Working with antler - 8 replies
I have a whitetail deer antler that I want to use in a jewelry stand. This is my first time with antler. I will use the complete antler. I have some questions. Do I apply a finish to the antler? I think it might get scratched off in normal use of holding rings, bracelets, watches and necklaces. My plan is to insert a dowel into the antler ...

Another what the heck is it? - 12 replies
I picked these up at the flea market, $15 for the pair. The Bailey #6 looks like it should clean up pretty good. I’m not sure what the other is. I think it would work good in a shooting board. It weighs 9 lbs 11.4 oz. and 15” long. I would have Popeye arms after using it for a while. These are the only marks. Let me know what you ...

Router table blues - 15 replies
I have a cast iron router table top that serves as a wing on my tablesaw. I got it from craigslist. The owner was a machinist working in a well equipped shop. He made the plate that the router attaches to, and did a very good job of it. It is a good fit, leveling screws are part of the table and not the top. The plate is not attached to the t...

In search of the wild burl - 5 replies
Since the trees lost their leaves, I have been looking for burls. Not to harvest, just to look at. I haven’t seen one yet. Every where I go, I’m burl hunting. I scan the big trees first before looking at the younger trees. At one time I burned wood for heat.( Don’t shoot! I’ve seen the error of my ways.) Of all the tr...

Bandsaw dust collection blues - 4 replies
I’d like to say it sucks, but it doesn’t. I wish it did. My problem is NOT my dust collector, it’s the way this bandsaw is set up to collect dust. It’s a Jet JWBS-14CS, with a riser. It’s a craigslist find from 2 years ago. That connector is too small for a shop vac hose, but I did get an adapter to 4” from...

Drawknife rehab - 9 replies
3 and 1/2” blade length. All it needed was a little love. New handles and some filing and honing and it’s back in the game. I’m liking it! The new handles are different than the old. The originals were drilled through with the tang curled over to hold it on. The new ones are like file handles, step drilled and pressed on.

Proper drill speed question - 11 replies
I’m attempting to make a thin parting tool. Thanks, Capt. Eddie! I have encountered my first design change opportunity. The hole in the handle is my problem. My original plan was to use 3/16” brass rod to pin the handle on, similar to a knife handle. Instead of laminating handle grips to the tool blade, I cut a mortise in...
