Scrap Bin Refugees #4: Corners 2 and 3

03-04-2022 05:48 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got about an hours worth of work in the shop….Re-did the #2 corner.. Triple checked to make sure the pins were indeed facing the correct direction… Chopped about halfway down on the show side..mainly to stop any blowouts from chopping from the Inside face.. As with Corner #1, I used the coping saw like a rasp, to clean out the corners…and level to the baseline..used these pins, once I was happy with how they looked, to lay out the tails… This time, a bandsa...

Vintage English Marking/Mortise/Combination/Cutting Gauges

09-20-2021 10:54 PM by Brit | 23 comments »

Recently I restored a vintage 6” mortise gauge by I. Sorby and posted some photos of it on the ‘Measuring and Marking Tools of Your Dreams’ thread. I mentioned that I had to replace the spurs (points) on it and was asked how I went about it. Since this procedure can vary from gauge to gauge, I decided to write a blog post showing some of these old English gauges. We’re talking late 19th century to mid 20th century. I’ll start with some general information and terminology, ...

How to dimension lumber with handtools #1: Tools

09-10-2018 01:38 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

I started a new video series tonight on how to dimension lumber using only hand tools. I am currently woking on building a treadle lathe and have been busy dimensioning all the components for the project. The tools I am currently using are the Stanley Sweetheart #4, Stanley #62 low angle jack plane, Stanley Bailey #7, A square, Stanley marking knife, Wood river marking gauge and 3 foot long measuring stick. It is a little slow but a good work-out. My shaving pile his about a foot tall now. ...

Making a Multi-purpose tool - 4 in 1

04-22-2017 10:16 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 8 comments »

Hello everyone ! Here, a marking and routing system concept.I made with hand tools, this multipurpose tool, with the abilities to act as a router, a marking gauge, a scratch stock and a beam compass.I chose to build interchangeable bits, with a modular design using hexagonal double nuts and Allen wrenches, considering that in the future they could also be used in another type of tool. I invite you to watch the video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhPPbvxth18 some screenshots here: ...

I guess I’m just not going to find the time to write posts, so how about I share a video I posted on my “MrToolHunter” Youtube Channel. In this video I share my most-used lay-out tool, the IncraGauge, and take a quick look at Woodcraft’s new WoodRiver Offset Gauge.http://youtu.be/vdxetoT3kVM

Flea Market Finds

11-30-2014 07:40 PM by bit101 | 0 comments »

Super happy with today’s goodies: 1. A Marples knife blade marking gauge. $7 2. Drawknife of unknown origin. $5 3. H. Wells moving filletster plane. $10 Head over heals about the plane. I’ve been scouring eBay and other sources for one just like this. Overall it’s in really good shape. Took it apart, cleaned it up and oiled the depth stop screw. I’ll need to sharpen the blade later. It’s got a small crack in the fence, which I just glued up and sh...

Marking Gauge #3: some progress

08-01-2014 05:19 PM by harum | 0 comments »

Haven’t had much time lately for my marking gauge: our neighbor pulled out of her garage on her SUV without … opening the garage door. Fixing the door has taken more than I thought it would. Epoxied brass wear strip, the fence and put in the threaded insert. Instead of the suggested 3/8” hole for the insert I had to make it a bit wider than 7/16”—the rosewood’s really hard. Found a brass bolt to be sacrificed for two shoes. The knurled scr...

Marking Gauge #2: wear strips

07-24-2014 08:14 PM by harum | 0 comments »

Cut and sanded the strips to the right width, and cleaned the exposed sides with grit 320 sand paper. Have to find a piece of 5/16” brass rod or a couple of bolts for the shoes and come up with a way to cut a thin slit through the beam to hold cutter blades. This slit will be at the bottom of a hole at one of the ends of the beam.
