Current Project #28: Next Step?

03-05-2016 12:10 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

Forgive the photo from my phone (though it IS right side up!) I’m on the fence as to what to do with this project and am seeking suggestions. The letters are not glued on yet. 1) I’m thinking of either gluing the letters on as shown and finishing the piece with spray lacquer. I hesitate because I think the woods used will pretty much all look the same. 2) My other thought is to paint everything black, sand the faces of the frame and the letters and then glue the lette...

02-21-2016 11:21 PM by Dex378 | 1 comment »

Had to run to the jobs site today to make sure one of the subs had everything he needed (of course he didn’t , but hey, he works 14 hour days on Sunday’s!)Anyway on the way back home I saw a little yard sale going on so I pulled up and found this gem of a hand saw, pretty damn rare and one I don’t have! It’s a Harvey W. Peace Brooklyn New York with the 1887 Patent Date! It’s in pretty good shape too! And if you guys read my stupid blog you know I am a...

Making Two Sets of Matching Heirloom Saws #1: The 10" Dovetail Saw

02-12-2016 02:20 AM by summerfi | 20 comments »

This blog entry is a continuation of an earlier blog post titled Making Two Sets of Heirloom Saws: The Gent's Saw and The Table Saw. The making of these saws is an ideal topic for a blog series, but I unfortunately didn’t think of that when I made the original post. I’ve now turned this into a series, but there is no way to go back and incorporate the original post into the series. That is why this post shows as #1 of the series even though it is about the third saws in the sets....

Refurbish, Reclaim or Reject!! #1: Picked Up and Old, Early Disston today. Is it too far gone?

02-01-2016 01:50 PM by Dex378 | 4 comments »

So I went to my local salvage/resale store today looking for anything cool they might have up in the tool section. After rummaging through all the junk I found a complete postwar Stanley #4 bench plane for $3.00, some halfway decent rasps for $0.25 each, and few other odds and ends. As I was leaving I decided to dig through all the hand saws they had jammed in an old slop sink. After going through about 30 of them I came across an early Disston. I looked at it for a little while and the handl...

Odds 'N' Ends #5: Clean Tools are Happy Tools

01-26-2016 08:29 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

It is a good idea to clean your blades every once in a while. I try to do it every 6 months or so, unless it needs to happen sooner. We had a rare winter rainstorm and it blew open my workshop doors, drenching everything, so I also cleaned the rust off of my cast iron tabletops. Enjoy! Clean Your Tools!

Workshop 2016 #3: Onward and upward!

01-20-2016 06:45 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

Now that the new year has started I’m getting entangled in fine tuning my new space and all the daydreams that go along with it. The table saw has had a few small, short runs checking the fence and installing risers to my assembly table so that it can learn a new trick as an out feed table! I had a small bit of oak ply laying around and it works out perfect to add just the right height I needed to the table. As you’ll see it’s just barely below the table saw top so the...

Wood Table Saw Wing #2: Part 2: The Metal

01-11-2016 08:38 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

In part 2 I construct the metal frame that will attach to the table saw fence rails and support the wing. I half/bolted and half/welded some 3/4×3/4×1/8 steel angle to the rails. Then I used some 3/8” hex cap screws as table levelers. Once everything was flat to my liking, I locked it all down from the underside with a couple of drywall screws. <iframe src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/8za03qx6nO8” frameborder=”0” height=”315” widt...

Dave's Workshop #13: I'm Getting a Scroll Saw!

01-08-2016 10:51 PM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

For some time I’ve thought of trying to use one of my spare jig saws to create a scroll saw. I’ve obviously not been in any great hurry to do this. However, a Do It Yourselfer friend mentioned to me some time ago that he had a scroll saw he wanted to get rid of because he never used it. He mentioned it again recently so I asked him what he’s take for it. He said $20, so I sealed the deal. He didn’t give me the model number, but said it was an older saw and was a Dreme...

Band Saw Out of Whack

11-04-2015 08:30 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Today my band saw decided it wanted some attention. I admit have been just changing blades and running lately. Today it held a small rebellion. First thing I noticed was a sort of knocking sound as it ran, so I turned off the saw, unplugged it and investigated. The 1/8 inch blade I put on yesterday was not riding on the tire on the lower wheel. So I did like we used to do on the small offset presses, I started taking things apart until solved the problem. In this case it was the additi...
