Two are tapered octagonal rosewood with brass ferrel turned from a brass heating nut.The other is turned from an Iroku door frame found in a builders skip (dumpster) The Six inch saw is 5/16 inch across the flats. The Seven inch saw (round handle) is 1/2 inch across the flats. The Eight inch saw (round handle) is 9/16 inch across the flats

Woodworking at the Fair...

07-27-2008 07:30 AM by RobH | 10 comments »

Hey all, I just had to show this off. The family and I went to the Orange County, VA fair today. This is an old fashioned agricultural fair that is held on the grounds of Montpelier, President James and former First Lady Dolly Madison’s home near Orange, VA. The kids had a blast looking at the animals, going to the petting zoo, and doing other things that they had to do. While we were there, my oldest spotted a Virginia State Forestry Service booth with a log and several two-ma...

Squaring my miter saw

12-11-2011 06:19 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

I had a Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Mitre Saw. It was working fine but could only cut a max of 5 inches wide boards. I was in the market for a new on but all of the sliding miter saw was so costly. I even considered a Harbor Freight one, but even at that it was a $100 and more for one. I decided to check out craigslist.com and found a Kobalt one there for s feel. Well, after I got home I found out why it was so cheap – it was not square. I tried a couple of time to square it up but it...

Saw Talk #22: Combination Saw Tooth Geometries Compared

08-12-2012 09:14 PM by Brit | 27 comments »

In my last post I said I would re-sharpen the Drabble and Sanderson to try Mark Harrell’s hybrid sharpening, but I decided to leave that one with 10 degrees of rake and 10 degrees of fleam. Instead, I re-toothed my 12” Spear and Jackson Leap Frog carcass saw from 10 tpi to 12tpi and applied Mark’s hybrid filing to that. I figured it would be good to have a 12” carcass saw with a combination filing as well as a 14” sash saw. Mark also recommends 10 degrees of rake, but he relaxes th...

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...

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...

Amazing Tools #14: Bridge City Tools Jointmaker Pro v2

12-20-2010 12:07 AM by Gary Fixler | 20 comments »

Well, this just shot to the top of my wishlist. I’ve for at least 6 years now been specifically wishing for a really accurate, really quiet way to cut wood in my house after hours, when I can’t run power tools due to neighbors close by here in crowded LA. Scroll to the bottom to watch the video, or watch it on YouTube in higher quality. It’s a bit crazy-priced right now at ~$1200, but I’m sure that’ll come down. For now, I’m dreaming of a few addition...

IWF #1: IWF bound and need some advice

08-20-2008 08:50 PM by Chris Davis | 4 comments »

I am on my way to IWF, You know the Disneyland for woodworkers, and I need some help. I have two objectives this year. One to have a better finish and two replace my radial arm saw. I think I know what I going to do with the spray gun. I am replacing my airless with an air-assisted airless. Any comments on that would be helpful, but I am really concerned on my cross cuts. I don’t use the radial arm saw much anymore. It is an old craftsman. Will not stay square and wobbles to...
