Disston No. 12 Handsaw with Cone Nuts and Washers

11-17-2017 04:38 AM by summerfi | 7 comments »

Disston No. 12 Handsaw with Cone Nuts and Washers The No. 12 handsaw was one of Disston’s premium saws. They began producing the saw sometime in the 1860s and discontinued its production when the model D-12 was introduced in 1928. During this period the No. 12’s handle and fasteners went through several iterations. According to the Disstonian Institute (http://www.disstonianinstitute.com/), the fasteners used during at least part of the 1860s and 1870s were brass truncated cone-shaped scre...

Restoration of an Infill Plane

09-29-2017 02:28 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube I had gotten this plane off of ebay initially. The seller is actually selling her father’s antique collection, sadly he passed away at a young age from cancer and has left her his collection. I decided to restore the plane and give her a little video of it so she could see what was being done with the tool. I didn’t want this tool to just sit on a shelf so I decided to give it a proper repair and put it to work. The blade is a bit narrow for the body but that&...

1950s Craftsman Tablesaw Restoration #2: What do you think about the color?

Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...
