Tooling up with estate sales-How to equip your hand-tool shop for pennies on the dollar #4: Tip #10

04-19-2015 03:49 PM by Brad | 0 comments »

Tip #10: Don’t leave before fishing out the good deals.In my experience, my competitors usually go right to the tools. Remember the estate sale I showed up to only to be greeted by the guy with 10 handsaws in his box? That deflated me a little. But I resolved to continue looking around. Come to discover that the 10-saw man left the Jorgenson clamps and forstner bits untouched. At $4.00 each the clamps were a good deal. At the same price the 1” and 2” forstner bits, respectively, were a steal....

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #42: Beefing Up A HF Windsor-Style Workbench

04-19-2015 01:54 PM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

Keeping within the budget and guidelines of my frugal perspective, I opted to take a chance by purchasing a Harbor Freight Windsor-style Workbench last weekend. Over the past two days I have been working on its assembly and beefing it up to meet my needs in the dungeon workshop. I’m sure many serious woodworkers would frown upon my choice, even call me some unsavory things for choosing to go this route. I didn’t go this route because I thought it was an optimum or preferred cho...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #17: Home Stretch- French Polish and Pig Suede

04-19-2015 05:25 AM by shipwright | 39 comments »

Well I’m back home in Canada and after getting a bunch of household maintenance jobs out of the way and spending a very long time getting the surfaces perfectly filled, I have finally started on the finishing. It won’t be long now! Here are a few shots and a couple of videos I made today. At this point there are only two or three bodying sessions in the polish but it is coming up really well. This is the first trial fit of the burgundy pig suede that will...

This guy I do woodworking jobs for, now and then has a machining project that needs to be done, in this case it was his main belt sander, he uses all the time, was need in repair.

Picked up the 3 x 15" blades and talked about their knife grinder

04-18-2015 09:22 PM by Holbs | 5 comments »

Picked up my newly sharpened 15” x 3 knives at the local saw shop ” Apex Saw ” here in Reno/Sparks, NV. They had bouts of rust on them when they were dropped off, now.. magically gone! Some clean up still required (looks like molasses). They have done my Rockwell jointer 6” x 3 knives prior. This time, I asked them how they sharpen knives and blades. And he showed me something I did not suspect. I was thinking, some old guy in the back room with some candles ...

Dust cyclone - with house hold trash bags blog

04-18-2015 05:58 PM by mafe | 11 comments »

Dust cyclonewith house hold trash bags Yes I got tired of the mess each time I had to clean the shop vac when it was full.Also I was fascinated by these cyclones, have to admit I am a child.So when the prices for one of these finally hit the floor here in Europe I had to give it a try. Had two challenges, one that where my shop is, I have to deliver all trash in 15 liters bags, otherwise our trash suction system jams. Second, I wanted it to be standing under my saw, so it could not be t...
