How to dimension lumber with handtools #1: Tools

09-10-2018 01:38 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

I started a new video series tonight on how to dimension lumber using only hand tools. I am currently woking on building a treadle lathe and have been busy dimensioning all the components for the project. The tools I am currently using are the Stanley Sweetheart #4, Stanley #62 low angle jack plane, Stanley Bailey #7, A square, Stanley marking knife, Wood river marking gauge and 3 foot long measuring stick. It is a little slow but a good work-out. My shaving pile his about a foot tall now. ...

Disston saw restoration #1: Great find on Ebay

04-04-2018 07:43 PM by Oldtool | 8 comments »

About 2 weeks ago I was viewing hand saws on Ebay, looking for something to cut the cheeks on tenons, as I have two Disston saws – one 14” and one 16”, and a 12” Jackson (made by Disston) all filed for cross cut. I came across this Disston, as is and not touched by the seller: After receiving it, I decided to clean it up and change the teeth from cross cut to rip, but otherwise it was in good shape – straight, great tote condition without any damage, j...

Hand tool workbench build #3: First lamination

03-28-2018 06:13 AM by SauceMan | 4 comments »

I’ll keep this one brief, but I am pretty psyched—today / two days ago mark a big milestone in my build. I finally laminated some wood together. What felt like lots of crosscutting and ripping with my hand tools (and planing) finally led to this. Here you can see six layers of 8/4 hard maple laminated together. That makes about half of the workbench top for my split-top roubo style workbench. You’ll see there’s still more hand planing to do, but I plan on doing ...

A Historically Interesting Handsaw

02-16-2018 01:01 AM by summerfi | 13 comments »

A Historically Interesting Handsaw I usually don’t give Warranted Superior saws a second look. It’s not that many of them aren’t good saws, but because their value is comparatively lower than vintage name brand saws. When this saw recently popped up on an online auction, though, I couldn’t pass it by. It’s not every day that you see a saw from Montana, much less one with an etch that includes the name of my home town, Missoula. HistoryThis saw was sold in the Kalispell branch store of Misso...

Working around the house #1: Restoring Old Hand Tools

05-04-2017 12:26 PM by ofthemound | 4 comments »

Hello again! So this is where I am at in my journey of woodworking. Over the winter I decided to invest in older, high quality hand tools. Now I have a nice set of hand tools to work with. I always heard the common phrase, ”They don’t make them like they use to!” I never really thought much of it till I was holding two Stanley Bailey hand planes, the oldest being 100+ years old. Still solid to my amazement! I spent time to restore my jack and fore hand planes and now I have ...

Hand Tool Cabinet - Start To Finish #9: more saw clean up

02-15-2016 02:51 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

I can not tell the name brand of this saw I am working on. It does not have a disston name on it anywhere. Maybe a Vermont American or something. But here is before & after pix of electrolysis and ROS with WD40. In the middle of my saw vice but had to call it quits for the day. Should finish the saw vice tomorrow.

Hand Tool Cabinet - Start To Finish #8: working on the hand saws

02-14-2016 05:43 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

I am hoping to REALLY start my hand tool cabinet as my next project. Before I do, I have work to be done. First up, refurbishing tools that will be used to make the tool cabinet. I’ll try to use the hand tools as a primary. Saying that, hand saws will be used. Here is my current collection I have acquired: ———————-The 3 Veritas saws (dovetail, tenons) are good to go. The Stanley, Disston, and Japanese saws need help.Lots of rust on the ...
