It’s a hectic world out there.

For thoes of us who love woodworking, but have other professions, where do we find time to do what we love? It’s difficult to, isn’t it?

Redneck Air Compressor Aftercooler

03-20-2017 02:30 PM by PPK | 5 comments »

I recently got a nice, used air compressor for a really great price. I have been needing one to power my air sander and also to keep up with my HVLP sprayer. This fits the bill perfectly. However, I want really dry air for using my spray gun, and also to make my other air tools last longer. Moist air isn’t good for any air tool that I’m aware of. So,I researched a bit, and decided to make a cooling loop to cool the air off after it come out of the tank/compressor before it runs th...

03-14-2017 09:32 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

2017 PATINA Spring Tool Sale and Auction

03-14-2017 06:21 PM by EricTwice | 0 comments »

If you get a chance go. A friend finally convinced me this year. I dropped my Stanley 9 1/2 and broke it. I bought it in 95. it is English made. I was hoping to find another like it and have spare parts. No such luck. I settled for a 1950s era U.S. made one, new in box for which I paid 20$. I’m happy. I also picked up a 6” Millers Falls sliding square and a 5” Starret for very reasonable. Yes there are some pricey offerings, but you can also find some very reasonable p...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #2: The solution to keeping cost low (in my situation)

As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...

small workshop ideas #1: Miter Saw and...

03-09-2017 01:38 PM by oldguy2 | 5 comments »

I recently sold the Sears miter saw stand I bought last spring ( I got greedy and thought it would be great $90) but the 4 ft. of floor space just did not work out even with shop vac and stuff under it. Before this in shop #4 I had a portamate and knew about the sliding supports and the open design. But in the large 2 car shop the one I liked best was on an old grill stand with a 1×12 and 2 boxes screwed down the height of the miter saw bed. one on each side. At the end I leve...
