Tools #1: Disston D8's and Warrented Superior logging saw..

775 days ago by GlennsGrandson | 0 comments »

I picked up two Disston D-8 handsaws with thumbhole at an auction today. $27.50 for about 12 saws. Two which were these Disston and one smaller one had a Warranted Superior button (not pictured). I took these three saws, filtered through the rest and a lady (the one who bid me up) bought the rest of them from me for $3 (I didn’t want the rest of the garbage). They are pretty rough shape. The one with the painted handle has a decent etching under the rust yet. From the website http://www...

Hooray, I bought a Shopsmith!

803 days ago by SaRoOl | 5 comments »

As I’ve said before, I am super new to woodworking. As in i haven’t done a woodworking specific project yet, just home improvement type things. So in my quest for tools I decided a Shopsmith would be the best bang for my buck to start out with. After watching Craigslist for a month or so I found a sweet deal on a used Shopsmith with several extra goodies. I wound up paying $675 for everything. It had a little rust, but I’ve taken care of that for the most part (still need to...

Exercises in Artisanship #17: Old fashioned tool tote Part 5 THE FINALE!!

807 days ago by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well I guess through learning and creating, sawing and shaving there were a few more hours to conjureup some additional ideas with my chisel box. Ahhh yes…a lid for the top perhaps??.....this would be a total ad lib affair with little more than just letting the inner kid out to explore and experiment. Every now and then that is such a vital important exercise to have in our woodwork…..be free of worries…the crayons going out of the lines are no artistic sin, only stressfu...

Drum/Disc Sander #2: Sander design is complete, construction has begun

810 days ago by Kevin May | 2 comments »

Two months in, progress has been made, but of course, not as fast as I would of liked. Figuring out the motors and drives has been the most difficult part of this project. I have been trying to keep the out of pocket cost as low as I could, and provide the power and control that a sander project of this magnitude needs. I had ordered a 2hp 1ph motor on ebay, but that fell through when the motor was damaged by UPS. Since then, what I stumbled upon was a motor controller that uses 220v ...

New Shop! #1: Planning & Moving

810 days ago by Ryan Haasen | 4 comments »

We are adding on to our shop! My dad and I have been talking about it for a while and have finally pulling the trigger! Our current shop is 44’ by 36’ (1,584 square feet), and every inch of that space is occupied. Here’s what it looks like right now: We will be adding 12’ to each side and 12’ on the back. It will then be 60’ wide and 56’ long (3,360 square feet). The extra 12’ on each side will be separated by a wall from the middle (large) r...

My New Tool: 15 inch Powermatic Byrd Helix Head Planer

869 days ago by Boxguy | 3 comments »

After 30 years of using my trusty Makita 400mm planer, I took the plunge and invested most of my hard-earned box profits from the past year in a new Powermatic 15 inch planer. I found that it was a good day to own a 35 horse Kabota tractor with a pallet forks since this gold beauty comes with 500 pounds of love. Quick lessons: When installing the cast iron wings. Attach the center bolt with the wing upside down and then spin it to attach the other two bolts. Put in the set screws...

Zagreb has a huge flea market in the wastelands on the edge of town out by the garbage mountain !I love flea markets, and this one is one of the best. There is all sorts of new products, from clothes to tools and everything in between, along with a second hand car market plus a massive section of second hand goods. Literally everything can be found there. I get most of my router bits there (new) and I like to get old hand tools there also. There’s also many BBQ type food and drink estab...
