dw- Plane notes from the field #2: Brands other than Stanley Bailey and some information I have found.

These are in no particular order, just as I’ve entered then. This is what I believe to be my opinion in most cases, but often taken from some other source. Use the information as such. Miller Falls – One of my favorite – equal with Stanley.http://oldtoolheaven.com/ Record Ritter (NH) Buck Bros. (sold by Home Depot) Capewell (logo may be from Capewell Horse Nail Company (1904)) (Hartford CT) about 1950’s. The Consolidated Tool Works is recorded as having don...

Wooden Planes #3: The Mouse

04-13-2014 06:07 AM by Mark Kornell | 10 comments »

I wanted plane #3 to be another block plane, but I wanted it to be a different kind of block. By this point, I’d done a lot of reading about planes in general and plane-making, and some of it was starting to sink in. Low angle, bevel-up planes sounded like a good thing because of the versatility, so I hit on the idea of making one from wood. The Internet is a wonderful resource for finding information on just about any conceivable topic. Usually, there is too much information, re...

09-21-2010 09:14 PM by mafe | 45 comments »

How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39236 I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...

Wing Boxes- A mini Tutorial

10-07-2012 05:44 PM by Andy | 18 comments »

I dont have time to write a lengthy tutorial but I do have a few photos and will write a word or two to help you get started. This style of box was first made by me using plans from the October 1997 American Woodworker and authored by Dave Freedman. I made a rectangle box about 12” long x 5 1/2” wide x 2 1/2” tall.I used miters for all the corners instead of butt joints as he shows. Nothing wrong with butt joints, they are what I used in the “Palm boxes ” t...

Hand Tool Journey #40: Stanley SW #358 Miter Box Restoration #6... Assembly! Long Winded and A Ton of Pics..

(Inhales deeply) OK, lets get this going. Warning up front to anyone NOT curious about how one of these goes together you might want to scroll a bit to get to the money shots otherwise hang in there we have a bit to go over first. First things first here are what I typically use in any tool restoration during assembly. Nearly all of these deal with corrosion prevention in some form or another and that folks is the name of the game from this point on. We just spent a lot of sweat equi...

Easy Tail Vise

06-09-2014 09:27 PM by Texcaster | 11 comments »

This is an easy alternative to the complex trad tail vise. It’s not quite as versatile as the trad vise but much more useful than the wagon wheel with the single dog hole and no end of bench clamping. trad vise http://lumberjocks.com/projects/92062 This bench was built in 1981 only as a stop gap. I was on a working / surfing holiday in Australia and soon became very busy. I went native and it was 10 years before I visited the U.S. again. Along the way I built trad benchs for o...

Going Galoot #5: I came, I saw . . . . . .

03-28-2014 02:14 AM by JayT | 16 comments »

Shop’s Log: March 27, 2014 Part of going galoot involves finding quality hand tools. While there are now some manufacturers making high quality hand tools (Lie-Nielsen or Lee Valley/Veritas, for instance) there are also a tremendous amount of vintage tools that make great users if you are willing to put in a little work. I have refurbished squares, adjustable bevels and a ton of hand planes, but was now ready to move on to another vital tool for the galoot ….... hand saws. ...
