Old Disston Handsaw Restoration #1: The beginning (now with pictures)

06-08-2011 03:14 AM by GMatheson | 7 comments »

I was out strolling the yard sales looking for an old Stanley handplane to restore but instead I came across two old Disston handsaws for $10 each. I personally don’t have many antique tools but have been thinking about starting a little collection lately so I picked them both up and took them home. When I got home I went on to the disstonian institutes website and found the saws I had just purchased. The first saw is a D8 that I dated between 1896-1917. It has the handle with the th...

Disston Backsaw Restoration

07-28-2015 08:19 PM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

So after restoring the Brace and Bit last week I got really hooked on restoring old tools. There is something about old tools… that is really amazing and bringing them back to life is so much fun. Ok so to make one thing clear, I like restoring these tools and using them, not just collecting them. I think that these tools where made to be used not just put up for display. I also filmed the restoration process and the video is here: So this week I won an Ebay auction and for $10 I go...

Hand Tools Cabinet #1: It all begins with a box

02-06-2009 11:12 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I saw this design in a finewoodworking article, and really liked the design, and functionality of the piece, and decided to follow along. I did not use FWW plans, but created my own to fit my space, and needs, while keeping the general design, and concept of the FWW piece in mind. (I made mine, smaller, and shallower then FWW cabinet, also the interior is much different). This is basically a fingerjointed box that the doors are cut off from (to match grain) and hinged on a piano hinge. pre...

random #18: Progress on those Hollywood Juniper limbs

05-27-2009 02:52 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

22 days ago I posted about the decimation of my Hollywood Junipers (Juniperus chinensis). My plan was to go through and ‘limb’ them, or at this scale, to ‘twig’ them. Little by little, I’ve been going out there for 15 minutes or so at a time, sawing each little twig off with a stroke of the Irwin carpenter’s saw, then scrubbing the sap off my hands. What a giant pain, but I admit it was fun. I love the feel and sound of the saw, the smell of the junipers, g...

It allows you to specify the dimensions & grain direction for your stock sheets material, specify the dimensions and the required grain direction for each part you need to cut for your project, and set the kerf amount, then watch this app ge...

Exercises in Artisanship #5: Handles, auctions, and progress

04-10-2012 11:38 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well folks a little more progress slowly coming into form on the maple handle design. Once more continuing to go about my shop efforts in a relaxed yet challenging pace. Shorter creative bursts giving forth an hour here or even a half hour there. I seem to leave the shop more satisfied knowing a more quality effort is being put into it all. The learning is actually becoming more than the old 3 hours straight and making various things with a mind almost in total fast forward mode with tools...

Dewalt 925H Radial Arm Saw

08-17-2013 01:39 AM by sblg43 | 6 comments »

I recently inherited this RAS from a friend. He told me that he had a RAS that he didn’t need any longer and if I didn’t have one, he would give it to me. He didn’t tell me anything about it. When he showed up, I have to admit that I wasn’t impressed with what I saw. My friend said that he used it for 30 years until he got a table saw, then he hardly ever used it. I had previously given away my Craftsman because I didn’t have the space – but I alw...

Tools #1: Ezee-Feed

11-22-2007 05:47 AM by Thos. Angle | 6 comments »

I had been wanting one of Lee Jesberger’s Ezee-Feeds ever since I first saw it. It looked like a great solution to the problem I was having getting a decent job of cutting sheet goods.Carleen and I fought the last cabinet job with a 4 roller stand and the new outfeed table I put on the saw. It was certainly better than the single roller stand we had been using. The out feed table and the new big workbench really took care of the out feed side but getting it started was still a two man(O...

"Working Hands Make Good Progress" --by RusticWoodArt

06-21-2007 02:06 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Working Hands Make Good Progress ….and so here i go again,sliding across the grains of wood,kicking up some sawdust as i plough a plane,looking to be fitted in tight for all good…. And so it was that Tuesday evening I managed to get this one finished up and started tweaking the saw to achieve it’s height of perfection, in the midst of cutting for ‘wood joinery’. One could call this one a ‘dovetail saw’....’sliding dovetail saw’....’push...

Powermatic PM 2000 #1: Finally... a new table saw!!

07-26-2007 04:39 AM by Calvin Sphuler | 6 comments »

Well, I must say, it has been a long time in the coming but my time has finally arrived! I just got the go ahead from my lovely and kind wife Hillary to make that one purchase every aspiring woodworker dreams of. In my case, I have been dreaming of this day since the moment I walked out of highschool woodshop for good… the day I would purchase the table saw of my dreams. After I got the go-shead, I started doing quite a bit of research and found a lot of good saws. I knew that I w...
