Aimed at those new to saw sharpening, this instructional video is 2 1/4 hours long and covers the theory, the tools and the practice of sharpening western saws. You get to look over my shoulder as I sharpen four saws – two backsaws and two hand saws. I’ll explain the saw sharpening process and how you apply it to different scenarios. I really hope you find it useful. As to the production quality, I’ve done the best I could. I had to record it outside, so there is a bi...

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #1: The Big Announcement; And a Bit About The Tools.

08-11-2011 05:54 AM by RGtools | 19 comments »

Recently I was contacted by MsDebbie to instruct a class on hand work (a big “thank you” to you and the person…you know who you are…who recommended me for the task). The focus is to be on someone who is getting into hand work or just starting and wants to use hand tools only. The whole point was to focus on the basic skills of calorie burning woodwork, quality and efficiency. I plan to start the class in late October which should help students scramble for tools if nee...

Potato cannon carriage #3: Trail, ramrod and major assembly

08-08-2010 07:12 AM by JJohnston | 8 comments »

We made a lot of progress today. Most of the painting is done, so we could concentrate on assembly. Here’s the lower trunnion assembly with the hanger studs and knobs complete. The potato projectiles are muzzle-loaded, so they have to be pushed down toward the combustion chamber with a ramrod. The ramrod will ride in a tube above the barrel, both to simulate the “recuperator cylinder” on the real thing, and because it’s so long, there’s no other place to put it. ...

Yankee trouble (bits and pieces…)Or when you have to pay 45$ for to little, and are to stubborn to do so! Yes I had the choice to pay 45$ including shipping for Europe, for a bitholder to my Yankees, or buy a set of different bits from england for 28 Pound – this was the closest to madness since I own several other more modern screwdrivers, but…Yes I like old tools, and love to have a beautiful or special tool in my hands, and since I am the owner of tree Yankee screwdriv...

Let's Build a Drill Press Table

08-01-2010 07:29 PM by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

The drill press is a terrific tool in the woodworking shop especially when it has a drill press table that conveniently clamps the work, provides a fence for repeatable and accurate cuts, and also offers a safer working environment. The drill press was originally set up for metal working and most tables that come with the drill press are small metal tables. As a result, the metal tables can be rather awkward for use in the woodworking shop. A better solution for the woodworker is to buy...

Drill press table

01-03-2010 09:21 PM by Stevinmarin | 16 comments »

I really don’t know why most drill presses come with those little round tables. A few years ago I found a design for a great drill press table with a proper sliding fence. It’s really easy to make, and you really need one. If you want to make this design even simpler, leave out the replacible inserts feature. Steve
