I’ve been posting videos on here for a long time. Starting this forum so everyone can talk, comment, share their own opinions. At least one new video a week with woodworking. Enjoy and comment.

Here is my take on a moxon vise. This thing was really easy to build, inexpensive, and will be used A LOT in the shop. Share what you have done for Moxon style vises, I’d really like to see them.

I subscribe to your YouTube channel, enjoy all the DIY you do besides woodworking, like the black smithing. I’ve always enjoyed being a DIY’er, like learning how to do things, so your videos fit the bill for me. However, I will say I have no intention of getting any goats, draw the line there.

I’ve started trying to restore some more old tools. I stepped away from the wire wheel (so i wouldn’t get beat up by the true antique tool collectors) and used this white vinegar method. Two tools restored using it and it works awesome. I believe cider vinegar works quicker. What methods do you all use?

I never knew vinegar worked for derusting. I’ve always used electrolysis.

I’m not sure I’ve come across your channel on YT before. Homesteading, woodworking and blacksmithing are all things I’m very interested in. I don’t do any blacksmithing (yet) and my “homesteading” is limited to my veggie garden and berry patch for the time being (will hopefully keep bees next year) but I get to work wood pretty often. I’ll be checking out your youtube channel.

@Tiggerwood- I’ve never tried electrolysis, but hoping to acquire some old tools by the end of the year to give it a try.

@ninjaassassin- I really enjoy thing that are “old school”. Trying to preserve the old ways and also figure out ways to become more “green” with the environment. I’m hoping to have my shop ran completely off the sunlight by the end of the year creating my own solar panels and running my own electric wiring.

That’s good stuff Tim. I like the “old school” and traditional ways of doing things, too. It’s why I’ve decided to continue working with a hand tool only approach in woodworking and why I shoot a traditional (long) bow. I’m looking forward to seeing how your solar plans work out. One day my family and I will move away from suburbia and the lessons from your adventures will be directly relevant to me. Until then, I just hope to pick up some ideas I can apply now.

Citric acid also works for derusting, you can find it where you get canning supplies at ACE hardware or the like.

@upstateNYdude- I’ll Have to check that out. Have you used it much to know whether or not it takes a while to derust tools?
