I cut a lot of small parts in my segmented bowl making. Lots of these cuts are made at blade angles other than 0 degrees. Operating with a zero clearance insert is desirable but the variety of blade angles makes using one difficult. I would need a bunch. I use a lot of packing tape to hold small parts while gluing and the other day it occurred to me to stretch a thickness or two of the tape over the blade slot with the blade down and then lift the blade to cut through the tape and leave i...

This is some wood I got from a job that was on so valueable every scrap had to be saved for three months after it was installed I watched as it was sat unstickered in a east window rained upon, stacked upon, I saved it from the dumpster twice, kicked over and I would go over and restack it(I’m an electrician), lunch upon get this crap outta the way upon, and I would always say I’d love to have that wood I’ll get out of the way” We have to keep it it is valuable” ...

I have to say setting up a wood shop is just as much work and cash, if not more, then setting up a steel shop. Luckily a few of the steel tools are useful and will come in handy to the wood shop. I have also a few tools from a set of cedar drafting drawers I built oh, 5 years back. It was a one time thing and at the time living in an apartment, dust was every where. All I really had was a Dewalt biscuit joiner and a random orbital sander, that was it. A pic of the cedar drawers, mmmm they ...
I’ve got an old Stanley #55 I’m working on. I’ve sharpened all the moulding knives, got the manual, still looking for a couple missing parts, etc. The plane body, originally nickel plated has some rust and some of the nickel plating has been lost. I’m interested in removing the rust and re-plating it. I’m going to handle the rust through electrolysis which I know will also remove the remaining nickel plating which I’m not concerned about since I’m...
You can’t appreciate this toy unless you see it in action. I hope the link works. It’s my first ever youtube video and the first video ever shot on my iphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JclY0Ho9dC8&feature=youtu.be I started tinkering and playing with this idea a couple of years ago and just decided to take it back off the shelf. The kids might not want to put their video games down long enough to try and master this simple toy but I would set the age range from 6 ...
I know I am opening a can of worms :) A big can of fat squirmy ones :) Power tools buffs before you throw the first rock or board let me explain, and hand tool galoots don’t get too happy I still love my motorized friends (although I still am fond of hand tools ). There are points in our modern power tool shops that hand tools are just plain better one such example was the other day a friend stopped by and wanted me to chamfer some small boards for him, as I reached for my block plane h...
Well folks, 160 dowel holes later, I’m ready to call it quits. I don’t mind hard work, but repetition drives me crazy! Here is a snapshot of some of those dowel holes…Now, notice the markings on the end grain. This is important to me so that I don’t keep having to second guess myself when I am putting things together. I have those pieces marked ‘L’ or ‘R’ for left or right and numbered from top to bottom. I mark all the pieces on the right ...
