Lathe Stand #2: Waste Control

01-04-2015 12:17 AM by Jarred | 0 comments »

After a few episodes of near-drowning in a heap of sandpaper scraps, I decided enough was enough. I found a small plastic trash bin, placed two nails in the upper edge of the back of the stand, and had a ready-made, integrated waste solution. Pretty simple, but works. Nails in place before hanging the can (far right of picture): Back of the stand with can in place: Close-up: From the front:

Lathe Stand #1: The Redo

12-29-2014 04:42 AM by Jarred | 0 comments »

This summer I made a stand for a lathe that my father found at a garage sale and donated to me out of the goodness of his heart. I posted the project, which I made using a couple of 2×4’s and some scrap plywood. I painted it black for contrast with the turnings and completed it with casters to make it mobile. After using the lathe for awhile, I began noticing some recurring themes about the stand that I wanted to improve upon. First, I was having to travel to my grinder for shar...

Stanley Scraper Plane Handle For Size 12, 12-1/2 & 12-3/4

12-27-2014 10:15 PM by hhhopks | 0 comments »

I wanted to replace the missing handle on my Stanley scraper plane. The project should be a simple turning task if I only know what the key dimensions are. I gave up searching on the net after months of Google without success. Fortunately I was able to get my hands on several examples of the handle. I believe that the handles were hand turned, each one has some minor variance. Attached is a drawing of handle with dimensions for Lumberjocks’ future reference. Hopefully, it will sav...

Great app for tablets, Geometry Pad

12-22-2014 12:31 AM by Oldtool | 1 comment »

I found what I perceive to be a great tool for the shop, an app for Android tablets, called Geometry Pad. Besides being free, there is an upgrade version for a small fee. What I found it useful for is assisting me in determining angles and lengths for project components. I just completed a creche or manger for my son, in my usual manner of working projects – without plans. This manger has a peaked roof in the middle, so plugging in the desired length of the front and the height of the p...

Tales of a Hack #5: A quick moment to say ... thanks.

12-21-2014 08:46 PM by ajw1978 | 4 comments »

Taking a break from a disastrous Christmas-present-making effort and wanted to just spend a moment saying “thanks.” In my industry, I spend a lot of time online; Facebook, Twitter, message boards, blogs and so on and so forth. Long before I discovered the joy of woodworking and tool ownership, I was a gadget geek and spent a lot of time interacting on related websites. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned, both professionally and socially, over the years, it’...
