The Tool Gathering Odessy #11: Where Was THIS When I Needed It?

11-21-2008 10:25 PM by Tomcat1066 | 5 comments »

Some time back, I was finally able to pick up a Disston dovetail saw. If I remember correctly, these are rare animals out in the wild to some extent, and I paid more than I really wanted to. Again, this was a while back so I may be remembering this wrong. I do remember it being a pain in the butt trying to snag one off eBay. This difficulty of finding decent vintage saws at reasonable prices, coupled with the cost of new dovetail saws that are worth a flip, have been one of the driving ...

"New" Table Saw #4: Zero Clearance Insert

11-21-2008 05:50 AM by Jon Parker | 2 comments »

Kind of slow going here as I design the Table Saw cabinet just the way I want it. I’ve been trying to find a zero clearance insert for the table saw, but have been unsuccessful since it’s so old and Craftsman has since changed their inserts. I finally found one online, but it was $20 + shipping and handling. I remember seeing an episode of New Yankee Workshop (one of my favorites) that showed making a zero clearance insert from wood and a flush router bit. So instead I dro...

Take A Picture, It Might Last Longer

11-21-2008 05:01 AM by trifern | 10 comments »

This is the piece I turned this evening. It is some very green maple. By the time I was finishing it up, it started getting hairline cracks all over it. This is one of the risks you take turning green wood. I decided to take a picture of it. After all it might last longer. I ran it under cool tap water to rehydrate it and placed it in a brown paper bag to finish drying. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. I hope it works out, I kind of like the shape.

11-21-2008 01:05 AM by Joe Watson | 2 comments »

I have a Craftsman jointer/planer that has a model number of 113.232211 this wasn’t the standard model. the motor is mounted inside the main part of the jointer. I cant find a manual or information on when the thing was built. it works great though and I am not disappointed I bought it.

Vintage Seigh for Christmas

11-20-2008 09:36 PM by Karson | 12 comments »

I had seen this vintage sleigh in Wood magazine some time ago and I had to go searching to find it again. It was in December 1997, Issue 101 I believe that I’ve seen it somewhere else but I didn’t want to buy the article without searching further. One of the new officers at the Woodworking Club thought he might have it. He did and he brought the magazine to me and i scanned it and created a pdf for future use and to keep from cutting up his magazine. The sleigh was found at ...

Ponderings #20: The Problem with B&D Firestorm Stuff

11-20-2008 08:25 PM by Tomcat1066 | 10 comments »

I’m shopping on the ‘net earlier today and found myself at the BORGs’ sites. I’m in the market for a new jig saw and a router (yeah…need a few tailed apprentices to make woodworking a bit more enjoyable for the time being). One of the saws was the Black & Decker jig saw. At about $60 less than the Dewalt or Bosch I was looking at, it had all the same features or a few more. Here’s the problem. None of the specs actually tells you how it works in ...
