    How to Clean Hand Planes Sure, you can soak your "new" woodie into a bucket of boiled linseed oil, but that won't get the gunk, grime, and paint splatter off of it. Check out this video to see how to clean your wooden planes while also get that fluid deep in the body. Check out the video on...

    Keeping Aerosol Spray Can Heads Clean I've been experimenting with different spray toners lately, and I like to use cans pf pre-cat lacquer from Mohawk for small, quick tasks. The old invert the can and spray until clear method of keeping the spray head from clogging is pretty wasteful - not...

    I recently purchased a Craftsman 306.23377 Jointer Planer Molder on Craig's List for $60 - it works, but is definitely in need of some TLC. Rusty surfaces, bone dry chain, etc. I've never fixed up an old machine before, and though i'm sure it needs grease and oil, i'm not sure which goes where...

    ... no really… how do you do it? I purchased a DP off CL today. I'm running the table through electrolysis to remove the miinor surface rust. There's also some minor surface rust on the chuck. While I'm setup, is it wise to submerge a drill chuck in water?

    My shop is also my garage and my storage for way too much stuff. Every nook and cranny is packed with something. Even with a dust collector I still have shavings and sawdust everywhere, and sweeping just can't reach some spots. So occasionally I grab the old Toro electric leaf blower, a full...

    Hello! I am pretty new to the woodworking scene and so I need some advice from you guys. I was given a drill press and a sanding station that has a wheel and belt sander. Very exciting for someone with a $2 budget for tools! :-) They both look great except they sat in the guys outbuilding for...

    Not a big fan of Rachel Ray - but here is a video she has on Youtube about cleaning a cutting board. Looks like to works - but have never used the salt trick. What do you all think?

    Due to a recent injury I plan doing an all-out cleaning on all my large power tools over the next couple months. Cleaning and waxing the work surfaces is pretty straight forward and I've been doing it for years. However, several of the tools are new to me and have a layer of dust, dirt, grime...

    I've had my tools stored for a few years. They were not stored very well though … and they were in my old shop (garage) that did not have any dust collection in it. So, now that I'm trying to get my new garage shop up and running, I'm looking at a bunch of very dirty tools. I've removed all...

    Hello Everyone, I've just come into possession of an Emco WoodworkerKS80 table saw and could really do with some tips and guidance on getting it up and running as it should. I'm a novice woodworker and have never owned or used a table saw before, so it's a bit daunting! The table saw in...

    20+ years ago the BORG opened its first store in the area, about 40 miles or so from us. they had a HUGE pile of plastic crates, I bought 2 or 3 that were 12×18 x 12 or there a bouts. they turned out so handy I wanted a bunch more. when we went back they no longer had crates. the only thing I...

    I acquired a Rigid 2424 table saw today. Overall, this is a great saw with the wheeled lift system and a really solid fence - a good craigslist find. The only problem is the slight rust layer that has developed on the cast iron top. None looks deep, no pitting, but I want to clean it down to a...

    As I was working on the chop for the leg vise in my workbench, my hands (palms) got all black. At first, I thought it was from the foam pads on the Rockler clamps. it was a hot day and I was sweating, so I thought maybe some of it rubbed off on me. but these usually come off with soap and...
