36" S A Woods bandsaw restoration #2: cleaning up

07-26-2011 08:51 PM by jeffl | 9 comments »

I didn’t know where to start but I really wanted a more appropriate color than John Deere green. Some of the paint practically fell off and I got out an old gallon of paint stripper, I’m not positive but I think 20 years old since my daughter is turning 20 soon and I think I bought it to strip a crib for her. I took some pics of the can since the front said instructions on the side then I took a pic of the side. I don’t know the original color but ...

36" S A Woods bandsaw restoration #1: moving inside

07-26-2011 01:58 PM by jeffl | 3 comments »

The blacksmith I bought the saw from loaded it on my trailer with a jib crane. He asked me how I was going to unload when I got home and I told him the truth, I’ll figure it out when I get home. I got lucky the trailer was the same level as my shop floor. , and the saw would fit through a 36” by 84” doorway if I took off some parts and the door with no room to spare. I put a 6” by6” across the opposite end of my shop squirted dawn soap on the trailer and floor a...

36" S A Woods bandsaw restoration

07-26-2011 03:18 AM by jeffl | 11 comments »

I recently found a 36” saw for sale on Craigslist. It was only three hours away in Tennessee, so my wife and I rode up to see the saw before I gave it much thought. It was at a blacksmith shop and he needed more room. After awhile we made a deal and I arranged to come pick It up. My truck had 249,600 miles at the time so I threw out some hints to my brother and some friends with newer trucks, no bites. I checked on renting a truck, whew. So I went through the brakes, beari...

Roubo Cabinet #16: Final Assembly - Drawer Backs, Bottoms and Fitting

07-25-2011 04:48 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 10 comments »

This is the last post required to complete the build and make ready for applying the finish of my choice to get this one in the books. Once all the drawer fronts have been joined to the sides, and those cut to rough length, I had to work on adding backs to the drawers as well as bottoms. All drawer backs were set into simple dados that were cut on the table saw. For the Big Drawer as well as the Big Pair of drawers, the drawer bottom consists of a single piece of repurposed hardboa...

Stanley No. 48, new to me

07-23-2011 06:33 PM by Andrew | 2 comments »

I saw Roy Underhill using one of these, and I thought it was the Bees Knees. I really wanted one. I have been searching ebay for an affordable one for quite sometime. I got this one for about $20 shipping included. Problem with cheap antiques is there is always gonna be missing parts, or unrepairable damage. This one was missing the blades and the screws to hold them. I figured I could buy new blades or cut them out of an old blade. So after arrival, I checked it out, and the fence mov...

Stanley No. 7 Identification

07-01-2011 02:38 AM by hodgepodge | 9 comments »

Ok, so I found this plane at an estate sale a few months ago. I decided to finally give it a make over when I started trying to ID the type. Using the flow charts I find online I would assume it is a type 4. However, there are some strange things that don’t match like the frog screws being round head screws, and the frog seat on the sole is kind of strange. Also, the lever cap has an interesting design on near the bottom. The only marks on the sole that I can make out is No 7 in front o...
