Hand Tool Journey #28: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #2.. Tear Down..

2 days ago by Airframer | 7 comments »

Late last night while waiting for Game of Thrones to come on (don’t judge me!) I spend a couple hours taking this apart and separating all the parts in labeled bags. The 2 up rights were frozen in their bases and this is where everything went horribly wrong when I was taking apart my 358 so I wanted to be careful not to snap off the threaded end. Off to WallyWorld I went and returned with some Marvel Mystery Oil. Cut it 50/50 with some mineral spirits in a spray bottle, sp...

Workshop Development #102: Project planning on how to eat an elephant.

2 days ago by dbhost | 7 comments »

The blogger entry is here for those that want to see the graphics and the nitty gritty details… Plenty to be found there… Right now, being somewhat time constrained with other priorities, and as other projects are ongoing, I am squeezing in design time, and planning to complete what is left of my shop storage / organization tear as it were. I am working on fine tuning the details, but ...

Chess board with outlined squares

3 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, Joe asked me to create a little Blog about how I created my chess board. I’m happy to do so. I’ll just remind everyone that when you are seated at the board, the corner square to your right is white. I’ll edit this post this week to add illustrations. Truth being told, the cutting board and box makers are far better at this than I. This design is just a basic cutting board without using end grain. I didn’t allow for expansion so the whole thing may just explode on me one day. Us...

Workshop update

3 days ago by oldretiredjim | 4 comments »

Debated adding this because I did the work on the cheap and it is not up the standards of many – but here goes anyway. As a retired guy I can’t afford to hire labor so it had to be made from stuff I could work with on my own. And except of the door had to be done on what I got for my 30 YO boat. In my workshop entry I described how I got from 2004 to 2010. Seems like yesterday but it was 4 years ago. Last year I sold my boat and that set the stage for the current shop proje...

Hand Tool Journey #27: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #1.. What have we got here?

3 days ago by Airframer | 5 comments »

Just received a Sweetheart era #246 Miter Box. It is in decent working order but really needs a good cleaning to get everything moving like it should again. My original plan was to clean and be done with it but… like usual I can’t just leave well enough alone. Here is the state it arrived in.. Complete with the trip mechanism! Saw is in great shape with no obvious signs of pitting.. only the tote needs help. It also arrived with one of the 2 stop ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1297: A Milestone for Me

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

A couple of months back, I began working on something that kind of got side tracked. We all have projects like that. We start out like a ball of fire and then something gets in the way and deadlines come up and holidays come and before we know it, our project is tucked neatly (or sometimes not so neatly) into a corner. While I know that there are some people who won’t start another project until one is finished, I am not like that. I usually have a couple of things on the go at o...

Workbench Build #6: Mmmm, bacon

3 days ago by Mark Kornell | 2 comments »

I finished routing out dog holes. Here’s what the jig looked like clamped over one of the roughed-out holes: Pretty straightforward, taking 1/16” or less off each side. A bit more work on the head recess, but way easier than hogging out the whole hole with the router. The darker area on the top of the jig is wax. And here’s what I mean by bacon: Those two boards should be flat and fit together without gaps! Instead I have 3/4” warpage over 4”. I wa...
