Scroll sawing #1: Ordering a New Saw

06-05-2011 04:29 AM by swamps42 | 6 comments »

I did it today. I went into Woodcraft, I admired the floor models of scroll saws, and then I bit the bullet. I ordered the 21” Excalibur. I should arrive Friday. I took out a loan from my best friend so I could buy the saw now, instead of in 6 months. This way I’ll be able to start using it now and have a HUGE stock of yarn bowls and ornaments for the holiday sales I’m a part of. Guy pal, who I borrowed the money from, was really sure I should get the Dewalt and save 300 ...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #15: Sawstop

11-05-2007 02:57 PM by MsDebbieP | 27 comments »

Last month, while at the Woodstock Wood Show I had the opportunity to check out the SawStop table saw and chat with Eric Gewiss, the Marketing Manager. The HistorySteve Gass, Ph.D., a woodworker himself, invented the SawStop technology in 2000. Mr. Gass met with existing manufacturers to have them include his SawStop in their product lines, but did not have any success. After a couple of years of trying, he, along with David Fulmer and David Fanning, built their own table saw and in 2004 ...

Wood #1: Tambuti Wood "Spirostachys africana"

09-14-2011 07:10 AM by thiswoodshop | 3 comments »

Spirostachys africana is a medium-sized (about 30 ft tall) deciduous tree with a straight clear trunk found in the warmer parts of Southern Africa. Its wood is known as tamboti, tambotie, tambootie or tambuti. It prefers growing in single-species often along watercourses or on brackish flats and sandy soils. Despite its being prone to heart-rot, it is prized in the furniture industry for its beautiful, dense and durable timber, which is reddish-brown with darker streaks, a satin-like lu...

Design of a Static Table Saw

10-12-2009 11:46 PM by k1114n | 5 comments »

The aim of this project is to design and build a static-blade saw that replaces the rotating blade with a japanese handsaw blade which is very thin and removes little wood during the cut leaving a very thin ‘kerf’ (< 0.5mm). Japanese handsaws are well known to cut aggressively and unlike european saws they do so on the pull stroke. Also, the blades in japanese handsaws are designed to be easily removed from the handle. If this blade were fixed at a slight slope away from the in...

Logging Handles get a Fresh Breath of Air

04-17-2015 10:23 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I’m starting to restore an older logging saw. The handles were extremely dried out and the blade is of course rusty. I took both handles off and gave them a good inspection for cracks or anything else that would make them break. With nothing found wrong I moved on to the next step and that was a basic and quick cleaning. I used 320 grit sand paper to clean any rough edges off and get a smooth finish. Using boiled linseed oil I coated the handles heavily and let the oil soak it. what a d...

The Ultimate Band Saw Box Book- is back in print!

12-03-2014 10:32 PM by Donna Menke | 2 comments »

First a note of background:At the beginning of 2007 my book came out with the Sterling Publications company. They printed 16,000 copies and we sold them all. In 2010 the book went out of print- sad face. I made a digital download and a CD copy to keep the book alive since there were no used copies available- for less than a whole lot.Just this month a fine company, Echo Point Books, has published a wonderful new issue of the book. The cover is new- and I like it better than the old one. T...

Shop Tools #9: Today's Finds - Oct 12 2007

10-13-2007 05:22 AM by WayneC | 11 comments »

Today I visited a few antique stores in a couple of small towns near Sacramento. I thought I would share what I found. In addition to a few tools I found some woodworking books including a copy of Graham Blackburn’s “Illustrated Encyclopedia of Woodworking Handtools Instruments and Devices”. Without further adieu here are the tools…. A craftsman backsaw, two bronze spokeshaves, and a buck brothers chisel. I belive these are bronze and may be home ma...

My Millers Falls-Langdon Miter Box #1: Look Ma! No Motor!

01-16-2015 06:38 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

My pastor had this miter box in his garage. His father owned it originally. Since he has never used it, he offered it to me. Having had one of these on my mind for some time I immediately accepted sight unseen. (Well, truthfully, I knew where it was and sort of what condition the saw was in, but I did not know any of the particulars.) Today I was at the parsonage putting handles on the kitchen cabinets and I was able to take the saw home with me. All these pictures show th...
