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

101 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

101 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?

101 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!

108 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.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #63: I QUIT

110 days ago by jerrells | 13 comments »

After many months of thinking on the decision, looking at different ways to do this, having as much input as could be offered, considering all of life’s alternatives, I have decided to give up, quit, stop scroll sawing as a hobby, part time activity, part time business or for the most part anything else. Yes, perhaps I will make one or two items per years that I personally choose to give away as presents BUT nothing more. Many factors have gone into the decision – here are but a few. 1....

My New Shed

111 days ago by chuckv00 | 1 comment »

We were looking for a garden shed for our tools and gardening stuff. We have a big backyard so we wanted a 10’ x 10’.The instructions were easy to understand and it took us about 6 hrs to put up from the time we opened the box. We had a bit of trouble putting on the last part of the roof, but all it took was a quick email and they got back to us quickly.We have since had several people comment on our ‘good looking’ shed and are surprised how inexpensive it was. Happy t...

The Rebuild #7: Progress sort of

118 days ago by Monte Pittman | 19 comments »

I am about 80% functional in my attached garage. I would like to salute all of you that work in smaller shops. I know many of you think that 20×20 is not a small shop. I assure you it is if you build bigger items and were used to over 4 times that much space. I have much more organizing to do, but I feel very cramped. I am used to having several stacks of different lumber available in the shop at all times. Oh well, it sounds too much like whining now. I have nearly completed the firs...
