1940s Large Bandsaw [DiRestoration]
Hand Tool Rescue



Published on Aug 9, 2018
In this video Jimmy DiResta invited me to his workshop to help rescue this 1945 Delta Milwaukee 14" Bandsaw. We decided to not do a typical restoration, but go with a raw steel and brass look for all parts. We both really liked how this turned out and hopefully I can do more things like this every once in a while.

The exposed parts of the bandsaw were fairly rusty, but the internals were in surprisingly good shape. Luckily not all of the bearings needed replacing as I only brought a few new bearings and finding new ones in the short time I was there, was not possible.

I focused on disassembly, cleaning, removing paint and rust, and reassembling the bandsaw. Jimmy focused on remaking the knobs in solid brass, making the blade guard out of oak, welding the new pulleys, making the motor mount, and hooking up the power switch.

Brett McAfee focused on "brassing" certain steel parts on the saw so it would look even better. You can see his process here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzCXP...

We all had a lot of fun and I hope to do this again one day. Thank you for inviting me Jimmy!

Building A Block Wall
Essential Craftsman


Published on Aug 11, 2018
If you would like to know the cost of this block wall please visit our Patreon page http://bit.ly/ecpatreon

There is something mesmerizing about watching a mason build a block wall. There is something about the way they lay that mud on the block, and how smooth and natural they make it happen. Masonry is a classic example of something that looks a lot easier than it actually is. The weight of the blocks, the task of balancing mud on the trowel, and the mandatory precision make this is a really challenging trade - at least if you want to do it at a high level. The good news is that the process is simple and if you have some time and patience, anyone can learn it and make a nice product. I would recommend starting on a smaller size job though!

In this video we cover the entire process of building a block wall. This project starts at the footing excavation and rebar placement, and finishes with grouting the new 8ft tall, 1350 ft long wall.

These masons did a great job on this wall, and we are quite pleased. On any job of this size there will be some speed bumps, but this crew handled everything with professionalism and mutual respect.

How to make a toilet flush every time without chemicals
abc12379082


Published on Sep 15, 2014
Using this method you can save a lot of money over the cost of replacing a toilet when not necessary. This can take from five to ten minutes and generally is good for up to 5 years or less before needing it again. It can save you as much as $300 or more plus your time and mess to clean up after replacing one. Did you know the person who invented the toilet was John Crapper? If you don't believe it google it.

Installing Solar Hot Water & Solar Photovoltaic System
So Me and my new worker started digging new holes in the ground to start the process of installing the mounting system for the solar hot water heater and solar photovoltaic system. After this last Hurricane we had here on the Big Island of Hawaii it got me rethinking the mounting system for the solar water heater panels. So Im now installing a mounting system that will not go any where and will be here for ever. Both mounting systems is over kill and super strong.

As I continue with the custom internal bar for the shaper, I use a piece of 4" bar stock to machine a hex nut that'll be used to retain the bar. I decided to use the shaper because it's fun and a different way of normally doing things.

Welding the Gate Columns
Essential Craftsman


Published on Aug 21, 2018
This video is a part of a series which starts here https://youtu.be/JlLW0TWgj0w

The property where these columns will be installed is a self storage facility. This is the same property where you saw this block wall being built https://youtu.be/SdrunEMZIpQ

This welding was done with an older model Lincoln buzzbox. The welder is AC only and was purchased used for $150. This is a great place to start if you are interested in welding. Very low investment and you learn some very valuable basics that will help you as you later move to MIG and TIG welding.

5 Star Machine Shop, Pine Bluff Arkansas
Abom79


Published on Sep 5, 2018
While heading South out of Missouri and through Arkansas, I stopped by 5 Star Machine Shop in Pine Bluff to visit Bill, Dana, and Patrick. Bill has a very well equipped job shop and does a lot of the same work I do myself, serving the local paper mill and other industrial companies in need of machining and repairs. I had a great time visiting them and really enjoyed seeing all of his machines.
