Modified my sliding crosscut sled for the band saw

01-05-2014 09:04 PM by CueballRosendaul | 2 comments »

A while back, I posted my sliding crosscut sled, but then I later built another sled that slid over both sides of the blade. The original sled was just to the left of the blade and left a cutoff piece to dance around and connect with the blade a few times. I found the perfect use for the old one sided sled at the band saw. I had to make a new runner, but the old one popped off easy enough. I cut it down to 12” wide and moved the end clamp closer to the left so it would not be off bal...

Saw vise build

01-02-2014 02:11 AM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

I have been in desperate need of a better way to hold my saws for sharpening. My old setup( two sticks of wood ~26 inches long which I would clamp onto saw plate and my vise) was simply not cutting it (sawing pun intended). I thought about purchasing vintage, but everyone always complained of bad vibrations, they are overpriced at antique shops, and I didn’t want to reposition my saw 4 times for full sized handsaws. I really liked Andy’s (Brit) design. It was economical, sturdy...

My Joinery Journey #1: Lumberjock Style Care Package

12-13-2013 06:31 AM by CFrye | 17 comments »

These beautiful saws arrived in the mail a few days ago, a Lumberjock care package from TerryR. Terry was the recipient (poor guy) of the plane I made for the 2013 Hand Plane Swap. He found out I didn’t have any (real) hand saws and determined to rectify said deficiency. I was speechless when I saw them (pun not intended). Between work and a fall on the ice I wasn’t able to try them out until today. With my husband instructing and offering needed advice, I cut my first blind m...

Saw Talk #30: Warranted Superior Medallions

11-24-2013 11:14 AM by Brit | 22 comments »

Over on the Saws, using collecting, restoring buying forum, summerfi (Bob) asked the following question with the accompanying collage of warranted superior medallions: “I have a question about Warranted Superior medallions. I’m most familiar with the eagle medallion, which came in several versions. There are several other WS medallions though (see pic below of medallions copied from the internet). My understanding is that some British sawmakers used the WS medallion on their saws, and some...

...in Which Tim Builds a Saw Bench (Part 3)

11-19-2013 03:06 PM by Tim Anderson | 5 comments »

And so we move on to the conclusion of this new useful work surface. When we last left the saw bench, it was dry fitted and ready for gluing. I then added some glue (quite a bit for some of my sloppier joints, and glued the whole thing together. I actually found that the bench was very stable once glued despite my somewhat sloppy joints, so I didn’t need to do any reinforcing beneath. After that, I found that it was a far cry from flat, so I had to spend quite a lot of time getting the ...

Confessions of a Novice Handsaw Filer

11-11-2013 04:12 AM by summerfi | 12 comments »

These are my observations about learning to sharpen handsaws, along with some reminiscing about years gone by. I will say at the outset that I consider myself a beginning handsaw filer. I still fall short of what I would call an accomplished filer, and I’m certainly no expert. As I’m still in learning mode, these observations are not intended to be instructional. Perhaps, however, my observations will be helpful, or at least interesting, to other beginners. I doubt that experienced handsaw fi...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #5: Top is Done

09-23-2013 07:38 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Well, I got the top of the router table done. The next step is to make the 3 drawers that go in the cabinet. Shown in the photo is my set up for milling the rabbets and dados in the drawer pieces. I temporarily put the sacrificial fence from my table saw on the table saw fence to use with the router. The last part of this project before painting will be to make a proper router fence. It will still attach to the table saw rip fence, but will have a few bells and whistles. [Edit] I mi...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #4: Starting to take shape

09-18-2013 11:36 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Today’s efforts went into building the router table insert onto which the router will be mounted. I laminated a piece of Luan to the 1/2 inch plywood to make it look nice. The underside of the plywood has been routed out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. I hope to create different throat inserts for when I have smaller work pieces. I also installed 3 lengths of 3/8 inch threaded rod with which the cabinet will be fastened to the table saw. That way I can remove it if I should wa...
