Grand Pa's Tools #1: In Over My Head? Most Likely.

07-28-2013 02:26 AM by Ed_Wilcox | 1 comment »

So, I managed to grab a Stanley #604 hand plane, a bit and brace, a chest hand drill, and a mini-anvil from my grand father’s shed. He passed away several years ago from Alzheimer’s so it is a special gift to have a couple of his tools. The Stanley was covered in rust, but not as bad as I thought. I wish I had taken a before picture, but if you look at the other tools, you may have an idea of the condition the hand plane was in. I was able to remove the rust quite easi...

My Summer Vacation at Marc Adams' School #1: I'm Heading Out For Indiana Tomorrow!

07-27-2013 08:35 AM by Tim Roman | 2 comments »

I’ll be hopping in the car and driving out to beautiful Franklin, Indiana tomorrow (Sunday) morning to attend two classes next week at Marc Adams’ School of Woodworking. First, I am in a 6-day long project class in which I will be building an arts-and-crafts style entry table. Then I will take a one-day class on tool sharpening skills. Both classes will be taught by Mike Pekovich of Fine Woodworking Magazine. I’m excited about the opportunity to add to my skills and make...

Restoring a Number 7 Bailey Jointer Plane #2: Disassembly and electrolysis

07-25-2013 06:51 PM by MrFid | 7 comments »

So after a quick spritz with some PB (one of my personal favorites), the plane came right apart. My wife’s only complaint with PB is the smell, so I do it outside rather than in the basement. On the downside, I don’t hallucinate anymore from the fumes. Here are some pictures of individual pieces: You’ll note that the newspaper underneath is a high school newspaper. It’s because I am a high school teacher, and I don’t subscribe to any lo...

Restoring a Number 7 Bailey Jointer Plane #1: Patient Intake

07-24-2013 08:49 PM by MrFid | 8 comments »

First blog entry on LJs. I have restored two other planes before this one (both Bailey No. 5s… one for use as a jack, one for use as a scrub), but this one will definitely be the best documented. Here goes. FYI I am done with this restoration and will be adding entries in chronological order as time permits. Truthfully, I’ll try to sneak in an entry between entertaining my 7-month-old. While browsing the Craiger, I came across a sale for a bunch of stuff (none of which I ne...

Ridiculous Tool Gloat

07-21-2013 09:08 PM by Deycart | 6 comments »

Last month I was chatting with a guy who ran a used tool shop near me and the conversation drifted to talking about planes. He lamented the fact that he had trouble selling the planes he purchased and I gave him a quick lesson on how to figure the value of an average plane and separate the good ones from the junk. In exchange for my lesson he told me about a guy who was selling his collection of tools up the street. This is what I came home with for about 280. Stanley No 2, No 5 SW, No 23,...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #10: No progress but I found out about hull #500

07-21-2013 06:06 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

The closest I’ve come to working on 816 is walking through the shop on the way to work. I did have a surprise the day after I registered my PDR in that the other Manitoban who has a PDR emailed me and introduced himself. Turns out we are only about an hour away from each other. Serendipitiously he was to do an interview that same day with a local radio station to try and stir up some interest in wooden boats. Apparently his hull (#500) is still serviceable and it sounds like he real...

Workbench Build #30: Wagon Vise Build is a Go Finally..

07-19-2013 08:40 AM by Airframer | 10 comments »

This has been a relatively slow week build wise. I had a series of 15 hour nights at work which kept me out of the shop for most of it. I did, however, find a few minutes here and there to get some work done on the wagon vise for the bench. I need to knock this out so I can finish up the endcaps and get started on the leg vise and stretchers then finally assemble the darn thing. I am fashioning this after the benchcrafted wagon vise which is a departure from my original plan of the Ma...

Tool chest update #5: 1 of 3 almost complete

07-19-2013 01:55 AM by Dan Krager | 13 comments »

The first of three chests is almost complete. I can’t afford to put doors on it yet, so I plan to use it as is. There are five more planes to house, and trunk corners to put on (still looking for them…they’re a little special because the three corner ones don’t work on an open front). I’ve settled on magnets to secure the planes below, the upper ones need more, so cleats look promising.Thanks for your interest.DanK

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #7: I am 3 dimensional!

07-17-2013 01:56 AM by Mark Shymanski | 8 comments »

Its been a pretty productive couple of days, I left off having installed the chine logs on the port side. I now have the starboard side done the bow and transom pieces cut and their chine logs installed except for a goof up I’ll reveal in a bit things have been going pretty good. Last night I left it like this… It now looks a lot more boat like and it actually looks much roomier than my kayak so I am pretty pumped. I then flipped it over to look like this…. ...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #6: Progress - pictures pending.

Made some pretty good progress in the shop after I got home this evening. When I have a better network connection I will fill in more details.
