Old Power Tools #1: Antique Sears Craftsman Jointer

1878 days ago by GaryCN | 17 comments »

I have a few very old tools, This one was not in the view of my workshop photo’s. I’m somewhat proud that I acquired it at a garage sale for about $25 ten years ago and it is still working. I made the stand,that has a chip collection basket in the center door. I did purchase it without any motor. I’m guessing that it was made in the early 1960’s. The nameplate does say Sears Roebuck and Co. Simpson-Sears LTD.

Hand Tools doings #26: Finally sharp!

1844 days ago by Betsy | 4 comments »

While I’ve had a modicum of success sharpening my chisels, I have finally got the hang of it and actually got my chisels sharp enough to cut the fine hair on my arm and pare end grain!!!!! Yippee!!!! My pictures stink (those digital cameras still take talent!). But you can make out that the fibers are cut not crushed. I used a combination of methods – some I used my WorkSharp and some I used my waterstones. I think my waterstones came out just as good or better than ...

1826 days ago by lumberjacques | 3 comments »

What about a wood swapping area? For instance, I have access to ALL sorta Maple, but not to, for instance, Oak, or other types of wood. maybe swapping chunks via snail mail would be a good idea.

First cabinets #2: Face frames completed

1789 days ago by Mark Gipson | 9 comments »

The weather has been kind to me again today and I was able to get outside and do some more work on the cabinets for my shop and kitchen.Today I built and fitted the face frames to both kitchen cabinets. Here are some construction details for those interested. The cabinets sides and bottoms are 3/4” Thai plywood, the backs are 8mm ply (the wood here is mainly in metric sizes).I used my router to cut dados in the sides for the bottom which was then fixed in place with glue and s...

Step-back Cupboard Build #8: Cut nails and scant holes

1763 days ago by rwyoung | 2 comments »

Cut nails and scant holes. Everybody has a set of gimlets just gathering dust in the junk drawer, right? I know I could have used a twist bit and the cordless drill and zipped right through these but this seemed like so much more fun. A set of gimlets isn’t very expensive and I can see where they would come in handy in confined spaces and tight corners. I also got my cut nails last week. Ordered them from Tremont Nail Company . Played around a little bit with a few before star...

Observations #11: Does It Really Matter?

1748 days ago by Russel | 30 comments »

I am a fan of LumberJocks. Particularly in it’s current form, because it has pretty much been this way since I joined. That was a little more than 9,000 members ago and not quite two years. It may be me, but lately it seems that there have been a number of posts saying that people should be stopped. People should be stopped from posting so many projects. People should be stopped from making so many comments. People should be stopped from greetings newcomers. People should be st...

Table saw modification allows 40 + inch cross cut!!

1729 days ago by eastside | 2 comments »

I wanted a way to cut large sheet stock for cabinet backs, bookcases or whatever and can’t buy a sliding table saw so I made one—sort of. I started by gluing 4 pieces of Oak together and finished it off at 2×2 ¼. With that in clamps I drilled 3 holes in the table leaf 5/16 of an inch. Cut the Oak to 35 inches and attached it to the table holding it lower about 1/16 so not to interfere with the everyday life of the saw. I used T-bolts and let them in about ¼ inch. ...

On the move!

1693 days ago by TheWoodenBox | 2 comments »

Well, I’m on the move again. I’ve decided to move my workshop back to the garage. After a long time thinking about it (and about a weeks worth of cleaning) I’m going to make the move. This came about, when I went to “the shop” and found that my scrollsaw had a nice layer of rust on the table. Instead of trying to find the money to insulate the shed, I would just move to a place that is already insulated and heated and cooled.
