Pole Barn Workshop Remodel #3: Slow, very slow progress

04-03-2018 04:45 PM by PoohBaah | 7 comments »

Well, it has been 6 months since the last update and well not much has changed. Between fall harvest, winter and now calving season coming early there was not much progress on the old barn but we are starting to gain some momentum now. I have been in contact with a local guy that is going to put the new roof on for me. I was in Menards on Saturday to pick up supplies for a new set of back steps and while loading the lumber I noticed they had 45 sheets of 12’ white steel in the discount ...

PanaVise Restoration #1: #380 Base and #303 Standard Head

02-20-2018 11:16 PM by twoblacklabs | 6 comments »

A few months ago, I traveled to Ohio to pickup an Incra LS Positioner off of Craigslist (less than 100 miles). The nice fella took the time to give a tour of his extravagant basement shop. (Wish I had photos to share). A retired engineer, he took great pride in his shop. He also gave me a box of junked Panavises as he didn’t have time to do anything with them. Not one to say no, I took the box with no clue as to what I would do with them. In fact, until he showed me the box, I had never...

Motivation for a bandsaw tune-up

12-26-2017 12:21 AM by WhattheChuck | 6 comments »

LJ Gang— I’ve been doing a bandsaw tune-up, and thought I’d post the end result to motivate folks that might have been putting this off. Uh, like yours truly. These are a test dovetail corner I cut to see how it all worked out. And here is a 7.5” resaw veneer I also managed to make. Pretty awesome! This bedeviled me forever—the ability to do this. What did I do? 1. Changed both top and bottom bearings ($80)2. Added an aftermarket Kreg fen...

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&...
