Black iron oxide for chalk line

Black iron oxide for chalk line

Black iron oxidefor the chalk line A friend told me about the use of black iron oxide for the chalk line, this has been used as pigment all the way back to my ancestors the Vikings. It is a water resistant and inexpensive product of nature. So I bought a Stanley chalk line roll and filled it up with this black iron oxide, and tested it on a piece of work that are Japanese inspired, this because they usually use the ink line, but I find that a bit messy. SO what happened?The line s...

Review of The Anarchist’s Tool ChestBy: Christopher Schwarz I have just re written the review slightly since I after reading it again could see that I could be read wrong in some passages, that they could be read like ‘personal’, I belive what is left now is not more personal than Schwarz’s choose to put us inside in his book. I never meant to harm Schwarz’s I try to review a book.(I posted a mark in the comments so you can se where the old and new comments is). Before I sta...

500workshop tips & jigsBy: Stuart Lawson ISBN-10: 1861084234 ISBN-13: 978-1861084231 When someone promises you 500 things in one book you should use your mind and say; Naaaaaaaa…I didn’t and regret that.This book have some good tips, a few jigs that are useful and so on, but it never explains well and the illustrations are not well enough made to show the full story. So sorry, I’m sad to say this book is not worth the money, but even more than I was not clever enough to figure th...

Japanese Woodworking Tools: Their Tradition, Spirit, and UseBy: Toshio Odate ISBN-10: 0941936465 ISBN-13: 978-0941936460 This book is one of the most inspiring woodworking tools books I have read.

This he do in the wonderful tone of a craftsman with a solid long apprenticeship under the wings of a master (his father) and a long lif...

The Workbench Design BookBy: Christopher Schwartz ISBN-10: 1558708405 ISBN-13: 978-1558708402 This book is really a landmark in workbench books for me. The workbench design book is a book that takes you on a tour in workbenches; we get a little historical insight, some geographical insight and the chance to see what workbenches some of the top guides of the trade are using. My personal favorite are with no doubt the 21st-century Workbench, this bench is so rock solid and well tho...

Fair priced little branding iron.

Fair priced little branding iron.

08-05-2011 04:58 PM by mafe | 20 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 ...

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.
