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...

Flea market find and a question - 8 replies
Stanley No. 12 veneer scraper I could not just walk past. But, it needs a blade. I suspect I will pay more for the blade than the tool. Some say to make a blade from an old saw, the metal will have the thickness to flex properly. Others ( replacement blade sellers) say a thicker blade will cut better because it won’t flex. Al...

Can anyone ID this old handsaw? - 1 reply
I got this last year, also there was 2 Disston D-23's, and a D-4. Craigslist has been good to me. They all are in good usable condition. I’m not sure of the wood. It looks a lot like the apple wood shown on the others. The blade is 12” x 2 and 5/8”. One side is 10 TPI, the other is 12 TPI, with alternating high and l...

Now I’m seeing more than 1 person using the same name.What’s next? I’m not naming names, it’s not about that. Most places I’ve logg...

I replied on a forum topic. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/24031 Now, when someone else replies, I get an e-mail from lumberjocks notifier. That’s a clever way to get me to shut up, it will work. I hope it’s an error.
