That I took upon myself. Got a box in the mail. Opened it up to…. WOW! Rusty and Crusty! Made of a Witch’s Brew and set some thing to soak awhile. I also got some supplies in house, charged up the cordless drill’ batteries, both of them. Tub for the soaking was from the Hospital stay last year. Didn’t have anything to “shock” it with, so, time for the wire wheels, and some sandpaper…Got the small items cleaned up a bit… ...

I am an artist by nature, my father raised me to appriciate all forms of mediums. My primary medium has always been paper and whatever drawing utinsel I could get ahold of. It was my 1st year in college that I discovered cigar box guitars (cbg’s) and fell in love with wood working. My first attempt only cost me $20 to make and sounded great even tho it had a few dead frets becuse I didn’t and still don’t have all the proper tools to make one. Being creative I just made do wi...
I was lucky enough to inherit some of my grandfathers tools recently, and one of the planes I acquired intrigued me. I had never seen a Wards Master plane before, so I thought it was pretty cool to have one. Plus, a plane with a blue frog is just “plane” awesome in my mind. It was in pretty good shape, just really dirty and kinda rusty. I figured this was a good candidate for my first plane restoration. The lever cap didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped…...
Well to start I pulled 2 old hand planes outta pappy’s garage and thought I would bring em home and see what I could do with them. At first glance I was about ready to just leave em and go to lowes and buy one of there cheap ones they offer well only one they offer for like 20 bucks or something. But I didn’t instead I came home and decided to clean the one up a bit and the larger one wasn’t too awful bad. Your opinion may differ but this is what im working with at the momen...
Acorn #4 plane.

Sanded the knob and tote & put on some danish oil. Had a little accident with the sole when ...
Fellow LumberJocks,I submit to you, the second installment of the Unisaw Experience… Day two plan: remove the table clean the interior of the saw inspect trunion ways clean ways of any crud/corrosion check motor clearance… Table removal was uneventful, but required assistance from my 20 year old son to put it aside once the bolts were removed. When removing the bolts, I noticed one was longer than the other three. Not sure if that is normal, or ?? Maybe someone h...
