The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #20: Stumpy's "Accidental Invention" just might CHANGE THE WORLD!

05-01-2012 12:43 AM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

I just wanted to build a jig to cut raised panels, I never imagined I would be turning the woodworking world on it’s ear! The jig we built last episode has gotten out of control! Now it does everything from cutting miters to trimming my toenails, and I am considering adding an adapter to open my cold ones! You’ll get to see the new invention run amuck, plus I demonstrate how to survive without a jointer and still flatten wood like a man. Then I tell you why my neighbor thinks I...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #9: Some Assembly Required

04-30-2012 01:49 AM by GlennsGrandson | 4 comments »

Got a decent amount done this weekend on the old 1969 Rockwell/Delta 37-220 Jointer. Started assembling and leveling the top. Getting the head cleaned up. Waxed the beds and fence with Johnsons Paste Wax. Wire wheeled the inside of the base and a couple of other small parts that were hiding under a HF ad. Primed them, painted them. Now Maybe another quick coat of paint tomorrow before I go to work and we can finally start assembling. I am having a professional sharpen my knives for me for ...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #8: When Disaster Strikes...We improvise.

04-28-2012 05:09 PM by GlennsGrandson | 5 comments »

Wow, what an afternoon yesterday. I’m finally getting to see things shape up when I was removing the masking tape. Then I get to the tape that was covering the PATENT sticker that I couldn’t remove… I’d had the masking tape on too long and when I was removing the tape, along came the sticker… So naturally I was upset…very upset. It’s not like this little sticker would at all affect how my machine works but.. My Grandpa has two main hobbies, woo...

Green and Greene Style Clock #1: Opertation Mill Stock a Success! Well, Sorta

04-28-2012 06:30 AM by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

So I decided to build a Greene and Greene Style Clock after visiting the Gamble house in Pasadena earlier this month. To do this though, I was going to have to locate material for the project and the plans called for a lot of varying thicknesses of material like 1/4”, 1/2”, 5/8” 3/4” and so on. I could purchase the pre milled wood that any Rockler or Woodcraft carries but this would mean using material from different trees most likely and trying to get the grain and co...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #7: Polishing Cast Iron beds?

04-27-2012 12:41 PM by GlennsGrandson | 2 comments »

Any good ideas on how to polish my open cast iron bed and fences? I’ve cleaned them up real nice but I really want them to shine before I coat them in wax or whatever route I go. Do I use fine grit sand paper, wet, dry? buffing wheel? Any input is appreciated. Thanks much!

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #6: Tedious Tape-up... and jigs? Bed/Fence protection??

04-25-2012 08:05 PM by GlennsGrandson | 4 comments »

Hello again, I’ve got quite a bit accomplished since my last post, but it took much longer than anticipated. I had to finish cleaning a few little pieces here and there and wipe off the never ending paint dust with mineral spirits. Once I’d clean a piece I’d tape it off, lots of masking tape and razor blades. The only pieces I have left are the pieces of the head. I have to clean up the head yet and probably replace the bearings, they felt good and sounded good but they prob...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #5: Been busy working, where I get paid.

04-20-2012 01:03 PM by GlennsGrandson | 4 comments »

Haven’t done a whole lot lately, finished all the wire brushing and removing of the old pant and rust. I had to stop using the wire wheel when there was more wires flying off then paint. I got my use out of the $3 wire wheel. There‚Äôs still some paint in those hard to reach places but It’s better than it was. Now I’m going to give everything a good wiping with some mineral spirits and tape off what’s necessary and go to town with the spray cans. I took some pictur...

Hand Planes #1: Big beast came in the mail today.

04-16-2012 04:29 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 14 comments »

Well today I received my big plane. It is 26” long by 3” wide. It is HUGE. Stamped New York Tool Co on the plane and the iron is Auburn Tool Co. It has some wear and tear. The handle needs to be replaced, but the bottom is flat and no major cracks. I’m just getting into the wooden hand planes. Could someone tell me type of wood should be used for the handle?

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #4: Edward Wire hands

04-15-2012 11:31 PM by GlennsGrandson | 5 comments »

Spent about four hours in the garage today with a wire brush, wire attachment on my drill, and a 4” wire wheel on my Makita. Doesn’t look like much to show for all that work but getting that paint off of cast iron and in all the little corners and grooves is tedious work. I think with another 1 1/2 hours of wire brushing I’ll be ready to wipe it clean and tape off the appropriate areas. I’m getting a lot of hours into this thing but I think I’ll only have abou...
