Vintage tools, Vintage me?

02-08-2021 04:27 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

I’m just musing here… nothing earth shattering. I always look around on Craigslist, in the ‘tool’ category, just in case there’s something there I could use that is a steal. I’ve made a few i.e. an almost new Dewalt 788 scroll saw for $75. And it wasn’t hot! For a long time I’ve noticed that a lot of people have ‘vintage’ tools for sale. Some of them are priced at an old tool that you might want price. Some of them are priced a...

REHAB UPDATE: SETTING UP SHOP #3: delayed start but happy to wait

11-28-2020 08:46 PM by garethmontreal | 0 comments »

I won’t be wiring the shop up for a few more weeks. I just found out my friend is going for his 53 foot truck license and his test is in three weeks. He was still up for wiring this weekend but I insisted we wait till he’s finished his test and to focus on getting as much practice time as he could before the test. I found a good lathe for a price I coud afford finally I picked it last night. It a 36” delta double duty that came with a disc sander attachment, a few turni...

Tool Restorations #1: 10 dollar Stanley No. S5

10-11-2020 12:05 AM by Macksimist | 0 comments »

So, went to a garage sale the other day, gentleman had some woodworking tools. What was really nice about this guy was that he was just trying to get rid of stuff. I restore antiques on the side and do woodworking, so I tend to lean towards tools a lot, most of which I end up keeping and just using myself. So anyways, I couldn’t read the models on anything, but for ten bucks a plane, figured why not.’s getting there. :D And done finally!

Project: Woodshop #1: Picking it up again, finally

08-13-2020 04:36 AM by Nate Finch | 1 comment »

I moved into this house a decade ago, plus a few weeks. It has a 3 car garage, so naturally the third bay was storage, but I wanted it to become a woodshop. I picked up random tools off craigslist and friends, lucked into quite a lot of ash from a fallen tree, and then… my second and third kids were born and my time went poof. Well, evidently the pandemic has stirred something up. My wife wanted to build a pocket-hole & 2×4 lofted bed for middle child, so we started cleanin...

Moravian Workbench #12: Tool Storage

06-20-2020 01:26 PM by Tom | 0 comments »

Although this Moravian workbench is meant to be portable so it can go to a job site, it also can serve as a dedicated workbench in your shop. It is incredibly sturdy and the splayed out legs really resist racking. I plan to use mine as a dedicated shop workbench, although, I may take it to a job site if I am helping friends and family with a special carpentry project. So I made the drawer and shelf so as to be removable to maintain the portability. I am partial to keeping a set of tools...

Norris A5 Restoration

12-05-2019 11:35 PM by Brit | 21 comments »

After looking for many years and losing many auctions, I finally won a Norris A5 smoother for a reasonable price. I knew it needed a lot of work, but at least it looked doable. It turned out to be a rollercoaster ride with a number of heart-stopping moments. Here are the seller’s pics (not the clearest photos) so you can see what I started out with. Once I hade it in my possession, the first thing I did was clean the wood with 0000 steel wool and Liber...
