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...

I had some trouble with folks changing avatars, but I can handle that. I’ve been seeing where some are changing their names, but retaining the rest of the profile.OK, fair enough. 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.

I love walnut - 14 replies
A few months back , a friend gave me 3 big firewood size pieces of walnut. It wasn’t in real good shape, a lot of rot, but I did get some usable lathe stock. A few days ago he asked if I wanted more. That’s like asking a drowning man if he wants a life jacket. His father has a large walnut tree that they are taking down. These ...

Workbench blues - 25 replies
I need a way to hold work pieces to my bench top. It has a face vise, but no end vise. I’ve been considering this Veritas surface vise, or this Veritas wonder dog. I think I’ll have to lose at least 1 drawer to install an end vise. Any ideas? Thanks!
