A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

85 days ago by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...

Hand Tool Journey #32: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #6..Metal Fabbin it Up in Here..

86 days ago by Airframer | 8 comments »

So yesterday we left off with a clean and reassembled mitre box with a few missing accompaniments. I was also left with a broken drill press (piss.. damn you HF!!!!!!).. Anyhoo.. the drill press saga will come into play in a bit but first I needed to draw up some plans for the missing tree from a photo provided by a fellow LJ. I blew it up on my computer screen till it was scale to my ruler and started mapping it out on some graph paper ending up with this.. Now…. I he...

Hand Tool Journey #28: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #2.. Tear Down..

94 days ago by Airframer | 7 comments »

Late last night while waiting for Game of Thrones to come on (don’t judge me!) I spend a couple hours taking this apart and separating all the parts in labeled bags. The 2 up rights were frozen in their bases and this is where everything went horribly wrong when I was taking apart my 358 so I wanted to be careful not to snap off the threaded end. Off to WallyWorld I went and returned with some Marvel Mystery Oil. Cut it 50/50 with some mineral spirits in a spray bottle, sp...

Chess board with outlined squares

94 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, Joe asked me to create a little Blog about how I created my chess board. I’m happy to do so. I’ll just remind everyone that when you are seated at the board, the corner square to your right is white. I’ll edit this post this week to add illustrations. Truth being told, the cutting board and box makers are far better at this than I. This design is just a basic cutting board without using end grain. I didn’t allow for expansion so the whole thing may just explode on me one day. Us...

Hand Tool Journey #27: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #1.. What have we got here?

94 days ago by Airframer | 5 comments »

Just received a Sweetheart era #246 Miter Box. It is in decent working order but really needs a good cleaning to get everything moving like it should again. My original plan was to clean and be done with it but… like usual I can’t just leave well enough alone. Here is the state it arrived in.. Complete with the trip mechanism! Saw is in great shape with no obvious signs of pitting.. only the tote needs help. It also arrived with one of the 2 stop ...

Contractor Clipboard, Why didn't you think of this!

101 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 4 comments »

If you use a clipboard on the job, you know how difficult it is to find a place to put it down while you handle the tape measure or tools you’re using. There’s never a good place to put it except to tuck it under your arm where it often gets dropped. Solve that problem by building a clipboard with a spring clamp on the back and you’ll never look for a spot to put it down again. Here's a YouTube video which shows more details.
