POWRKRAFT Hand Plane Cleaned Up and Ready To Use

11-01-2012 05:15 AM by nobuckle | 6 comments »

Here is the POWRKRAFT hand plane all cleaned up and ready to use. I plan on using this plane as a scrub plane. I think it’ll work out just fine. You may need to turn up your volume, the voice recording is somewhat low. Thanks for your time.

Adventures in Japanning #7: That's a wrap! (for now)

10-28-2012 05:42 PM by JayT | 14 comments »

Having tested, erred, retested, erred again and so on, I was finally happy with how the homemade japanning came out, so did several restores. We’ll try and do a summary of everything learned here in one blog post. Supplies needed:Asphaltum—available in powder form or liquid, which is what I used. Art supply stores seem to be the best source, as it is used in acid etching.Solvent—Xylol or turpentine should either work fine. Both are capable of suspending the heavy...

Two very different planes. A Shelton Block plane Just a little on the rusty side. Another look? Being steel instead of cast iron, yep, it do get a bit orange. The second plane is a little bit bigger, though.. Looks like a new knob will have to be turned. A nice RED frog.. Seems to be alright. Big silver adjuster wheel. Chrome everywhere. Blue paint around the Craftsman logo. Looks like i will have some fun with this clean up. Got out the tools, the bel...

Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

10-19-2012 10:57 PM by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

Tote Repair, Fix The Crack #4: Where's The Crack?

10-19-2012 12:39 AM by hhhopks | 1 comment »

Finally, I got the finish completed on the tote. Well, I am calling it done. Finishing is just not my thing. So here it is. The picture below shows the repaired tote on my 604 plane which I have also restored. The objective of this blog is on the repair of the tote in a way where the repair is not obvious. No cheating here. It is the same tote (check pictures of the previous blogs). I didn’t resort to out of focus pictures. You be the judge. Below are close up pictures of the r...

Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

10-18-2012 02:11 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...

Pipe Stand #2: Calm Before The Storm

10-17-2012 09:27 PM by Operaman | 7 comments »

Well, time has slipped away and it has been too long since my last blog post. In the interim, thankfully, work has been keeping me hopping and have gotten small projects out of the shop. Also the bandsaw and I had a disagreement and the bandsaw won the day. Thankfully no major damage was done and in a few more weeks I’ll be as right as rain. I have finally finished the poplar mockup and tommorrow the “real thing” begins in earnest. I made all of the changes that I not...

Evolution of my router planer #8: Tweakin' it again. Version 2.1

10-15-2012 11:56 PM by TZH | 11 comments »

Didn’t know whether to post here in this blog or in the walnut tv stand blog. So here it is. Found I had to tweak my router planer a bit more in order for it to work as well as I wanted it to work. The slabs I’m doing right now were too long for the regular planer, so had to get out the really long rails once again. Problem with the setup I had already used was the sled didn’t ride the rails as nice or as easy as I’d hoped they would, even with using some wheels/cas...
