Saw Restorations #1: Spear & Jackson 10" Carcase Saw

03-02-2014 03:06 AM by grfrazee | 9 comments »

A while back I bought this saw either from ebay or an auction. Can’t really remember. Anyway, it was in kinda rough shape with a lot of rust. You can almost tell that it says “Spear & Jackson Sheffield” on the spine. This saw has brass split nuts. and a beech handle. I haven’t had the pleasure of unscrewing split nuts until now, so I had to improvise a split nut driver from a 1/2” spade bit. With the saw all apart, it was time to...

Batteries, Batt...ttt..eries, Batt...t...t..eries - why wilt you die...

08-22-2008 10:24 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

power… give me more power… I’ve had this cordless dewalt set for several years, and in the last year It has been stored most of the time. I have 3 18v batteries that would rotate between the tools, so I would always have a fresh battery to swap with… until recently – all 3 batteries died, don’t hold a charge – and in the last week won’t even charge at all … AAARRRGGGGHHH…. so now I have a collection (9) of pretty yellow tools t...

2nd Saw ??

09-18-2010 11:04 PM by majeagle1 | 13 comments »

I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...

Saw vise build

01-02-2014 02:11 AM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

I have been in desperate need of a better way to hold my saws for sharpening. My old setup( two sticks of wood ~26 inches long which I would clamp onto saw plate and my vise) was simply not cutting it (sawing pun intended). I thought about purchasing vintage, but everyone always complained of bad vibrations, they are overpriced at antique shops, and I didn’t want to reposition my saw 4 times for full sized handsaws. I really liked Andy’s (Brit) design. It was economical, sturdy...

Confessions of a Novice Handsaw Filer

11-11-2013 04:12 AM by summerfi | 12 comments »

These are my observations about learning to sharpen handsaws, along with some reminiscing about years gone by. I will say at the outset that I consider myself a beginning handsaw filer. I still fall short of what I would call an accomplished filer, and I’m certainly no expert. As I’m still in learning mode, these observations are not intended to be instructional. Perhaps, however, my observations will be helpful, or at least interesting, to other beginners. I doubt that experienced handsaw fi...

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...

Shop Update #2: Finally - A Serious Saw!

08-07-2011 05:54 AM by Dave | 14 comments »

I finally saved up enough to buy a cabinet saw that can handle everything I’ll be able to throw at it for many years to come. My old Ridgid TS2410LS is a great saw, but it doesn’t have the cutting capacity for big jobs, it’s dusty, and it’s LOUD. My new saw is a 3HP Saw Stop Professional Cabinet Saw with the 36” fence, industrial mobile base, and overarm dust collection. I won’t bother doing another review of it – the ones on here are pretty accu...
