A Spear and Jackson Mystery solved.

05-12-2022 04:52 PM by jonoseph | 3 comments »

I have an old Spear and Jackson smoother plane that had spells of working perfectly and then defying all my efforts to make it work . One problem was the depth adjuster would run into the back of the frog and the blade was still sticking out . The previous owner had the same problem as the brass adjuster was worn around the edges . If you are used to Stanley planes it remains a mystery . The solution comes when you adjust the frog which slides upwards as you move it back . Very like a Bedro...

Small Projects #59: Arduino Clock with Temp/Humidity

04-02-2022 11:34 PM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

This is another in a continuing series of weather stations. This one was built around Arduino CPU core and a scrolling red LED display. The entire unit was built with a Lexan front and rear panel and wrapped with walnut and black limba. It does other things too. It does AM/PM or 24 Hr, F or C temp, It chimes on the hour (hours can be set). It has an alarm clock with everything backed up so it doesn’t lose any setting after a power blip,. It has a “coffee pot” relay that c...

Tuning Molding Planes

03-03-2022 08:24 PM by Oldtool | 4 comments »

I’m between projects & needing something to do I decided to start back into tuning up some molding planes. I’ve collected a few molding & old wooden planes, which I put into working condition – in the hopes of using them to make my projects. I do as little as possible in this process, keeping as much of the original condition as I can, but still making them useful. I started with a Sash Plane that came missing one iron of two. Fortunately, the missing iron has a s...

Modern Woodworking Project #6: Modern Bar Stools

02-18-2022 06:59 PM by TimberBiscuit | 2 comments »

I had a ton of fun building these barstools and learned a lot along the way. A big part of this build had to do with the order of operations. And, in the end, these barstools got a lot of manual love from hand sanding and shaping—the result of that decision made for a beautifully hand-crafted look. I haven’t decided if this is the approach I would take in the future, but it works well with this design. I plan to build two additional complimentary bar stools in the near future (so stay t...
