  1. File handle with brass ferrule

    Another file handle, this one a full inch in diameter. Bought some 1" ID brass tubing to go with my 1" diameter broom-stick. Hacksawed off a piece, bashed it around some with the 3# hand-maul, and then shined it up with the wire wheel on the bench grinder afterwards. Functional and prettier than...
  2. Sharpening Station for bench grinder.

    I've been picking away at this project for a while and finally put it to use last night. It's both a metal and woodworking project, and was a lot of fun to make. Background I bought this cheap China grinder 25 years ago at a Homier Distributor auction (think Harbor Freight crossed with a...
  3. Space Saving Lathe Tools Sharpening Station

    Since in my basement workshop space is always in issue, I devised and built this space saving lathe tool sharpening station. Six tools are revolving on three Lazy Susan platforms, giving me instant access to any of them. The important aspect is that all six tools take only 58 inches long of...
  4. Jointer stand

    Happy Holidays All, Had a few days off and therefore time to finish a project that's been on my mind. Background- I once had a ShopSmith (one of the old original models) and when I sold it I kept the jointer, as it is a really solid tool. But, it is belt driven. So it rattled around in the...
  5. My First Live-edge Project

    I was at a local sawyer who had some free wood available and i saw a good sized slab of cypress… Good sized but with a number of cracks and issues, but I saw this live edge and knew the wood had a great deal of character. I also knew that my beloved wife wanted me to replace the bench on our...
  6. Reclaimed material 2 tier endtable

    Made from an old aquarium and some pallets i've collected. ripped down, planed out, and mitered in place. sturdy 3 leg base. The stain is called Bombay Mohogany.
  7. bench grinder tool rest

    This is my first project on this forum…..and to be honest, whilst its a very quick and perhaps "rough" build…it sort of represents some of the things I really enjoy in woodworking. I'm starting to love making tools, tool jigs and the like. Whilst I have used some machinery to get through this...
  8. Bench Grinder Home

    My wife and I were out Yard Sailing when we saw an old Singer treadle machine in a much nicer table than the one we currently had. She asked me what I wanted to do with two sewing machines. Replace the sewing machine with the bench grinder was my answer. It worked out to be a great fit. I...
  9. Bubinga Side Cabinet

    This side cabinet was built for my mother. The dragonfly inlay, rain glass, hardware made from stones, and subtle curves were designed to give the cabinet an organic feel. This was the first project I've ever made with bubinga and now I'm hooked. The glue lines are practically invisible and it...

    Hi I have a few parts for a vintage/antique Delta 8" Circular Saw that I'd like to get to someone who is looking for them. The manual is available at http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=1682 The saw was made around 1929-30 and here are the parts I have: It looks like I have most...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Bought a grinder and the oneway wolvering sharpening system for my wife who likes woodturning. I got the GR450 variable speed 8 inch grinder and also decided to order the Oneway wheel balancers that have been very well reviewed. Have people been able to use the balancers with the stock wheels...
  12. Hand Tools
    A two/three part ?? I've read about one technique for sharpening shop tools where the guy recommended starting and stopping his bench grinder to sharpen chisels, etc. It lets him use his single speed grinder and catch the steel at diminishing speeds. I don't do a lot of sharpening and I wonder...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I want to add a bench grinder to my home shop. I do HAVE a Tormek, which does a fine job honing - but it's WAY to slow for actual grinding. I do plane irons and chisels, most frequently, and grinding is actually only an occasional thing with those (mostly, just hone and polish). But it does...
  14. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I just purchased the Veritas grinder tool rest to replace the abysmal tool rests on my Ryobi bench grinder. The problem is that the guards on the grinder don't actually leave enough clearance to use the tool rest at all. This picture shows the problem. The part circled in red is the problem...

    New Bench Grinder My new bench grinder came in yesterday. Having done very little research before purchasing my lathe, I hadn't realized just how expensive all the extra necessities were going to be; heck, I didn't realize how much more I would have to buy before I'd be ready to start turning...

    Cleaning, finishing the band saw stand, carpentry, and making pestles I took a look at my project lists this morning, like I do every Monday, and picked out a something that had been waiting a while. It was a carpenter project, custom exterior stair rails. I went out to my shop to take a...

    Old French grinder restore. Old French grinder restore. Hand powered vintage bench grinder restore. I fell over this sweet hand powered grinder and spend a good hour restoring it. Now it runs like a new, actually I'm quite surprised how well and easy it runs after the restore since I never...

    Part 1: Tear apart, clean up, and sand prime and start paint on shell I found this old Manning Bowman 4 1/2" bench grinder on Facebook marketplace. Guy was asking $30, we made a deal for $20. I really like the looks of it, and it works, and it's small, so it wont take up much real...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My neighbor gave me a bench grinder/belt sander combo a while back. It is from Northern Tool and is no longer offered, according to their website. My problem- the motor hums but doesn't start up. Even if I manually turn the wheel (carefully), it doesn't start up. Any suggestions? Hopefully...
