1. Working with Wood Composites -- If you're looking to make your outdoor projects last, the longest-lived material available is wood fiber and plastic composites. Includes FREE PLANS for a composite Adirondack Chair. 2. Truing the Table to the Drill Chuck -- For most drilling ops, the table must be square to the axis of the chuck front-to-back and side-to-side. The equipment needed can be made from a carriage bolt and scrap wood.
3. Cleaning and Inspection -- In Part 2 of Shopsmith Reborn, we tear down the headstock of our 1964 goldie, clean each part and sub-assembly, and decide which parts must be replaced before the Mark V will run safely. 4. Drew's Interludes -- First, Drew shows us how to to use winding sticks to gauge if a drawer is flat or twisted. Second, he takes advantage of the propensity for wood and glue to "creep" under pressure to straighten the twisted drawer.
