Saw Making #4: Gents Saw Conversion Part 3

06-28-2016 04:03 PM by AgentTwitch | 2 comments »

As we move onto Part 3 of The Gents saw conversion tutorial, we focus on cutting the saw plate and drilling the holes for the split nuts. To help us with this endeavor, we will use Dykem Steel Blue, which is used to help make for easy and accurate layout. While the saw plate is away from the saw back, put some layout fluid on top of the plate where you plan to make cuts and drill holes. Make sure you have the teeth facing the correct direction, or you may end up with a Western s...

Hand Tool Journey #42: Stanley SW #358 Miter Box Restoration #8...Getting a handle on things..

07-21-2014 01:39 AM by Airframer | 5 comments »

Moving forward with the saw restoration.. The original tote on this saw is usable but ugly and pretty beat up so a new one is in order. TGIAG to the rescue! I have some slightly thicker than 4/4 African Mahogany on hand and it should make for a fine looking handle so why the heck not. The next few pics will be a “well duh” series for some of you but I have seen some questions asked around the forums about dimensioning wood with handplanes and I figured this was as go...

Hand Tool Journey #41: Stanley SW #358 Miter Box Restoration #7... Cleaned Up The Saw Plate.. Is This Worth Saving?

07-19-2014 10:54 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

I am going to present this question to the group. Saw restoration and sharpening is not an area I have really spent much time in yet so I am far from an expert. So I ask is this saw plate worth trying to sharpen up or should I explore other options? I WOULD like to use the original plate if it is at all usable but like I said.. I’m hoping some folks who are much more knowledgeable on the subject will help me out here. First some before pics… Post Evaporust.. ...

Making a Small Panel Saw #1: The Saw Plate

05-15-2014 05:43 PM by Mosquito | 24 comments »

I haven’t got a very large workshop, or bench. I enjoy using hand tools, and often make small rip cuts at my bench in the leg vise. I’ve wanted a small panel saw, in the 16-18” range, for a little while now. I made the decision to try making my own, and a couple of weeks ago I ordered a saw plate and hardware from Two Guys In A Garage Toolworks (www.tgiag.com). I ordered the 6-1/2” x 18” x 0.032” thk small panel/half back saw plate. My blank saw plat...

Going Galoot #6: Time to step up to the re-plate.

05-05-2014 05:33 PM by JayT | 8 comments »

Shop’s Log: May 5 2014 Having been working on some saw cleanups, modifcations, restorations and refurbs, I was finally ready to tackle a project that has been sitting in the saw till for over a year. Last March, I picked up an 8 inch Disston at an antique shop for a very reasonable amount. I thought at the time all it was going to need was cleaned up and sharpened, but alas, it was not to be. When cleaning up the plate, I found a 1/2in long crack at the toothline. I ha...

Going Galoot #5: I came, I saw . . . . . .

03-28-2014 02:14 AM by JayT | 16 comments »

Shop’s Log: March 27, 2014 Part of going galoot involves finding quality hand tools. While there are now some manufacturers making high quality hand tools (Lie-Nielsen or Lee Valley/Veritas, for instance) there are also a tremendous amount of vintage tools that make great users if you are willing to put in a little work. I have refurbished squares, adjustable bevels and a ton of hand planes, but was now ready to move on to another vital tool for the galoot ….... hand saws. ...

Saw Talk #27: The one that got away...

05-24-2013 09:33 AM by Brit | 13 comments »

I was going to save this one for later, but on the Saw, using collecting, cleaning and buying thread, Stumpynubs asked if anyone knew anything about W. H. Armitage saws. Well it just so happens that I do and here’s what I’ve managed to find out. Some time ago now I acquired a 14” brass-backed backsaw and just by looking at it, I can tell it is the oldest backsaw I own. This saw plate is very rusty and black. There are a few missing teeth and the handle is loose and...

Saw Rehab and Restoration with Matt Cianci @ Shady Lea Woodworking

01-18-2012 03:50 AM by need2boat | 7 comments »

Last weekend I was back up in RI to drop off a whelping box I build one my Aunt’s dog that’s expecting puppies soon. Normally I wouldn’t be so quick to make the trip North on the traffic infested route 95 to new England but I worked the trip around Matt Cianci (writer of the saw blog) latest class offering: Saw Rehab and Restoration at the Shady Lea workshops. Due to the broad topic Matt Started off the class by asking us, (it just so happened all of were from NJ) what we were most interes...

The Restoration of a 14" Tenon Saw #2: Cleaning the Saw Plate

11-06-2011 11:40 PM by Brit | 14 comments »

This saw plate is remarkably well preserved for its age, but it could benefit from a clean. I gathered the stuff I thought I might need, but all I used was the 3-IN-ONE degreaser foam, the Hammerite Rust Removal Gel, the green scouring pad, kitchen roll, and wet and dry paper (more than you see in the picture below). I start by spraying the plate with the degreaser. I have found that the rust remover works better on the first application if the surface has been degreased first. ...
