Oahu Guitar Restoration #2: Removing the Back

02-27-2017 02:39 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 3 comments »

Video entry is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3G8GxAHNmY The first step on this long project is to remove the back of the guitar. The reason we are doing this is two fold, there is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done to both the back, sides, and top of the guitar. If we were to try to do the level of work that is required through the soundhole we would be far too tedious and would end up with a poorer result. Removing the back allows me extremely easy access to all ...

Getting large black oak tree removed - looking for someone wanting wood

07-07-2016 12:10 PM by nita | 16 comments »

I was told that it would be best to remove my large old black oak tree, but I’d like to find someone that could use the wood for woodworking or firewood. I’m getting quotes from tree trimmers to remove it. It currently has one limb that snapped off from the top that is hanging down and needs removal.

Shop machine rust clean up. #1: Rockwell Delta jointer

06-27-2016 05:14 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 0 comments »

Sometimes my shop is lucky enough to inherit tools from other shops when they either close up or upgrade their machines. When this happens, if it’s a machine we can use, they are often in rough shape and in need of cleaning and maintenance. This Rockwell Delta jointer for instance needed a good cleaning on the deck, a new power cord, and new blades. In this post I’ll show you how an old time carpenter tought me to clean the metal deck of a shop machine. Start by soaking the ...

Hand Planes #2: NY Tool Co iron clean-up

04-19-2012 01:23 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 7 comments »

I got the iron cleaned up yesterday. Check out my website for more details. I was pretty impressed with the outcome. I gotta get it sharpened now and start cleaning the plane itself. I removed the handle the other day and cleaned out the mortise for a spot for the new handle. Have some left over mahogany, anyone think that will work? Which way is best for the grain to run, vertical or horizontal?

Electrolysis: on the cheap for vintage tool people

06-06-2011 04:49 AM by Bertha | 120 comments »

I’ve got some things with brown stuff on them. Lesser men call it rust; true LJ’s don’t recognize this “rust” as a worthy foe. To follow is a real-time electrolysis setup. . I’m no expert on electrolysis, but being stupid has never stopped me from doing stupid things. I’m going to blog an electrolysisi system for rusty tools in real time. You accept all risk, as I’ll be deemed incompetent pre-trial, so good luck in the civil.. First...

10-30-2007 09:23 PM by David | 16 comments »

Stanley Bench Plane Restoration UPDATE PDF ELECTROLYTIC RUST REMOVAL INSTRUCTION SHEET My Stanley Bench Plane restoration project is progressing well. All parts have been cleaned of rust using the electrolytic rust removal process described in the prior blog entry. I was really impressed with how clean the parts were after the electrolytic de-rusting process. As a reminder, this is NOT a plane with intrinsic collector value. I am restoring this “user plane” to be used on my bench...
