Part 1: got to go

04-23-2020 03:09 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

The old saw til, that is… After building an enclosed Plane Til, and a tool cabinet….this dusty thing just won’t do, anymore. Any saw I take out of this thing, would need wiped down, before I could even use the saw….not to mention the spiders needing to move. So, thinking of building an enclosed saw til. One where the saws sit safely inside their own space, without dust, dirt, or spiders…Went out and bought a couple sticks of 1×10 x 6’ Pine. h...

Part 2: A Top, a bottom, a holder

04-23-2020 03:37 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Sounds simple enough? Hmmm, 1×10 x 6’ plank #2 was then hauled to the shop….it had….issues.. First off, way to “wavy”..... Most of it was centered down near one end.. I could cut right about here….and get rid of most of the trouble makes….same down on the other end…which left about 42” in the middle….which was then cut into 20” long blanks. Then clamped the two blanks together,...So they would behave, for a fe...

04-25-2020 03:05 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Having other “Issues” going on last couple days….was finally able to get a little shop time in….about 2-1/2 hours worth. Went out and bought a 2’ x 4’ sheet of 1/4” Pine plywood…and a new bandsaw blade… Got out the case with the “Special” planes… Yes, there is supposed to be 3 planes in here…later on, there will be just one….The Wards #78 was out and about.. Set up to plow a 1/2” wide rebate a...

Part 4: 2 more corners, last rebate, and other things

04-26-2020 02:34 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Seems I packed about 2 days of work into just a single day…even had a Lunch Break….had bout 5 hours total shop time, today. Kind of worn out. Corner #2 was next on the list…so Dovetail 101? Layout tools…I do pins first, so Mark the pin layouts on the end of the board…making sure which way the half pins are to go…then use than combo square to run the cut lines around Board is up this high, so I can look straight down the square while running t...

Part 5: last corner, and a late nite in the shop...

Ok, last corner…aka Corner #3…worked on the pins first, again…got those done….Craig needed some 80-20 parts cut to length….found out the carbide tipped tablesaw blade worked just long as a wood backer was used…last corner tended to chip out…with the wood sitting there, no chipping. Then cleaned everything…..lots of “silver” specks all over the place…. Back to the tails… Stood the Pin Board straight up, la...

Part 6: Clamps came off, moved into new spot..

Those extra clamps I added the other “morning”.... Were removed yesterday afternoon…along with all the rest of them…then sit the case over on the bench… Test drive.. Fits! Remove the saw, lay the case down on it’s front face….bead of glue run around the rebates and across the holders, and lay the plywood panel in place..with an assist from a hammer…and some nails… Only markings on that hammer…says it is a Champion brand&...

Part 7: a door for the til, part 1

05-01-2020 02:15 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

A 3 hour shop time, yesterday. Cut a wedge shaped side, to match the one already cut. Then clamp the two together, and joint the sawn edges so they are the same.. Jointer being the Stanley No. 6 Then set these two aside. Next, rip the parts needed to build a frame around a plywood panel. 1-3/4” wide…joint the saw marks smooth. Then set up the cleaned up Stanley #45 with a #14 cutter.. Because it matched the thickness of the plywood panel. Clamp a stile or rai...

Part 8: a door for the til, part 2

05-04-2020 03:51 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Not getting as much shoptime, right now…other things keep getting in the way. Needed a top and bottom for the door, once the door was out of the clamps. They needed to go between the side pieces I cut out, earlier. Needed a square cut, and cut to fit Swung this back to 90 degrees. The bottom was just a 1×1…the top was a 1×4. The 1×4 needed a bevel, to match the sides…..we have ways.. Stanley No. 12-004, Made in England…aka No. 4c. made...

Part 9: Door for the til, part 3

05-05-2020 05:11 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, discovered I had glued the frame/collar to the wrong face of the door….not a biggie…I can make a picture frame and cover the problem. First stick. I also reinforced most of the glue joints with screws, sitting in counter-bores. Big red circle is one of 2 blow-outs from hitting knots in the grooves.. Worked my way around. Bought two 8’ sections of Chair Rail molding…Glue and nails to install.. Mitersaw in use? Stanley #358. I had a strip of thi...
