Restoring Carving Tools #2: Dealing With Rust

09-11-2017 01:27 AM by Druid | 13 comments »

OK, this post deals with files rather than carving tools, but it looks like it could easily be tried on any tools. I recently unpacked some tools that had been stored away for quite a while. Among these, there were 2 old flat files that had become somewhat dull and clogged prior to being packed, and were now showing further damage from rust. One thought that I had was to replace these with nice new ones, BUT . . . somewhere, I had heard of a simple, cost effective method of “recondi...

Veritas Combination Plane Comparison #1: Introduction

09-11-2017 12:58 AM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

First off, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank fellow LumberJock Dave Polaschek for inviting me to his shop making this direct comparison possible for us. I do not own the Veritas plane, so I wouldn’t have been able to compare them without his generosity letting me play with his new toy! Second, I’m going to throw out the disclaimer that this was by no means a 100% exhaustive test. We did not do things like study edge retention, sharpening, and haven’t done any prolonged use/testing of the V...

sort-of turning a bowl.

09-09-2017 11:26 PM by Blake Haskins | 1 comment »

So I have been turning bowls for a while, and have become quite competent at this. However a while back I had a bowl that kept breaking, and every time I would have to put it on the lathe and return the mortise for the chuck, as when I fixed it, it would be out of round. eventually I ended up with a mortise bigger than my chuck, so I put the project away, However in this video I attempt to revamp the project, but it just broke again.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGp44kbNhtM&t=51s
