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...

Is this another new feature? - 6 replies

I replied on a forum topic. 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!

Am I the only one? - 17 replies

I am a fan of the NFL. I don’t paint my face or get stupid about it, but I do enjoy a football game. It is the only sport I pay any attention to. This season it’s all about Brett Favre. Every time I watch any show about the NFL, about half is about Favre and the remainder is about the rest of the league. It’s been like that ...

Lathe indexing chart needed - 6 replies

I’ve googled it, binged it too. I haven’t had any good results. Maybe it’s called something else? I’m looking for a chart for a 48 position indexing wheel. What I want is a chart that shows me which positions to use if I want to divide a turning into equal parts. Imagine a clock face, with 48 hours, instead of 12....
