Restoring Woodworking Hand Tools #1: How to Remove Rust from Woodworking Tools

86 days ago by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’ve tried almost every method to remove rust from metal parts! In the above VIDEO I show my favorite method for removing rust from metal parts – specifically traditional woodworking hand tool parts – but it’ll work for most other metal parts, like auto parts. Click here to read the original blog post with links. But first let me tell you about the other methods that haven’t worked very well for me: -Electrolisys with a car batt...

Bailey No.4 revival

146 days ago by harum | 1 comment »

Finished cleaning and sharpening Stanley hand plane, Type 19, 1948-61, bought a couple of weeks ago. Here are before pictures: With helpful suggestions from LJ-ers, removed the rust and tuned whatever I could and sharpened the original blade. I have tried it in a real project: flattening and squaring a rather sloppy glue-up for a cutting board. A sugar maple glue-up. Looks like this is the best plane I have put my hands on (except, maybe, for that one in “Woodcraft”...

Handplanes #1: Rust Removal & Rust Prevention

167 days ago by OSU55 | 3 comments »

A lot of folks use electrolysis for rust removal, which works great and if you are going to do a lot of rust removal, I recommend it. I don’t do a lot of it, and find Evapo-Rust works spectacularly to clean up even pitted parts. The product is reusable, so a gallon jug lasts quite a while. I have some different sized plastic containers depending on the size of parts, and completely submerge the parts. I cover the container to limit evaporation (Saran Wrap works great if you don’t have a lid)....

My "new" $50 Craigslist Jointer

549 days ago by DouginVa | 22 comments »

So for the past 20 or so years I’ve had the below Rockwell 4” jointer. I bought it for $50 off the carpenter that added the second floor to my home. It needed a little work, but for the most part it served me well over the years. The downside, obviously, was the short bed and only a 4” width. So I’ve been searching for a long time for a Craigslist special. Then I saw a post for a 6” Delta jointer for only $100. I then noticed the author’s commen...

Cleaning great-grandpa's tools...

594 days ago by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

I decided to try my hand today at cleaning my great-grandfather Herbie's tools that my dad donated to the shop around Halloween. As you can see they’re pretty rusted and well used. The hammer is clearly missing a handle and the two chisels definitely need new handles (one is broken off in the cone, the other has it’s handle but that thing is so dry rotted it hardly weighs anything). After some research on the internet I found a couple home-remedy ideas (I don’t have t...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #2: Finally getting to it

832 days ago by GlennsGrandson | 2 comments »

Just put some stripping jelly on the base tonight with a good scouring first. Scoured it after the jelly sat for awhile. Then I with my ROS I took some sandpaper discs out of retirement from the shop floor and removed what I could with them. I’ll probably do it all again tomorrow and hit up the inside some too as well as work on the top. I want to get the base finished and then worry about the tough part (leveling the beds and setting the knives). Getting a little more excited now...

New Life for a Yankee

854 days ago by hhhopks | 1 comment »

I probably have spent more than I should at a recent tool sale. However, I could claim that I did manage to have a great find. As I was leaving, I noticed a pile of braces. Well, I already have a few and I also was interested in finding the missing jaws for my Yankee. Why not, I dig in to the pile. Since the Yankee has a distinct look with a button for ratchet control, it didn’t take long to find one. Yes, it is old and showed signs of age. Here are the pictures. The handle measure...

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #4: The Paint Job

858 days ago by hhhopks | 5 comments »

No different then painting the house. The trick is the preparation. That is the part that takes the most amount of time. The actual painting part goes very fast. I took the time to mask off the area that I didn’t want get painted. I didn’t want to have to scrape off the over spray. I took the time to mask off these areas. Tape and newspaper were used. Since my wife had previous compliant about my can spraying projects in the basement, I am doing in the garage with the garage door open...

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #3: Disassembly, Rust Removal & Cleaning

873 days ago by hhhopks | 7 comments »

This is part of III of the blog series where the vise is disassembled and cleaned. Disassembly:I would like to take the vise apart, however it looks like I have to take a compromise. I decided to disassemble the vise as much possible. Once the pin at the rear of the vise was tapped out, I was able to tap the rear guide plate out. Once that is out, the back jaw assembly slides out easily. Now you could clearly see the threaded shoe. I also noticed there is a spring on the fr...
