laney shaughnessy - 4 replies

I was just wondering what happened to laney shaughnessy? It dawned on me that it’s been a while since I’ve seen him around so I did a search and he seems to have vanished! Aliens, FBI undisclosed imprisonment, did he fall in love and run away with a female Sasquatch?

I am biulding my roubo bench and need to fine tune the tenon for fitting the endcap but the hard maple is laughing at my crummy #92 Stanley (I bought it from a liar on ebay, good shape must now include stripped body and adjusting block) I was able to tap the shaft larger and make a new shaft and adjustment block but it just chatters in fear of m...

I just bought a Stanley #12 for in mint condition for $20, I NEVER get deals like that.

I have always used india oilstones with great results but have now switched to Arkansas stones. My India stones are 2” wide and I wanted wider stones to make sharpening my bigger plane irons easier, my question is for you all that have them is how often you clean them. I use honing oil and the papers that came with the new stones (Soft, Ha...

Chisel handles - 4 replies

After loving my standard Narex chisels for so long I bought some of their new Premium chisels, yes I have a chisel addiction, and so far I really like them with one exception, the handles. Not only are they ugly but they don’t fit my hands very well and I like the personal touch of self made chisel handles. On other handles I used copper ...

Very pleased with Festool - 3 replies

I have several Festool tools and I have always been very happy. I did however have an issue with a tool on a part that is considered a part that wears out in time and therefore isn’t covered by the warranty. I called their parts and service and asked them a few questions about this matter and they went sooo far above and beyond what I ever...

#80 scraper - 6 replies

I just goet a heck of a deal on a sweetheart #80, $8. The only thing is that it has no blade. I have a number of scrapers, one that I have is pretty thick and I don’t like using it because it is too hard to flex so I figured I would use that unless anyone has any other ideas. What angle do you guys and gals bevel yours to?? I was planning ...

Electrolysis questions - 6 replies

Hopefully tomorrow my kids and I are going to do electrolysis on a couple plane irons and chipbreakers-here is my question. I normally read that hot or warm water works better and to not do it in a confined area and best to do it outside-I live in Mn-and it’s winter. They are talking 10 degrees above which is a BIG heatwave to about 20 bel...

shellac on steel bodied hand planes - 5 replies

I was wondering what is the reason for putting shellac on steel bodied hand planes, is it just to protect the Japanning or is there more to it or a different reason all together? I was also wondering how long it lasts under normal use-I don’t want to be reapplying it every month. I have always just waxed mine but have recently seen a few d...

Festool drill - 9 replies

Now that I finally have enough pennies save I am going to get a Festool drill. If I can’t find any of the discounted units that PaulMarcel was nice enough to clue me into I will be looking at either the 15.6v TDK with the T-style that I am used to or the C12 12v which looks pretty intriguing, mainly just cause something different. I don...

Air compressor problems - 15 replies

I am having troubles with my air compressor. When it pumps up it will reach 130psi just like it should and then it kicks out but then all the air will leak back out the pressure switch, then it will pump back up and do it all over again. I have even replaced the pressure switch thinking it will solve it, but same thing with the new one. It is a ...

Drum sander ? - 3 replies

I just bought a new Jet 16/32 drum sander. I had problems getting the conveor to track no matter what I did. I called them and they had me drill out the bracket for the front roller and adjust it forward. After that I does track, but I still have to have the tension tight on the outboard side and extra loose on the inboard side, so the conveor b...
