Craftsman Saw Rebuild #1: Intro and Gameplan!

08-28-2016 01:21 PM by slingham | 3 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw.

The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

Bailey number 5 restoration #1: The Acquisition

06-08-2016 02:49 PM by MarkStewart | 1 comment »

Several weeks ago I was discussing my wood working habit with my wife’s uncle, and expressed my desire to obtain an antique Stanley plane. He was about to head down to Texas for a vacation to some giant garage sale, and he’d keep an eye out for me. I pulled up a picture on my phone and showed him what i was looking for, and quickly forgot all about it. This past weekend we were helping them move and he said “hey i have a plane for you” and pulled out THIS ...
