Growing Hand Tool Collection #1: Saws (Old and New)

06-01-2011 10:02 AM by Tedstor | 8 comments »

Two years ago, my (wood) hand tool collection could easily fit into a milk crate. And while my current collection is still not large or impressive, I have accumulated quite a bit of stuff. I really like vintage tools and about 1/3 of my collection was manufactured before I was born (1976). I usually shy away from fixer uppers, though. I try to find mint condition, new-old-stock, or nicely restored items that I can put straight to work. Most of my new tools are on the low end of the price s...

Deal of all deals!

05-31-2011 04:13 AM by GodofBiscuits | 8 comments »

Today while browsing through Craigslist for a planer, I happened on a listing for a Craftsman Radial Arm Saw which I’ve always wanted to add to my arsenal of tools. When I read the ad and looked at the pictures, the price just didn’t seem right. I’ve seen ads where the person didn’t pay much attention to what they were typing and left off a 1 in front of the price so this seemed like one of those ads. I decided to call and see so the curiosity would not drive me batty....

Freuf Saw Blade on sale at HD

05-29-2011 10:11 PM by Karson | 8 comments »

Yesterday I watched a video by Chuck Bender Acantuscarver on making string inlays. He was using a Freud Diablo saw blade 7 1/4” on his 10” table saw. Today I was walking through Big Orange and I spied the blades hanging on a display rack. Man, were they thin kerf. I checked their web site and they are less than 1/16” thick. The blades were about 10-15 bucks depending on the blade that you bought. Then I walked by the Tool Crib and they had a display of the 24 tooth ...

Chevy II; The Canadian Cousin #1: Garry Oak Slabs to Basic Framework

04-16-2011 03:01 AM by shipwright | 14 comments »

I’ve already blogged my AZ chevalet so this will be a simple “keep you up to date” one about “Chevy II”. When I moved to my current address and built my shop I was fortunate enough to run into a fellow who was moving and had to sell his hoard of local hardwoods. Long story short, I bought two heaped pickup truck fulls of a variety of local hardwoods, all two or more years air dried, for $200 and he helped me move it. I’m not usually a big Oak fan but as ...

Learning to cut through dovetails and tenons

03-14-2011 04:42 PM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

If you read my earlier post on making my own Dowel Nuts then I think I figured out what I did. After reading my own post I think what happened was this… I tapped the threads in the brass while the brass was still warm from drilling the pilot holes and after the bar cooled off completely the hole size shrunk just a hair and that was what made the threads tight. I also noticed that the threads on the bolts were not in the best shape so I chased the threads in the brass with a tap and ch...

Beads Box #7: Fill, File, Fo - The filling of Them Pores

12-31-2010 09:51 AM by PurpLev | 21 comments »

I am pretty much done with the construction of the box itself. I had left the pins extra long and needed to trim them off, which is better then leaving them extra short and um… oh shoot. After some trimming and cleaning up the joints today I drilled and installed the hinges for the doors. I used SOSS model 100 hinges, 2 on each door which is good for material 1/2” thickness. I like those hinges, easy to install, fit well, and completely hidden for a nice clean look. You’l...

Christmas Presents: Early & Late

12-27-2010 04:43 AM by spunwood | 5 comments »

I was gifted by a very generous Lumberjock with a Skilsaw. I just recently used it to crosscut some hard maple, and I wanted to say thank you again to Jim C (it works great!). Also, I wish all of you here a Merry Christmas. That was the early Christmas gift. The late Christmas gifts are for my parents which I am just now working on: A wine balancer & A cutting board. You can see all three gifts in the the pictures

My Observations of the DeWalt DWS520SK TrackSaw

12-21-2010 12:38 AM by Marty Backe | 7 comments »

After having used the Dewalt TrackSaw for a bit, I thought I’d share my observations of its setup and use. In this video I discuss some items that are not generally addressed in other reviews that I’ve seen. In this second part of my review, I share my opinions of the few accessories that are available for the saw. There’s one accessory in particular that you want to avoid at all costs.

Sharpening Table Saw blades by hand and cutting nails

12-20-2010 08:52 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 30 comments »

I decided to sharpen the firewood/ pallet blade today. It was cutting pretty slow. Thank goodness it is a combination blade without too many teeth. While I was filing, the first time I have tried this by the way :-)), I thought I should have put the blade on backwards and jointed it with a file. Has anyone ever done this? 20 minutes after fininshing the filing, I hit a nail!! Murphy’s law, I thought about that before I filed, but it did cut very well and I could defiinitely tell ...
