Extremely Average #219: I made another jig

1443 days ago by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

Hello LJ’s, Today I made a jig to hold my belt sander upside down for detail work. I love building jigs. It is fun and when the jig is done, I have a new way to do woodworking. I love this stuff. I named my belt sander today, and did some other fun stuff too. Brian

Tool Overview #1: Stanley 12-920 Block Plane

1416 days ago by David Craig | 9 comments »

Evening Folks, Like many of my fellow LJ’ers, I started out with power tools and have started to develop an interest in hand tools. I have been picking up some odds and ends, when both the wallet and the need permits. I received an early birthday present from the wife, partly as a thank you for helping her with all of the cleanup and move after the apartment fire. I have been looking at the Stanley 6 1/4 contractor block plane at Lowes and have been himing and hawing on whether or no...

Scary sharp? Or barely sharp, but learning

1366 days ago by Cato | 7 comments »

So had the day off today and thought I would take the time and try out the glass and wet/dry sharpening system that I got to attempt to sharpen my new and old planes. Set up and went with coarse 220 to 600 grit and then went to fine grits 1000,1200,1500. I have 2000 but did not try that yet. I should back up and say that I am going to have to read more about bench planes and their adjustments, as I have very little experience with them. I did manage to take them apart and put them b...

Built-In Bed #5: A Thin Veneer of Civilization

1343 days ago by Scott R. Turner | 2 comments »

After work today I headed for the garage/workshop to veneer the plywood edges of the large panels. But first I moved everything to the edges of the garage and swept out the sawdust and shavings. It was a sizable pile (with a few Fall leaves mixed in): I trotted it out to the compost bin, which gets plenty of green waste but is always happy for a some atomized wood. Each of the large panels for the built-in bed has three-ply thick raw edge like so: Today’s pro...

Building My Work Shop #8: Belsaw Molder Planer or Another Craigslist Bargain

1317 days ago by Crushgroovin | 7 comments »

As some of you may know I like to browse craigslist from time to time. Mostly in the morning during the two or three hours it takes to get my body to the point where I can walk without too much pain. Well while browsing for Planers I happened upon a 5 HP single phase Belsaw Molder Planer. The add said it was in working condition but needed some work, the guy was moving shops and didn’t want to move it so it could be had for $300. Now that got me curious about what kind of work it needed...
