Delta T3 Table Saw Fence

02-06-2018 01:00 AM by IantheTinker | 12 comments »

This is my new T3, freshly installed today after drilling a couple holes in my cast iron top. I did use some existing holes, and therefore the fence center does not line up with my saw blade, which in turn renders the tape useless. I had planned on shifting the tape, but soon after installation I realized it wasn’t a taped on rule, but some sort of paint or powder coating. I like the extra rip capacity I have with the current installation (31 3/4”), and the left side does not block as much of...

Flat Edge from Wonky Boards

01-23-2018 05:24 AM by IantheTinker | 2 comments »

I have a few pieces of oak that are roughly 3×4” and 5’ long. The are well seasoned and have lots of twist and bend in them. I wanted to cut them down and use them as trim in some upcoming projects. My method for doing this was to clamp a straight edge to them and make passes with a circular saw, gradually getting deeper each time. My blade couldn’t cut deep enough so I would the flip it on it’s side, set up the straight edge and cut along just deep enough to reach the end of my previous...

So here are the saws i found at my local flea maker, a restored them, the now cut, i only removed the rust and restored the totes, and sharpened the teeth, the set was bad on the longer rip saw but i managed to set the teeth, i was lucky to find the saws, the western saw are rare here in my country and saw setting tools are even rare. here are the saws and an old saw set pliers. The vintage no name saw set probably made in germany:

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #2: From Library to Leisure - Layout, Ripping, and Cutting

05-21-2014 12:50 AM by TimBridge | 1 comment »

I got the wood for this project for free from a friend of a friend’s old bookshelves. Some of it is badly warped, there are a few screw holes in it a bunch of places that I’ll have to plug, and it’s discolored from years of use so I am pre-sanding everything with 80 grit. Beggars can’t be choosers! All in all, there were four 6’x10” boards and eight 3’x10” boards. I laid everything out with my drywall square and speed square, making su...

...in Which Tim Builds a Saw Bench (Part 3)

11-19-2013 03:06 PM by Tim Anderson | 5 comments »

And so we move on to the conclusion of this new useful work surface. When we last left the saw bench, it was dry fitted and ready for gluing. I then added some glue (quite a bit for some of my sloppier joints, and glued the whole thing together. I actually found that the bench was very stable once glued despite my somewhat sloppy joints, so I didn’t need to do any reinforcing beneath. After that, I found that it was a far cry from flat, so I had to spend quite a lot of time getting the ...

Hand tool tips and tricks #17: Using Leverage to Keep Things in Place.

04-05-2013 01:22 PM by RGtools | 13 comments »

I believe it was Archimedes who once said “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” a more succinct way to say it would be, “levers are awesome”. ...but they don’t just move things. Here I have set up a lever of sorts. The fulcrum being the bench dog, and the clamp being Archimedes. Because of mechanical advantage it would take a tremendous amount of force to move the lever from the end near my vise. ...

The Restoration of a 14" Tenon Saw #1: Identification, Historical Evidence and a Vivid Imagination

10-02-2011 04:36 PM by Brit | 27 comments »

In this blog series, I’d like to invite you to join me on a journey of discovery as we look at the history and restoration of an old English back saw. This is where the story starts… I really wanted one of these (Adria Large Tenon Saw 14”x 4”) …but didn’t have enough of this: So over a number of weeks, I trawled through eBay.co.uk, until I finally found and bought this… The saw plate is 14” long and the saw is 18 ½” overall. It has an iron back and is...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #4: A sneak peak at the top layout... maple and walnut in love!!

07-11-2011 05:15 AM by RS Woodworks | 6 comments »

Not only do I love maple and walnut, but I think they love each other too. They look so damn good together… they work well together, and they compliment each other beautifully. What more could a couple ask for? Well tonight I managed a wee bit of shop time. Between my 4 hours of sleep last night, being up at 4:15 am, and dealing with a two year old and a four year old that don’t play nearly as nice together as maple and walnut do, it wasn’t much shop time. But it was enou...
