587 days ago by rockinmichael | 3 comments »

My new 1.5 inch flush trim router bit from Whiteside Router bits was purchased with a generous amount of glue covering it (to prevent rust, and from cutting yourself). How might I get this glue off?

Saw Talk #23: 12" W. Tyzack, Sons & Turner Carcase Saw - Fitting a folded back

595 days ago by Brit | 33 comments »

Have you missed me? Sorry for leaving you hanging for so long, but work was a bit manic leading up to Christmas. Now where was I? Oh yeah, I was just about to sharpen the last of my crosscut backsaws, a 12” carcase saw made by W. Tyzack, Sons & Turner. I restored this saw in part 1 of this blog series. It had a number of issues and honestly, it still has a few of them. 1) The plate was heavily pitted in places.2) The plate had a wave in it. 3) The spine was bent.4) ...

Making a Saw Vise

645 days ago by nobuckle | 3 comments »

Some time ago I purchased a scroll saw off Craig’s List. The guy I bought it from also gave me some old hand saws. I got them home and cleaned them up a bit. Upon inspecting the teeth I realized that they needed some work. I decided to make a saw vise so I could sharpen them. I made a video of the techniques I used to build one that I found in the SketchUp 3D Warehouse. It’s made of some white oak that I had laying around. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to build one of your own....

Surprise tool welcomed

654 days ago by Thermaloy | 2 comments »

Found myself in need of a new saw for cross-cutting and another for ripping. Looked at the Axminster Tools Catalogue (Axminster in Devon, UK) which my son describes as ‘pornography for woodworkers’, and found a Japanese pull saw which combines both functions. It was not cheap but I bought it by mail order anyway. Very flexible blade with teeth of different profiles on top and bottom of the long dimension, and a straight handle. Did some sawing and could not believe the experien...

Saw Restoration #2: 75 Cent Disston Saw

668 days ago by gilleseg | 3 comments »

The wife and I went out to a local flea market a week ago, looking for nothing in particular. This was the last flea market for the year at this particular venue and the first time we had been this year. I cam across a pair of saws, painted and looking sad. They had tags on the at $1.50 each. I was looking at them and wasn’t sure if I wanted to take on a couple more saws, when the proprietor came around and told me everything was half off. She said it was on account of wanting to cle...

Refrigerators, CAD, and Circumcision #1: Introduction

677 days ago by oldnovice | 9 comments »

My wife wanted a bigger refrigerator with a bottom freezer. I agreed (he who doesn’t agree with his wife is a fool) because, I was also tired of bending down to get things off the bottom shelf, not having enough freezer room, and low efficiency of the current unit. Figures 1 and 2 below show CAD models of the old and new refrigerators and are a result of a high resolution print of the screen contents of Creo Elements/Direct Modeling Express. Since the refrigerators were white, the backgrou...

Saw Restoration #1: 50 Cent Disston Saw

695 days ago by gilleseg | 11 comments »

I was out with the wife, hitting up local garage sales, when we stopped at a condo community whose residents are mostly retired. They had Tupperware, pots, pans, and assorted nicknacks. I wandered around there small garage and didn’t see anything I was interested in. I turned to head out and venture onto the next garage when I bumped my knee on something. It was a hand saw with a 50 Cent sticker on it. I did not hesitate, I grabbed it up and handed it to my wife as she headed toward...
