Mongo: my first real workbench #8: Joinery: working out the legs

05-10-2017 02:58 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

Mongo’s legs are by far the most complex pieces, except perhaps the vices. They are responsible, obviously, for holding up the table surface but also for tying in the aprons and supporting the lower shelf. Clearances have to be made for the outermost ribs and bonus: there are no 90° cuts! Yay! But this is why I made the gauge in update 6 and it was used extensively. First step was to establish the top of the tenon at the correct angle. This is a through cut but I don’t have ...

The vintage no name saw set probably made in germany:

MASSIVE 35" Disston Miter Saw Restoration

04-20-2017 01:01 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have been hanging onto this massive Disston miter saw. I finally decided to restore it. The handle has seen its better days so I started there creating a new one from ambrosia maple. I then spent some time cleaning the saw up and polishing the saw nuts. I then went and sharpened to saw crosscut. Subscribe for more videos!

Wooden Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 #1: Google Sketchup and Design

01-05-2017 10:28 PM by TObenhuber | 0 comments »

Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...

Table Saw Restoration #1: Intro and Cleaning Up the Top

11-15-2016 01:44 PM by Jared Tohlen | 4 comments »

This is my first post or utterance on this site, so bear with me while I get in the swing of things… I’ve always wanted to get into woodworking so I can build useful and practical things with my own hands. Within the last few months I’ve come into a host of woodworking tools and machinery, most of which were simply given to me once I expressed interest. These items include: a Delta spindle sander, old craftsman dual disc/belt sander, a vintage Buffalo Tool drill press, a ...

Craftsman Saw Rebuild #1: Intro and Gameplan!

08-28-2016 01:21 PM by inghamworkshop | 3 comments »

Hello everyone, it’s both my first post to the site and my first ever blog post all in one. I’ve been browsing the site for a few weeks now because I’ve been on the market for a new table saw and sort of fell in love with the idea of rebuilding a Craftsman 113. Well after contacting a couple of people through my local Craigslist, today I went out and picked up not just one but two table saws. The first saw I found and actually had a friend go and take a look at for me...

San Diego Tool Swapmeet Finds #2: Keen Kutter Saw

08-07-2016 05:35 PM by YusukeKomiya | 1 comment »

The person who sold this told me it was collectible. Then he said $10 for the saw. I find the situation kind of funny in some way. This initially caught my eye because I liked the handle. I didn’t know about Keen Kutter beforehand. When I got home and did the research I was pretty happy to discover that it’s a pre-WWII model (the logo with the wedge and E.G. Simmons name indicates this). If anyone has more info that would be great.
