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

125 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...

Lessons... #3: Inheriting Tools #3

1934 days ago by Jim | 5 comments »

Well yet again I was very fortunate to have woodworkers in the family, and I recently came across some of my great grandfather’s tools. While digging around at my parents for my old camping tent I found 2 full size wood lathes and a bench top sander. I can vaguely remember my great grandfather always doing woodworking and knew instantly it was his stuff. The problem being, that after he passed away (had to have been almost 15 years ago) my dad laid them on the floor of our shed, and the...

Metal finish on wood

315 days ago by Ronald G Campbell | 5 comments »

In this blog I am going to give you a how to on my metallic finish of copper patina and rust application on wood As you can see I started with a small vessel that has been hollowed. This vessel is about 5 inches in heigh. I only want to rust the top as I am going to copper patina the base. The rust paint is a paint from Michaels which is a hobby store here in the USA. The paint is very thick and contains metal flake. It is put on very heavy and allowed to dry. Here I have applied...

Planes #1: Heres where it all begins.

1681 days ago by TD Bridges | 5 comments »

Hello, my name is TD and I’m a planeaholic. There I said it, they say that admitting you have a problem is the biggest step. Whew! Now I can get to the good stuff. Lets take a look at where it all began I was walking through a local junk store just minding my own business when my eyes were drawn to a collection of rusty metal items assembled in what looked to be the shape of a plane (I had seen planes before here on Lumberjocks but had never encountered one in the wild). I had ...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #1: The Day I got it

941 days ago by GlennsGrandson | 4 comments »

I have already posted in forums on this topic but I had a suggestion that this may be a good idea to update my restoration status as I go. So I found this Rockwell/Delta 37-220 6” Jointer on CL the other day, asking $150, I drove 40 miles to look at it. Talked him down to $100 rather easily being it was missing the table out lock knob, the back door for the enclosed baseis also missing, as well as the beds being coated in rust, and the end of the cord has cardboard and electrical tap...

Handplanes #1: Rust Removal & Rust Prevention

206 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)....

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #1: Columbian Woodworking Vise Find

925 days ago by hhhopks | 3 comments »

I just got back from a woodworking tool estate sale. There were many good buys. I would of purchase a lot more but ran out of money. I spotted this woodworking vise and noticed that it is a quick release. I already got an old vice for the workbench that I am currently building, but it is not a quick release. I thought I would give it a go. I am taking a chance in buying a vise that wouldn’t turn. For $25.00, I don’t think it is much of a gamble. Here’s what I have foun...

Water leak in heater: 1, lathe bed: 0

815 days ago by Ryan Haasen | 3 comments »

Quite the little coincidence occurred today. My wood-shop teacher lent me some lubricant protector for my cast-iron table tops on my tools because I told him they were unprotected, he’s a great guy. So, when I get home from school and go to the shop to apply it, what do I see? The last foot of my lathe bed full of rust from a leak in the heater above it. Lets just say I was not very happy. I am guessing some of it was just rust drops from the ceiling, as there is a now a stain on the co...

The Rust Bucket - Cleaning and refurbishing old tools

1136 days ago 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...
