Hand Tool Journey #6: Stanley No. 62 Low Angle Jack

11-17-2009 09:13 AM by Blake | 15 comments »

Stanley No. 62 Low Angle Jack Plane Some of the modern high end hand tool manufacturers have been marketing “low angle jack planes” for years now like it is something nobody has ever thought of before. I mean, I had never heard of a low angle jack before I started reading reviews on Lie Nielson and Veritas versions in Popular Woodworking Magazine. Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane: And of course we all know that Stanley, the most famous maker of quality hand tools has SERI...

Shop Organization #11: New Shop Layout with Photos

11-17-2009 07:01 AM by gizmodyne | 12 comments »

Old PicsI was not getting anywhere with my prior shop setup in which I had moved the workbench in front of the doors.d This did enable me to walk around the workbench, but blocked the door. The saw was set up in the middle of the room at a diagonal to allow for longer cuts. Trash and junk from projects had reached critical mass. So I pulled a bunch of the equipment out onto the porch, New PicsI pushed stuff around for a few hours and ingested a cup or so of dust while I swept. Here ar...

Finished the Research and Making a WorkBench! #9: Dead Ladies story..

11-17-2009 03:52 AM by RichClark | 0 comments »

The dead man Fits between the Top and the bottom stretcher and is used to hold longer lumber so that you can work the edges comfortably. You’ll see this makes sense once you see it finished and in place… SO Lets make it… If you remember, I offset the Cut for the big dado cut on the top 5/8 from the edge and 5/8 for the width… First you make two pieces…. A back and a front that are 21” and 22” tall ( For my table Height, you need to measure thes...

Finished the Research and Making a WorkBench! #8: Fit the legs and make the streachers

11-17-2009 03:07 AM by RichClark | 3 comments »

When I was being proactive on this I had just finished the top, chopped the leg mortises and cut the deadman riser groove. This is a pictorial of fitting the rails… The rails are all cut from the same stock and the only special piece is the front Rail.. you cut the others all to 3” and the Front rail is Proud by 1/2 an inch. you set up your Saw to 45 and Rip the Front outside rail putting a Point ^ on it. This is where the deadman will ride. I like to clamp stuff and then ...

Starting a Woodworking Business #12: More work & I'M A GRANDPA!!!

11-17-2009 02:41 AM by Sam Yerardi | 21 comments »

This past weekend was amazing! I’d been busy all week and Friday my mom calls me (she’s 86) and said her dog had been hit by a car. The local vet didn’t feel comfortable doing the operation it needed so I drove it to the Ohio State University vet hospital 2 hours away. They operated, and the dog is going to be ok. I was up all night and when I got home at 7:30 in the morning, I went to bed. My wife called me from work and said our daughter and son in law were on their w...

It just takes up to dang much room. Eventually the left hand side of this wall will be home to my chop saw station with a lumber rack above and cut off...

First Box #1: Planning

11-16-2009 10:55 PM by Bret | 2 comments »

I’m getting ready to build a box for my wife, based in no small part on several designs I’ve seen here and incorporating elements of many of them. I’m at the planning stage, trying to figure out how to best use the lumber available to me for this project. I’ve got some walnut, a good piece (36” x 6” – 3/4) of curly maple and another (48” x 3 7/8” – 3/4) of Tigre Caspi. Plus a ton of walnut and oak. I’d like to feature the...

tragedies #4: Jimi_C nails it - my planer suffered a blown bearing

11-16-2009 09:06 PM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

In my last post, I mentioned my planer seizing up entirely. I couldn’t move the belts, and I couldn’t spin the knife wheel. I also talked about how insanely built the Craftsman 13” is, and I still stand behind that. I think taking apart my Toyota pickup’s engine might be less involved. I finally found the secret under the black slide-in plastic caps that the top rods sit in. There were access ports that let me undo some hex screws and finally lift off the top shrouds (...
