Mitre Box, a rehab story #3: New wheel, still soaking

New wheel was installed, and put to work.. PITA to change out. Plastic tub for parts was brought down to the shop.. got the stock rests all cleaned up, and shiny…which left two pointy screws to do.. Called stock holders, they have a pointy end, that will grip a board into place, while you saw away..Into the tub these go. The 2 catches from the tops of the guide assemblies, are cleaned up, and re-installed, they also have a patent date stamped into them “10-5-09”...

For the many of you out there that are always on the hunt for great hand tool buys at a Flea Market this one is for you.

The old time woodshop journals #10: 3 dollars, 3 classic braces

It was a humid mid morning…...I mean so humid that most of the outside auction tables were packing things up to head back home from all the uncomforable temperatures and lack of sales. As soon as we exited the truck my Father and I felt as if we were going into a suana, the small breezes were even warm….not the best weather for an energy filled pick…lol A few tables up on the left there were two very beat down and rusty braces on a table of assorted junk, I picked them up...

Hey gang hope your weekend was enjoyable. It was a rather humid and….crowded day in these parts of NJ…LOL. But I was happy to get back home from the traffic way back in the woods and on route to my shop to fire up the wire wheel, WD-40 and spirit of better times and clean some nice auction finds for the tool tote! Let’s take a look at some of the pics! Pic 1-2: Found this very cool Disston keyhole saw in an old tool box at the auction this weekend….it was o...
