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

03-04-2012 12:27 AM 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...

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #2: Will it turn?

02-23-2012 04:22 AM by hhhopks | 8 comments »

So far so good, there are no surprises. No cracks or breaks. As you recall from my previous blog post the vise will not turn. There is no sense of restoring the vise if you can get to move. So this blog is about getting the screw to turn.I searched for woodworking Columbian vise information. There don’t seem to be much. What I have found so far are mostly pictures and mounting information, but not the details that I am after. Hopefully I am correct in my selection of words in describin...

The Restoration of a 14" Tenon Saw #2: Cleaning the Saw Plate

11-06-2011 11:40 PM by Brit | 14 comments »

This saw plate is remarkably well preserved for its age, but it could benefit from a clean. I gathered the stuff I thought I might need, but all I used was the 3-IN-ONE degreaser foam, the Hammerite Rust Removal Gel, the green scouring pad, kitchen roll, and wet and dry paper (more than you see in the picture below). I start by spraying the plate with the degreaser. I have found that the rust remover works better on the first application if the surface has been degreased first. ...

The Rust Bucket - Cleaning and refurbishing old tools

07-23-2011 07:28 AM by Lockwatcher | 3 comments »

This article first appeared on my website, Lockwatcher's Lair – I am duplicating it here to share my experience using this system with my fellow Lumberjocks. While not specificly “woodworking” this system can speed up the process of reconditioning old tools without destroying them. The Rust Bucket Let me first thank my good friend Dave, of Pearce Woodworking for this great idea. Dave had some used hand tools he needed to clean up and had located this method th...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #1: Intro and first step of cleaning & rust removal

12-29-2010 11:51 PM by Dan | 8 comments »

There are many good blogs, articles and web pages out there that give you all you need to know about restoring old hand planes. Most of what I learned I got from other peoples advice. Even though there are many resources out there for restoring planes I found myself learning new tips and tricks from each and every one of them. I decided to do a series of blogs on my methods for restoring planes. Most of what I discuss you may all ready know from reading other blogs and sites but hopefully I c...

Shopsmith Restoration #9: Electrolysis for Rust Removal

04-27-2010 09:33 AM by PG_Zac | 14 comments »

This series has been quiet for a while, as I’ve been buying replacement parts off eBay and dealing with several small(ish) technical issues. The members of the ShopSmith owners’ forum have been extremely helpful. My thanks to the LJ members who pointed me to that forum. Here is my experience with removing rust by Electrolysis and I’m sure that many LJ’s can benefit using this technique for tool restoration. If you have any questions, just ask and I’ll do my...

Workshop Renovation #1: Phase 1

04-03-2010 11:10 PM by hjt | 6 comments »

As of this posting I’m 2 days shy of being 53 years old and during the past 2 year (since 2008) I’ve done more projects then I ever have. Just goes to show what a “new” wife will do to a man (or is the FOR a man)!!! All of these projects have been completed using hand power tools – a nice set of Ridgid Cordless to be exact. And each of these projects always seems to take far longer then I estimated. A typical two day project can take upwards of 6 weeks. Some of this time is eaten up by th...

Hand plane restoring #2: Restoring is addictive

02-09-2010 12:04 PM by jchomme | 7 comments »

I guess this is kind of a venting process. Ive recently restored a few Bailey’s (#3 and 2-4’s) and its getting addictive. Ive cleaned some and Ive tuned some but putting a fresh coat of paint, polishing the brass, and refurbing the totes and knobs is very rewarding. Ive accumulated more baileys than I need, but when I see one I want to make it shine again(hopefuly better). Amongst other hand plane stuff I am “refurbing” my 4’s. ended up with a union in the ...

Hand Tool Journey #8: Electrolysis on the Stanley No. 62

11-20-2009 09:58 PM by Blake | 21 comments »

I always wanted to try electrolysis rust removal and it is just as simple and effective as they claim. Note: This is not a full tutorial on electrolysis. You must research the many other resources on the internet before attempting this your self. IT CAN BE DEADLY AND ILLEGAL IF DONE WRONG. This is the old Stanley No. 62 low angle jack plane that needed to be de-rusted: Here it is in pieces: And here are a couple “before” photos of the body: Here̵...
