Shop Tools #10: DeWalt 925 Radial Arm Saw

10-23-2007 05:43 AM by WayneC | 30 comments »

I have been resisting buying a Radial Arm Saw (RAS) for at least the last year. I have a great Sliding Compound Miter Saw, Router, and Table Saw. The only operation that seemed to be quick with a RAS that I could not easily do with the tools I have is making cross cuts using a dado set. Last week Blake posted a project where he did a wonderful job restoring a 1959 DeWalt Radial Arm Saw. I really loved the job he did. Sunday afternoon I was browsing Craigslist and saw an ad for a saw si...

Hmmm? Requesting Inspiration for Antique Wagon Wheels.

10-10-2007 01:30 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 17 comments »

This week I came up with this axle and wheels from an old antique wagon. I have another set of wheels I found previously, but they don’t match this new set. I am just scratching my head about what to do with them. I know they are good for something, and something really cool, I just don’t know what yet. Last Spring, I was trying to figure out how to do a backdrop set for a Cowboy VBS program, and the jocks sure came to my aide. So, I thought, “why not ask the lumb...

Tools #2: CS Osborne draw gauge/leather slitter (OLD)

09-04-2012 04:07 AM by GlennsGrandson | 2 comments »

I just picked one of these up at a garage sale for $2 not knowing what it was. (and got a lot of other great buys too!)It says C.S. OSBORNE & co. NEWARK, N.J. From what I’ve read it is indeed a leather cutter, aka draw gauge (http://www.csosborne.com/no51.5.htm). Mine has black japaning on the handle and the blade says C.S. OSBORNE & CO HARRISON N.J. The blade must have been a replacement. On the opposite side of the measurements is it stamped MADE IN U.S.A., it’s stamp...

Old Clamps #4: Old Wooden C-Clamps

06-01-2013 10:29 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

These are a few examples of old clamps I found on a popular auction site. Until I got into woodworking I didn’t know that C-Clamps could be made out of wood. These two antique examples look very much like those made by at least two YouTubers I’m familiar with. Something worth trying. Notice the brace inside the throat.

My Journey #2: New Toy!

09-16-2010 07:21 PM by Trimble | 8 comments »

Wow, so much can change in just 24 hours. (yeah, i’m going to pretend I wrote this last night hehehe) So, yesterday, I was slaving over a hot sheet of sand paper trying to lap the plastic parts of the fence on my newly gifted router table, in hopes of being able to use it as a mini jointer to make at least some little flat boards… Well, today, I spent a little time looking at Craig’s list for Charlotte NC, and found an add for “Millwork tool” including a ...
