Crank

I plan to make the sleigh bed featured in AW 64, but I'd like to try steam bending the curved slats instead of bandsawing them. Can you recommend steam bending in this kind of project Why did the author bancLsaw them Randy Sorenson replies I tried steam bending the slats when I first started making the sleigh bed. I found that each slat wants to bend into its own slightly different shape after being undamped from its form. It's almost impossible to get the curves uniform. When I lined my...

Making A Curved Frameandpanel Door

Rustic Wood Tenon Fence

A coopered panel can make a fine cabinet door on its own. But I really like the look you get when you surround a curved panel with a stile-and-rail frame. There are two tricky parts in this venture raising the edges of the curved panel, and making the curved rails. To raise the edges of a curved panel, you need to replace your router's flat plastic sub-base with a curved wooden one made by gluing together several short staves. Make your wooden base oversize so there's plenty of surface area to...
