Shop Remodel #8: It's Monday, Back to the Ole Grind.

12-01-2015 12:41 AM by bearkatwood | 14 comments »

It’s Monday and it’s back to the ole grind I go. This is another blog in my ongoing series to remodel my shop and make a saw till, drill press cabinet, tool cabinet, plane till and workbench. I have been woodworking for 16+ years and have always done my work in dark, dusty caves on anything that would resemble a bench. I have finally decided to spoil myself and go hog wild doing it. I wanted to bring you all along as I made these pieces as it will be a very epic build. I have ...

Robert Sorby ProEdge look alike

03-23-2016 09:29 PM by Dutchy | 13 comments »

A couple of years ago I bought my lathe. From time to time I use him as a lathe (mostly he is used as a disksander) and in particular for cylinders. For making the cylinders I use TC tools with changeable knives. I also have a couple of HSS turning tools. Till now I could not sharpen them as I would like. I like the Robert Sorby ProEdge, but with a price of more than Euro 600 too expensive for me. So last week I decided to give it a try to build my own and for me it was successful. Started...

Making your own parting tool

05-18-2010 02:14 PM by David Craig | 12 comments »

Been awhile since I have had any quality time in the shop, so I decided to invest some vacation time and I will be taking a week off next week, with the emphasis being on shop time. So I have been getting my ducks in a row so I can have a somewhat productive week. Last week involved a little wood gathering (that deserves a whole ‘nother post…), I have my sharpening system and chisels arriving today, and I have been scouring books and mags to try to come up with some projects. Sinc...

My shop #3: Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools?

02-08-2015 03:34 PM by Dutchy | 10 comments »

Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools? It,s up to you. For the small machines I have thought making flipover stands, but on one stand I could put two, maybe three, machines on it. After thinking and trying I came to a solution and put five machines on a small bench. I can use all five without a lot of change. Overvieuw: Drawers for drills and so on: Drill table hanging on the left side: Drill press with mounted table: On the back a flexible drilling shaft and also p...

Why I like Vintage Tools #5: Grinders

10-19-2008 05:02 AM by brianinpa | 6 comments »

Every lumberjock has at least one – some might not consider it a woodworking tool, but I think if it is used for your woodworking hobby, then it is a woodworking tool. When I started my quest for vintage tools, I knew that I would be cleaning up some rusted metal. I was in a Big Lots store and saw a 6 inch grinder for $12.00 and thought: “It can’t be that bad.” So I bought it and realized quickly that my original thought could not have been further from the truth. It took a long time to...

Shop Improvements #6: Bench Grinder Toolrest

12-12-2011 11:00 PM by wolflrv | 5 comments »

Made this little grinder toolrest to sharpen my lathe tools. I’ll probably still build the wolverine type jig too, but needed this first. Also included in this post are a couple of shots of the set of lathe tools and draw knife, I got for $10 at a garage sale, as well as my new mini set. I know I’ll probably need other stuff, but figure this will get me started. Most of the lathe stuff I plan to do will be part of building more model cars and toys, so it’ll be mostly small p...

Tool thoughts #13: Wolvie Clone in progress

11-02-2008 03:16 AM by NedB | 5 comments »

With my shop mostly completed, I have turned towards getting my tools in order, including setting my grinder for sharpening my turning tools. I found this plan online and decided that it would be easy enough to build instead of shelling out $90 for the wolverine jig itself. I still have to mount the grinder to the platform at the proper height, as well as recut the v-block. The one there isn’t cut evenly, so I’m going to cut another piece on the tablesaw instead of the bands...

Work(shop) in Progress #17: Sharpening Station

10-28-2011 09:04 PM by PurpLev | 4 comments »

When I started working with bladed tools (chisels/planes/etc) I wanted a sharpening system that was on the cheap, small and storable and versatile. I chose to start with the scary sharp, and used sand papers from 100grit (rough shaping and cleaning nicked blades) to 2500 for final honing and green compound for touch ups. I added the Veritas MK-II honing guide and was using it for reshaping/resestting blades and honing them through the grits. While this method worked for the time I wanted s...

Prairie Tool Co. Model 85 Grinder Restoration #2: Elbow grease and regular grease, applied.

11-25-2012 05:34 AM by Woodknack | 4 comments »

After disassembling, cleaning, greasing, oiling and reassembling, I scraped and wire brushed the exterior then applied a coat of light coat of oil and wiped off the excess. She purrs like a kitten now. Better image of the unusual grease zerk. It can actually be seen now that I’ve removed about 1/16” of crud. Voila! This thing spins like a top, they sure knew how to make ‘em back in the day. It’ll outlast me. The original intent was to degrease...
