Thought I’d try this tool gloat as a blog entry. i’ve had the Powermatic 3520b for a few months now (gotta blog that.) When I first got it the two old Craftsman lathes had to go away ‘cause there weren’t no room in the inn for three lathes.So I put them under tarps in the driveway and Craig’s listed them to new homes. I knew when I got the 3520 that there was only one place in the garage for it…under the 14 inch I beam that runs from the front to t...

This book is a great book. It is almost like a dictionary for handtools. The pictures are very detailed. You can look up almost any handtools and figure information out from how to use it to how to care for the tool. If you are just getting into hand tools I recommend getting a reference book. This is a great choice. If the video below will not play click here. for the video book review.
Well, here’s my first hand plane restore. Like something out of a woodworking mag, a buddy sent me a picture message of plane. He found this plane in the rafters of his garage was just checking if I wanted it before he threw it into his scrap pile. Of course I told him, “I’ll be right over.” It is Bailey No. 8. According to Rexmill.com, it would be around a type 10. I decided to restore it Rexmill style. It was mostly surface rust, but the more I cleaned it, ...
Restore a hand plane getting all that rust and gunk off.
I said I needed to get more organized in 2013. I start out by making a simple shelf to hold my paints.
My shop changes like the wind. Anywho, heres my shop as of yesterday :)
