Saw Talk #8: File Holder for Jointing Saws and Scrapers

03-10-2012 11:30 AM by Brit | 63 comments »

Before I can sharpen my backsaws, I need to make two things: a file holder for jointing the teeth and a saw vise. I was going to post both of these items together, but I think the file holder deserves its own post. A file holder is also useful for jointing hand scrapers. Some people don’t bother with a file holder and just hold the file with their hands, but it’s easier to keep the file perpendicular to the teeth using a holder with a fence that rides against the side of the plate. I’ve seen ...

Cutting Boards #2: Jointers and Handplanes!

03-08-2012 03:25 AM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

Started the milling process on the cherry boards tonight. The biggest problem in my shop right now is that it is in the basement of the townhouse I rent. Living room is right up stairs and the noise / smell really carries. So I used my jointer to quickly flatten one face then I cleaned them up with my new handplanes which I tuned up this past weekend. This comming weekend I am really hoping get get enough time to finish the milling process on all the boards and begin ripping them down to t...

Tools, Toys, and Accessories #2: Old Arn - Craftsman 103.20620 6" Jointer

03-06-2012 03:12 AM by HerbC | 7 comments »

I check the local craigslist tool section on a regular basis. One of the tools I’ve been looking for is a jointer. My requirements were that it be at least 6” wide cutter/bed, that it run, and that it cost $150 max. Several jointers have shown up over the last year but either didn’t meet one of my requirements or was gone by the time I saw the listing and called. Last Saturday the weather was a bit on the miserable side here, with quite a bit of wind and brief spells o...

After seeing a number of setups and procedures on the web that are used to set jointer knives. I thought that the best methods were the one that used a dial indicator. I designed a setup using two precision 1-2-3 blocks and two dial indictors. These precision 1-2-3 blocks are ground and cases hardened and are used in precision machine setup and precision measurements. The blocks are 1” by 2” by 3”. They are parallel within 0.0002”, flat within 0.0002” and square ...

Over the weekend I got my jointer which used to be my grandpa’s out of storage, it’s a 1978 Craftsman. It has some light surface rust and I am sure the blades could use sharpened. I am looking forward to having it ready to use.

Like most of you out there, I think my mother is the most amazing woman on the planet, and I wanted to find a way to express that to her. My mom’s birthday is on January 2nd, I feel very bad that she always seems to get short changed on the birthday celebration because everyone is tired from Xmas and New Years. I wanted to give her a very personal present this year to show how important she is too me. I was considering a jewelery box and when I saw this project in FWW, I decided ...

Small Bathroom Shelf w/ Reclaimed wood

02-15-2012 03:54 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

Recently built this small bathroom storage shelf. The wood was some laminated pine boards that were used for a bookcase that fell apart, the person gave me the boards for free and I used them for this shelf. Very simple construction that relied on screws because I did not have the time to use traditional joinery. The finish was Minwax Helsmans satin. The dimensions were 36” tall, 15” wide and 7” deep.
