Stevenson Projects Weekender Sailboat Build #10: Keel Completed...bottom "dry fit" onto keel...

12-30-2010 11:26 PM by Napaman | 28 comments »

Okay…as promised from blog #9 are some building shots… Since building the Boat Tent ...I was able to finish up the keel…I trued the rest of the top edge…more of the bottom edge and cleaned up the stem so it looks a lot better. I also went back and sanded down the excess epoxy on the boat bottom…figuring it will be easier now then when the boat is officially down on the keel…little less time on the knees down the road. However the most importa...

"Why is This Car Parked in My Shop?" Turning My One Car Garage Into A Shop #4: Wheeled stand for my new planer

12-30-2010 10:42 PM by Brad_Nailor | 4 comments »

My new Steel City Helical head Planer is on the way…unfortunately, I waited too long to place the order and it wont be here till Monday. But, that leaves me plenty of time to build a stand for it. I was going to put it on the furniture dolly my borrowed planer lived on, but I would rather have it bolted to a wheeled stand I can just move into position and plug it in to power and dust collection. I considered buying one…ya, for about ten seconds! I designed this stand based on the ...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #2: Cleaning Brass and making it shine!

12-30-2010 08:36 PM by Dan | 19 comments »

Many old planes and tools featured brass elements such as screw caps, adjustment wheels ext ext. In most cases you cant even tell that its brass because of how dirty it is.
