Restoring a Number 7 Bailey Jointer Plane #4: Before and After pictures, and some shavings

08-10-2013 03:30 AM by MrFid | 5 comments »

Back again! It’s been a little while since I posted on this thread about restoring a Stanley Bailey No 7 jointer. I had basically finished the plane last episode, but I hadn’t gotten around to taking pictures (too busy jointing wood, I guess!). Before I post pictures of the final product, I should say that the tote is still broken. I tossed around the idea of making my own, to the point even where I downloaded specs that would have allowed me to do it. However, here’...

09-28-2013 08:42 AM by Serradura | 2 comments »

Now, how strange it is to be all alone in your workshop, nobody around, just you, your tools and your video camera and still being nervous. Knowing that you are going to share that video with the world makes you feel watched and although you can do it over and over again until you got it right, still your feeling embarrassed while making mistakes. Maybe that insecurity will become less overtime…. I didn’t withhold me from making the second video on the 4 year long journey of re...

Veneer inlay work #1: Making your own veneer inlay

You may have noticed some of my projects are veneer inlay enhancedThe inlays I use are mostly made by myself, for the more complex medallion’s and the likes they are store bought. Today I was busy making some veneer inlay stock, the activity was prompted by a few posts from rogerbean and the boxes he has made.The edging he used on the boxes fascinated me so I attempted to reproduce the effect I am not sure how it was made for his projects but I muddled my way through to partly re...

02-09-2014 04:24 PM by terryR | 8 comments »

Hi everyone, just wanted to share some quick results from a recent product experiment…Turtle Wax Rubbing Compound. Nearly everyone I know cleans vintage tools with some combination of BLO, soap, and spirits…or a secret solution containing one of the above.
