Quick Tips #4: Sharpen Often & Sharpening a Spokeshave Blade Freehand

07-06-2015 05:50 PM by Matthew Morris | 0 comments »

View on YouTube When you are using hand tools like a chisel or a plane, I like to sharpen the blade often. I will even sharpen multiples times during a day if I am using that tool a lot. After talking about this, I show you how I freehand sharpen a spokeshave blade.

File Chisel Build #1: Part 1: The shaping and grinding

06-20-2015 08:03 PM by Sanderguy777 | 0 comments »

This is my first try at this blog thing so any advice is welcome. I’m sorry for the lack of pics but I thought of posting this after I cut the file. Anyway, I needed a wide chisel and I had a file that was oversized so I chopped it up and started grinding away…. This is the part that I will use on this project. After I had cut it, I thought that I should have measured so that the finished product would span a 2×4. So if you do this, remember to measure…. This i...

Revonoc 28" Restoration

06-07-2015 07:51 PM by Mambrax | 3 comments »

Over view of a Revonoc 28” Restoration. Got it a rummage sale for $20. probably paid to much, but i never saw a other one like that before.So step 1 : removing all part. Be-ward of dead bugs !!! As seen it was in rough shape. Most all those get wrap all possible way, which make them unusable. It’s very important to square them out before any think. Now a plane that size is almost impossible to sand for the normal man like me. The only way is that I personally can u...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #17: Ok, I think I've recovered now

04-07-2015 12:07 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

After a long morning drinking my coffee and thinking about alternatives to keep working, I drove to the lumber yard and got a piece of baltic birch to make the flattening sled out of. When I came back I took my bent saw blade out and put a crescent wrench on the bent tooth. I moved it about three times and I think it may be useable. I soaked it in simple green to get the pitch off and I’ll try it tomorrow. I’m expecting that it’ll be a little rough but that’s ok. IR...

File to knife... #1: Starting the process

03-20-2015 10:49 PM by MadJester | 14 comments »

Hello all! Let me begin by saying that this is not an original idea, many have done this before…this is just my attempt of it that I have been tossing around in my head for quite a long time now… I’ve researched online, and I was looking for a way to do this without a forge involved…my friend has one, but I believe that I can shape the knives without losing the temper if I’m careful not to let the metal get too hot. I started with some vintage files/rasps ...

Jointer Knife Sharpening

03-13-2015 01:22 PM by PeteCollin | 2 comments »

Hello All, I made this video a couple of months ago. It seems to get views pretty steadily, so that might mean it is of some use to fellow woodworkers! I live far from any city, so it is a pain to send knives out to get sharpened or go buy new knives. I found a guy on the internet who made chisel sharpening jigs from a big block of teflon. Using that same idea, I made a larger one out of hard maple to accommodate a 6” jointer knife. Have been using that setup for a few years n...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #31: DIY Veritas Powered Sharpening System

02-19-2015 02:24 PM by Paul Bucalo | 11 comments »

I have a Pro subscription to Instructables.com, which has come in handy many a time. In today’s suggestions email I found an Instructable on making your own powered sharpening system, designed similar to the Veritas unit costing about $400 USD. Being a tinkerer at heart, I thought it precious that the motor unit came from a bread maker: my wife has one just like the one used in the Instructable. We all know where that beast will be in its second life. Makendo’s Sharpening Syste...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #30: Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide Arrived

02-17-2015 08:56 PM by Paul Bucalo | 7 comments »

My ordered Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide arrived yesterday afternoon while I was out blowing snow hither and yonder. It arrived in a slightly larger box than the one from the manufacturer. I was surprised it got here so quickly. When I looked at the originating address on the shipping invoice and box it became clear why. Lee Valley Tools Ltd has a physical presence in New York State: Ogdensburg. The shipping was free. Check. It was cheaper to buy from Lee Valley directly than through one of t...
