Advice on restoring tote and knob - 20 replies

The tote and knob pictured here came off of a type 14 or 15 No 5-1/4 I’m working on. I’ve done lots of research across many older LJ posts about restoration techniques. Where I’m getting tripped up is if I need to take these all the way down to bear wood or not. If they were in terrible shape there is a ton of info on how to...

New (to me) Band Saw - 6 replies

I don’t know much about band saws and this is my first. Saving room in the budget for a new table saw so went used on Craigslist. Anyway this is a Craftsman 12” I picked up today for $160.

Bench Dog (hole) placement - 27 replies

I’m trying to finish up my first bench…aka Mighty Mouse. I’ve read quite a bit on bench dogs, hold downs and vises. I have a rather small shop space so this thing is only 49” x 22”. Because of its short size and limited space I only incorporated a side vise. Anyway I’m wondering if there is anything I migh...

Mystery scraper blade - 7 replies

I’ve been doing some much needed spring cleaning of my small shop space and decided why not buy a couple more planes I don’t have so I can figure out where they will live when I put everything back. So I picked up a Stanley No 12 and No 112. I don’t need both but got a good deal for picking up the pair. Anyway I can’...
