not much to see yet – i found a very rusty draw knife at an antique store and talked them down from $5 to $3 – here it is, as found…
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 email@example.com
Well, I finally got out in the shop for the first time in 2013! I covered my tools with tarps to slow the winter rust. It wasn’t too bad. A little surface rust on the tables. Nothing some WD-40, T-9, and paste wax couldn’t handle. I also decided to remove the Rockler router table from my table saw. I could never get the height right. It made it hard to cut accurately.I am still going to use the router table, but build a new dedicated base for it. I upgraded my lighting this wint...
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...
A good friend of mine came across this old vise. It was rusted a bit when he got it. We didn’t get any pictures of it in its original condition though. I recommended he use the molassas method of de-rusting it. He did that for a couple of weeks. We then took it to the car wash to spray it off and then dry it off. He scrubbed it a bit, then lubricated it a bit to loosen up a few joints and it works like a charm. I’ve never seen one of these quick-release mechanisms bu...

We had a new family move in on our street a few weeks ago, & since they were downsizing from their previous house, they had a lot of stuff they just didn’t want anymore which they ended up just putting in the garage. So, one thing led to another and I got a old table saw. It’s a 1973 Craftsman saw with a 1.5HP 3450 rpm hp induction motor. The top has a moderate amount of rust, most of which was removed in about 10 mins with a wire brush. There’s still some left, which...
I posted about my good fortune scoring this early 80’s Jet CTAS10 with Biesemeyer fence and 50” table…. Here she is…. just needs a little TLC I hit the top with course steel wool to get the flakey red rust off upon taking things apart I have these observations… The Biesemeyer fence is really rugged…. tube is straight as and arrow, even after some rough handling, and the ‘L’ brackets are really rugged… must ...
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...
