Saw Talk #23: 12" W. Tyzack, Sons & Turner Carcase Saw - Fitting a folded back

01-05-2013 12:21 AM by Brit | 33 comments »

Have you missed me? Sorry for leaving you hanging for so long, but work was a bit manic leading up to Christmas. Now where was I? Oh yeah, I was just about to sharpen the last of my crosscut backsaws, a 12” carcase saw made by W. Tyzack, Sons & Turner. I restored this saw in part 1 of this blog series. It had a number of issues and honestly, it still has a few of them. 1) The plate was heavily pitted in places.2) The plate had a wave in it. 3) The spine was bent.4) ...

Universal Table Saw Jig #1: Neat Little Table Saw Jig you could make

07-06-2007 02:06 AM by John Nixon | 4 comments »

Shown in the video: This 13 minute video details the assembly of WOOD Magazine’s Universal Tablesaw Jig. The hardware kit shown in the video is from Schlabaugh & Sons, but you could easily make one yourself. The laser engraved table is nice, but you could reproduce that too. This woodworking video shows how to construct the kit and explains the basics of the how the Universal Tablesaw Jig operates. The laser engraved table accurately sets angles for miter cuts on the t...

Frame Saw Build #4: Stainless Steel Blade Clips

10-30-2011 05:42 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

It’s snowing here so Its out of the unheated shop and staying indoors – good time to make the blade clips. I chose to use stainless steel because I waned a material that won’t rust, be strong and capable of sustaining the blade tension, and I like the color (not a big fan of brass although I do like it as an accent in some cases). I ordered some 1/2” stainless steel rods from Speedymetals a while back for no real reason when I ordered some other material as it was o...

Saw Talk #13: Intrepid Sawster Triumphs over Adversity

06-18-2012 11:35 PM by Brit | 34 comments »

In part 12 we left our intrepid sawster (Is that a word? It is now.) feeling very sorry for himself. If you haven’t read part 12, you should read that first as this is a continuation of that post. Anyhow, you can’t keep a hand tool junkie down and suitably chastised by the saw gods, I picked myself up and worked the problem. I found out that I’d mistakenly thought the problem was what is known as ‘Cows and Calves’. However that is when the bottom of the gullet...

Frame Saw Build #3: Template me this, Curve me that.

10-24-2011 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Using my previously made SketchUp model I made a full sizes printed template using the following steps: 1. Setting up a Parallel view: The default view in SketchUp is “Perspective” which allows us to view things in 3D which looks ‘real’ due to the perspective view but for printing we want to be able to see the drawings in 2-D as if they were printed on a flat paper (which is what we about to do). In order to do this you need to go to the menus under “Camera...

Saw Talk #3: Spear & Jackson 8" Dovetail Saw Restoration

01-23-2012 02:39 AM by Brit | 29 comments »

Just a quick post to share a lovely little gem that I’ve just finished restoring. This is an 8” dovetail saw, filed 15 TPI rip, made by Spear and Jackson sometime between 1915 and 1925 I think. There’s some minor pitting on both sides of the plate, but nothing that will affect the saw in use. It has a nice thin plate which is just what’s needed in a dovetail saw and a 2” depth of cut. The handle is English beech and very comfortable in the hand. It ...

The Restoration of a 14" Tenon Saw #4: The Finale

12-12-2011 06:22 AM by Brit | 12 comments »

THE FINALE Repairing the Lamb’s TongueSo in my last post I’d fixed the large chip below the bottom saw nut. Now it was time to fix the chip on the lambs tongue. I started by paring the chipped surface flat with a chisel, then I ripped a section from an off-cut of beech dowel. Before gluing it onto the handle, I slid a hotel card key into the kerf where the saw plate goes. This served two purposes. Firstly, it ensured that I didn’t get excess squeeze out in the kerf whic...

Hand Saws #7: A couple more restores

02-03-2012 11:06 PM by Don W | 14 comments »

This is a Warranted Superior 26” 4 tpi Rip. All are basic restores. Soak in evapo-rust. Wire-brush, sand and polish. All handles were sanded down to 500 grit and given a few coats of BLO. I have sharpened to 2 back saws. The rip saw will get sharpened once I get a few new files. This saw has some minor pitting on the blade. I cleaned it up and wire brushed it. I decided not to sand any further. The character is fine for my shop. I have a few more to do, so I made a soak...

Recession, Dealing with the Internet, a Changing Business Formula, & Reading the Times We Are In

01-27-2012 07:14 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

Since my last muse of writing a blog, a lot has happened in my life and business. All of it has been good, I’ve just been so busy that I have not taken the time to write much. For instance, I went to North Carolina last June to teach a woodworking class at the John Campbell Folk School. I had a wonderful time away with the family, met some great guys, and had a wonderful time…...but have not taken time to document the adventure with the photos and stories I gathered while the...
