Getting my tools ready #15: Rehabbed Delta 18" C Arm Scroll Saw...it's done!

4 days ago by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

This has been a learning experience in what not to do. LOL! Saw this scroll saw for 75 bucks on Craigslist. Drove to the house down dusty country roads and I blogged earlier about this saw requiring a couple hours of fixing the clamp to see it cut wood! Then I drove home in a snow storm. The first picture is how the saw looked in January! The second picture is how the rusted table looked. I got some suggestions from Blackie (Randy) regarding about using apple cider vinegar to rem...

Shop Notes #12: Good Ideas that aren't , more......

7 days ago by DocSavage45 | 12 comments »

Hey LJ’s, Been awhile since posting as I have been finishing up my house windows rehab for my second story for my 140 year old house. I’m re purposing one section of my shop bench into a hybrid wood workers ( in my case wood-butcher’s) bench. My plan was to make it mobile as my shop is getting smaller and smaller. Where did these big tools come from? Oh yeah I finally assembled them, and I purchased a used cabinet saw. The bench is to be mobile as are most of the ...

Old Tools

28 days ago by Jagadeeswara | 3 comments »

I have always had a passion for restoring things. One of my favourite activities is the resuscitation of old tools. Not only for the beauty of displaying them, but to give them a new sense of purpose and put them to good use. I pick up old tools at any chance I find. They can be from friends or family that no longer have a use or interest for them. I have found many tools cast away as rubbish and one of my favourite pastimes is routing through piles of rusty parts at secondhand markets. &#...

Getting my tools ready #14: How do I get the best out of an OLD DELTA 40-650 Type I? Need experienced advice!

46 days ago by DocSavage45 | 6 comments »

LJ’s I purchased a Delta C arm 18” scroll saw. It has been a misadventure born out of poverty. LOL! Have an intarsia, project in mind. It’s for an artist friend. An inlay into a box made from one of his great paintings. Purchased the 40-650 Type I Scroll Saw at least 3 months ago, maybe longer ( brought it home driving several hours in a blizzard). De rusted the aged metal table, painted and cleaned up the old girl. Looked good! The clamping mechanism and the cl...

Ok, here we go The plane had a few problems, some from the saw guy not following the lines. So, the mouth was extra big Yep, way too big, and ugly. two, the wedge was too short, allowing the iron to chatter along. First problem to fix was the mouth opening. Happen to have a cut-off from the plane build. Grain should match. Block was a bit big, and I have no resaw stuff to use. Got out the big stuff Sat the block right on the bench’s leg, and gave the big ch...

Craftsman Table Saw 113.298240 Completed

63 days ago by jlabos | 5 comments »

I was able to finish the table saw yesterday. The blade is moving up and down well. The tilting gets a little sticky still some times but I figure that will work its self out. The Blaster Teflon dry lube worked well. The Accu-Link belt from Harbor Freight runs smoothly. I recommend anyone near a Harbor Freight picking one up with a coupon, or ordering one online.I waxed the top with Johnson Wax along with the fence and rails so everything slides smoothly. I was able to align the fence with th...

In that crate were a “IDEAL” brand jack plane , a stanley 9 1/2 and a stanley 102. ...
