  1. I get Tom Fidgen's Newsletter in my inbox and I always look forward to it. Tom is a hand made by hand tool guy, long story short, great stuff, beautiful work, I have been following him for along time. In the most recent newsletter he is advertising his new Two Handled Rasps, these are beautiful tools, I want them, I gotta have them, don't know how yet, but some day I'll have them in my shop. These tools just make sense, with their two handles, stitched rasp, these are made for accurate stock removal. I have no horse in the game here, I just love beautiful tools is all. Here they are. Just thought I'd share them.
  2. Squares?

    I seem to have a few of the squares in use...some big, some tiny... Maybe Moody can suggest a name for some of these....the HUGE one in the back IS a Stanley...10" of steel blade. The rest? The "Three Diamonds" square was from my dad's tool box. This little fellow is a Swanson 6" combo. Just to show how big some of these are. Been using a few of these in the Chest Of Drawers project.. So...any guesses about who made what? Rosewood,Brass, and Steel Co.?
  3. It's done!

    This thing is finally done and packed for shipment. The walnut and brass elongated ovals on the doors are to cover my goof. Attached hinges on the wrong side. I kinda like them so, I made two more as escutcheons for my door pulls. A better shot of the pulls The drawer sides are grooved for wooden glides. The blue stuff is on swiveling wings. Those are earring do-hickies. The drawers are lined with the same stuff.
  4. Got a packet of corner brackets. Needed to make a few pilot holes for the #1 screws.. All kinds of toys in the background. Screws are TINY.. And, since the electric screwdriver doesn't have a charged up battery, I had to use this old Stanley... Made a "chain" out of hook & eyes.. Hmmm, maybe a better look? Hooks have been trimmed down, and rebent a bit. Used the old pair of pliers from my days of tying rebar for a living. Top hook swings down, into the same eyelet as the next hook below it. The others just have their own eyelet to use. Have sanded to first coat back a bit, and need a new brush. The more "redder" Witch's Brew will be a top coat. Knee is sore from mowing the yard yesterday, so I think I will just sit a spell today.
  5. $1 Hand saw all cleaned up

    Awhile back, picked a Butcher's saw for a dollar bill.....finally got around to rehabbing it up... The bolts were, at one time, nickle plated.....shined up, they became Brass. Guess the plating wasn't all that good? The slots weren't all wallered out, was hard to find a screwdriver skinny enough. Handle has been sanded back to bare wood, then a coat of my Famous ( or, Infamous) Witch's Brew was applied. Frame was wire wheeled back to shiny. Wing nut was removed, cleaned up, and oiled the threads. Out in front,I am not sure if this is a pin, a broken off thumbscrew, or a broken bolt. No way too remove, or the sawblade. Saw cuts with a drift to the left.. Guess I won't use it as a rip saw....not really sure WHAT I'll do with it, at the moment. I doubt IF I can cut up some pork chops with it.
  6. Back view

    From the album Box for a Stanley 45

    Back side, showing the brass hinges. Went and added slotted head screws, instead of phillips ones.
  7. Patriot Picking - Plumb Bob

    Last week I ran across this nice looking old plumb bob in a leather holder. It was at an auction and has a price tag on it of $100.00. I didn't pay the 100.00 and I love the auction! This is a "Globe 14" made in the USA by Eugene Dietzgen Company of Chicago. It has a steel tip that can be changed. It is brass and has a very nice patina. The Case is made by Keuffel & Esser Company. I like the leather case but I don't believe it is the case that originally went with this plumb bob. The case probably dates to around the 1950's or 1960's. Still a nice case and protects the plumb bob. This is considered a rare version because of the shape or so I have read.. Well It is still ready to be used, but will likely retire to the display cabinet. More Patriot Picking coming soon!
  8. cane
