Plow plane restore

03-12-2014 09:34 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Have cleaned the body’s sides of old nasty varnish. Using just a hand plane set as fine as I could set it. and then flattened to sole with a #78 rebate plane. Seems the was a LOT of wear and tear near the front Now, it is all flat and square to the skate. Skate has been ccleaned up a bit. It will remain on the plane, since things might move a bit if it comes off. Fence was also cleaned up, to remove all the old varnish. The rods had a problem, though. Both had spl...

Help Identifying this Disston saw!

06-24-2014 02:13 AM by J_H | 3 comments »

I recently purchased this saw at an antique store. Its a small panel saw with a 12” blade. I grabbed it because I hadn’t seen any other Disston’s like it before and I was intrigued. I haven’t been able to find any others like it online and I was hoping someone could help me identify it. I know that the Keystone series was a budget saw line from Disston but I am wondering if this saw would be a good user worth keeping around.

06-04-2009 03:24 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

Sure, I’d prepped a bunch o pens going into this contest… But now that I’m posting 3 for 3, It just seems kinda weird posting nothing else yet. Today was the 2nd of 2 cigar pens. One gold, one platinum, both Hawaiian woods. Check that, GORGEOUS Hawaiian woods. Well, we won’t be seeing any more cigar pens this month. Hawaiian or otherwise. Not because I think your sick of pens pens pens, or I’m getting bored with them, I just dont have any more. So, now you kno...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #152: Some Decisions are Difficult to Make

11-02-2010 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am at last seeing the finish line in painting the skating pond scene. As of today, I am on the last of the figure and then I only need to do the trees and lamp posts and I will be able to unveil the entire scene. I have thoroughly enjoyed recreating it, but there have been many distractions along the way and I am feeling that I can’t wait to get to the many other things that await my attention. The distractions haven’t been all bad, but some are certainly more productive tha...

Triton Router Update!

01-26-2011 06:21 AM by thiel | 3 comments »

Gang, A while ago I posted this blog entry (http://lumberjocks.com/thiel/blog/14521) about how I needed to replace the worm drive in my Triton table router since it had stripped. Triton (having been purchased by HTC tools) sent me out the new part with no questions asked, and I’d found an excellent description of the replacement process online. At the time, a couple of us noted that a nylon part for a worm gear seemed like a bad idea… and no surprise when six months later...

Large Run of Small Boxes #2

03-19-2011 07:26 PM by mnpete | 3 comments »

I was finally able to devote some time to finishing up some of the boxes. The ten for the school fund raiser were completed last weekend and shipped off to Maryland. Most of the rest are complete and just waiting for a clear finish. I’ll be trying a Watco Danish Oil finish for the first time this weekend on a few of the boxes. http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2011/03/finish-already.html Hopefully I’ll be able to carve out a little time this weekend to work on the handful of box...
