Vintage Hand Tools #2: The Keen Kutter K5 Plane

12-01-2011 01:44 AM by Brandon | 18 comments »

The first bench plane that I purchased was a Buck Bros jack plane. I bought it at Home Depot on a whim. I typically like to research products before purchasing them, but I failed to do that with this plane. It looked nice enough, but I didn’t really know what to look for at the time. Alas, my Buck Bros plane was a big disappointment because I didn’t know how to tune it up and it left a rough, chunky finish on the wood. I wanted to know what was so special about those hand planes that everyone...

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.

Review of Tropical Exotic Hardwoods of Latin America

03-12-2012 02:08 AM by jusfine | 6 comments »

As we were taking in some rays in the Palm Springs area last month, I had the urge to see some lumber or tools, and realized it was not a long drive to Carlsbad California to the Tropical Exotic Hardwoods supplier. Their website is here It was relatively easy to find with GPS, and the warehouse was large and well lit. There were a few customers while we were there (about an hour), but it was not really busy – it was a week day around lunch time. They had ...

Ok, so the time has come to me starting to get serious about getting the Unisaw that I bought last year up an running. I am looking for some parts that were missing (blade guard, dust door and motor cover) but since I only paid $150. for a running saw, I can overlook the missing pieces. On to my question, I called Delta to find out the year saw I have. They couldn’t find it. I went to and from what I found there was kind of vague. Serial number is 15-6755. F...

Bedrock 603 re-animation #2: Body Repair

05-04-2012 10:53 PM by thetree | 8 comments »

Here I will explain how I repaired the main crack in the body. Actually, It is more of a repair of a horrendous repair job. Here is a good view of what I was working with: Sandblasted view of the “repaired” section: Sawcut through old repair: Layout of section I need to replace: Milling section to be replaced: While I had one side open, I figured I would take the time to straighten up the front of the mouth. As I said, the mouth was considerably squeezed closed at...
