Maple/oak project/desk #6: Lid restart,meeting angles...didn't

07-04-2015 04:44 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Another one of “them” days in the shop. Clamps getting flying lessons, because they just kept falling to the floor when I tried to use them. Got the lid angle done ( almost) with an old handplane I had refurbbed up A Stanley No.28. Seemed to be a little lighter than my Stanley #6c…..Left index finger served as a “fence” to keep things going. Tried to match things up with the non-moving part of the lid….even tried hinges, to se what was going on&...

Re-furbish a Stanley No. 28

06-30-2015 10:20 PM by bandit571 | 8 comments »

Ok, picked two of these long planes for a five spot at a local auction And got them to the Rehab Center when I got home. First thing was to tear them down to a pile of parts. Screws and bolts were wire brushed on the drill press. Brass was shined up as well. Irons were cleaned up, and sharpened, chipbreakers were cleaned up and tuned to match the irons. Which left the wood bodieds to deal with. Set each up in the leg vise on the bench. A No.14 Jack plane to not only clea...

Maple/oak project/desk #3: Dovetails, rebates, and grooviness, oh my...

06-29-2015 08:13 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, maybe today will go a bit better than the last one? Had an Auction to go to Saturday, and refurbbed a couple items I picked up at it. Bench is cleared off, time to do a few dovetails? When last seen, i had these sawn. I picked up a candle the other day, waxed the saw blade, and made a couple more cuts. Then the chisels took over. That chisel came from the set I picked up at Aldis. It is about 5/16-3/8” wide. I’m banging through curly Maple with this chisel....

Maple/oak project/desk #1: Part 1, needed to mill a few boards

06-24-2015 09:56 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Came home with a nice stack of fancy hardwood planks. Thanks to the people that got them for me. Let them sit around in the Dungeon Shop for awhile, until I got tired of not being able to use my bench. Starting to cut down a candidate for a slant top….whatever.Was a bit curly grain, and a few knots. Worked it flatter with a small jointer/fore plane That big old No. 6c was a bit too long, so a Millers Falls Junior Jack took over. was having a bit of trouble with the grain ...

building a bench and stuff #5: The home stretch

06-12-2015 05:25 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

Warning: pic heavy Just posting a bunch of progress. Leg vise continued. Cutting the bridal joint. Lignum vitae pin for the guide. This stuff strong. Trying to incorporate this as a pin holder but haven’t come across an idea that I can pull off with what I have on hand. So it’s on the back burner for now. Hammered a poplar dowel and drilled a center so I could bore it with a forstner. Didn’t work out so well. Stuck a roll pin...

Revonoc 28" Restoration

06-07-2015 07:51 PM by Mambrax | 3 comments »

Over view of a Revonoc 28” Restoration. Got it a rummage sale for $20. probably paid to much, but i never saw a other one like that before.So step 1 : removing all part. Be-ward of dead bugs !!! As seen it was in rough shape. Most all those get wrap all possible way, which make them unusable. It’s very important to square them out before any think. Now a plane that size is almost impossible to sand for the normal man like me. The only way is that I personally can u...
