Another Hand Plane Rehab #4: Some Hardware Stuff

09-13-2021 01:26 PM by HokieKen | 20 comments »

Man, it’s been a while! I’ve had so little shop time lately and none of it has been unspoken for, so rehabbing this plane hasn’t been on the agenda. But, I had a couple of hours yesterday and I started to clean and straighten the shop up. The bench grinder that I use for wire brushing and buffing was sitting out and I was about to put it up. Then the little cup that was holding all the hardware for this plane caught my eye… So I figured it made sense to do a little...

Another Hand Plane Rehab #3: Look - I Used a New Body Paint

06-06-2021 05:22 PM by HokieKen | 16 comments »

Well, I said I probably wouldn’t blog about painting this one since I covered my process pretty thoroughly in this old blog entry. However, I did some things differently this time around and thought it warranted a quick entry to document. I decided to take some cues from Sansoo22's process since he does such a great job on his planes. I had planned to bake my plane the way he does but then decided against that since it’s too big for my shop oven and I didn’t want my wif...

Another Hand Plane Rehab #1: A Twisted Sole and a Crooked Frog

05-24-2021 01:56 PM by HokieKen | 31 comments »

We’re well into 2021 and I haven’t done any blog entries for the year so here we go :-) I try to force myself to do a series each year as a way of giving back to the community a little. I have been working on refreshing my recently obtained Millers Falls #24 jointer plane and it’s proving a bit of a challenge so I thought it might make a good subject. Luckily I had this thought early enough to take some pictures rather than after I was finished which is typical of me̷...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #5: About done cleaning up

04-16-2018 05:13 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And took a bit of time for a little Rust Hunting. Corner is clean and dry… Stashed the old bandsaw back in the hole…hopefully things won’t get tossed back there so much….I intend to park the router table in beside it.. Once I can get it cleaned off. May add a shelf or two under the old lathe bench.. And even clean up the top of it…. This is the new Shop Trashcan.. Has wheels to make it easier to haul upstairs….before it gets too full.. On...

Fixing Up a Couple Woodworking Chisels

02-03-2018 12:34 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I don’t usually get lucky at yard sales and flea markets when it comes to finding old woodworking tools but I recently came across a couple chisels and a gouge that needed some handles and some time at the sharpening station.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gAuP58ixbg

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #6: Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #6: Tachometer Hack from $3 Bicycle Computer

03-12-2017 06:32 PM by Pete_LJ | 0 comments »

03122017 I got the tachometer installed on the lathe and it works pretty nicely. My concept was to use a $3 Chinese bicycle computer for the tachometer. However, such computers typically measure speed primarily (sometimes cadence, bike-speak for rpm at the pedals, which is typically limited to 199). The computer that I used was purchased off ebay for less than $3. Here is a link for the bike computer(“BC”) that I used: http://www.ebay.com/itm/14-GKunctions-Cycling-Bike-Cyc...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #5: Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #5: Finishing Rough Wiring and Doing Test Cut

02-07-2017 02:14 PM by Pete_LJ | 3 comments »

02072017 I finished the rough wiring this morning. I still need to mount the potentiometer (which controls speeds), mount wires to motor more securely, put faceplate on switch/receptacle, and get wiring for light better secured . I ordered from ebay a plastic enclosure for the MC-40 motor controller (namely, the grey box in the pictures). The output from the MC-40 controller runs to the drum switch (the green switch in the pics) which controls direction of rotation. IN turn the wires f...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #4: Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #4: Getting Pullies running True and Accurate

01-16-2017 08:56 PM by Pete_LJ | 1 comment »

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you on this project. Honestly, we had a renovation on the house going on which required all my attention. Let me recap a little regarding where I was back at my last entry, hurdles, solutions and new issues. In my last entry, I had lined up the belt and pulleys by eye. Additionally, I had a custom keyway made by the local machinist whereby the 46-715’s 3mm key slot was able to mate to the keyway 5/16” (equivalent to 8mm) slot of the M...

How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #1: Breakdown and Evaluation

11-11-2016 07:03 PM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

I’ve been thinking I am going to do this blog but haven’t had just the “right” plane to document the process… until now. I know there are an abundance of these tutorials all over the internet so I don’t pretend to be breaking any new ground here. I just know we all find our own little tricks and tips so I thought I’d show y’all how I do it and hopefully, there’s a useful tidbit in here for someone. Here are some good articles from wkf...

Hand tools #2: Stanley No. 116 Mitre Box rehab-first in-depth job

10-17-2016 08:38 AM by CFrye | 25 comments »

I picked up this little mitre box at a flea market back in August for $6. It came with a Warranted Superior backsaw with a bent back/plate and possibly a replacement handle? That’s another story. Out of all the tools that I have brought home to ‘save’ I’m not sure why this one jumped to the front of the rehab line. Maybe because it didn’t need sharpened. And I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be de-valuing it with refinishing (yeah, I watched a lot of Antiqu...
