Momi-Giri #2: Yotsume-kiri (four sided) bit

05-26-2018 08:49 PM by aerialcopper | 0 comments »

Here is a simple method for making a “yotsume-kiri”, a gimlet bit for bamboo/wooden nails. For this gimlet, I wanted to use the fewest tools possible. You can see my method for making the handle here. I used annealed 1/8” square 1095 steel key stock which cost $1.08 from McMaster Carr. Any medium or high carbon steel will make a nice bit: O1, W1, A2, 4142 all seem to be available and economical in small sizes. Even mild steel (nails, spokes, etc) would probably be fine fo...

05-21-2018 07:49 AM by aerialcopper | 1 comment »

Hello everyone! I am a new member to lumberjocks, despite having browsed often since 2011 when Roy Underhill inspired me to start woodworking with hand tools in my dorm room at the time… I filled out my profile page if you enjoy walls of text or want to know what I’m doing here now. In short, I’m focused on illustration and design with the intent to spread knowledge about hand tools. There is a lot of traditional hand tool knowledge that bears repeating, yet a lot has...

Hand tools #3: Brace Storage

03-07-2017 03:43 AM by CFrye | 40 comments »

I built a temporary till for the braces (Note: does not include the egg beaters or the breast drills). I counted 15 at the beginning of the build and made it able to hold 17. While loading it this evening I realized there are 2 MIA!It ain’t pretty, but they’re all together…well, they will be, when I find the wanderers. Used some left over siding. Drilled holes and cut the slots on the scroll saw. Filed the rough edges and put on a coat of Black Cherry stain followed by an ap...

You need a wife with expensive taste in shoes, dresses and handbags (most of us have one of those)… and a good supply of vino. Then all you need to do is prime yourself with ple...

Saw Making #4: Gents Saw Conversion Part 3

06-28-2016 04:03 PM by AgentTwitch | 2 comments »

As we move onto Part 3 of The Gents saw conversion tutorial, we focus on cutting the saw plate and drilling the holes for the split nuts. To help us with this endeavor, we will use Dykem Steel Blue, which is used to help make for easy and accurate layout. While the saw plate is away from the saw back, put some layout fluid on top of the plate where you plan to make cuts and drill holes. Make sure you have the teeth facing the correct direction, or you may end up with a Western s...
