Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...

Bandsaw tension quick release addition

08-19-2017 06:18 PM by Oldtool | 1 comment »

I am currently in between projects and seeking something to do in the shop, so I decided to install a bandsaw tension release lever. My bandsaw is an Hatachi model CB13F, 12 inch saw that was also sold by Sears with the Craftsman model number 137.224320. Not interested in starting from scratch, I looked around the internet and found two possibly easy adaptable solutions by Grizzly; a lever device and a (as they call it) clutch device. I decided the easiest one to try would be the clutch re...

When Designing a Cabinet it Should be Frameless

08-03-2017 02:04 PM by CalOrgill | 10 comments »

Okay Guys Lets get down to business. I am in the process of designing a few night stands and a custom dresser to go with the bed that I recently build for myself. Face frame or Frameless?? I have decided to go frameless even though my cabinet will be less structurally sound. A traditional cabinet is not efficient. the cabinet is big and bulky. There is at least 3/4” more of wood all the way around the entire project for no reason. It takes more time to build cut and sand. it al...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Kids and the Hand Operaterd Drill Press

07-01-2017 09:41 PM by Jack McKee | 2 comments »

Kids and the Hand Operated Drill Press https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=tRAOO72GHfg3rd or 4th graders learn quickly, younger kids take longer. I found a hand-operated drill press at an antique tool sale. It makes many drilling operations easier and safer. With it, a child doesn’t have to support the weight of the drill or hold it straight. The feed mechanism allows her to apply more pressure to the bit. Kids enjoy using it. Many types of hand-operated drill presses were mad...

Amanda's Gift

07-01-2017 08:01 PM by Jack McKee | 1 comment »

Amanda’s Gift I was teaching “shop” to kindergardeners and as new teacher I found children loved activities I was able to create from the world of tools, building and fixing. We took apart VCR’s, patched bike tires, put faucets, flashlights and locks together, used the hot glue gun, and, best of all, did woodworking. One day five year old Amanda made the car pictured below: I try not to compliment projects much because I believe the reward to come from the work of building not from ...
