Handplane Restoration #26: Interesting middle of the road approach

12-01-2009 06:12 AM by WayneC | 6 comments »

While looking for a link to Christopher Schwartz’s blog for my review of his book I noticed his most recent blog entry “Vintage Planes are Better than New” and thought the topic was worth sharing here. In the article, he discusses his purchase of a handplane from Steve Nisbett. Steve is a Machinest that buys old planes and rebuilds them. The planes are then sold from his ebay store. The blog article is a quick read and includes a link to Steve Nisbett’s ebay s...

Bandsaw Restoration #1: New Old (Really, Really Old...) Toy

12-31-2009 06:06 AM by Jimi_C | 13 comments »

As I mentioned here, I acquired a new toy last night, which I had been considering for a while. I found this on Craigslist, and I started doing some research on OWWM. As it turns out, Power King was a pretty popular machine maker back in the day, and was acquired by Atlas Press Tool Co. (another pretty popular manufacturer) in the late 40’s. The 912 was sold pretty much as-is by Atlas after that, as you can see from the OWWM page (they look almost identical except for the paint color...

Rescued Wood #14: Beauty IN the Beast

So you take one seriously grotty, old, dry, termite ridden, rotting chunk of gumtree (Eucalyptus).Strip off as much of the rot & termite crud as you can with a crowbar.Slice it on a bandsaw.And admire the beauty within after a little sanding and a quick coat of liquid wax .You never can judge a book by its cover

Burst Pipe #1: The verdict.

02-13-2010 08:12 PM by Sivers | 9 comments »

I mentioned a few days ago about the flooded basment becuase of a frozen water pipe. Things are getting back to normal. We have heat (new furnace) and are slowly digging out from the mountains of stuff piled throughout the house. The basement has dried out nicely. They put in some massive blowers and dehumidifiers and there isn’t any wet spots left in the entire place. Quite a difference from arriving home last Sunday to fiind this mess: Tuesday: This is the emptiest its e...

I erased the first line in this blog 6 times already. I can’t seem to decide if I want to be funny, serious, or both when in fact, I’m neither. Anyway this is supposed to be a woodworking blog about me and my experiances so I think I will just stick to that, OK? So after about 5 years now, I have decided to get back into woodworking again. I have always been into woodworking since I was about 10 years old. I used to build tree forts and all kinds of structures when I was ...

A journey into the workshop. #48: Working on kitchen cabinet re-organization projects...

03-12-2010 11:23 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So as I am a tool junkie, LOML is a Pampered Chef junkie, and over the years, she has accumulated pretty much the entire PC catalog, and in many cases, several of the more important items such as pitchers, bakers, gravy boats and such… Now the problem is, we have a pretty pathetic cabinet layout for the size house we have. So we quickly overran the available storage capacity of the cabinets… Now our upper cabinets do not butt up against the ceiling, but rather match the heig...
