I’m looking to make a replacement blade for a hollow auger. I know the blade is one inch wide. I do not know thickness or length as the auger has not arrived yet. If anyone has one of these hollow augers, could they post a photo of the blade? Also, I would be interested to know if anyone knows of a source for these blades. I am assuming one will have to be made but it does not hurt to ask. Example of what the blade looks like.
I got this 5” sweep brace as part of an eBay tool lot. This is actually the first brace I have seen with this small of a sweep. It is marked “Jameson and Co. Warrantied”. I Googled the company and only found one reference for the company name. It was from Newcastle UK. If any of the UK Lumberjocks have any info I would greatly appreciate it. This is a photo of the brace with my 6” Millers Falls #34 so you can see the size of the brace.
During this Sketchup show I go through a balancing wine bottle holder. This has my most recent measurements that I use and also a link for my actual “How to make a wine bottle holder” video. That video was my first ever on YouTube. Check out the Sketchup video HERE.
Happy Mothers’ Day everyone! Finally got a chance to go back to my parents’ house for the weekend (i.e., the location of my shop). Went into the shop and this is what my bench looked like: Looks like my dad has been at work in the 2.5 months I’ve been away. No surprises there. I made a pair of holdfasts in a blacksmithing class last fall. When I made them, I tried to round them down to about 3/4”. Since they aren’t necessarily a standard size sha...
I just started making a cabinet for the bottles we have in the laundry room (soap, softener, etc …) I have to make new doors for all the kitchen cabinets, so, this project will be used as a test for an a idea I had. It is made from MDF, and the doors will have some slots, imitating some sort of raised panel. I’m really happy of the progress so far. Next task will be painting it. Here is the video I made of it … (sorry, it’s in spanish, but feel free to ask if ...
I’ve had this one on the back burner for a …while… but with family etc never had time to finalize it properly until now, but am very excited with what this one can do. what is it? It’s a new plugin for SketchUp (no longer Google SketchUp as they sold it to Trimble). This one is for making/drilling holes. consider it a cordless drill or sorts combined with one of those shelving pins drilling jigs to align and distribute holes in a straight line at even spacing. ...
On the router table, cleaned up the face of the peghead and finished the rest of the truss rod routing, and drilled the hole through the neck for the electronics (totally stoked, I drilled the diagonal by hand and managed to hit with my ¼” pilot hole dead on, then worked up to ½” total). Then with a deep breath and a few carefully placed Dominos, glued the sucker up. Daniel is way stoked.
