Mitre Box, a rehab story #3: New wheel, still soaking

08-05-2019 11:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

New wheel was installed, and put to work.. PITA to change out. Plastic tub for parts was brought down to the shop.. got the stock rests all cleaned up, and shiny…which left two pointy screws to do.. Called stock holders, they have a pointy end, that will grip a board into place, while you saw away..Into the tub these go. The 2 catches from the tops of the guide assemblies, are cleaned up, and re-installed, they also have a patent date stamped into them “10-5-09”...

Death by a thousand cuts: the demise of a favorite tool

06-15-2019 10:53 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

.Okay, yes this a weird post on a woodworking forum. But I swear I use this tool a lot in the shop, not that much on wood, but with wood, Cutting metal things to put on wood, cutting that difficult nail/screw that won’t pull out without damaging things. And I admit doing a lot of cutting of metal when I weld.. some of it incorporated in woodworking projects. All in all my grinder is one of the tools I don’t use all the time but when I do need it it saves a lot of work. Toda...

Part 1: Tear apart, clean up, and sand prime and start paint on shell

01-25-2019 02:21 PM by Brandon | 1 comment »

I found this old Manning Bowman 4 1/2” bench grinder on Facebook marketplace. Guy was asking $30, we made a deal for $20. I really like the looks of it, and it works, and it’s small, so it wont take up much real estate in the shop. Right after I picked it up, I swung by old reliable HF for some parts and such. I picked up a new grinding wheel, a 6” (all they had) polishing wheel that I’m gonna have to cut down to 4 1/2” and a “sander base?” looking thing that I thought...

Grinder and Beltsander Setup Gauges

02-14-2018 06:59 AM by Kelly | 3 comments »

When you sharpen your own chisels and wood turning knives, you’ll find it necessary to set your grinder or sander support table to different angles for different tools. Of course, you’ll find it necessary to repeat the previously set angle, to avoid removing valuable steel from the tools, and to get consistent cuts. Setting up a tool rest of a grinder or belt sander to grind a specific angle presents a challenge because you can’t use triangle templates (see first photo), angl...

Robert Sorby ProEdge look alike

03-23-2016 09:29 PM by Dutchy | 13 comments »

A couple of years ago I bought my lathe. From time to time I use him as a lathe (mostly he is used as a disksander) and in particular for cylinders. For making the cylinders I use TC tools with changeable knives. I also have a couple of HSS turning tools. Till now I could not sharpen them as I would like. I like the Robert Sorby ProEdge, but with a price of more than Euro 600 too expensive for me. So last week I decided to give it a try to build my own and for me it was successful. Started...

Shop Remodel #8: It's Monday, Back to the Ole Grind.

12-01-2015 12:41 AM by bearkatwood | 14 comments »

It’s Monday and it’s back to the ole grind I go. This is another blog in my ongoing series to remodel my shop and make a saw till, drill press cabinet, tool cabinet, plane till and workbench. I have been woodworking for 16+ years and have always done my work in dark, dusty caves on anything that would resemble a bench. I have finally decided to spoil myself and go hog wild doing it. I wanted to bring you all along as I made these pieces as it will be a very epic build. I have ...

File Chisel Build #1: Part 1: The shaping and grinding

06-20-2015 08:03 PM by Sanderguy777 | 0 comments »

This is my first try at this blog thing so any advice is welcome. I’m sorry for the lack of pics but I thought of posting this after I cut the file. Anyway, I needed a wide chisel and I had a file that was oversized so I chopped it up and started grinding away…. This is the part that I will use on this project. After I had cut it, I thought that I should have measured so that the finished product would span a 2×4. So if you do this, remember to measure…. This i...

My shop #3: Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools?

02-08-2015 03:34 PM by Dutchy | 10 comments »

Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools? It,s up to you. For the small machines I have thought making flipover stands, but on one stand I could put two, maybe three, machines on it. After thinking and trying I came to a solution and put five machines on a small bench. I can use all five without a lot of change. Overvieuw: Drawers for drills and so on: Drill table hanging on the left side: Drill press with mounted table: On the back a flexible drilling shaft and also p...
