How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #2: Rust Removal and Prevention

11-14-2016 12:40 PM by HokieKen | 11 comments »

So, when we left off last time we had determined that this plane was perfectly salvageable and made a list of what all we need to do to it. We determined that all of its parts were present and that we shouldn’t have to make/buy any replacement parts with the possible exception of the iron and chipbreaker. Here is our subject: The biggest issue with this guy is the rust. That’s what I normally tackle first and what I’ll be addressing in this entry. The methods I ...

Covering the bottom of a box

11-22-2016 12:42 AM by DonSol | 5 comments »

This is in response to the method Boxguy uses and described in one of his project post. I told him I would post a blog showing the method I use now. Years ago I used the same method he does but this is so much easier, less messy and quicker. So here goes and I hope he likes it. I use picture mat board that I get from the Art Center here in town. Cut a piece about 1/16” smaller than the opening. If I have an odd shape box I will cover the opening with masking tape, cut aroun...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #1: Cannon project information and getting started.

06-23-2016 10:25 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 11 comments »

I’ve received an exciting project recently that I will update as it gets completed. The cannon was made in 1844 by Daniel Treadwell, and is property of the US Navy and will be place in front of the Marine HQ building on base here at the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station. My job will be to prep and paint the cannon and build a carriage for it to sit on. The carriage needs to match the company emblem so it won’t be historically correct. With that said my wood choices are unlimited. ...

Making all wood folding knives #1: The first twelve parts

04-27-2016 11:53 PM by poospleasures | 6 comments »

Several of you have asked for instruction for making the all wood folding knives I,ve been doing for a number of years. Hope I can give that instruction through this blog series. If to many get fed-up with this please let me know to stop. Starting today 4/27/16 we will begin. It would probably be a good idea to have a folding pocket knife handy to be able to look to see the pieces we are talking about. I will be making three knives at this time. #1 is choosing the material. You can make the ...

Inlay Material #1: Source for Inlay Material in Gilbert, Az.

03-13-2016 06:39 PM by Jim Jakosh | 10 comments »

I have been using turquoise found in the desert here for inlay material and it is fine for flat work where you sand it down to the surface. But, it is very hard on cutting tools in the lathe. John Goodwin from Dead Tree Salvage put me onto a source he uses called Natural Expressions, Inc. in Gilbert,Az. Fred Thiele, the owner, is a great guy and he has rock from all over the world. He also had lots of different crushed rock for inlay material- both natural and man made. He has turquoise,...

Gain 10" of Table Saw Rip Capacity Without Drilling

02-16-2013 02:54 PM by knotscott | 12 comments »

Feeling a little restricted by your table saw’s small rip capacity, but don’t have the room for a 52” rip setup? If you’ve got a Biesemeyer or Biese clone style fence and a left tilt table saw, it’s very likely that you can gain in the range of 10” of rip capacity for next to no cost, and with minimal effort. There’s not many opportunities to rip on the left side of a left tilting saw, so if you’ve got a steel t-square style fence like a Biese...

The ABCs of Table Saws

09-21-2012 09:00 PM by knotscott | 25 comments »

Making Sense of Table Saw Classifications -Buying a new table saw can be a little confusing to an inexperienced buyer. The models, brands, manufacturers, and types of saws are in a constant state of change. What was true just a few years ago may no longer apply, so it can be difficult to get reliable information even from seasoned veterans if they haven’t been keeping up on the trends. Even seasoned veterans may be surprised at how rapidly the marketplace changes. To help simplify your purcha...
