Looking for tools - 1 reply

Hey fellow LJ’s, I am searching for folks on here who may have some old hand/power tools that they no longer need or want. Older or newer, but prefer older because of quality and the fact that I like to restore and put things back to use. Looking for but not limited to hand planes, band saws, scroll saws, etc. I would cover shipping as we...

Sargent plane - 34 replies

Just picked up a Sargent 408 plane today for 8 bucks. From what I can tell based on the trademark stamp on the iron, it appears to be a Type 3. Anyone know much about these? Decent quality? Also is this similar to a Stanley 4? Its actually in great shape besides the heavy rusting. Obviously it will need lots of tuning and sharpening.

Plane ID Help - 16 replies

I picked this Stanley No. 4 up from the antique mall for 20 bucks. I’ve just about got it all clean (was very rusty and dirty). Anyway, I think this is either a Type 16 or 19. Can anyone help based on the pic provided below? Thanks!

Old tools - 11 replies

I’m getting rather intrigued by the idea of getting older, rusty tools that people don’t use anymore and restoring them both for my collection and use. As we all know, there are a ton of these laying around in people’s garages, barns, sheds, etc. What is the best place to find these kinds of things online? I’ve looked on ...

Table saw won't turn on.. - 32 replies

So I just got done replacing the dinosaur era blade on my old 1 HP compact table saw (Black and Decker, 8 inch) with a new freud. Pulled it to give it a test, and it wouldn’t come on. It had the issue of not coming on a couple times a while back, but hitting the little reset button seemed to cure it. Any ideas on what might be wrong with i...

Got first hand plane today - 58 replies

I got this at a local used tool shop today for 18 bucks. Stanley No. 4. Just needed some WD-40 and elbow grease to free up the turning knob and everything else. Have it broken down and parts sitting in rust remover right now. I actually used it a little and it shaved better than I thought it would. I am looking for some advice on sharpening ...

Hot off the press cedar! - 16 replies

Just picked these up this morning! I ended up with 6 2” thick slabs and 16 1” thick slabs. Just wanted to post since it’s the first thing I’ve very gotten sawn up from my property.

Gun cabinet plans anyone? - 15 replies

So, I haven’t posted in a little while but I still visit every day and read up on a lot of things. I’m still very new to everything, and have had some changes with work and whatnot, so haven’t had a whole lot of time lately. However, my life is about to be simplified a bit (thank goodness), so I am ready to take on some project...

Really need a planer.. - 37 replies

I’m really looking hard for a planer and would appreciate any advice. I’ve seen a couple decent deals on CL but wasn’t able to jump on them in time. Anywhere else to look? If anyone has one they’d like to part with I would gladly pay shipping for a decent one. Would like to keep it under 200 bucks. Maybe I can get a new g...

Cedar log furniture - 20 replies

Does anyone work with cedar logs? I have a bunch that have been cut in the past few months along with some dry logs, and am struggling a little with them. I used a sharp knife to debark them which leaves some nicks. (I will be getting a drawknife this weekend.) Anyway, I used a belt sander with 80 grit and I’m not too happy with how some o...

Hand planes - 22 replies

I’m looking for a decent hand plane. Something I can use, not just pretty to look at. I’m still new to all this and don’t really know what all the numbers represent (#4, 5, etc.). What would be a good one to look for to do everyday planing on a variety of hardnesses?

Wood type? - 60 replies

Can anyone take a guess at what kind of wood this is? Dug them out of one of my barns. I would guess they are at least 30-40 years old. 2×8’s.

Band saw help... - 50 replies

So I’m using this bandsaw and I’m noticing that the blade wants to pull one way really bad. I know they have a tendency to do this but this seems extreme. Seems like the blade is loose? Or do you think maybe I need a new (sharper) blade?

Found this Router... - 36 replies

Was rumaging through my dads shop which isn’t used anymore and found this router. Can anyone tell me anything about it and whether it’s useful for edging and whatnot? Or is it so outdated that I would be better just getting a new one?

More walnut questions.. - 28 replies

So I marked over a dozen walnuts in a section of my property yesterday. Most averaged about 16 inches across. Many didn’t have a limb until more than 20 feet up. Next week, I’m going to start taking some to the mill. I think I want to just saw them live edge right now. Probably 2 inches thick and 8 feet long. I don’t want to ma...

Walnut tree - 82 replies

I know this is one of those questions you probably get on here quite often but being a newbie, maybe you’ll have some mercy on me! I’ve been walking around quite a bit on my land lately scouting out some trees. This walnut is about 34” diameter, and as you can see pretty thick all the way up. Is this as valuable a tree as I...
