Bought this extremely dirty, fairly rusty, ole MFr off the Bay last spring. Sorry lost my before pics but oh well. Figured I would document before I possibly send her to a new home. Like her a lot but I already have plenty in the middle range of planes and someone else has expressed interest in it. Type 3 war era, no brass, hardwood knob and tote, lever cap was not painted but I painted with Duplicoat Chevy Victory Red Just a scratch Retuning on some figured cherry. had ...

Enlon Jointer Refurbish

08-28-2013 08:07 PM by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 9 comments »

When I moved back to the US from Kuwait, I was determined to 1. Meet my newborn son, 2. Get several specific food items I had been missing, and 3. Build my shop up and get some furniture built. My son is now 28 months old and has a 7 month old sister, I’ve eaten everywhere I wanted and then some, but I still have yet to make anything other than household necessities such as a simple shoe rack for my wife, a simple but fancy looking desk for myself, and shop stuffs. I’ve star...

Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #2: Getting the Jet BS Up and Running

08-27-2013 02:48 AM by FreezFurn | 0 comments »

It took me quite some time to get 240v ran to the basement, but the installation of a new gas stove right above me in the kitchen could not have been better timed. So, I extended the line from the stove and added two new outlets in the ceiling of my shop. I did not want to invest too much money into a lemon, so I hesitantly hooked it up to the new wiring. It cranked up and ran very loudly with no blade. Which brings me to bearings. Here is a pic of the old upper wheel bearings. They were...

More uses for pirate chests

08-26-2013 02:18 PM by Paul Sipos | 3 comments »

Took a job last year up in PA. which kept me from my shop most of the time, and away from Lumber jocks. Now I am getting to finish a project I started last summer. Refurbishing an old wooden chest. It was a wreck, half of the bottom part of the chest was gone, but the top was intact. It also has little metal wheels on the bottom of it for rolling it around which I thought was kind of odd. Never saw anything like that so early. I have restored it to better than found c...

Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it. Believe it or not, it was really nice wood. Beautiful grain, and I coulkd actually fit the pictures to the wood. Would you believe I lost his Phone number I have been trying to get ahoad of him, to get anot...

Reclaimed Glory #1: Salvaged Mystery Wood

08-15-2013 05:48 PM by palaswood | 10 comments »

Hi Wood lovers – I came upon some “trash” wood with some casters attached (not sure what it once was) discarded in a dumpster behind a renovator’s shop destined for the landfill, but fate would have other plans for it. The wood seemed in great shape with some good character beneath, so I rescued it, bundled it up, and rode it home on my bicycle (yes, thats right). When I got it home and sanded it down, I was AMAZED at the figure of these boards. Problem is I couldn’t figur...

Old Hand Drill refurbish completed (I think...)

08-13-2013 01:13 PM by jasondain | 10 comments »

This summer while on vacation in NH, we made a stop in Maine to hit some woodworking stops. First off we hit Christian Becksvoorts shop in New Gloucester then we went to Lie Nielsen tools and finally stopped at Liberty tool in Liberty ME. I had heard about this place in magazines and online and those didn’t even come close to preparing me for the number and variety of tools they had there. If you are in the area, I highly recommend stopping in. I know I will be making another trip t...
