Another Yard Sale…Another Saw…..

07-11-2016 02:21 PM by handsawgeek | 2 comments »

This weekend, I happened to visit another local yard sale where they happened to have a small selection of tools. I picked up this old Disston D8 Crosscut saw for $2.00 !! A little rusty, but it is still extremely sharp like it had been only minimally used. Adding this to the growing pile of hand saws waiting to be refurbed. With this ever-increasing arsenal of saws, I really need to get off my duff and get a new saw vise built, but I’ve got so many irons in the fire right now, th...

Inside car Bicycle mounts

07-11-2016 11:12 AM by stefang | 15 comments »

BackgroundMy Son and DIL are having a cycling holiday in France. The are taking a car ferry to Denmark and then driving through Germany to France the rest of the way. Their bikes are very expensive and so they weren’t too keen on having them mounted on the outside of the car on the roof or on the back as they are worried about theft and also stability since they have carbon fiber frames which are easily damaged if they get bumped into. The solutionMy son found that there is room for ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1743: I'm BACK!!

07-11-2016 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It has been a crazy couple of weeks! Even though I didn't get much 'work' done, I don't think I have ever worked harder in  my life. Perhaps it is because I am a touch older now (EGADS!) Or maybe it was because this was the first time that I had to not only move myself, but a moderately successful business as well. It certainly entailed much more than I had anticipated. But all went well and there were barely any hiccups in the process. We were fortunate in so many r...

Dave Talks #2: What, no woodworking? A tour of a disasterously messy shop.

07-11-2016 03:51 AM by dbhost | 8 comments »

In today’s video I answer the viewer question from my last video. What, no woodworking? My regular readers / viewers know why, but I illustrate in it’s full ugliness a very dirty shop that is simply too hot, and too dangerous to work in. Native Texans laugh at me for not handling the heat, to which I say Guilty! What can I say? Anyway I take you for a quick spin through my shop, and show you exactly why I haven’t exactly had woodworking projects to share Mind you...

Jointer #2: De-rusting

07-10-2016 10:22 PM by mIps | 2 comments »

Well, I finally had a chance to start tackling the jointer cleanup. luckily the in/out-feed tables were fairly clean and had only light rust. I took two passes with rust cleaner on both and then a light sand with WD-40 as “lubricant”. They cleaned right up and look good. The cutter head is a different story. It’s more rusted and harder to clean. I did the best I could with a wire brush and a green scrub pad. I’ll know later if I helped any in getting the old blades ou...

I’ve hardly got the thing started and wish I had done it way different. Starting to run out of nice wood and don’t want to put any $$$ into this car so thought I would try one out of some pine shelving and 2×4s.If worst comes to worst I’ll paint it never ever done one of those before so why not. lolI know ducky I got the oxygen waiting on you over in the corner. One thing I’m already noticing is it’s going to take some doing to keep the dings out ...

Outfeed and assembly table with tool stations - small shop challenge #4: Outfeed table done

07-10-2016 03:05 PM by Mike_D_S | 7 comments »

I spent most of yesterday finishing up the outfeed table. I started by making up a small alignment plate for the doghole drilling. The plate was basically two rows of dogholes in the spacing needed. I clamped the plate to the end of the top and drilled the first 8 holes. Then I slid the plate over one row and used some birch dowel through a couple of dogholes in the plate and the top to line up the second row to drill nd clamped the plate. Drill the next row, then repeat by indexing th...

Rehabbing Three Early British Handsaws

07-10-2016 05:13 AM by summerfi | 9 comments »

Rehabbing Three Early British Handsaws When you talk about restoring old handsaws, different people have varying thoughts about what that means. Some people think you should restore a saw to a shiny bright condition almost like new. Others feel that you should do the minimum necessary to make the saw functional again. There is no right answer; it’s simply a matter of personal choice. I’ve restored a lot of saws, and when I do, I usually try to return them to a condition as close to origina...
