Rediscovering Woodworking #3: More Hybrid than Power Journey

05-18-2016 12:13 AM by Tim Royal | 0 comments »

It was suggested in the comments on my first blog 2 years ago that I seek a more hand tool direction because of almost non-existent space to work. I AM a hybrid woodworker and love handtools, but have found that it is actually more and not less expensive to be completely hand tool oriented, primarily because larger projects using rough lumber are so labor and mainly space intensive as to be impractical when you are essentially forced to do most of your work outside in nice weather. What do yo...

The Stanley 45 revivial #2: Fence is cleaned up, cutters next.

04-15-2016 02:32 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Well, after a visit to the Doctor’s office for the Cardio Check up, went and got a bit more done. Yesterday, took the fence almost all the way down to just….parts. laid the parts out on the notepad, while wire wheeling each piece. Bolts were sprayed with a ittle WD40, then installed. I didn’t bother to remove the rosewood fence. The Knob was taken off, just to clean up the bolt that held it. Finally got it all back together….. Then cleaned the straight ...

The Stanley 45 revivial #1: Starting up

04-13-2016 06:08 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

One of the best prizes I have ever got, was a wooden box from a fellow LJer named Doe. It contained a Canadian made, Stanely No.45, T-20. Twas a bit rusty, here and there. My “job” was to bring it back to life, and post a few pictures when done. The plane? And,thanks to the USPS playing “catch” with it, the lid came out of the mailing carton in 5 pieces. William was kind enough to nail the pieces back together. So, a rehab? Tried all the parts, to see...

House Projects #1: It was Inevitable...

03-16-2016 03:06 AM by littlecope | 15 comments »

(The House Purchase last year made it inevitable that a new Series would need to be begun…) Debbie and I enjoyed our first Holiday Season here very much… So much so in fact, we were loath to see it end!But after the last of the tinsel, glitter, and sparkle were finally stowed away for next year, we discovered just how costly the Holidays had been…It was mid-February, before we again found ourselves on firmer financial footing and with that, our thoughts again turned to ou...

rehab for an old plane..

03-06-2016 02:13 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Won an Ohio Tool Co. No.0-7 last weekend. Waited all week for it to get here. This is what came out of the box today.. Like anything that is 100 years old, it had a few “issues” going on. Sole had plenty of rust craters, they were a bit larger than just pits. Mouth opening had been filed, by someone who had no clue. At least the wood was intact. First step in the rehab process….tear the plane down, as far as I can. Had to dump out a few things… Got ...

Inlay card table refurbish #6: Final Chapter

02-22-2016 07:36 PM by peterrum | 0 comments »

So how many of us change our plans as we go along on a woodworking project. I would think the majority do for any number of reasons. My initial thought for this project was to put an epoxy bar top finish on it. After my research it would cost me about $150 for a quality product. Scratch that idea and lets go with a poly finish. 8 coats of poly, then wet sanded, followed by two more coats on top and the top is done. The folding table leg hardware that was on the original was broken, so o...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...
