bandsaw mobile base #1: -grizzly g0513x2bf

03-13-2019 01:11 AM by pneufab | 2 comments »

Thanks to my loving wife, I’m finally getting a bandsaw! After a little research I landed on the grizzly g0513×2bf. I was planning on ordering the base for a reasonable $75 or so, but before I added that to my cart, I checked my material and had just enough 2×3 angle iron around to make a base. A few cheap casters and some salvaged plate and another base is born. I have about $25 into this one. If you have any questions, let me know. Thanks for looking.

“Roman” saw

08-10-2018 08:44 PM by Dave Rutan | 15 comments »

I started making this about a year ago, but just finished it this week. It is my version of a Roman Empire era hand saw. I made the blade from flat steel from the hardware store and cut the teeth with a triangular file. The handle is maple treated with flame and the ferrule is copper with a brass rivet. I finished it with linseed oil. I’m amazed at how well it cuts. It’s very aggressive. I rusted the blade to give it an ancient artifact look.

Sharpening Jig

01-28-2016 04:03 PM by yuridichesky | 11 comments »

After I completed my recent project – mini plane – I realized that the iron of this little plane was too small to sharpen it comfortably. I sharpen my edges free-hand, and this iron is just too small to hold it while sharpening. So I came up with this simple solution: some kind of iron holder made from mild construction steel. Now it’s pretty easy to do the job: When it was done I remembered how Paul Sellers made his simple jig for sharpening spokeshaves ir...

Clearcut Chisels Restoration

08-04-2015 01:32 AM by Jorgearaujo | 8 comments »

Well it’s official I am hooked… restoring old tools is my new obsession. This time I found some old chisels, Clearcut brand, ever heard of it? Me either. I also couldn’t find much information on the brand online, I did find one post that mentioned they are from Montgomery Ward but I can’t be sure of that. No matter the steel feels good. Guess we will see if it holds an edge. I also shot a video of the restoration which can be viewed here.View on YouTube As you can ...

Making Plane Blades #1: Fabrication and Heat Treatment

07-06-2015 10:40 PM by bobasaurus | 14 comments »

For the “Shop Made Tool Swap - 2015: Hand Planes and Spokeshaves”, I decided to make two planes (one to keep, one to swap) including the blades. I started with a 1/8” thick 2.5” wide precision ground flat bar of A2 tool steel that I happened to have on hand. After some requests for more information, I decided to start this tutorial blog for making them. You can buy tool steel pretty cheap from MSC: O1: http://www.mscdirect.com/browse/tn/Raw-Materials/Flat-Stock...

Rhykenology #8: The block planes of superheroes!

01-02-2014 11:35 PM by toolmike | 3 comments »

An interesting series of block planes in which the base, and often other components are made of steel – formed using a combination of stamping press and punch press. They were touted as “indestructible”. http://workingbyhand.wordpress.com/2014/01/02/the-block-planes-of-superheroes-part-1/
