"Amazing Products" - 10 replies

I got an email this morning from Popular Woodworking featuring the image below. Now I’m not sure exactly what this amazing product is, but it sure doesn’t look like something one should partake in before operating power tools! :-)

Deal Alert - Dewalt Drill - 1 reply

I’ve had good luck with reconditioned tools from CPO. When I got the email for this deal this morning, I jumped on it. I’ve got the 18V NiCad Dewalt 1/2” drill, and it has given me great service. I’ve just been waiting for a good deal on a Lithium Ion version to come along.

Happy Father's Day - 14 replies

Happy Father’s Day to Dads everywhere, living and departed, including all those moms who have to be dads as well. I wrote this song for my dad… unfortunately, his dementia doesn’t really allow him to fully comprehend it. I’m sure some of you will be able to identify though.

Band Saw Question - 12 replies

I need a little advice with a new-to-me Sears 12” band saw. The saw belonged to ny dad, who is in a nursing home now, and it has not been used in quite a while. In the process of cleaning it up, I noticed the blade was too close to the edge of the tire on the top wheel. When I loosened the tension knob to fiddle with the blade, nothing ...

Move Along - No Woodworking to See Here - 30 replies

I feel a little guilty posting this since I haven’t posted any actual woodworking lately, but this in direct response to a fellow LJ who asked if I had any new music to share. I was playing around on the guitar the other night in my little home studio, and the result sounded like it might match up well with some of my Bryce Canyon photos...

Plane Deal Alert - 16 replies

Am I missing something? Apart from the broken handles, this looks to me like an excellent deal on some fixer-uppers. The only reason I’m not bidding is that I’m pretty full on the project list right now. Still, if nobody bids, I’m gonna jump in.

The Outrage of Saggy Pants - 60 replies

Okay folks, this is totally non-woodworking, but it’s something that’s been on my local news lately, and I’m interested in other people’s thoughts on this issue. We’re probably all familiar by now with the sagging pants fashion statement, right? You know… where the guy’s shorts are barely clinging to ...

Oldies Reunion - 22 replies

Okay, I’ve said it before…. I love the oldies. I scooped up this pre-lateral #4, Type 4 because it looked to be in very nice shape under the rust. Made sometime between 1874 and 1884, this 130-year-old plane is living proof of the phrase “they don’t make ‘em like they used to.” It never fails to amaze me ho...

What is this plane? - 37 replies

This listing caught my eye, and I thought I’d throw it out here for discussion. Advertised as a #4, it is clearly marked No. 10 on the base. I thought a Stanley #10 was a rabbet plane, with the cutout sides for a full-width iron. The photo with the top view, judging from the shadows and light, seems to show the cutouts. But the side vie...

Speaking of Photography - 85 replies

I saw one of our photography threads got bumped up to the top this morning, so maybe it’s time to start a new one. I took some shots of an orchid plant someone gave my wife, and turned it into one of my original-music-and-photo videos. Here’s the link: And a sample:

Bedrock 603 - Flawed Beauty - 12 replies

I picked up this rusty 603 because I sensed there was not much wrong with it (apart from the obvious…. do you see it?) This is a Type 3, which dates it between 1900 and 1908. A couple of hours work really showed this beauty to be in excellent shape for the most part. The thing that struck me most about it was the condition of the kn...
