How I rescued my Portable Drill Press

02-01-2019 11:01 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 13 comments »

Boys and Girls, One of the best drills I owned in the past was this Triton drill. However, it goes back to the days when men weren’t pansies and had the fortitude of lifting up a heavy cordless drill in one hand. While every time I picked it up, I got a better workout than competing in a triathlon, the battery started to develop an inferiority complex… Though after 12 or so years I’m not surprised, it’d be cheaper to send the missus of for a boob job (both of them) rather tha...

Momi-Giri #2: Yotsume-kiri (four sided) bit

05-26-2018 08:49 PM by aerialcopper | 0 comments »

Here is a simple method for making a “yotsume-kiri”, a gimlet bit for bamboo/wooden nails. For this gimlet, I wanted to use the fewest tools possible. You can see my method for making the handle here. I used annealed 1/8” square 1095 steel key stock which cost $1.08 from McMaster Carr. Any medium or high carbon steel will make a nice bit: O1, W1, A2, 4142 all seem to be available and economical in small sizes. Even mild steel (nails, spokes, etc) would probably be fine fo...

Momi-Giri #1: Illustration and Introduction

05-21-2018 07:49 AM by aerialcopper | 1 comment »

Hello everyone! I am a new member to lumberjocks, despite having browsed often since 2011 when Roy Underhill inspired me to start woodworking with hand tools in my dorm room at the time… I filled out my profile page if you enjoy walls of text or want to know what I’m doing here now. In short, I’m focused on illustration and design with the intent to spread knowledge about hand tools. There is a lot of traditional hand tool knowledge that bears repeating, yet a lot has...

Hand tools #3: Brace Storage

03-07-2017 03:43 AM by CFrye | 40 comments »

I built a temporary till for the braces (Note: does not include the egg beaters or the breast drills). I counted 15 at the beginning of the build and made it able to hold 17. While loading it this evening I realized there are 2 MIA!It ain’t pretty, but they’re all together…well, they will be, when I find the wanderers. Used some left over siding. Drilled holes and cut the slots on the scroll saw. Filed the rough edges and put on a coat of Black Cherry stain followed by an ap...

I have just upgraded my old variable speed drill press to a Nova Voyager. I shall try to give an unabashed summary of the machine; however, at $2,400 (Aus.) I may be a tad biased with a tendency to justify my extravagance. The drill press installed,There is one prerequisite to owning a Nova Voyager drill press. You need a wife with expensive taste in shoes, dresses and handbags (most of us have one of those)… and a good supply of vino. Then all you need to do is prime yourself with ple...
