Sprunger 15" floor drill press

09-05-2014 06:19 AM by jlabos | 4 comments »

Sunday I brought home my latest craigslist find for my workshop. A Sprunger NDP 15 floor drill press for $50. It has some gunk and rust but it sounded fine and the quill is tight. It also came with a vise. I think I got a good deal. My plan is to clean it up and see how everything looks and decide if I will break it all down, paint it and do a complete restore.

Getting my tools ready #15: Rehabbed Delta 18" C Arm Scroll Saw...it's done!

07-18-2014 02:41 AM by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

This has been a learning experience in what not to do. LOL! Saw this scroll saw for 75 bucks on Craigslist. Drove to the house down dusty country roads and I blogged earlier about this saw requiring a couple hours of fixing the clamp to see it cut wood! Then I drove home in a snow storm. The first picture is how the saw looked in January! The second picture is how the rusted table looked. I got some suggestions from Blackie (Randy) regarding about using apple cider vinegar to rem...

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Finding the right hand plane

06-20-2013 04:43 AM by parkerdude | 7 comments »

I’ve been looking to grow my hand plane collection for almost a year. A Stanley #6 kinda satisfied my tastes, I don’t make a lot of large projects, and nice Stanley #7’s and #8’s usually command premium prices. This #6 showed up on eBay, and I bid until I won. A whole $39.75 Man, this thing is HUGE! Well at least for me. It weighs just under 8 pounds. (from Patrick’s Blood & Gore website), and the sole and sides were evenly covered in rust. ...

The Gang's All Here!

08-25-2011 03:09 AM by MGW | 13 comments »

I have been trolling Ebay for the last month or so looking for hand tools, especially planes. I’m sorry if I’m the one who stole something away from you, but I lost many more auctions than I won, as I’m sure everybody knows! Today, I arrived home to two boxes on the porch, containing the last two Stanley planes I needed to have what I feel is a pretty good start of a collection. (I had to rush them to the shop before YKW got home and found me getting “MORE PLANES&#...

Building the Shop #2: Walls

08-12-2009 04:30 AM by unklegwar | 5 comments »

So far, here’s the plan for “finishing” the walls. Subject to change as I see new and different cool stuff to buy. Exterior walls will be DryLok-ed, then Insulpink with 1×3 furring strips held by Tapcon screws right into the block. Sheathed with 7/16×4 x 8 OSB (at HD it’s only $1 more per sheet over sheetrock, and this will hold a screw anywhere, no hunting for studs). Inner walls will be OSB over 1×3 (no insul) One framed wall will be OSB ov...

jewelry chest #2: adding legs and top to chest

05-07-2010 11:34 PM by Kate | 2 comments »

My first blog entry showed the first step in rehabilitating an old chest. You can see step one here: http://lumberjocks.com/lumberjane/blog/15489 My next step was to add some feet to the case to get it off the ground and add some visual interest. Then I started working on the top. I made a straightforward cherry and walnut top. It was so-so. Then one of my students made a great suggestion and presto, the curved top was born (thanks to Ellen K. for her design ideas). Next I added ...
