Spokeshave (restore) blog

09-03-2010 10:01 AM by mafe | 12 comments »

Spokeshave restore, refurbishThis is what I do… Ok, here is the old chap ready for some LJ love. Take it apart. (I discovered a defect, but since it’s a manual tool, this is no problem). Remove the rust from the cap iron. Sand it flat, so you will have a good contact to the blade. Here you see it after, the flat area will secure a good contact now. I choose also to work a little on the top of the cap, to round it, and make a nice sharp edge so the shaves will run...

What is your Favorite Tool?

08-11-2010 03:46 AM by Chefdavid | 17 comments »

Was working today in my workshop and I began to wonder what my favorite tool that I own/use. I began to wonder, I enjoy all of my tools, some more than others. I focused on my newest tool, my planer. I like it and the things that is allows me to do, but it is not my favorite tool. Than I began to think about my skill saw and how much I use it and what I use it for. Still not my favorite tool. Well as I was standing in the middle of my workshop I noticed what I was leaning on. My Jawhors...

Cutlist4.1 #4: Listing by Sub-Assembly...finally

08-03-2010 03:13 PM by daltxguy | 40 comments »

Often requested and finally here! I’ve finally changed the Sketchup cutlist4.1 plugin to show the partslist by sub-assembly based on the nested components in your model. I’ve uploaded cutlist4.1.0.6pre You’re really going to want to delete the old version completely before installing this version because the structure of the plugin has changed completely. The ruby script is now called ‘cutlist.rb’ and it’s really just a stub with all of the main code...

My Tools #6: Jet 16-32 drum sander

07-07-2010 03:09 AM by Gary Fixler | 19 comments »

Mom visited a couple of weeks back for 10 days. She tends to come out once per year in the summer to see me, her only son. She helped me replace some broken things in my continuing “everything’s breaking” period (broke a bit last week on the mill – pricey, too – my computer a week or two before that, and my TV shortly before that, sigh…). Then over dinner for her birthday somewhere nice we talked about woodworking, and my idea for making some things like cu...

Amazing Tools #11: The Robland Axis Ergo panel saw

05-19-2010 12:19 PM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

This thing quite literally wouldn’t fit in my garage. Take everything out of my garage right now, and take off a wall of your choosing, and you couldn’t slide this into it and replace the wall. I’m still putting it on my wishlist. Watch it in even higher resolution here.

Safety and The SawStop #1: Table saw Safety

05-12-2010 05:39 AM by wichle | 1 comment »

Just read Smiiy’s account of his kick back event and was surprised to see the number of LJ’s who were surprised in one way or another by their table saw. On the other hand I have seen some surprising statistcs indicating that injuries on the table saw are pretty common. I am one of those statistics having removed the tip of my left little finger at the outermost joint at the same time nipping the tip of my index and 4th finger. No more flexing my little finger at high tea with t...

New Tool - Part 2 - The Tax Return

04-16-2010 07:07 PM by Kerry Drake | 9 comments »

At the end of last year I was kind of hoping that our tax return would be enough to let me buy a new big ticket tool for my workshop (I define “big ticket” as over $200.00). I knew I wanted to that tool to be a bandsaw, the question was really WHICH bandsaw to get. I googled, I did searches on You Tube, I visited manufacturers websites, I posted questions in woodworking forums. I created a comparison chart of 15 different band saws from 10 different manufacturers, comparing r...
