Space saving multifunction jig - 13 replies
While it’s cold out, I’m keeping myself busy drawing up a relatively complex multifunction jig. I have made a couple simpler ones, and have interest in several more, but I realized two things: 1. space is an issue for almost everyone including me and 2. these desired jigs all have many elements in common. So why not combine them? ...

Looking for unusual tool - 3 replies
I have seen, but don’t remember where, an 18” (or so) hollow tool steel pipe set up with a shop vac adapter that effectively collected the chips from a spindle roughing operation. A relatively short length of tool steel tube was welded to the end of a longer mild steel pipe and sharpened like a roughing tool. Google cannot find it,...

Osage is harder to turn than I imagined... - 11 replies
Here is a simple turning I tried with nothing to be lost if it didn’t work so well. The hedge is green, freshly cut about two months ago now so I thought it would turn fairly easily with sharp gouges and skews. Roughing out the small diameter log was no picnic, partly because there was a small knot near one end. The wood is SO tough tha...

Unknown Tormek accessories - 1 reply
I received a Tromek T7 with accessories in a nice trade. There are some leftover parts that I cannot identify from any source the Internet can find. The only one that looks familiar is the long knob bolt with a point that looks to be part of a Multi-jig. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help!DanK

Stanley brace jaw spring - 10 replies
I have a Stanley No 965 10 in brace with the setup pictured. I believe there is a spring missing because the jaws just don’t behave well. Does anyone have information about this chuck setup? Perhaps a picture of the spring if there is one? Thank you in advance. DanK

Sold! Pick hand plane to trade for blind nailer - 4 replies
I’m looking to trade for a blind nailer. I have these wooden planes that I have acquired over the years but not used. I think a one for one swap would be fair. I don’t remember if these planes are marked. If you are interested, PM me and I can dig it out and look. What I have: a 3/8” dado and skew rabbet or panel: ...

I have two cast steel framing chisels and a nice Siegly “45” plow plane for swap. The 1” corner chisel has been welded, but done very well. I could not break it. The slick is 1 3/4” wide and is marked “W Butcher cast steel”. They are razor sharp and ready for use. I’ve put new ash handles with ferru...

Drill press table height adjustments - 6 replies
In all the posts on this site about drill press tables, I can’t remember seeing one that addresses height adjustment issues for the medium and smaller presses that have no vertical rack and pinion. I’ve tried to live by adjusting the table height by lifting and dropping, and it’s getting old. I’m interested in ideas to ...
