Lately, everytime I go to the garage whether it be to get something, or work on something I tend to always come back with bruised/scratched shins. The garage is a somewhat of a mine field. It never really started as a workshop, so tools and machines just accumulated as they came with no order or planning and each one made it more and more stuffy and cramped. My wife just asked me ‘why don’t you take everything out and reorganize the place’.... hmm.. that means spending...
These are all tools that came from my great grandfather, I’m a fourth generation woodworker and when my great grandpa died a lot of his tools got spread out between my grandpa, my dad, my uncle and me. Some pieces also “disappeared” I’m awfully curious about some of the things I ended up with. A lot of the big things like the lathe are self-explanatory but I’m very curious about the history of these items, many of them are unmarked or minimally marked so it’...
Here are photos of the tools i have thus far. Any advice on what to get please help me out, keeping in mind i only use human-powered hand tools. I plan to get more planes, files, rasps, a coping saw, a cabinet scraper, a drawknife, a spokeshave, a bevel, and a crosscut saw. If you know how to make any of these i’d appreciate the help because making the tools is a top priority, second is buying them. If i left any tools that i have out it’s probly something small like bits and, suc...
This is a blog entry that I am using to collect information on sharpening. I will be updating this information periodically as I come across additional information. Please feel free to contribute information if you desire. Sharpening Books The Complete Guide to Sharpening by Leonard Lee – Covers sharpening of tools in general. I own this book. Taunton's COMPLETE ILLUSTRATED guide to SHARPENING by Thomas Lie-Nielsen – I have looked at this book a number of times and wi...
Since I cannot at this moment show my workshop as I am in search of a space, even though I have bought the machines and still in boxes. What I can do is to show the photos of my machines, some of the tools & accessories, don’t have photos for everything. <div></div>
Yesterday, I took every tool that was in my main tool chest out of the box and cleaned and vacuumed out the box. While I was at it I laid my tools out on the work bench and cleaned and inspected them and took some of the bigger Stanley planes apart one at a time and cleaned all the parts. The iron in three of the planes needed sharpening so I did that before I reassembled them. I then put a few of the tools and put them in other drawers instead and put some other tools with these because this...
I was out in my garage the other day and went to start a project. Reaching into my toolbox and retrieving a hand plane the first thing I noticed was that it was rusting. Agian! I had just cleaned the rust off of all my planes a little over a month ago and already they were showing signs of new rust. There is nothing more frustrating than spending my free time cleaning rust off of my tools over and over again. I need to find a better way to protect my tools. I already keep them stored in a ...
Just playing around in the shop and came accross these planes. I made them a couple years ago, and really enjoyed it. Nothing too fancy, and the basic plans came from a book on making hand planes. They are a pleasure to use as the shavings come peeling through the throat opening. That nice whoosh sound that only planes make, and shavings thin enough to read through! And a polished surface that’s left behind. So much satisfaction in using them, knowing you made them. ...
Everyone’s going to hate me for this, but I just fell – not literally – into a lot of new Robert Sorby turning tools. The 18th (3 days ago) was my 32 birthday (for you programmers, that’s 100000 in binary – I no longer fit in 5 bits!). Mom sent me a box of Rockler goodies from my wishlist. In typical (for my mom) fashion, she overdid the gift-giving. She’s always been very supportive of my endeavors. Thanks, mom! I’ll have to make her several nice thi...
