Loom Restoration #1: We got a loom

05-15-2019 02:54 AM by northerngardens | 0 comments »

Hello all, I am new to Lumberjocks and I am posting the first in the video series I am making on YouTube. To-date I have complete three of the videos and am currently working on the fourth. Hopefully to uploaded in a week or so. This is a project my wife inspired me to complete. She wants to make rugs like her grandmother and we were given a very old and beat up Union Loom. I am enjoying taking it apart and cleaning it up. Join me on this journey. I am new to YouTube and video making...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #11: A home for my Stanley 45 Irons

03-11-2019 11:56 AM by Bill Berklich | 0 comments »

When we last saw our hero… (oops wrong story). Well still no substantive progress on the tool cabinet – waylaid by surgery/recovery and weather. Unheated garage is not conducive to cutting/fitting/gluing/finishing at 10F. I do need to get busy soon ‘cuz the house is going up for sale in a couple more weeks and packing has already started. But that is a another story. I have managed a few smaller projects over the past month or so on warmer days and with the heater going...

Stanley 45 Combo Plane Overhaul #6: In the home stretch :-)

01-31-2019 03:12 PM by HokieKen | 26 comments »

I had a little bit of cleanup left to do. I put a couple of coats of Tru-Oil on the knob and tote. I also had the cam rest from CL810 that I hadn’t cleaned up yet. Before. After. Then there was the slitter which I hadn’t payed any attention to yet. I cleaned it up on some wet dry paper to remove some surface corrosion. It was pretty dull so out came the diamond plates. I quickly realized there was a lot of work to do on that little sucker and that it wasn’t a...

Stanley 45 Combo Plane Overhaul #4: New Tote and Knob

01-28-2019 02:36 PM by HokieKen | 20 comments »

I didn’t have a lot of time to spend with the #45 this weekend but I did carve out a couple of hours to make a new tote and handle :-) The original handle broke on me when I tried to drill out the pins that held it on. It was dry and cracked anyway so I would probably have replaced it regardless. And I just didn’t like the original knob at all. It’s just a ball: I did the tote first. There is a web in the cast body that the tote has to hug and flanges at top and bott...

Stanley 45 Combo Plane Overhaul #1: A new pretty :-)

01-23-2019 08:58 PM by HokieKen | 10 comments »

Recently I decided it would be beneficial to have a rabbet plane in the shop. I don’t generally buy tools unless I know they’ll get used. I’ve had several times recently I’ve had to set up the router table or a dado stack in the table saw to cut a single rabbet and thought “there has to be a more efficient way”. So I had almost settled on buying a rabbet plane but then decided to poke my head into the Stanley #45 thread here on Lumberjocks and see if may...

Hand Tool Finds #1: Introduction and Luck at an Antique Store

12-27-2018 01:25 PM by Beats85 | 3 comments »

Long time lurker, first time poster here. A little over a year ago I enlisted the help of my brother in-law to make a jewelry box for my daughter. I have been a tinkerer for a long time but that was my first serious wood working project. I got bit by the woodworking bug hard and have been learning and doing as much as I can since. Partly out of space constraints, but also because of the appeal of the “old ways” I’ve decided for now to be a completely hand tool woodworker. One day I’d lik...

Found a handsaw at local antique shop. I was surprised at how good of condition it was in. For this restoration I decided to try sandblasting the hardware and was surprised at how well it turned out. See the results in the video! Make sure to hit that subscribe button. View on YouTube

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #9: A little clean up goes a long way

08-07-2018 02:43 PM by PoohBaah | 11 comments »

I had a little extra vacation time build up and decided to make it a long weekend. Vacation though it was not. I went and borrowed a friend’s dump trailer and went at cleaning the old hay loft out. There was old hay and straw that mice had chewed threw the twine all over the place up stairs and I knew that I wanted to get rid of it before the new siding was in place. Well it took 3 full loads of the dump trailer that is roughly 8’x14×3’. And man I was a tired pup af...
