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.

Interesting old chisel - 6 replies

It has the D.R.Barton 1832 stamp on it.From what I’ve read, that’s the year he went into business, not the year it was made. Total length is 16”. Blade length 12”. 1/2” thick x almost 3/4” ( 0.725 in) wide I don’t understand the ridges at the edges...

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...
