Restoration of an Infill Plane

09-29-2017 02:28 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube I had gotten this plane off of ebay initially. The seller is actually selling her father’s antique collection, sadly he passed away at a young age from cancer and has left her his collection. I decided to restore the plane and give her a little video of it so she could see what was being done with the tool. I didn’t want this tool to just sit on a shelf so I decided to give it a proper repair and put it to work. The blade is a bit narrow for the body but that&...

Basket Weave Pattern #1: How to do it

09-27-2017 11:13 AM by toolfooldan | 6 comments »

Basket Weave Pattern Technique Adapted from the book “High Relief Wood Carving” by William J Schnute. Layout a grid of squares. Each side of the grid equal to the width of the carving gouge you’ll use. In this instance, the gouge is 5/16mm. Each side is therefore 16mm, or about 5/8”. Since I’m more imperial than metric, I used 5/8. Close enough. Each side of each grid square will get a stop cut with the 5/16 gouge. Mark orientation lines. It’s real easy to make mista...

Bandsaw tension quick release addition

08-19-2017 06:18 PM by Oldtool | 1 comment »

I am currently in between projects and seeking something to do in the shop, so I decided to install a bandsaw tension release lever. My bandsaw is an Hatachi model CB13F, 12 inch saw that was also sold by Sears with the Craftsman model number 137.224320. Not interested in starting from scratch, I looked around the internet and found two possibly easy adaptable solutions by Grizzly; a lever device and a (as they call it) clutch device. I decided the easiest one to try would be the clutch re...

Lock Miter Router Bit Setup

08-09-2017 06:36 PM by Rich | 23 comments »

There was some discussion about lock miter bits on Rick M’s Deals thread. I didn’t want to muck up his thread with off-topic conversation, so I am tossing this out there for anyone who is not certain about setting up lock miter bits. First, a diagram (the numbers shown are for the Infinity Lock Miter Jr. Router Bit item #55-502). Note that the markings are for reference only and, particularly in the case of the fence location, don’t precisely represent the actual set up....

Five Projects to Help Kids Learn the Craft of Nailing

07-25-2017 11:09 PM by Jack McKee | 2 comments »

Looking back at the first year I taught woodworking my main mistakes were making projects too difficult and assuming kids could use tools, at least a little. Wrong. Most kids had never picked up a tool, and the ones who had really didn’t know how to use them. Nailing is a perfect example. Kids emphasize pounding, which is not surprising. They don’t pay attention to where the nails go. There was never a thought to drilling a pilot hole first (how would they know) and when they tried to nail ...
