  1. Hand Tools
    Just got a No. 8 Type 9 for $34, man I am stoked. Needs plenty of TLC, lots of surface rust, paint is scraped off everywhere, knob and tote finish pretty shot, etc. But it's structurally sound and in the electrolysis bucket as I type this. Should turn out great. Only problem is the tote has a...
  2. Wood & Lumber
    A couple months ago I was picking up some scrap lumber from a local hardwood supplier and I came across two pieces of this dark looking wood, the employee told me it was also Ash that had been baked. He said that it still cuts and works like regular Ash but a little bit easier. I'm not sure...

    I think this filter is pretty well known here but if not search it, Google it, or go here http://wynnenv.com/products-page/woodworking-filter-pricing/35a274nano-cartridge-kit/ I bought the filter but decided to vent my DC outside before I actually ever used it so it's still new. Filter, lower...
  4. Hand Tools
    I've cleaned up a couple of old Stanley plane. I sanded the totes and knobs. They cleaned up nicely and the grain of the rosewood was very pretty. I rubbed it some BLO. It darkened the rosewood. Now I can't see the pretty grain. Am I doing something wrong? This is the first time I've used BLO...
  5. Woodturning
    Hello I am new to turning wood but so far I enjoy it! :) I bought an old lathe and I want to try and turn pens and smaller items. The lathe itself has a 3/4" shaft (male side) that is spun by the motor. The center pin or plate (for bowls) is attached by a set screw (female side). From what I...

Glue the dowels in place and realized this probably need a different finishing. So fellow lumber jocks any advice for me on what to put on this to finish it up right. Do...
  7. Hand Tools
    I am going to build a new workbench. It gets too cold in the winter to be in the garage to do much woodworking in the garage, and all the tools are ice cold. So I thought I would build a workbench specifically for working with hand tools in my basement, I don't want to deal with the dust from...
  8. Hand Tools
    I have a few quick questions when soaking newly sanded vintage handles in BLO. How long do you soak them? Do you thin the BLO with mineral spirits? Do you finish with poly, lacquer, shellac, paste-wax? What do you think is the best option, for saw totes/handles, chisels, screw drivers...

  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I picked up a Stanley #5 hand plane on ebay and the tote is cracked in half horizontally so that the top half is loose. Any tips on repairing this? My inclination is to pull it off and glue it back together. Is this fix that simple?
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am new to this site and fairly new to wood working. I am looking at upgrading my current Dewalt Contractor style tablesaw to something a little more robust with a larger crosscut/rip capacity. I have been looking around craigslist for some used units hoping to find a bargain. Today I just...
  12. Hand Tools
    Looking for a tool bag that will fit my dovetail and tenon saw, assorted chisels, mallet, block plane, no. 4 bailey, etc. I'm intrigued by the veto pro pac xxl but can't tell if it would have enough room. I don't want the planes and saws to bang around in the bag. I'm also considering the...
