Sweet little MsDebbie (Hammer) blog

1271 days ago by mafe | 18 comments »

Sweet little MsDebbie – (Hammer)re-handle and then again… It sounds like an old classic ‘Sweet little MsDebbie’, and in a way it is. Few days ago I was having an off day, so as so often I looked at LJ and ended in the midst of an argument there, so I followed the old lesson to count to a million or so before you reply (some people can learn from this, I’m one). So off to the workshop, since I was not so fine I needed a small thing, something that could be done quick and cle...

Cheapskate Plane Adjusting Mallet

944 days ago by Brit | 14 comments »

So there I was killing some time on a wintery Sunday afternoon by surfing ebay when SWMBO said: ”Will you go to the supermarket to pick up a chicken and some fresh vegetables for dinner?” Reluctantly I agreed. Now I don’t know about you, but I hate supermarkets. Personally, when it comes to food shopping, I’m a quick in and out kind of guy. I know what I want and where it is. I fill my basket double quick time and heaven help anyone who gets in my way. So after ente...

Solar Kiln #1: Solar Kiln

1813 days ago by HalDougherty | 14 comments »

I’ve started on my new solar kiln. The plans are from Virginia Tech’s solar kiln project. I’m using the modified plans for a 2000 bft kiln. The framing is 2X4 white pine, floors are made from 1” white oak, the outside siding is 1” white pine with 1” poplar over the pine. After the insulation is installed the inside will be covered with plywood. The supports are made from log sections of black locust. I’ll have more photos when it’s f...

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #4: Chinese Hammers: the Common Unknown Tool

1670 days ago by chscholz | 12 comments »

Anybody who has studied Chinese woodworking will not doubt have come across prints like this one where a ancient Chinese woodworker is depicted pounding on a piece of furniture with what appears to be the blunt edge of an axe. For example the Lu Ban Jing, a woodworkers manual written around in the 15th century, shows a woodworker assembling a table by pounding on one of its legs with the blunt side of an axe. During much of China’s long and colorful history, China has been more or le...

Generations of Hammers

1398 days ago by swirt | 11 comments »

I am fortunate to have a hammer that belonged to my Grandfather and one that belonged to my Dad. Hammers generally are pretty generic items but there are a couple of aspects about each that I like and are not seen in todays’ assortment of hammers available at the hardware stores. My Grandfather’s hammer is one that fortunately I had long before Chris Schwarz dubbed it as his “favorite hammer” and made its price jump up. It is an old Belknap Blue Grass rip hammer a...

Reclaimed Glory #6: Breaking down a hardwood pallet - (Rubberwood?)

366 days ago by palaswood | 10 comments »

The other night I spied with my little wood-crazed eyes, a pallet with exceptional color and figure that is the same wood as I had salvaged from a disassembled dolly of sorts in topic: What species is this?? Wood Identification help Here is what i saw that piqued my interest: So I went shopping the following day on my lunch break to that big orange Home Center, and came away with some great tools for breaking down this pallet. (reviews forthcoming, they all performed awesomely) ...

Hammer A3 31 restoration series #2: Inspection of rust damage

1842 days ago by djwong | 8 comments »

The A3 31 is shipped on a wood platform attached to two steel bar channels. This in turn is bolted to a wood pallet. I elected to leave the unit on the platform and pallet for now. I’ll have to figure out how to get it down at a later date.There were bits of disintegrated plastic all over the interior of the box, along with lots of dead bugs and spiders. The rust damage is fairly extensive on the jointer beds. The far end of the bed is where the person selling the unit tr...

Hammer A3 31 restoration series #3: Beginning rust removal

1840 days ago by djwong | 8 comments »

I decided to begin work on removing the rust on a small section of the outfeed table. The surface of the jointer beds are made up of machined “ridges”. I first tried multiple applications of Boeshield Rust-Off. Even though the garage door was open, the fumes were terrible. (I added a fan blowing across the table and that greatly improved things.) I first rubbed off the surface rust with a blue scotch-brite pad. I then sprayed on the Rust-Off, wait 1 minute, then abraded with...

Small Brass Hammers #1: The Prototype

482 days ago by Luke | 8 comments »

I’ve decided to try out this video thing. This is my first and it is very basic. It just shows my intent with making these small brass hammers. These will be used for adjusting plane blades mainly. I may add a wood side on one end at a later date. Hope this comes out okay cause I plan to do many more. Thanks for watching. http://youtu.be/Q8mmU9ZFbPc
