Based on an article by James Thompson I found on OldToolsShop.com. I though I woud try using Citric Acid for rust removal. The article can be found at the following link. http://www.oldtoolsshop.com/z_pdf/restore/RemovingRust-CitricAcid-ne.pdf Citric acid is used in food processing and seems to do a good job removing rust. I checked the local yellow pages and found a local beer home brewing store. I called them and confirmed that I could purchase citric acid for $5 per pound. I made...

Craftsman-Sears, is like Charlie Sheen, either you love them, or you hate them. But I fall into a category that Ithink many fall into: The quiet MAJORITY. We know what we want, can afford, and can live with. Each time I get a new tool, I increase my productivity and ability to overcome problems with workable solutions because I have the tooling that allows me to use alternative techniques. As a new woodworker, with only six years experience, Craftsman, has been a big part of my wood worki...
After a long week at work, I decided it was time to start the process of restoring my bench planes. I have been collecting them for a while with the intent of getting a good set of operational hand planes. I am hoping I will get a good set of usable planes at a reasonable cost. Currently, I have the following size planes set aside for restoration: #3, #4, #4 1/2, #605, #5 1/2, #6, #7 and #8. All of these are Stanley except for the #8 which is a Sargent VBM 428. The #4 1/2 and t...
Hello all I have a box design I want to do and it involves inlaying small irregular shaped pieces. How am I going to do it? I thought long and hard. Having already gone to acquisition level 2 once before. I’ve gone and got myself a scroll saw. Its only a cheapie at £55 ($84). 16”, 90 watt motor, tiltable table. I’ve had my first play. I’m using a piece of 6mm MDF as a zero clearance device. I’m quite impressed. The test for the inset pieces was easy. So I d...
(continued from Lee Valley Interview, part I) Following my interview with Robin Lee, President of Lee Valley, I took my Canadian Film Crew with me as I headed to my “local” Lee Valley Store, which is just an hour away, for my very first public appearance as MsDebbieP, the Canadian LumberJock. The weather was the hottest that we’ve had all summer and, boy oh boy, was the hat and coat ever hot! Inside, Don Riley, the store manager, gave me a tour, starting with the warehouse area i...

Dear Sir, We are very sorry to hear that our first generation custom made six-in-one screwdriver did not live up to your screw driving expectations of being able to drive nearly as many screws as the Titanic made Trans-Atlantic voyages. We take our product design and customer service very seriously, and have sacked everyone involved with the first product line. At considerable time and expense we have completely retooled our product line and would like to offer you a replacement fro...
