"new" drill press craftsman 150

08-02-2016 06:09 AM by emart | 2 comments »

Just dragged this home after work today. Supposedly the previous owner had gone through it and rebuilt the whole thing. first impression is needs some cleaning and oiling but everything seems to be in decent shape. In all honesty I wan’t looking for another craftsman machine but deltas from the era go for a lot more money here and this just popped up on craigslist right after I put the roof on my new shop (pics of that soon.) This drill press cost me $160 and came with not one b...

Fools for Tools #1: The Band Saw that was Meant to Be (Walker Turner 14")

04-11-2014 09:33 PM by palaswood | 11 comments »

So im cleaning up in my garage shop a couple saturdays ago when a white SUV pulls right up to it and the guy inside tells me his daughter is my neighbor, he sees all my wood and wants to know if I’m interested in an old band saw? His father handed it down to him when he passed, but he doesnt use it now since he’s older and doesnt do woodworking anymore. I told him its the missing ingredient in my shop and I’m very interested! He sends me some pictures and it looks prom...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1145: Black Beauty

10-05-2013 10:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 31 comments »

I know . . . I am a spoiled brat! At least I feel that way this morning. How can I not when I am so fortunate to now own a “Special Edition” of the FINEST scroll saws made? Oh – and it is actually PRETTY as well! After all, for someone like me who’s other job is an artist, it is an extra bonus to have such a fine piece of machinery color coordinate with the rest of the house. Especially since it sits in the corner of my kitchen. Ah . . . but now I am sounding lik...

I aten't dead (and a hardly disguised tool gloat)

11-27-2012 09:52 AM by llwynog | 11 comments »

Hello everyone.Just to tell you that I am still alive. I have been reading most of my buddies’ posts but did not have time to comment or post anything myself. The reason I have been quiet is that I have resigned from my work and I am in the process of moving to another town to start a new job. I had therefore to dismantle my workshop in order to sell my home more easily. It will probably be another 6 or 9 months before I can have a proper house of my own with a real worksho...

Tool Gloat #1: Cutting Wood Warms You Twice

03-17-2012 08:54 AM by MoshupTrail | 6 comments »

With an area of 1000sf, a 10’ ceiling and 2 large garage doors my shop is difficult to heat. In fact I didn’t even try. Until now. Okay, does this count as a tool? I dunno, but I bet there’s a few out there with cold shops like mine. So here I go trying my hand at being a stone mason because to meet code in a garage you have to have any open flame at least 18” off the floor. I had this stove installed by someone who knows what he’s doing. Needless ...

Tool Gloats-Estate Sales Pay Off

03-12-2012 02:07 AM by Brad | 11 comments »

I’ve always believed in the adage, “into each life some sun must shine.” And so it was recently as I visited two estate sales. As I was checking out Craig’s List on Thursday night, I came across two sales that had potential. One had actual pictures of tools (two of which I now own…plus a bunch more) while the other had a description that led me to believe it would be a worthy stop. And it was. Here’s my haul from the first place: There were three tables...

Tool Hunting Finds in Arizona

02-01-2012 11:26 PM by Brad | 7 comments »

I was visiting family in Phoenix and decided to try my luck at finding vintage tools before our 5:00 o’clock gin and tonic. The foraging turned out to be much more fruitful than my East coast tool hunt last year. Flea Market FindsFlea markets, like baseball, have been very, very good to me in the past. After Googling flea markets, I found the Phoenix Park ‘n Swap at 3801 E. Washington Street. So Mom and I piled in the car and cruised on over. The place was massive with hundreds of...
