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...

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...
