Nifty, useful measuring tool

Nifty, useful measuring tool

10-02-2013 07:32 PM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

Got an email about the rule stop and decided to take chance on it. I thought the price was a bit high, but the ability to use my existing rulers of different lengths was a real plus. It ways that the Rule-Stop-1 is for rulers up to 1” wide, but it appears to me like it would work for up to 1.5” wide. http://www.woodpeck.com/rulestop1.html My thoughts:1) It is really handy for repeated measurements or just to precisely set a stop and them mark using the end of the ruler. ...

I wanted handsaw sharpening experience, and I got more (sharpening experience) than I expected

I wanted handsaw sharpening experience, and I got more (sharpening experience) than I expected

02-25-2014 08:40 PM by paxorion | 2 comments »

This past summer, I had to repair some molding along the exterior of a bay window. Given that it was a very small number of molding cuts to repair, I opted to get a plastic miter box and backsaw to do the work rather than pull out a power miter saw. I saw it not so much as an additional expense, but rather a chance to get some handsaw sharpening experience. My criteria was to find a cheap handsaw that I wouldn’t feel bad ruining by experimenting with sharpening. After playing with a few...

Seems I am always lookng for a nut or bolt for a peice of geat in my shop.Without taking a spare with me to the nut shop I am usually stubbed out with a replacement that’s eighr too big or too small.Now all I have this to fill in the blanks for size and thread.

Excellent Saw On a budget

Excellent Saw On a budget

12-30-2014 07:11 PM by edwood1975 | 11 comments »

Well what can I say, my wife bought me this saw for Christmas and she did an awesome job. I really like the size of the saw 10” is just what I need, also the Laser Trac system is extremely helpful.It came with a 10” 40tooth saw blade that does a great job, but if you are planning on doing detailed finished work I would get another blade. I built a mitre saw cart and all in all I couldn’t be happier./!

Ray Iles plane irons

Ray Iles plane irons

Ray Iles plane irons Really wonderful irons, thicker than standard app 3mm (left) instead of the normal 2mm (right).I choose the O1 carbon steel hardened to RC59-61, this is easy to touch up. Comes in a protection pack and blade end are dipped in wax.Before using it, I gave it a hone, this because I like to be able to compare with what I usually do. Since it’s thicker you might have to move the frog or open the mouth a wee bit on you plane. I have been using the iro...

Jeff Miller writes a solid instructional manual for woodworkers

Jeff Miller writes a solid instructional manual for woodworkers

08-02-2013 11:04 PM by jusfine | 6 comments »

This is the first Popular Woodworking book that I have really found entertaining. Some of the previous ones I have read have been quite elementary and didn’t offer much substance. ”Woodworking with Body, Mind and Senses”, this book is a good addition to your library. Jeff Miller provides some basics in the first few chapters so the understanding of working wood fibers is clear, then moves on to sharpening tools, techniques, safety, jigs, tool use, etc. then brings it a...

A little anarchy might be good for the soul

A little anarchy might be good for the soul

09-14-2011 06:21 PM by Tomcat1066 | 17 comments »

Christopher Schwarz’s The Anarchists Tool Chest sounded, based on some reviews, to be a bit of a mixed bag. Many folks have compared it to other works, to varying degrees. My honest impression is that there really isn’t a book out there for the hand tool crowd. Schwarz’s work is a default go-to manual for the neophyte hand tool user, whether they’re new to woodworking or just new to hand tools. The first question anyone asks is “what do I need?” Inva...

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

01-15-2013 04:13 AM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

I was on the fence between 3 and 4 stars. I ultimately went with four because, in the end, the saw meets my needs and expectations. But it took a bit of work to get it there I work out of a one-car garage which I share with lawn care tools and my kids bikes, scooter, etc. Oh, and there is also a snap-on rollbox and a motorcycle in there somewhere too :) That said, I have to get creative with how I store my woodworking stuff which includes five floor machines, workbench, etc. Granted, m...

I don’t have a single new power tool in my shop. I have inherited quite a collection and what I don’t have i like to buy from craigslist / ebay. This means that I do a lot of cleaning up and rust removing. So far I have bought a ridged contractor table saw circa 2000 a delta homecraft jointer circa 1950. As you can Imagine they didn’t run so smooth at first. The table saw had been rusting in an aircraft hanger for a few years and had a light coating of rust on everything....
