Fastner & Small Parts Storage

06-05-2011 06:46 AM by Woodwrecker | 13 comments »

Hi everyone. I was trying to figure out a way to store some of my fasteners and small parts which lead me to construct this. Take some Dollar Store baking pans, some scrap wood, and a little routing, sanding & painting and problem solved. I then use my label maker to identify what is in each pan. I’m still sorting things out, but so far it’s worked great. You can take the one you need to your work area and bring it back when you’re done. I don’t think it&#...

Machinist Toolbox #3: Carcass parts ready for some groovin'

12-12-2010 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, wasn’t too cold, and the sky was blue (today is cloudy and rainy). I was fortunate enough to be able to use the day for some woodworking. I am at the point where I usually run into trouble. I have a tendency to want to work on the joinery and the problem is that I usually do that before I have all the parts ready leaving me with some parts that go together, but still require work to get the rest of it as well. This time around I decided to get all ...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #24: Mobile Parts Cart

02-21-2010 09:59 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

During the construction of a project there is often a need for organizing and storing parts. This is obvously a temporary need because as the work progresses, you construct parts and then assemble them. I like to use a 4’ scaffold as a mobile cart to store and organize the parts that I have made. I bought my scaffold for $99 although I have noticed that the price has risen on them over the last couple of years. It comes with steel platform shelves to stand on and I used plywoo...

Tool Tote Restoration- Distressed Paint Job

09-11-2017 10:22 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 7 comments »

I got a chest that I am planning on turning into a hand plane chest. It already has a place for the handsaws on the lid. Inside the chest was an old tool tote or parts tote. It was in rough condition, but I decided to try and save it anyway. Let me know what you think. Hit that subscribe button.

Jigs #1: Templates and Jigs

07-23-2007 12:36 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 16 comments »

Templates and Jigs Whenever we do a project that has the potential to be built again, or if the design is somewhat difficult, we’ll spend the time to build a jig. This is a process that pays back big dividends, and has been practiced for hundreds of years. In the first instance, it makes sense to speed up the process of duplicating it. This prevents you from having to record all the dimensions and engineering that went into the piece. A very big time saver. In the second ...

Stevens 311 restoration #2: Resource gathering

04-09-2008 07:14 PM by plaidflannelman | 1 comment »

I will be writing this in sort of walkthrough form; so I will include my resources as they come. I am getting parts from Numrich Arms and the direct page for this gun is here. They have a passable exploded diagram on that page but the one I use comes out of the Gun Digest diagrams book. Same diagram for the most part, though. I have basic tools for the project but when working with firearms, fine or otherwise, I would recommend a good set of gunsmith screwdrivers and punches. These and a...

Gatorade bottles

12-03-2009 08:09 PM by PASs | 5 comments »

I used to do the baby food and mayo jars with the lids nailed under the shelf thing.But after I joined the Navy I had to go more mobile.I started putting my screws and nails into Gatorade bottles.The nice thing is I can put a piece of bailing wire around the neck with a loop on it and hang it on a pegboard.Since the bottle is clear I can see at a glance what’s in it.Right now I don’t have a pegboard wall, but the filing cabinets (another blog entry) work pretty good for keeping th...

Rust-hunting serendipity—A year of searching turns up “Precious” parts

04-12-2014 02:10 PM by Brad | 8 comments »

About a year ago, I “restored a Goodell Manufacturing Co. miterbox”: http://lumberjocks.com/planepassion/blog/34755 . It was lacking both of its accessories when I originally bought it. A slide post to facilitate crown moulding cuts, and a length gauge slide. It was also missing a slide retention clip and a thumbscrew. That nagged at me. So much so that I made a clip and bought a jig thumbscrew to secure it. I also started making wooden prototypes of the slides. That ...
