Fair priced little branding iron.

Fair priced little branding iron.

988 days ago by mafe | 18 comments »

This is a UK seller but the price so fair that it might be worth buying even the shipment.And it comes in 220v and with an English power plug (I changed mine to a Danish plug). The burner plate with my Japanese inspired MaFe logo.You will need to make your own artwork and send it to the seller in the right file formats, no premade templates here so if you don’t know how to do this or have some one that can help you this is not the right product. Finally I got my branding iron!Do I need ...

Keep the wet stuff off the dry stuff.

Keep the wet stuff off the dry stuff.

Happen to be in the paint department of the local big box store and saw these little beauties. They will fit on all cans, pint,quart, gallon all you have to do is clip them on the inner rim of the can. I tried them on a little can of of sealcoat and it works perfectly. No spilling or finishing going down the side of the can. Cost around 99 cents.

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Received my copy of the new WoodWhisperer book, Finishing, It ain't over till it's over... by Marc Spagnuolo.. A no nonsense approach to a very important part of any project… the finishing… Marc takes a subject many of us cringe about and shows us, in his inimitable style, how to make the most of various finishing techniques… from the initial preparation to the final buff… This book does not bog us down with technical jargon and formulas but gives us a c...

Ni-Cad Battery Rebuild

Ni-Cad Battery Rebuild

1074 days ago by C_PLUS_Woodworker | 14 comments »

One of the things that really gets to me with the current trend to Lith-Ion batteries is that so many perfectly good tools are being trashed because buying a new drill with a new charger and 2 new batteries is not much more money that just buying replacement batteries. I personally just cannot chuck a perfectly good tool because of a battery issue, regardless of the price differential on a new tool. It goes against everything I am and how I feel towards tools that have served me well. Ex...

1-2-3 Block. 123 uses around the shop

1-2-3 Block. 123 uses around the shop

1127 days ago by Tedstor | 24 comments »

Want a cheap way to check the “squareness” of machine fences, table saw blades, drill press chucks, and any other 90# angle in the shop?? Check out this set of 1-2-3 blocks. I bought this pair off Amazon for $10ish bucks several months ago. Several different types of these blocks are available from different manufacturers at widely varying price points. This model, was the cheapest. However, I can’t seem to find any flaws despite the low price. I’m sure the expensive ...

Circa 1850 Try Plane

Circa 1850 Try Plane

1174 days ago by Dave | 19 comments »

I was in need of a joiner plane. I had come across this plane at a antiques shop in MS. For a grand total of $27.00. It needed a little work. The mouth was missing a chunk in front of it. On the blade is stamped [dwights french and co.]. On the nose of the plane is stamped [H. J. Nazero and co. of Milwaukee]. And all over the plane is stamped [B. F. Pfeiffer]. Doing some internet research. I can place the manufacture of the blade and the plane between 1850-60.Now with a piece of red oak. I r...

Everything one needs to know is in this book.

Everything one needs to know is in this book.

1177 days ago by travisowenfurniture | 7 comments »

After I built myself a table with no woodworking knowledge of any kind, I was fiendish to know more. I bought this book, and the course of my life changed. This book starts with the basics of how trees grow, progresses to glue types, methods of work, joinery, and all sorts of other details. Though dry at times, all the information is there. Since it was published in 1970, some of the info about woodworking machinery is out of date. The benefit of this is there is a huge attention on han...

A book about the business aspects of Furniture Making

A book about the business aspects of Furniture Making

1181 days ago by travisowenfurniture | 3 comments »

I loved this book. Though some of the specifics in this book aren’t up to date (written in 1984) and doesn’t even apply to the US (written in the UK), I found this book to be incredibly insightful and informative. Alan Peters apprenticed under Edward Barnsley, the son of one of the founders of the Arts & Crafts movement. He gives a concise history of the movement as it started in the rural countryside of Britain, catered to a public which could actually afford the work, and...
