Handplane Restoration #19: Cleaning Parts with Citric Acid

07-10-2007 06:12 AM by WayneC | 28 comments »

Based on an article by James Thompson I found on OldToolsShop.com. I though I woud try using Citric Acid for rust removal. The article can be found at the following link. http://www.oldtoolsshop.com/z_pdf/restore/RemovingRust-CitricAcid-ne.pdf Citric acid is used in food processing and seems to do a good job removing rust. I checked the local yellow pages and found a local beer home brewing store. I called them and confirmed that I could purchase citric acid for $5 per pound. I made...

Looks like I haven’t posted many projects of late. I got so much done this spring, projects wise, have I really been up to nothing lately? How can I call myself a woodworker if I’m not spending anytime in the shop. Have I really been slacking? Surely not. I mean, I don’t think so… If I stretch my brain a bit… the past comes into slightly clearer focus…. aha! I’ve been working at wrapping up my in-laws three-season porch. It’s been a long work...

Not much time this week – this will probably be my only blog entry – maaaaybe one other evening this week I will have a bit of time back in the shop? Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to get anything ready for the summer challenge :( Sized all the drawer sides to length Practiced on scraps with the PC jig (4212) on through dovetails for the drawer sides to back joinery. It’s a little more complicated on through dovetails (more steps, flipping templat...

Entertainment Center #6: Back in the Saddle

07-10-2007 04:20 AM by Dano | 1 comment »

Well, I made it back into the shop this weekend, fingers are a bit tender and that slowed me down a tad but I did make some saw dust. I also got a package on Friday from Amazon with my new Kreg (small gloat) miter gauge in it. It went together fast and according to my engineer’s square was right on the money. Building this entertainment center is a true learning experience. I want to get it built but I keep getting side tracked to build other items to aid in the making of the entertainment...

"Art-Full Wood Beauties" --by RusticWoodArt

07-09-2007 01:36 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Art-full Wood Beauties ....my passion for wood, is the evident re-turning of a souls imagination, that has seen into the grains of all good, having declared there is a place of spirit knowing no-limitation…. ....my place of substance comes from before my beginning, and as i am now played out before the eyes of other’s, so also will be the moments of my endless giving, while ages roll past as i am drawn into the eternal ether’s…. ....and then there came th...

Shop Tools #7: Today's Finds - July 8 2007

07-09-2007 12:49 AM by WayneC | 8 comments »

Today was the monthly antique sale here in Sacramento. I got a few interesting things and almost got something I’ve been looking for. I pulled a Fulton #2 sized plane out of a box of old planes. I asked how much and was told $180. Perhaps for a nice Stanley, but for that kind of money I would have been better off buying an Lie-Nielson. Such is life. I came across a box of Saws and picked 3 out. I’m starting to look for a few good saws and these look like they could be res...

Workshop Make-Over #5: Final Configuration

07-08-2007 07:44 PM by Tony | 7 comments »

So the Update in now 85% finished and I think it was worth it. Time will tell, I have to get used to the workbench and the tools being in the new location. Here are a couple of photographs of the work space T-Boxes, the Unisaw and the workbench. Just need a coat of wax tomorrow morning and is ready to go. The longest and hardest job – was cutting the extended tracks and fitting the aluminium inserts in the out-feed table. They are perfectly aligned and I get NO binding at all...
