Spring clamp Tip

08-20-2012 09:50 AM by bigchopperoo | 7 comments »

My spring clamps have a lot of miles on them. Which mean that little plastic coating on the end is gone. And sometimes i need that on the clamp. So here is a little tip which replaces that. If you like the video, we post new ones every Thursday at our youtube channel. www.youtube.com/bigchopperoo

Tools #1: Disston D8's and Warrented Superior logging saw..

07-15-2012 10:39 PM by GlennsGrandson | 0 comments »

I picked up two Disston D-8 handsaws with thumbhole at an auction today. $27.50 for about 12 saws. Two which were these Disston and one smaller one had a Warranted Superior button (not pictured). I took these three saws, filtered through the rest and a lady (the one who bid me up) bought the rest of them from me for $3 (I didn’t want the rest of the garbage). They are pretty rough shape. The one with the painted handle has a decent etching under the rust yet. From the website http://www...

Tool Gloat!

06-02-2012 01:55 AM by Ryan Haasen | 7 comments »

My parent’s friend’s business shut down and they were selling all of the assets tomorrow in sort of a garage-sale way. So tonight my Dad and I went in there to take a look at what they had. They had multiple tools, and some useful for woodworking. So we started making a pile. The first thing that caught my eye was a Porter-Cable router and a bunch of router bits and accessories. The accessories included bits, flush-trim bits, 1/2” and 1/4” collets and more. I have b...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #11: Reclaiming a Tambour Door

05-03-2012 12:23 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 16 comments »

If you’ve been following along, the space at the bottom left of the cabinet is reserved for install of a tambour (roll-up) door salvaged from the donor Hoosier cabinet. Not certain what will ultimately live in that cubby re: tools, but it’s inspired by a tambour’d cabinet Stanley sold in the 30s. New, red oak tambour doors (15”x17”) cost more than $80 per. Wow, didn’t know what a treasure I had back when I reduced the donor cabinet to a stack of component p...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #9: Carcase Glue-up!

04-30-2012 02:35 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 22 comments »

Oh, yeah, it’s time to stop cutting bait and ‘fish’ for a next-level assembly with this project. In other words, this carcase has been apart and together a bunch of times for marking, cutting, and fitting rabbets and dados. All of those shelves and partitions are at the ready; there’s nothing more do do with the carcase apart that can’t just as well be done while it’s together. In the meantime, I have T&G back-cabinet material as well as face framing th...

Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

11-22-2011 07:29 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...

A tool for clamping a wide variety of joints

10-19-2011 02:39 PM by davesblokkz | 8 comments »

When working on my various woodworking projects I found times that I had to glue odd joints and really didn’t have the clamps I needed. The solution to the problem was the development of a clamping block that simplified clamping these uncommon joints. The Universal Clamping Block tool will let you clamp the usual miters and and frames but will also facilitate the clamping of a great variety of other joints that occur in woodworking projects that present special clamping problems. ...

Hand Tools: Thrift Stores, Hock Shops and Garage Sale acquisitions #1: Clamps and Pliers

04-22-2011 11:35 PM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

Used tools: Often a great bargain, occasionally a spectacular bargain, sometimes a puzzle, rarely but delightfully a chance to acquire something with soul and a story to go along with it. Clamps are certainly about the least glamorous of all our toys, er, tools. But you can’t have enough, as the adage goes, and because they don’t make noise or sawdust or plug in, they don’t have much emotional draw. I’ve managed to bridge that and make it a passion to find an...

Templates #4: Google Sketchup Designs (clamps)

04-14-2011 01:41 AM by dakremer | 2 comments »

Hey guys. Just fooling around tonight. Found this Clamp here on Lumberjocks. Thought I’d make a Google Sketchup file for it. Anyone need any Google Sketchup Designs just let me know and I’ll see if I can help you! (if you want the file for this clamp, just PM me and I’ll send it to you through email) Make sure to check out the other blogs in this series – if there are any templates you can’t seem to figure out how to draw (on the compu...
