Sharpening Jig

01-28-2016 04:03 PM by yuridichesky | 11 comments »

After I completed my recent project – mini plane – I realized that the iron of this little plane was too small to sharpen it comfortably. I sharpen my edges free-hand, and this iron is just too small to hold it while sharpening. So I came up with this simple solution: some kind of iron holder made from mild construction steel. Now it’s pretty easy to do the job: When it was done I remembered how Paul Sellers made his simple jig for sharpening spokeshaves ir...

Quick Tip: Measure diameter of a circle

01-23-2016 04:45 AM by bigfoot11 | 4 comments »

I’m in the process of making a small dust separator to work with my CNC and needed to make very tight fitting lid for a 5 gallon bucket. After fiddling for a few minutes and getting ten different measurements, it donned on me to take advantage of a flat table and some squares. It’s so stupid simple, I can’t believe I’ve never seen it done this way before. http://www.gowoodwork.com/2016/measure-diameter-circle/

Videos by HuckD #17: Dowel Jigs 1 and 2

01-14-2016 06:37 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

I’ve made a couple of dowel jigs to use on a table and bench project that I’m making from 2×12 Southern Yellow Pine. One is useful for joining two pieces of 2 by # lumber and the other is for 4×4 lumber. They’re very inexpensive as they are made from a scrap piece of 1” oak and some “steel spacers” from Lowes. Both have proven to be accurate and easy to use. https://youtu.be/lZRZTXYKiJE

Videos by HuckD #16: Edge Guide for the Kreg Mini Pocket Hole Jig

01-05-2016 03:38 AM by HuckD | 0 comments »

DIY solution to using the mini Kreg pocket hole jig on 1.5” thick lumber. It’s simple and easy to build. It’s made from shop cutoffs and a little common hardware. It even makes the mini jig easier to use on 3/4 stock. Sometimes the simple things work well. https://youtu.be/mr1jDFCXHt8

WS3000 jig for router plane blades.

12-21-2015 10:49 PM by Trakem2 | 2 comments »

Trying to sharpen my router plane blades by hand was taking way too long and kind of frustrating. So I came up with a jig to hold the blades on my Worksharp. Trying to hold them free hand wasn’t working so well, they would catch and I would end up with multiple facets and an edge that wasn’t straight. So I came up with a simple jig to hold the blades at the proper angle (about 35 degrees). Its simply a small block of wood with a v-groove down the middle to hold the blade, and is g...

Skew jig for WS3000

12-11-2015 06:03 PM by Trakem2 | 1 comment »

Here are some pics of the skew sharpening jig that I made for my WS3000 to sharpen the blade for my Stanley #289 plane. The block is approximately 3” x 2” x 10”. The bed angle is 30 degrees and the skew angle is 22 degrees. The block is clamped to the work surface and the blade is placed in the jig and then is slid down to the grinding wheel. I got this idea from Chris Schwarzs blog at Popular Woodworking on how to correct the skew for a plane blade or chisel. ...
