Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #62: Tuning a Rabbet Plane

02-07-2016 07:33 PM by Paul Bucalo | 0 comments »

Last year I acquired this rabbet plane from a computer client. I finally got around to honing the iron and tuning the setup. I ended up eyeballing the iron angle in a Veritas Mk II and came close enough that the new edge would work for this plane. It took a while to get the skew angle eyeballed and locked down. I put an ever-so-slight beveled on the corners. Wood plane are still a bit of mystery (black art!) to me. It took a lot of fiddling and guess work to figure out how to make the ...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Sharpening Jig

01-28-2016 04:03 PM by yuridichesky | 11 comments »

After I completed my recent project – mini plane – I realized that the iron of this little plane was too small to sharpen it comfortably. I sharpen my edges free-hand, and this iron is just too small to hold it while sharpening. So I came up with this simple solution: some kind of iron holder made from mild construction steel. Now it’s pretty easy to do the job: When it was done I remembered how Paul Sellers made his simple jig for sharpening spokeshaves ir...

With the holidays over and the house starting to return to normal I took the time to edit some more video on the essential oil cabinet I made for my son for Christmas. A lot of hand work over a lot of days, and a long time to edit it too. View on YouTube

WS3000 jig for router plane blades.

12-21-2015 10:49 PM by Trakem2 | 2 comments »

Trying to sharpen my router plane blades by hand was taking way too long and kind of frustrating. So I came up with a jig to hold the blades on my Worksharp. Trying to hold them free hand wasn’t working so well, they would catch and I would end up with multiple facets and an edge that wasn’t straight. So I came up with a simple jig to hold the blades at the proper angle (about 35 degrees). Its simply a small block of wood with a v-groove down the middle to hold the blade, and is g...

Skew jig for WS3000

12-11-2015 06:03 PM by Trakem2 | 1 comment »

Here are some pics of the skew sharpening jig that I made for my WS3000 to sharpen the blade for my Stanley #289 plane. The block is approximately 3” x 2” x 10”. The bed angle is 30 degrees and the skew angle is 22 degrees. The block is clamped to the work surface and the blade is placed in the jig and then is slid down to the grinding wheel. I got this idea from Chris Schwarzs blog at Popular Woodworking on how to correct the skew for a plane blade or chisel. ...

KEEPING TOOLS SHARP #1: A freebie idea for protecting an edge

12-06-2015 04:23 AM by trotter | 5 comments »

This occurred to me as a freebie idea. I try to keep my blades sharp but it is not just the cost but the time travelling back and forth to the store that irritates me. I am sure anyone who has sent saw blades away for sharpening will have had them come back protected by an oily waxy substance like this. I have been keeping this material to melt down and protect my chisels after sharpening. You will also see the red wax covering from Babybel cheeses. I plan to melt these as well i...
