This page (Artist Corner) would allow you to sell your wood creations with just a flat fee of 10% of the sale price.You would keep your item and when it sells I print the shipping label and email it to you along with sending you a check or pa...

Unisaw 34-804 #2: 1963

08-27-2012 04:52 PM by RCT | 8 comments »

Ok went and picked up another unisaw. Look at this junk it is not painted brown this is rust!Thought I’d show how bad they can get when left out in the weather. I was told this is only about a year of buildup but I am skeptical. I’ll let you know how this works over the next few days.

Craftsman Table Saw Restoration #1: First Impressions & Disassembly

08-27-2012 03:07 AM by JackC | 6 comments »

We had a new family move in on our street a few weeks ago, & since they were downsizing from their previous house, they had a lot of stuff they just didn’t want anymore which they ended up just putting in the garage. So, one thing led to another and I got a old table saw. It’s a 1973 Craftsman saw with a 1.5HP 3450 rpm hp induction motor. The top has a moderate amount of rust, most of which was removed in about 10 mins with a wire brush. There’s still some left, which...

The $5 Challenge Plane

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… ...

Sojourn #1: Getting started

08-17-2012 04:48 PM by barefootromp | 0 comments »

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...

My first Plane Restore - Wards Master #5

08-15-2012 01:42 PM by carguy460 | 6 comments »

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…...
