refurbishing old tools #9: Work on the till and a tote catastrophe

03-18-2011 03:19 AM by Dave | 23 comments »

First and foremost. This Saturday at our Agriculture Museum there will be a meeting of the Pearl River Woodcarvers guild. I do believe 4 lj’s will be there showing support. That in itself will be fun. And I might even find an old gouge or two. ;)Another cool thing I had a fellow LJ, William, stoped buy this week. He brought me an old #5 fluted craftsman plane. That wiil make another great refurb and user.Now the plane till is coming together. Dry fit went alone fairly well. So I w...

Radial Arm Saw Refurb #1: Tool Gloat

09-17-2010 06:22 PM by HokieMojo | 21 comments »

Well, here is the other big tool purchase I made recently (spray can for scale). closer shot: This saw was posted on ebay, but there appeared to be some inaccurate information on it (model number never existed, blade size was incorrect, serial number was never produced, etc). I wasn’t able to get answers to my questions before bidding closed, so I passed on it. Apparently everyone else did too. I suspect it was a combination of a confusing description, making a big purchase w...

Restoring my old Dunlap #4 bench plane

11-09-2011 05:59 AM by NateX | 20 comments »

I finally took my great grandfathers #4 Dunlap bench plane out back and cleaned it up this afternoon. The original forum post is here First I made sure that I had everything ready and all the protective stuff I would need to safely work with phosphoric acid. I soaked the small parts in a tupper ware and scrubbed stuff in my oil change catch pan. Gotta love a multi-tasker! And of course some tunes on the iPhone. The Krud Kutter Rust Buster really worked quickly, the rust was pretty easy...

Inlay card table refurbish #1: First, get some advice

10-26-2015 05:27 AM by peterrum | 10 comments »

A neighbor of mine gave me this table as he is not a woodworker and felt he did not have the skills to refurbish it. So now I have another project. The table has no commercial markings on it so I feel that it was home made some years ago, maybe 50 years ago but I have nothing to base my estimate on. At any rate the table looked interesting enough that I will make an attempt at fixing it up but I am looking for a lot of advice and suggestions from anyone. My first ste...

Dining Room Set Refurbish #1: What style am I?

10-30-2010 04:59 PM by mtkate | 9 comments »

To make a long story short, a dining room set that has been in our family since the early 70’s has come under my care. It’s all white oak and we know it’s at least 100 years old (but probably not more). Believed to have been made in New Brunswick. If the set was made around 1900 or so, what would you call the style …. Victorian Revival? One of the chairs is below. The upholstering is real leather. The original finish was the darkest mahogany color you see left ...

Jet cabinet saw re-hab #1: a new cener piece for the shop..... needs a little TLC

06-29-2012 03:39 AM by Mainiac Matt | 8 comments »

I posted about my good fortune scoring this early 80’s Jet CTAS10 with Biesemeyer fence and 50” table…. Here she is…. just needs a little TLC I hit the top with course steel wool to get the flakey red rust off upon taking things apart I have these observations… The Biesemeyer fence is really rugged…. tube is straight as and arrow, even after some rough handling, and the ‘L’ brackets are really rugged… must ...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...
