Tools #3: Blackburn Tools Roubo Frame Saw

10-07-2017 01:18 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 2 comments »

To make thin stock, I’ve planed down boards. 1”+ to 3/8-1/2” thickness for things. So much waste! I’ve tried using a hand saw to do this, but, well, you need only do it once to recognize how hard it is. A bandsaw is the obvious solution. Two years ago, it’s what I was focused on. But as I’ve come to love hand tools I find myself unexcited about a bandsaw. Another option, I discovered, is the Roubo frame saw. Both Blackburn Tools and Bad Axe make kits. These...

The Wood Shop #1: Scoring in CT

08-16-2017 10:35 PM by dmtparker | 2 comments »

My wife & I are in CT for the week babysitting our granddaughter, Parker, as her day care is closed for the week. While we are here, I have been cruising the local Craigslist and today I scored big! First I got a Craftsman 12” tilting blade band saw that looks very interesting and is in perfect condition. Then I scored an Align-A-Rip fence to replace the crappy one on my Craftsman table saw. (Great saws, but awful fences!). That just abut completes my major shop purchases. Previous...

Handtool Basics #4: East Meets West - The Dozuki vs The Pistol Grip Back Saw

06-15-2017 03:21 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Whelp, looks like it time for another hand tool shootout, and this time it is time for a little east meets west action. Dozuki vs Pistol Grip Western Saw. I have always just kind of used both, I really find that they both have an important place in my workflow, but I took a second to figure out whats what between the two. This is really down to personal preference, and some of these opinions might just be facts about the ubiquitous Z saw and Veritas iterations of these tools. There are...

American Made #1: American Made - Episode 1 - Atlas 46 - Tactical Tool Gear

02-25-2017 09:26 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 7 comments »

The unsung heroes of the tool world here in the United States are companies that resist the pressure to offshore their manufacturing and lose control of their quality standards. Not just companies that ship a bunch of parts in to the US and stamp Made in USA on it, but products designed, sourced, and manufactured right here in the USA. Made with hardworking American Blood Sweat and Beers. This video series is going to look at some of these companies around the United States, but why not ...
