Hand tool tips and tricks #9: Alternate use for a wheel guage

03-09-2013 03:42 PM by RGtools | 6 comments »

I am very partial to wheel style gauges. Not only do they leave a crisp lines but you can use them as an extended and delicate routing plane for all sorts of fine operations. Hear I am using it to get a hinge installed. Try it out some time. Ryan

Huge Estate Sale - 300+ Planes!

01-22-2013 03:31 AM by grfrazee | 2 comments »

This past weekend there was an estate sale in Ottawa, IL. The owner of the estate apparently was a huge tool collector, because there were more planes on sale there than I’ve ever seen in my life. For example, the owner had five No. 113s, at least five #12s, more block and bench planes than I could keep track of, and the ever elusive and ever-so-tiny Stanley #1. Since I’ve been looking for a few things, I figured I might as well make the 1:15 drive from Downers Grove and ...

For Fun projects #1: Golden Ratio Gauge.

11-01-2012 01:11 AM by JC Boysha | 1 comment »

So, I haven’t told you all this yet, but I’m a huge fan of Steve Ramsey at Woodworking for Mere Mortals. I was watching one of his videos and I noticed he made a Golden Ratio (or Phi) Gauge. This gauge is used to determine the proportions of an object so that it matches the Golden Ratio, which is considered a mathematical model for perfect beauty. I’m also a fan of Finite Mathematics. WARNING MATH CONTENT AHEAD! <math>Phi is a mathematical concept. It’s a cons...

I thought it was about time I made myself a ‘Fibonacci Gauge’ and like most of us would I looked up on how everyone else did it. There were some great efforts made by fellow Jocks on the subject;David made a good crack at it http://lumberjocks.com/David/blog/1639so did FJPetruso http://lumberjocks.com/projects/37696and my good buddy Karson http://lumberjocks.com/projects/24528 Karson has his Excel spreadsheet for calculating gauges at any size. This is w...

Beads Box #6: Incra Style Box Joint Jig/Sled for the Table Saw (998SE)

12-31-2010 02:15 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

While waiting for glue to dry I tackled the large drawer that will be faced with the mahogany/maple-stripe front. After the last project where I used dovetails for all the small drawer I wisened up (is that a word?!?) and went with box joint. My box joint jig is based on my Incra 998SE Miter gauge . The 1000SE comes with the flip stop which is very useful with 2 built in stops, and a micro adjustment which I use to sneak up to a perfect box joint fit. For added stability I also use the...

Work(shop) in Progress #16: Incra 998SE Miter Gauge

08-20-2008 04:42 AM by PurpLev | 11 comments »

So I am building a box frame using box-joints. I have my Incra 1000SE miter gauge setup with the stop block to cut the side pieces to length, and I’m all done with that. Time to cut the box joints. So I swap the blade on the table saw with my new (only used once before) Dado blade, I attach my homemade high fence for making box joints onto the Incra 1000 fence, and I’m ready to start cutting. If you’ve followed the details up to this point – you might have ...

New toys from Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo

11-14-2007 05:55 PM by Nils | 4 comments »

On Saturday I went to the Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo, California. I dragged along a friend who’s done some woodworking (he’s taking a class at the Palo Alto Adult Ed, which apparently has an awesome shop) but who didn’t want to buy anything. I made up for this by spending my entire budget. I had a list of things I “needed” – and I kept pretty close to the list, although my dollar didn’t stretch as far as I’d hoped it would. Anyway, here’...
