Using up Leftovers #1: Start, stop, and start again...a project delayed

07-27-2020 05:02 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Started out as just a Project for July….take what was left over from the last projects…resaw the “scraps” down into something more useful than Fire Pit Kindling… Mainly cut-offs from too long of Ash planks..had some Pine scraps, too… Resaw….Set the 1×4 x 6’ Pine aside. Set up the tablesaw to cut a kerf centered on the other boards…and ran all I could through the set up, doing all 4 edges…Tablesaw set-up…blade as hig...

A NEW, Improved Saw Til #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...

A NEW, Improved Saw Til #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...

2 drawer chest #1: A start up

02-24-2020 11:34 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Try something a little…different, this time around. First, I needed to resaw a bunch of scraps down.. Figured IF I could cut exactly down the center, I could double the wood supply…well.. Missed it by that much, Chief…Tablesaw can not reach all the way, so.. Which left.. And a tired me from the Cardio Workout…Those narrow scraps did not required any hand saw work…but, like the rest of these boards.. Required a plane to smooth things out.. Or 3...

Restoring an 1840s Conrad & Roberts Handsaw

01-18-2020 01:19 AM by summerfi | 9 comments »

Conrad & Roberts was a mid-nineteenth century hardware store at 123 N. Third St., Philadelphia. They can be found in Philadelphia directories at least as early as 1840.Based on the style of this Conrad & Roberts handsaw, and comparisons to other saws from the period, I believe it was made in the late-1840s or possibly the early 1850s. The following pictures show the saw as I received it.The plate was rusted with some shallow pitting. There is no maker’s name stamped on the plate, but ...

A Paul Sellers' Box build #1: Start up...PLANS!

01-14-2020 09:17 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Paul Sellers is doing a Masterclass project. I downloaded the plans from his site, to see IF I can build one, out of Ash. I had a stash of 4/4×6 x 54” Ash planks.. And figured one of these 8 planks might be enough…Plans? Well, it is a box with a drawer in the bottom half. Through dovetails at the corners. Drawer uses half blind ones.. And…there was even a cutting list! hauled one of the better planks to the shop… had to sit it here, as t...

Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)... #4: Which handed saw?

01-08-2020 02:23 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 4 comments »

Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas of the past (so far)…. Buying these types of handsaws with interchangeable hand grips, for different sized hand users. Stupidity was not buying the two saws or even interchangeable grips, but the same sized interchangeable hand grips on both saws. To boot, because of th...

WMC "Late Bakewell" Handsaw

01-07-2020 12:19 AM by summerfi | 1 comment »

I bought this Wheeler, Madden & Clemson (WMC) handsaw for one reason: the maker’s name stamp on the plate is different from any I’ve seen on other American saws. I have other WMC saws, but none like this one. What makes this saw different is the inclusion of the phrase “Late Bakewell & Co.” in the stamp. The full stamp reads as shown below, with WHEELER MADDEN in an arc. Additionally, WHEELER MADDEN & CLEMSON is double struck, i.e. the die stamp was struck twice with slight mov...

An Unusual Harvey W. Peace Handsaw

01-07-2019 08:13 PM by summerfi | 12 comments »

An Unusual Harvey W. Peace Handsaw I knew there was something different about this saw the moment I found it listed in the “Art” section of eBay. But it isn’t different because of the brightly colored farm scene painted on it; I’ve seen a lot of those. I could tell it was an old saw by its general shape, by the lamb’s tongue on the handle, and by the nib located near the end of the blade. The real oddity of this saw, though, is the fasteners that attach the handle to the blade. They are si...
