Hoosier Cabinet Refurbish #1: Getting started

02-20-2013 06:23 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 0 comments »

My wife received a Hoosier Cabinet from her parents and is wanting it put in our house. But, before we do that we decided it needed some TLC. It had been “modified” previously for various reasons. Busted glue joints, damaged hinges, worn drawer slides, etc. Sorry I didn’t get any pics of such items or any “before” pictures for that matter. I had already started the refurb before I decided to do this blog. So, here is a short video to show were I’m at so far.

Grizzly Viking Sharpening Station Refurb #1: Sharpening System Refurb

04-09-2012 01:11 PM by ratchet | 4 comments »

Time for a refurb of a garage sale purchased (2009) Grizzly Viking Wet stone sharpening station. Although its obviously see better days (see photos), the old girl still works well and the stone is still almost full size. I also have a big Tormek and my thought was to use this unit in tandem (with this being the “coarser” stone). You can see in the photos that I have already trued the stone square with one of those diamond trueing thingys...Plans:DissassembleClean or replace rusted...

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...

I’m re-building an oud, an arabian instrument that is the direct gre...

02-11-2011 05:51 AM by HokieMojo | 7 comments »

Well, Neil has been making such good progress on his blog, it inspired me to get some work done. His work is here (but seriously Neil, these should be in blogs so I don’t miss em’ (-: )part 1part 2part 3part 4 So my plan was to build a Mr Sawdust table. The problem is that the instructions to size the table require you to measure the travel in the arm. Since my saw was 80% disassembled, I figured a change of plans was in order.
