Restoration #1: Antique electrolysis report

1806 days ago by kennethw | 2 comments »

Hi folks! Just a note on the progress of the electrolysis system that I’ve built in order to restore a few of my grandfather’s old tools. I don’t have any pictures to post just yet, but this has been a pretty amazing process. I can’t compare it to any other process, but it has been very interesting to watch the reaction as it does its magic. It seemed to be the least damaging and toxic/caustic way to go about bringing these tools back into usable condition. In parti...

Drawknife Revitalization Project #1: introducing the blade and the plan

538 days ago by RobynHoodridge | 2 comments »

I desperately want a drawknife. They’re difficult to find here in South Africa.I found and bought one that’s in pretty shocking condition. For the equivalent of $18.So my only hope to own a functional drawknife is to repair / recondition / restore the one I have.Despite how crazy it is I’m not just going to do the minimum to get a working tool out of it, i’m going to re-imagine the whole thing. Nothing major like going from straight to curved blade shape. But since i w...

My Journey #6: Restoring some old iron

1420 days ago by Trimble | 1 comment »

So, yesterday, I spent more time working on my daughter’s dollhouse. Damn, there are LOTS of little parts to sand. Wow. Yeah, so there’s that. But, I also did some work on my new big toy, the old 50’s Craftsman 6” jointer. I was rusted all to heck, but I bought a bottle of Evapo-rust, and I have been soaking the parts in it. This stuff kicks some ass! If you have rust you need to get rid of, get some of this stuff. It melts away. Plus, it’s not an ...

Zerust Anti-Rust Liners #1: Table Saw Rust Protection

473 days ago by JohnH2889 | 0 comments »

I just signed w/Lumberjocks…I have a new Steel City table saw, model 35990C, and am concerned about table top rust. My saw is kept in my unheated Wisconsin garage, and the temperature/humidity can have fairly wide fluctuations. I read a few entries concerning Zerust anti-rust liners, particularly the Zerust lined plywood cover made by CueballRosendaul. My question is: Has anyone used Zerust liners for rust protection?...and…Does it seem to work? I can be reached at jkhien@att.net
