As the title says I managed to remove the cutter screw and wheel.Gently tapped the pin that engages the knife from the screw then made a tool to push the “keeper Pin” up in the frame to allow the screw to pass through its opening in the frame.Apparently I have maxed out the upload limit on this blog so I will put a link to a drop box file I can share.https://www.dropbox.com/s/lx4jfgzo6k6cxwn/20160523_185234.jpg?dl=0 Still hoping someone has a #45 with the tote removed and can s...
I decided to add all the project pictures I could find to Lumberjocks before I lose them all. I am sorry for the deluge.
One of the things missing on this site is making knife scales. This is not something I normally do but I bought my wife some knives that required scales and during the process, noticed that we had several knives where the handles looked like crap, were cracked, and even broken. Some of them had really good blades and some were junk (these were tossed). During this process, the knives that I bought from Woodcraft have really nice blades but the rivets were less than desirable, sam...
Quite some time ago, fifteen years or better, I picked up a Stanley #45 Combination Plane. Back then I didn’t know anything about Combination planes. The only plane I owned at the time was a small block plane I bought from Sears in the late 70s. I don’t think I paid more than a couple of dollars for the #45, as it was completely seized up. I remember I could only get one of the many screws to turn at all. When I got it home I sprayed it down with wd-40, wrapped it in a towel an...
Started work on this today. City living has been different and fun, but it also has some drawbacks. It’s nice to have the ability to walk out of the front door to have dinner at any one of 100 places, to get a haircut a block away or to just walk around and take in the activity on the street, but sometimes you just want to sit in the yard and be alone after the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood outside your door. My townhouse, like any other, is connected to the neighbors nex...
https://youtu.be/F_DVxQajLrA Project 3 for my 2016 students. A corner cabinet.
It is now 8:50 pm. I just came in from gluing the wedge piece to the corner block material. From that board I will cut the corner blocks to match exactly the lengths to the skirts from behind the legs. They will be fastened to the skirt, I think, with pocket screws. The skirts will be fastened to the underside of the bottom case panel with pocket screws. The skirts butt up to the legs with beveled ends at 45 degrees. I forget how I fastened the legs to the bottom board. I will look at tw...
I started building this cabinet with the idea that It would organize all my miscellaneous tools that were spread out all over my shop. If it ends up not looking awful when complete that would be a bonus as well. Not being ugly was going to be a challenge since Im just using whatever scrap wood I have laying around. I had the rough idea that I wanted it to look somewhat like a traditional hand tool cabinet, but was planning on using it for machine accessories primarily. It’s loc...
Once I freed up a few clamps it was simply a matter of adding the end edge, Screwed in a center strengthening strip and it was done for a while awaiting for the glue to dry. By afternoon I had it finished construction wise and just edge finishing required so I ran around the sides with a template router bit, filled the various holes then sanded to finish and applied sanding sealer. Filled a few holes but left the resin vein The other end Thats it for blog s...
