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...

Adventures in Tool Making #3: A Pair of Tenon Saws from a Disston Miter Saw - Shaping, Sanding, Polishing, and Finishing

06-16-2013 05:26 PM by grfrazee | 1 comment »

Happy Fathers’ Day everyone! I got some shop time this weekend and decided to work on the pair of tenon saws again. Unfortunately, I only had time to work on one of the saws, but the procedure is the same for the other one so it doesn’t really matter. I left off last time with the handles roughed out and rounded over from the router. Next step was finishing shaping the horns of the handle. I used a combination of this curved-tooth file that I picked up at an antique...

Get Glue off Whiteside Router Bit

01-13-2013 05:28 PM 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?

Auction antique tools success

03-22-2012 06:50 PM by YorkshireStewart | 16 comments »

I popped into the viewing for an auction of assorted paraphernalia last week and left a bid on a box of tools, as I couldn’t get back for the auction itself. A cast iron shooting plane had caught my eye in this mixed box. It’s a long way from being a Lie Nielsen or a Stanley, but it looked like one I could clean up and use. I ‘won’ the lot for GBP40 / $63 (surprise surprise, it went for my maximum bid!). However I’m happy with that even though there was a h...

Ornament 2007 #1: Design Planning

10-14-2007 04:37 AM by cheller | 1 comment »

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and relax. This is a long one. Earlier this year I posted pictures of a couple of the ornaments I’ve been making almost annually as a project. You can see them here. It’s time to start focusing on this year’s ornament. I started making an ornament/window hanging each year in 1996. I’ve missed two years – both because of work related time pressures. But every other year I’ve produced an edition of about 25 whic...

Saw Restoration #2: 75 Cent Disston Saw

10-24-2012 03:07 AM 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...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #1: I Gots da Wood

09-10-2013 09:20 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Because I am often frustrated by the limitations of my small table saw, I decided to put this project on the front burner. Today I drove up to a friend’s house to rescue him from being buried under too much wood. I came away with some 1/2 inch plywood less than 2 feet square and a few other goodies for future use. Then I headed down to my big box store and bought some hardware and a sheet of 1/2 inch plywood. I had it cut in quarters so that it would fit in my car. (Last time I asked...
