worksharp jig

3 days ago by Gibernak | 3 comments »

I’ve had WS 3000 a year now and I still love it. I recently bought the bar attachment and some Tormek jigs. It works amazing. But I needed a way to remove the burr on the inside of my gouges when using the SVD 185 jig. So I made these mushroom shaped tightening knob out of MDF, they lock the wheel on and I can the apply honing past to them. I made some different sizes and with different past for different sizes of gouges. They works very well. Just wanted to share the idea. ...

The Basement #29: Shop Vac - Cyclone and Cart

773 days ago by JL7 | 10 comments »

Always working on the dust issues in the basement…...... Love the Fein vac – Klingspor was selling the Turbo II for $100 off list a few weeks ago, so just couldn’t resist and the Super Deputy is just a sweet addition. The reviews are accurate on this one – it works great. Just hate dragging around all the hoses and crap…....you know what I mean….... This is just a 2×4, a bunch of scrap wood, and the old metal base off of the dust collecto...

Benchtop Bench - got tired of back pain... Blog

57 days ago by mafe | 23 comments »

Benchtop benchgot tired of back pain… When I was sawing finger or dovetail joints on my traditional Scandinavian workbench, I always ended up standing in a bed over position sawing. Since I am retired du to a neck operation this is especially for me no good.So when I realized I had to cut a handful for my daughters confirmation gift, I decided it was time to quit whining and do something about it.Two ways ahead a moxon or a benchtop bench, the bench on bench would give me a general c...

Workshop #26: ShopQuest 2014- got around to it.

127 days ago by clieb91 | 5 comments »

For quite awhile now this is how my pliers have been stored above my workbench… Since I was puttering around the shop today with yet another snow day. I finally took a few minutes to make a rack. I used some games that did not turn out for one reason or another as sides and a piece of scrap 2×4 that was once a shelf in my shop. Nothing very exciting I know… however as I continue to think about it I think this space is going to become a bigger area for a future S...

Carving tools #3: Spoon knife leather sheaths.

145 days ago by mafe | 21 comments »

Spoon knife leather sheathsI know it’s not made of wood – lol. Since I care for my tools and the spoon knifes when useful are razor sharp, I thought it would be wise to make them some sheaths, to replace the rubber once I made from bicycle tire tube (they did not stand the sharp edge and were not sexy at all – lol). After browsing the web a little, I found a type I liked and the rest was as they say at Nike: ‘just do it’ or Sinatra: http://youtu.be/kF-rtkrcQRg...

162 days ago by mafe | 13 comments »

Honing stickfield honing and stropping for spoon knifes First little project in the shop after it’s reopening. Made this little drawing in my sketchbook last year and decided it was a good little get ‘started project’. So a piece of a old broomstick. Run through the table saw a little over the center. Making for the slice. Ripping down half way. Finishing the cut. That’s a stick with a slice… Making a groove for a O-ring. Here the O-...

The Basement #38: Saw Blade Jackets

182 days ago by JL7 | 27 comments »

Basically like LP jackets…...but peg board. It did occur to me that I could have used old Rolling Stones or Jim Hendrix record jackets, but that thought was too late. When I moved into this house, there was a bunch of pegboard on the walls of the little shop. Don’t use much pegboard since the french cleat system went in, so it was nice to find a use for this otherwise worthless material…... Ripped a stack of pegboard into squares: Took a third of the stack...
