Hide Glue #1: Woodtreks video on Hide glue, featuring W Patrick Edwards

03-18-2013 09:48 PM by Patricelejeune | 6 comments »

I really like those 3 videos Christopher Schwartz came to do at the workshop a while ago. They are pretty good in my opinion let me know what you think! Hide (& Animal Protein) Glues: Background, Selection and How to Prepare Hammer Veneering: How To Apply Decorative Veneers Using Only Hand Tools If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask, we may do complementary video even if time is scarce.

Saturday night saw cleanup

03-31-2012 11:02 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hello again woodworkers, I figured I would sit down and soon get a cold ale and journal another blog about a fun evening in the shop completeing 2 more cleanup additions to my recent auction adventures! Now…..if you have been following this….I know I said there will be another post of a second free saw cleaned up…well..did not even get to that yet….lol. So these are two other tool picks from a few recent auctions I was lucky to come across and pick up very cheap. ...

Shop Update #15: Got the saw assembled...

06-16-2011 05:59 AM by TheKingInYellow | 6 comments »

I accidentally spent the whole day in the garage assembling the new Ridgid saw. So here are my impressions: Tolerances were pretty decent but there is a distinct bow in the steel extensions. I opted to keep them as level with the cast iron as possible but on the outer edge of the extensions they dip as much as 1/32nd of an inch. Not likely to be a huge issue, but one to note. The cast iron itself is pretty much dead flat but getting the insert to sit flat wasn’t fully possible. I su...

Ridiculous Tool Gloat

07-21-2013 09:08 PM by Deycart | 6 comments »

Last month I was chatting with a guy who ran a used tool shop near me and the conversation drifted to talking about planes. He lamented the fact that he had trouble selling the planes he purchased and I gave him a quick lesson on how to figure the value of an average plane and separate the good ones from the junk. In exchange for my lesson he told me about a guy who was selling his collection of tools up the street. This is what I came home with for about 280. Stanley No 2, No 5 SW, No 23,...

Thumbing a saw to test for spring steel

04-16-2012 08:35 PM by need2boat | 6 comments »

As any of you know if you know me, I can’t get near a saw without thumping on it with my thumb and hearing the tone. A wile back I said I’d make a quick vid of me doing it and I bought a saw this past weekend that was one of the cleanest I’ve heard. I normally bend my hand to raise and lower the pitch but this is so clean I just wanted to play one note and hear how long it would go. Listen for yourself. Joe

Scroll sawing #1: Ordering a New Saw

06-05-2011 04:29 AM by swamps42 | 6 comments »

I did it today. I went into Woodcraft, I admired the floor models of scroll saws, and then I bit the bullet. I ordered the 21” Excalibur. I should arrive Friday. I took out a loan from my best friend so I could buy the saw now, instead of in 6 months. This way I’ll be able to start using it now and have a HUGE stock of yarn bowls and ornaments for the holiday sales I’m a part of. Guy pal, who I borrowed the money from, was really sure I should get the Dewalt and save 300 ...

My Millers Falls-Langdon Miter Box #1: Look Ma! No Motor!

01-16-2015 06:38 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

My pastor had this miter box in his garage. His father owned it originally. Since he has never used it, he offered it to me. Having had one of these on my mind for some time I immediately accepted sight unseen. (Well, truthfully, I knew where it was and sort of what condition the saw was in, but I did not know any of the particulars.) Today I was at the parsonage putting handles on the kitchen cabinets and I was able to take the saw home with me. All these pictures show th...

Auction morning seek and saws!

03-12-2012 08:07 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Isn’t it funny…..it’s always when you least expect it when you stumble upon something you had no idea you would find. There I was on a rather chilly 45 degree morning outside at an auction..the isles of tables although sometimes windier than your spirits care for…there were still enough vendors aboard the blacktop with secret finds to go around for all…..lol For old handtool pickers this for me was a pretty sweet morning indeed. I had just begun my journ...

Modern Sawboard #1: Brainstorming for ideas...

03-24-2012 04:36 AM by chopnhack | 6 comments »

Well the sawboard is a pretty simple jig, but man is it invaluable! The other day I needed to rip long taper cuts on a 2×6 and it was just the tool. I have been thinking about incorporating some holding clamps to the base to make it quicker to set up and use. This is what I came up with as my first run at design. I am thinking this would be ideal for breaking down plywood. The overall length is longer than 8’ so the design is two ply to allow for overlap. One side has a piece of ...

Amazing Tools #4: cedar shake saws

06-15-2009 06:56 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

This is without a doubt the scariest looking sawyer job I’ve seen yet. Check out how casually he thrusts his unsupervised hand at the 4’+ tall circular saw blade! There are many more videos of people in this job with these saws on YouTube. Scary stuff.
