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

04-14-2012 04:47 AM 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

03-22-2012 11:47 PM 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

03-18-2012 05:58 PM 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

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 | 9 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. ...

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...

12-29-2010 11:51 PM by Dan | 10 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.

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...
