Clearcut Chisels Restoration

08-04-2015 01:32 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

Well it’s official I am hooked… restoring old tools is my new obsession. This time I found some old chisels, Clearcut brand, ever heard of it? Me either. I also couldn’t find much information on the brand online, I did find one post that mentioned they are from Montgomery Ward but I can’t be sure of that. No matter the steel feels good. Guess we will see if it holds an edge. I also shot a video of the restoration which can be viewed here.View on YouTube As you can ...

Making Plane Blades #1: Fabrication and Heat Treatment

07-06-2015 10:40 PM by bobasaurus | 14 comments »

For the “Shop Made Tool Swap - 2015: Hand Planes and Spokeshaves”, I decided to make two planes (one to keep, one to swap) including the blades. I started with a 1/8” thick 2.5” wide precision ground flat bar of A2 tool steel that I happened to have on hand. After some requests for more information, I decided to start this tutorial blog for making them. You can buy tool steel pretty cheap from Enco: O1: ht...

Hi everyone, Have not posted here in a little while, been keeping busy in the wood shop! I’ve finally put together another video for my your tube channel. I’ve been working on a dining table base made with steel and some bent laminated Walnut. Have a look here as I pull the newly formed leg piece off of the mold and show you exactly how the table base will look once completed. Thanks hope you like it.Paul

An interesting series of block planes in which the base, and often other components are made of steel – formed using a combination of stamping press and punch press. They were touted as “indestructible”.

In this blog I am going to give you a how to on my metallic finish of copper patina and rust application on wood As you can see I started with a small vessel that has been hollowed. This vessel is about 5 inches in heigh. I only want to rust the top as I am going to copper patina the base. The rust paint is a paint from Michaels which is a hobby store here in the USA. The paint is very thick and contains metal flake. It is put on very heavy and allowed to dry. Here I have applied...

Sawstop PCS Mobile base #1: Planning

03-31-2013 10:25 PM by pneufab | 2 comments »

I am going to try doing a Blog. Although this project is going to be a metal working project, it is for a wood working tool. :) I ordered my Sawstop 3HP PCS a few weeks ago and it will arrive next week (4/1). I am on vacation the following week so I plan to get it assembled and tuned up. I was planning to get the mobile base for free (the promo that they are currently running) but as I was doing some thinking, I decided against it and will get the dust collection instead, for two reason...

Frame Saw Build #6: stressed out... or not enough?

05-27-2012 08:09 PM by PurpLev | 16 comments »

With the blade cut and drilled to length, and the frame shaped and finished (BLO) it was time to add some tension to the frame to pull on the blade. I was toying with some ideas, and ended up getting an IKEA steel wire hanger as the tension control. It’s quite simple, and uses 2 threaded ends one left hand one right hand, both pulling on the wire: Putting tension on the blade using this method is not as easy I was hoping it would be and requires a pin to roate and thread those...

Cutting Metal in the Woodshop

03-19-2012 01:17 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 20 comments »

As woodworkers we also need to cut metal once in a while. Also, having the ability to cut metal will allow us to create custom handles as I have on past projects. The question is how do we get a clean cut? Hacksaw? Reciprocating saw? Nope – portaband is the answer. The portaband is a powerful, smooth cutting portable bandsaw and a tool that I recommend for any custom woodworkding shop. Hope you enjoy! Your friend in the shop- Todd A. Clippinger Share the Love~Share ...
