EGO Battery totes

12-15-2021 03:52 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

This doesn’t qualify as something for the projects page as it’s so simple.I made some totes for my EGO batteries. One simple, the other ridiculously simple. EGO tools area battery machines. I’ve got a lawn mower and leaf blower, but they make a bunch of other stuff. I’ll have their 2 stage snow blower next year I think. Anyway, batteries are the thing. They’re a little bulky. Not many carriers for them and if there are they are expensive. I put together a couple ...

Another Hand Plane Rehab #6: Put a Fork In It

11-22-2021 02:58 PM by HokieKen | 12 comments »

Well, a mere 6 months after starting this series, I’m finally ready to wrap it up… So let’s dive right in! When last I left off, I had finished repairing the tote. So now it was time to finish the tote and knob. The tote had been sanded back so the original film finish was removed before I did the horn repair. I just sanded it up through some higher grits stopping at 400. The knob still had the film finish so I sanded it back. I still do knobs the same basic way I d...

Another Hand Plane Rehab #5: Tote Repair

09-27-2021 01:41 PM by HokieKen | 17 comments »

I fully intended to do the tote repair and the refinishing of the tote and knob in one post but shop time has been scarce so I’m going to just go ahead and cover the repair of the broken horn on the tote and circle back with another entry when I get the finishing done. Looking at the before picture of this plane, we can see that the tote has suffered a grievous injury. So let’s do a little surgery :-) First thing I did was to use a fine belt on my belt grinder and remove ...

Tote / caddyfor the allotment kitchen. This is a tote, were made out of need in the beginning of the summer, as I were tired of bringing food from my gas fridge, into the kitchen in my wee allotment house, because I found my self running forward and backward several times.I had precut the wood and made the fingers on my jig, back in my Copenhagen workshop, so it was bought to the allotment as pieces, to spend some time in the early spring in my wee workshop there.The wood were recycled woo...

Small Projects #3: Cherry Insulin box

01-27-2020 12:33 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

As I diabetic I need vials of insulin, needles and alcohol pads to be handy at all times especially when traveling. This little cherry tote box is 3” x 3” x 7” out of resawn 1/4” stock. It holds two vials of insulin, eight syringes and a good supply of alcohol pads. I actually made this in 2016 and its held up well. My laser engraver was working then and I engraved the lid to suggest the contents. The sliding lid has what I like to call a ‘perfect’ fi...

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...

Tool Tote Restoration- Distressed Paint Job

09-11-2017 10:22 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 7 comments »

I got a chest that I am planning on turning into a hand plane chest. It already has a place for the handsaws on the lid. Inside the chest was an old tool tote or parts tote. It was in rough condition, but I decided to try and save it anyway. Let me know what you think. Hit that subscribe button.

This week in the shop: an old tool tote

06-25-2017 05:21 PM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

Last year a very dear friend died after a full life. She was a very practical lady, and after she took care of items that she wanted the family to have, she made arrangements for the rest of her possessions to be organized and set up so that her extended family could come to her house and take their pick of what was in her house, from books, to shelving, to plates to everything. Absolutely nothing was sacred and everything was supposed to go if anyone had a use for it. One of the things th...

Bench Planes #1: Wood River #4 Smoothing Plane

10-13-2016 04:48 AM by HappyHowie | 5 comments »

The other day while tuning up my Wood River smoothing bench plane I noticed that its tote (handle) was cracked. I called Woodcraft’s customer service number to see if they had a template or technical drawing in case I was forced to make a replacement. They did not have a template or a drawing. And, they did not have replacement totes for sale. I also could not find any replacement totes on the Woodcraft online store. To my surprise they mailed me a new one for no charge. Thank...
