Rust-hunting serendipity—A year of searching turns up “Precious” parts

103 days ago by Brad | 8 comments »

About a year ago, I “restored a Goodell Manufacturing Co. miterbox”: http://lumberjocks.com/planepassion/blog/34755 . It was lacking both of its accessories when I originally bought it. A slide post to facilitate crown moulding cuts, and a length gauge slide. It was also missing a slide retention clip and a thumbscrew. That nagged at me. So much so that I made a clip and bought a jig thumbscrew to secure it. I also started making wooden prototypes of the slides. That ...

Fastner & Small Parts Storage

1146 days ago by Woodwrecker | 13 comments »

Hi everyone. I was trying to figure out a way to store some of my fasteners and small parts which lead me to construct this. Take some Dollar Store baking pans, some scrap wood, and a little routing, sanding & painting and problem solved. I then use my label maker to identify what is in each pan. I’m still sorting things out, but so far it’s worked great. You can take the one you need to your work area and bring it back when you’re done. I don’t think it&#...

Machinist Toolbox #3: Carcass parts ready for some groovin'

1320 days ago by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, wasn’t too cold, and the sky was blue (today is cloudy and rainy). I was fortunate enough to be able to use the day for some woodworking. I am at the point where I usually run into trouble. I have a tendency to want to work on the joinery and the problem is that I usually do that before I have all the parts ready leaving me with some parts that go together, but still require work to get the rest of it as well. This time around I decided to get all ...

Trestle Table Desks #3: Fixing a flub and stacking parts

1350 days ago by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

The dado for the juniper panels (see the image of the parts) is quite wide. I used a 1” straight router bit in the saw table. I was inattentive on one and let it get by about 3/4”. Though the error would likely never be seen, I decided to plug it. In the image you’ll see the plug glued in and the scrap from which it was taken. The second one shows the result of putting a little glue in the voids and sanding with a RO machine and 150x. All the parts are now machined f...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #24: Mobile Parts Cart

1614 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

During the construction of a project there is often a need for organizing and storing parts. This is obvously a temporary need because as the work progresses, you construct parts and then assemble them. I like to use a 4’ scaffold as a mobile cart to store and organize the parts that I have made. I bought my scaffold for $99 although I have noticed that the price has risen on them over the last couple of years. It comes with steel platform shelves to stand on and I used plywoo...

Gatorade bottles

1694 days ago by PASs | 5 comments »

I used to do the baby food and mayo jars with the lids nailed under the shelf thing.But after I joined the Navy I had to go more mobile.I started putting my screws and nails into Gatorade bottles.The nice thing is I can put a piece of bailing wire around the neck with a loop on it and hang it on a pegboard.Since the bottle is clear I can see at a glance what’s in it.Right now I don’t have a pegboard wall, but the filing cabinets (another blog entry) work pretty good for keeping th...

Chi Omega Dorm Room #4: Cutting, Cutting, And More Cutting

1868 days ago by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Started cutting out the parts to the 9 additional single beds only and WOW that is a lot of cutting. I figured 522 pieces (58 each). The drawer have the most at 423 (47 each). I didn’t just cut and rip them, some had to be edge banded and then comes the sanded. I got 2 days to work. I will be going to Church camp for a week. I’d like to have the headboards built and the drawer units ready to assemble before I leave. The week I’m gone, hopefully my crew can get the d...

Stevens 311 restoration #2: Resource gathering

2297 days ago by plaidflannelman | 1 comment »

I will be writing this in sort of walkthrough form; so I will include my resources as they come. I am getting parts from Numrich Arms and the direct page for this gun is here. They have a passable exploded diagram on that page but the one I use comes out of the Gun Digest diagrams book. Same diagram for the most part, though. I have basic tools for the project but when working with firearms, fine or otherwise, I would recommend a good set of gunsmith screwdrivers and punches. These and a...

Parts For Tools

2425 days ago by Blake | 2 comments »

I just wanted to let everyone know, in case they don’t already. At our Used Tool Store we sometimes need to make repairs on tools in order to resell them. When we need parts we go to Tool Parts Direct (toolpartsdirect.com) This is the best way that we have found to get parts for tools. If you go to the website and type in the brand and model number you will get a blown-apart schematic of almost any tool ever made. (Click on the schematic for a full sized view). There is also a parts...
