Hi, my name is John and I am a Tool Junkie #1: Grizzly Tent Sale - Muncy PA - Sept 13, 2008

2166 days ago by John | 9 comments »

Where can you buy 1000 (full size) sheets of (nice, waterproof) sandpaper for $1.00? Those were the first things to go; I managed to grab 2 boxes in the frenzy, one box of 150 grit, one of 280… Need a sheet? let me know! At 8:00 Saturday morning, Grizzly Industrial’s annual tent sale in Muncy PA opened their doors. I thought I would check this thing out, and actually got there 15 minutes early thinking I would take a look around before the crowds showed up at 10:00 or so…...

A Roman Plane - my 21st century re-creation #1: Preparing some steelwork

2265 days ago by YorkshireStewart | 14 comments »

It must be about four years since I first had a vague idea of reproducing this Roman plane from around the second century AD. The original has an ivory infill body, and is remarkably complete. I gained permission from the curator of the Guildhall Museum in Beverley, East Yorkshire, England, to take some measurements and photographs when the plane was removed from its environmentally controlled cabinet for its periodic inspection. This blog is where I originally touched on the subject, an...

The clients and I had talked about changing the lights to better illuminate the fine work that I have produced. While the metal work is being done I decided to go ahead and install the new lights. WOW! Man-OH-Man! Does it ever look fantastic! Here is the closet with the old lights: Here is the closet with the n...

Woodworking Knowledge #3: Etching Brasswork from Using Photocopies of Anything!

2309 days ago by flink | 2 comments »

Hi There! I for one, really like the way brass looks with a rich background of mahogany or dark oak. I also love engraved brasswork. This morning as I drank my morning six-pack of diet coke, I was checking my regulars and came across a link to a person who does steampunk stuff and had a procedure to do brass etchings of anything you can photocopy. It’s relatively simple, and can be done with materials you can get at the borgs. Below is the photocopy “negative” (le...

Crappy tool improvement: router lock lever

720 days ago by Sodabowski | 8 comments »

Cheap 20€ router from big box store: Plus plastic lock lever: Equals a lot of frustration. This thing wears out so quick that it started playing me tricks after the first 10 uses or so. Having two of these, one here and one at the parents’, I took benefit of spending my holidays at their place to quickly mill two replacement levers, out of steel bar. I brought one home and finished it this afternoon: I like the fact that these entry level routers have a prett...
