Saw Talk #29: Holtzapffel Saw File Handle Dimensions

08-08-2013 10:51 PM by Brit | 17 comments »

Just a quick post for you guys out there with a lathe. Since posting my saw sharpening video in Saw Talk #28, I’ve had a few enquiries about the saw file handles I use. I get them from an online retailer here in the UK and as far as I know they aren’t available anywhere else. That means that if you don’t live in the UK, shipping can be a bit prohibitive. So here are the dimensions (in millimetres I’m afraid) for anyone who is handy with a lathe. They are are a ̵...

Jigs #1: Dancing the Cribbage Board Jig!

10-06-2012 11:05 PM by EWJSMITH | 4 comments »

Hi all, I was recently inspired to build some cribbage boards after seeing some really nice samples on this site as well as elsewhere on the web (and after taking up the game again and losing regularly to my wife :-). We currently use a crib board that I must have built almost 20 years ago using a scrap piece of pine door jamb, a felt tip sharpie pen for numbering and a drill press. But now that I have more experience at building ‘stuff’, I’d like to make some nice boards from some nice wo...

Old gems #2: mortice chisels (pig sticker)

06-28-2013 12:52 PM by Gibernak | 6 comments »

A month ago I bought these chisels for about 10 dollars. I didn’t really know what it was before I began investigating. I began by checking the names of chisels 3 of them are stamped “Ward” 5 of them are mortise chisels, the old pig sticker kind, but the handles were in bad condition. They were worm-eaten and split so I decided to replace them and they were quite rusty. So I put them in some water with citric acid And made new handels This is how t...

V8 Degree wedge powered workbench #7: Installing the Leg Vice and Finishing up.

09-09-2012 11:30 PM by shipwright | 17 comments »

The leg vice is so simple as to be self explanatory and its installation likewise, to the point that you can install it and uninstall it in less than a minute. This is nice on those occasions when you don’t want a vice in the way of your work table. For the above reasons I will keep the descriptions short and just show you some detail photos. This one is the fully operational vice. This one shows the assembly removed from the bench. You can see the mortise for the wedge has be...

French Cleat Wall Storage System

11-18-2009 07:59 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 28 comments »

A French cleat is as ingenious as it is simple. It involves securing a strip of wood with a 45 degree bevel to the wall, and then securing an opposing beveled strip on the back of a cabinet or anything you want to hang. Its incredibly strong and versatile. Its a great way to hang cabinetry and as you’ll see in this video, it can be used to make an awesome modular wall storage unit.

PCB270TS Table Saw Extension Wing (laminate)

12-27-2012 01:42 AM by JSB | 3 comments »

I have a list of “to do” items for the shop that seems to be getting longer daily. One of which is to make some extension wings for my table saw. Eventually they will be used as router tables. I decided I wouldn’t cut any holes in the tops until I made up my mind for what to put in them. So lets walk through making a wing real quick for this saw. First thing is finding materials. While visiting the in-laws during Christmas I was able to snag a few boards out of the loft o...
