Fools for Tools #2: This Sexy Walker Turner Bandsaw just wont track! HELP!

08-29-2014 06:24 PM by palaswood | 9 comments »

OK I know you guys know a thing or two about vintage, cast iron band saws. If you read the previous entry, I bought this saw for a song but after trying for a week or so to get the blade to track, I gave up and its been collecting dust ever since. That in itself is a travesty! I mean just Look at this beaut! I dont have any pics of the wheels, but I’ll get some up tonight if i remember. My issue is this: Lower wheel is about 3/16ths further out than the upper wheel, i...

My BT3100 Table Saw Upgrades

08-07-2014 05:41 PM by JD13 | 4 comments »

Years ago when I just needed a cheap table saw for misc household projects, I bought a Ryobi BT3100 at Home Depot. At that time, it was cheap and was one of the nicer ones for the money. Now, years later, as I am getting back into woodworking, I need a good saw that will handle jigs and such. I know this is a divided topic – some LOVE it, some HATE. I own one and I’m still on the fence. It only had a miter slot on one side, doesn’t have a nice flat cast-iron bed and ...

Restoring my Great Grandfather's Table Saw ca. 1950s

06-23-2014 02:28 AM by wmixon | 7 comments »

Hi everyone, I have been a member on lumberjocks for only a few weeks…but have been a reader for a while. I have recently had the opportunity to rebuild my Great Grandfather’s 1950s era Craftsman 113.xx series table saw. What a journey of historical context and family memories this project was for me! The saw was given to me by my father when I expressed interest in setting up a work shop (I’m 28). While in working condition, it had much to be done and some improv...

My Beginning Days #4: Grizzly Tent Sale #1

05-20-2014 02:00 PM by Kaa162 | 8 comments »

I went to the Grizzly tent sale this weekend in PA. It was quite the experience. First, I spoke to a rep on the phone who suggested that I get there about an hour ahead of time… Try 2-3 hours. By the time we go there, there were at least 200 people in front of us. By the time the tent sale opened, the line was SUPER long. When the clock struck 8am, you have never witnessed a line move as fast as this one. We were so far back and yet it took seconds ...

Saws: Restoring, Collecting, Using – My 7 Month Journey

05-16-2014 04:38 PM by summerfi | 11 comments »

Saws: Restoring, Collecting, Using – My 7 Month Journey It has been seven months since my first post on Lumberjocks. The motivation for that first post was to try to locate a medallion for a $3 British-made handsaw I purchased on eBay. Little did I know at the time what lay ahead for me on the journey of saw restoration and collecting. Photo: My $3 saw that started it all.. Now, with summer coming on and my attention, of necessity, turning more towards catching up on all my outsi...

Going Galoot #6: Time to step up to the re-plate.

05-05-2014 05:33 PM by JayT | 8 comments »

Shop’s Log: May 5 2014 Having been working on some saw cleanups, modifcations, restorations and refurbs, I was finally ready to tackle a project that has been sitting in the saw till for over a year. Last March, I picked up an 8 inch Disston at an antique shop for a very reasonable amount. I thought at the time all it was going to need was cleaned up and sharpened, but alas, it was not to be. When cleaning up the plate, I found a 1/2in long crack at the toothline. I ha...

Breathing life into a trusty saw

04-19-2014 11:51 PM by GodofBiscuits | 5 comments »

I bought my Craftsman table saw about 6 years ago now and it’s been a good saw as long as you took extra special care to ensure the horrid fence it came with was straight each and every time you moved it. The fence system that came in these saw is appalling to say the least and down right garbage when compared to a good biesemeyer style fence. Last week using the saw, I moved the fence and spent several minutes trying to get it straight so I didn’t ruin the beautiful piece of curl...
