  1. Whatever poisonous garbage the Chinese are putting on Harbor frieght chisels is dangerous stuff. I smoked just a little of it off welding the bases of their 4" brick chisels. The stuff made my shop all smoky and like when one burns rubber there were weird floaties of black goo floating in the air. Then the sickness set in. My throat became terribly raw and I have sinus issues. I've never had a paint do this. I can't even guess what they used.

  3. Road Trip!

    Took a day off from the shop today.....yard sales were a bust....too nice of a day to go into the shop....Hauled the Boss, and my son off on a Road Trip... Springfield, OH has an Antique Mall.....HUGE one.....8 big rooms of stuff....Number one rule...IF a tool is INSIDE a glass case...take a look, but keep on walking. There was this one stall.....looked like someone had emptied both a Sears and a woodcraft tool section, and just piled it up on a BUNCH of shelves....Dug through over 100+ chisels....looking for a couple wood handled ones I could use.. The wide one is 1-1/4", the other is 1/4"...$6 for the biggie, $1 for the wee one... Sharp? Not even close. But, we have ways... Hoops? Not sure IF I'd hit the little one....biggie has been hit a few times too many.. For $7 and change? I think I can make do....Walked around in the place for over 2 hours, and only saw about half of the stuff. Supper was at Five Guys Burgers.....then a nice drive home.....not too bad of a day...
  4. Today's "pickings"

    First off, I am not cheap,.....merely frugal... Picked a few things today, spent about $8.50.... I have a complete Metric set of these 3/8" drive sockets. My son needed a set of SAE Deep well sockets. $5 Original price was $1.99, yard sale price was $0.50 . I will use these more to clean up any "details" a beading plane may leave. NO, I do NOT carve... Bag #1, and.. Dollar for the two of them, gave me nine hinges....only Bag#2 had screws, though...wound up with three styles, three each.. I wonder where I can use these.... Next, sitting UNDER those two bag was this thingy Did not see the chuck key anywhere...drat. A 1/4" drill bit will not fit in that chuck. marked as George A. Terry, of Buffalo, NY. More for working on MAC aircraft...might make some use out of it The Boss spent way more than I did....oh well.
  5. Narex chisels?

    Anybody use them? What's your experience? Good, bad, ugly?
  6. The Walk-about, part 2

    Not really a walk about, unless you count walking from the van, across the street and through the store...wound up spending a bit more than I planned on...$15! So, what "treasures" was inside the bag? Eight smallish chisels. The Red handles are Millers Falls ( stamped on the handles) and used to be a part of the No. 106 carving set. There are three Buck Brothers chisels, a Spear & Jackson gouge...and something by Schmidt & Co.? A "V" groover, a skew, and a fish tail....sharp as can be, and no rust ( RATS!!) Again, sharp as can be, I only had a couple spots to clean up..... The Spear & Jackson is about...1/2" wide, very shallow gouge. The other four are some form of skews. L-R big handles: Buck Brothers (3 of them) with two being octagonal in shape. Then the S&J, and then Fancy Pants. Still trying to find out about Schmidt & Co. chisels... Just under $2 a piece....and I left another 8 chisels behind....she was re-arraging the store...hard to find much the way she had things squirreled away.. Not sure IF I need to go back next Tuesday.....not too bad a day...
  7. Saw-Stop in a handsaw?

    Well, lets see, got out the Saw Vise Squad.. Ol' No. 1 was set up and used.. As this old saw needed some work on the teeth. Saw file was sent along.. As this was it's second saw, we had Back Up available.. But the file was no rookie, and came through without any problems , will get the back up file for another time Decided to at least give these usual suspects a chance to show what they could do.. 6 ppi, filed rip. Got out a 1 x 1 pine scrap, as a test.. But, it turned into a Crime Scene. Saw was hard to start, but once it did, it cut very fast....so fast that the hand that was holding the scrap steady for the start , got caught up in the action... One swipe...was enough to trigger the "Saw_Stop Sensor" Teeth were drifting to the left in the cut, still had burrs on the teeth on that side, stoned the burrs off. Should be ready to go, next time around. Decided to work on something a little safer, got out the leather strop, and the brand new Green Stick, and honed a few chisels....that way, only the strop can get cut.. So, they all should be ready to go, for the next project....I hope. Needs a new bandaid....and a beer...
  8. Curb Appeal?

    Noticed an old drawer alongside the curb, awaiting Trash Pickup Day......seemed a shame to let it go... Not much to look at....may refinish the front, shine the knobs up.... Maybe build a small case for around it? Might be something I could use it for? Laid out some tools, time to lay out some thin pieces of pine scrap. Still working on the spacing, but... The larger of the chisels in this group. The other half of the box of chisels was too long for this sort of thing, all the shorter ones did fit in, though. Just laying things out, right now. might make a second drawer for the longer chisels? Thinking some Elmers,and small nails to fix the dividers in place? May keep a lookout for more drawers out on the curb....
  9. That WIP: Drawer building

    Well, went past the Home Depot on the way home, thought I could get enough lumber for the drawers......Gold Plated Pine meant I could only get enough for three drawers. Got the lumber home, and into the shop....about wore me out. Thought I'd leave them until morning.....nope. Went back down to the shop, measured for a few crosscuts. Since I was still a bit worn out, I didn't get down a handsaw.. 6-1/2" Skil saw will work nicely. Got a front, a back, and a pair of sides cut out....had just under a foot of scrap left.....and then I went back upstairs...thinking I was done.... Got to thinking( dangerous, I know) that I had a somewhat "better" saw to cut dovetails with. Needed to "test" it out. Went back done to the shop. Laid out some dovetail pins....saw worked nicely, nice perfect, but it is sharp. Got out the chisels, thinking I could have them set up for in the morning....Nope. I went ahead and chopped the pins.....which led to the tails being marked out and done...next thing I know.. I have this sitting on my bench, the same bench I had earlier cleaned off. This is the "side" view, and the front view? Before I left for the last time, I made a few marks, to tell me which was which.. The "T" is to show which edge goes up. Usual "in" and other marks. At least I'll know where to plough a groove at....Maybe after a decent night's sleep, I can build the rest of these?
  10. DIY chisel guards

    If you're like me and keep chisels in a drawer and also buy them at yard sales, they need a chisel guard. Here's a no-cost way to do it. Get an empty water or milk bottle (1 gal HDPE plastic) Heat the side with a heat gun. After a few seconds, the plastic will turn from translucent white to clear. While still hot, plunge the chisel tip in and turn it to cover the tip. Pull it out with the plastic glob on. With a gloved hand, shape the end to cover the bezel and tip. Let cool.
  11. Walnut Night stand, leg work

    Worked for a little bit this morning, waiting on my helper to finally get up out of bed...Camera died, too. Took the van to my Mom's place, where we could work on it inside, out of the thunderstorms.....Tasks? Front and rear brake pads needed changed, tires rotated. After all of that, then come home and do a bit more wood work... That front wheel is a perfect fit. Legs are now all the same thickness, saw marks are gone, curves look better... Layout tools to mark a dovetail.... Carried a few lines done the sides, gathered a few other tools Knifeline cutter, chisels, chisel pusher....somewhere there is a #4 backsaw. Backsaw the line. Down to the other line.. Chisel away the waste. Repeat for the other side. Use this to lay out a spot on the leg Just a matter of saw the sides, and chisel out the waste. checking for fit.. Not too hateful.....repeat all those steps again for the next leg. Sometimes, things get a bit squirrelly.. Needed to add a couple pieces to help hold this thing sting. You can see the saw lines, and where I dug out an escape hole. More chop and fit, test fit, and chop some more. I also planed a "flat" where the legs will go. Finally got #2 to fit.. two down, one to go. Maybe tomorrow I can get the third one fitted? I also cut out a slat, for attaching the column to the top.. It might be a pattern for a better one, later. Right now/ I am plain tuckered out. I intend to just sit here on my foundation and have a tall glass of ice and lemonade....stay tuned..
  12. Walnut Night Stand...post work

    I suppose this should have gone over in the Turners section....but, had some wood working to do.. Snuck back down the stairs. Hmmm, there was a lathe sitting over there, last time I saw it.....a little moving around of other stuff... Well, well, lookee what I found...Even found some chisels that might go with it.. These were stashed under a pile of other..stuff. I even have room to work in there... Hmmm lathe isn't a pedal powered one? Guess I will just have to make do.. Got the blank out of the clamps, bandsawed the excess stuff off, set it up in the vise.. Tried to find center of mess, er..mass. Add-ons prevented the center finder from working....measure a few times....FINALLY was able to mark one end, and drive this thingy into the other end... Meh, it does work.....took this over to the lathe.. Hand spun to see how it turns....FOUND a cord that would reach to the lathe, did a bit of rounding work.. Trying to keep this area for the legs.....kept turning.....threw the belt tensioner off the lathe, then threw the belt.....getting a bit rough down here.. It will have a "collar" and a tenon at the top. Need to keep on turning.... Figures, I get these two pictures mixed up. Gave things a good rough sanding down. Will layout for sizes next time. Letting the lathe cool down. I even got the top out of the clamps... Maybe tomorrow, I can scrub this down a bit? Right now, there is an old-fashioned "Gulley washer going on outside.....mean the Dungeon Creek will be starting up. Might as well kick back for the evening... Might post parts of this over with the Wood Turners? Think they would mind?
  13. Mortise Chisel set

    Ok, thanks to a $2 purchase over the weekend, and a package from Okinawa, Japan...I now have the biggie chisels to ad to my set of Mortise Chisels.. The short one is a Japanese 12mm ( 1/2"?) and the longer one is a Buck Brothers 3/8" chisel Someone had ground the bevel BADLY on the BB chisel.. I haven't touched the Japanese one, no need. The BB one will take a while to regrind. needs a 25 Main bevel, with a 35 secondary at the edge. They had it at 45 degrees! Backs are different as well.. Japanese chisels tend to have a hollow , the BB is supposed to be flat.....might take a bit.. Sooo, here is my set of Mortise Chisels. Notice there is no motor attached to these. Mallet to drive them is in the background....
  14. Tractor Fest #2 tools I bought

    Well, cleaned a few up for Polite Company to view, handled a small chisel to make it usable. Lets start with these..thngs What you see here cost me about $10 today... 3/32" nail set, a 3/16" drill bit ( Craftsman!) and a counter sink bit with no name. $0.75 for these.. A pair of Millers Falls 3/4" wide chisels, one with a fully readable logo. Permaloid handles...$1 each $1 for this block plane iron, with a Stanley "triangle" logo. Might have a plane for this... How many tri squares have a level in the handle? Must be why this was $2? In the first picture, the tool with the ball on the end? Is a Stanley YANKKEE offset, ratcheting screwdriver. No. 3400, even has a patent date. Both "tips" are for slotted screws. Ok. the next one came home in two pieces. I had to fit a new handle to this 3/8" wide chisel.. I think I paid a dollar for each? This is a Buck Brothers 3/8" Mortise chisel Says so right on the back. Chisel will need a bit more work to bring it up to "Ready" status. Have started to grind a new edge, and work on the back a bit. This might take a while. Haven't done anything to the red chisels, other than give them a trip on the wire wheel...were a bit rusty. Out of the $10...I got a quarter back. Three different stops. No wonder I'm worn out. Had to walk today.....sheesh.
  15. Forward, and at one one backwards. Someday, I might just learn how to do woodworking? Morning started out...meh....got a couple things done on the lid's frame.. Bench has been beat up, lately. Needed something for the chisels to bounce off of. There is a second chisel there...because.. It fit in there a bit better, got one end done...I thought.. Including both ends of the long sides, and one end piece. Then the internet had all kinds of problems that I just had to fix.....needed to go out and BUY ( yikes!) new phone line and new CAT5 line. Old ones were breaking down. The CAT5 wound up too short, that is why I had to get a new one. Whew, had to run around with the Boss, for a bit, too..... Finally managed to return to the chopping block....only to find out the lid parts were too long....hate when that happens.. This was after I had trimmed the end piece to length. Couple of marks to show what I needed to remove.. Something like this? Then a few whacks on a chisel to cut away the "extra" stuff. Bummer that the fingers were already done? Not really, make things a wee bit easier. Finally got all four parts joineried.. I think that will do...for now. Still have to figure out how this slab of Cherry will fit in there... Needs cut to fit...but which type of joint to use for it? Might TRY a T&G? Or...just a groove and a rebate? Have to sleep on that awhile. As for dog holes in a bench top....did you know they are good for... Holding a chisel so it won't roll off onto the floor, or worse, stab my foot? The Witherby 3/16" is in one. The New Haven Edge Tool Co. 1/4" one rarely rolls anyway. That old mallet? Turned that a few years ago, out of Spalted Maple. Been pounding on things ever since......Maybe tomorrow..I might get organized a bit better? Nah, then I'd be dangerous...stay tuned for the rest of the story.
  16. Just a Fun Image

    From the album Big Ash Mallet

    Here is a fun picture showing the hand tools I used to help make this mallet, it took a combination of my table saw to make the slots, the shoulder plane to clean up the slots, the miter saw to cut the blanks at 5 degrees, and my hand tools to shape and make it interesting.
  17. Yard Sale Season has started...

    Garage sale sort of thing today. Used to be a fellow's workshop, now the heirs are selling things off.. Spent a little more than I would normally do, so...here we go Couple of Stanley chisels. An auger bit set, missing the 3/4" one. That fancy red handle? Why that be a Parker Line Hacksaw, blade might need replaced...there was a second saw that I bought.. A Great Neck No. 9 coping saw. The guide roller thingy is a "General No.810? Might make some use out of it? There was also a 12 volt battery for a Makita drill like the one I have. All in all, about $10 for the lot. The Boss had to do a bit of shopping there as well. That kind of added to the bill... Not too bad a start?
  18. Chisel Maintainence day

    While trying to take things easy,...yeah..riiight. Figured I could set up a place the right height to sharpen a few chisels up. Got a 1/4" scrap of plywood to set the oil stones on. Dug out the veritas MkI honing guide. Found a bottle of 3in1 air tool oil. A couple chisels needed a trip to the grinder, first. Most were at 25 degrees, but one was @ 30 degrees. Set the oil stones on the plywood, gave them a shot of oil. and went to town on it with a chisel. Even polished the backs flat. After the stones, then a few trips down some 2K paper. Set the group out of the way when done.. That long, skinny one is the 30 degree Firmer chisel. i was going to do the gouge...but, had other things to do... Tonight, got the last of the chisel work done, I hope. So, now I have another "batch to bring upstairs to refresh the edges Bevel chisels and a bunch of mortise chisels, even a few by Butcher. As soon as I figure the angles out for the mortise chisels, I can get busy on them.. Until then, I just kick back and rest the back....maybe.
  19. tool tote...test fits

    Supposed to be taking things slow and easy, because of the old back....yeah, riiight...Sharpened a few chisels this morning.....rested the back a bit.. hey, even a gouge! Got bored, wandered down to the shop....looking for more chisels....decided to plane a board instead.....got one side beveled, checked the width,,,needed a full inch removed, time for the bandsaw, as I am NOT jack planing that much white oak.. Note the table? that is the angle of the dangle I needed. bandsaw was faster, but, I still had to run a plane along all the curvy spots. That saw in the background, doing it's usual photobombing? needed that later. Got the oak panel to fit. Laid out a couple dados.. Figured I could just use a couple screws to hold ahandle in place, easier to change out, IF the handle breaks later. Still need to drill some holes for fat fingers, but.. Checking to see how things fit, tried out the wedges for the clamps.. Will glue this mess up later, as soon as i get another bottle of glue....will then take a plane along all the top edges, until they are flat. Plane the dovetails til they look like new.....well spiffy anyway. Might even plane the bottom edges... After that? we'll see. depends on the back...
  20. tool tote, progress report

    Well, back said I could at least try a bot of work.....wound up doing an hours worth... Laid out the second corner. Took a couple double checks, to make sure things were on the right directions...don't need backwards dovetails now.. been a few comments about my...dovetail saw....soooo, drug out the disston backsaw... But, even with the wax on the blade, it was still binding in the cut, too fine a teeth. The rip version is at another job site. Went back the the Atkins made saw from Cleveland. There is a LARGE knot in the center of this edge. I adjusted the spacing so no pins were in the way. Still, when I was chopping out the waste, it tried to cause trouble.. Yeah, popped right out. Got this "pin board" done, then the tails were maked out and bandsawn. Had to recheck a few times, to make sure I had things aligned the correct way. I had to trim a couple tails, as that Disston saw had a wavy cut. Straighten that out, and tried a test fit, with a mallet assist.. Not too bad? Upper two were from the Disston saw. Found a wedge, mallet to instal the other side.... Hmm, I might need a few more of them wedges, come glue up time. Grabbed the oak plank I will be using as a bottom.... mainly to hold the sides square. The huge knot hole? I figure I can leave it, and just sweep all the dirt and shaving down through it, saves dumping the tote out. Two corners are now done, dovetail wise. still have two more to do, before the fun begins.. I still have to bevel the sides of the flor board, and cobble the carrying handle. maybe a chisel holder as well? The size is geared towards carring full sized saws and other tools. Stay tuned, if the back settles down, there might be more to this story....
  21. Tractor Fest 2015

    Hitch a ride down to West Liberty,OH today. A fellow was kind enough to stop by, and pick me up. Wound up walking all around the place, very little shade, too. Lots of vendors, lots of food vendors, lots of tractors. Walked past one tent, they had these sitting out.. They might have more than I do....Walked on a bit, actually walked across the aisleway. Found out some planes were made of Gold.. The Keen Kutter hatchet? $55, that Stanley 45? $160!! I didn't even ask about them bits. Wasn't all this fellow had.. That incomplete 45? $110, that Stanley #48 with a missing cutter? $120!! He had a few hand planes of the "normal sort" Don't ask. I walked away from this one. Found a few items in some of the other vendor's piles. Wound up walking almost two miles, in two hours...There was one dealer, also had some planes of gold, but... There is the $1 table, and the Back Table to go through. Found a few chisels, and then a few handles for them. Then a couple drivers of sorts. Moseied on, found a few other items. Got to the point that I was not only shopped out, but was about out of cash. Mountain Dew was $2 a bottle! Loaded up the goodies, and the fellow drove me back home. DMV says I am not allowed to drive right now.... So, what all did I bring home? Well, these chisels, from a couple vendors. Yellow handle is a Fulton. The LONG one is a "Globe" there is a WARDS in there, and a 1/4" Mortise chisel. had to dig for some of the handles. Next.. Not sure about the screwdriver one, the push drill is a Millers falls 188A, with ALL of it's bits, We checked to make sure, as there was 8 of these to choose from..Next.. Two stones, with their boxes. part of a deal, of sorts. i buy the stones, and this #4 sized, plane shaped object.... A Handyman #1204. It does have the more normal rear handle. More walking around, forgot where the truck was.....stopped by one more vendor, they had a red object sitting in the grass, looking neglected A Craftsman 7" wide vise. paid a whopping $10 for it! now, I just have to figure out HOW to attach it to my bench, and where. For some reason, I am a bit worn out tonight. Other than attaching some handles to a few chisels....I simply flopped down in my chair. Whew....long day...
  22. Spent $6 at some yard sales today

    Well, one place we stopped at had a few hand tools. Picked a ring, it was holding a few wrenches And that thing they are laying on. Wrenches are SAE sizes. The thing they are laying on? Called a Speeder bar. You can "speed" a bolt or nut on or off with this. 1/2" Drive. A bit on the rusty side... Ok, have spent $2 so far....next stop They had a 4x8 sheet on some saw horses....most of the tools laid out on it were ...$1 including these three Stanley chisels. the wider one is 1", the other two are 3/4". The black handled ones appear to be a firmer style. Also on the "table" was the only plane seen today Well, at least it was plane-shaped. Made in England, a Stanley SB4. Had issues with it.... Iron was "pretty"..as in pretty chewed up. Took the chisels down to the Rehab Center.. backs look just like the edges do..now. They were a bit nicked up. Now, about that $1 plane. flattened the iron, and the sole. Cleaned the sides. Label was loose, and finally flew off...somewhere Those shavings? Well, I did manage to get the iron sharper than it was. Set up the test track I think it might just do..for a $1 plane. the design looked firmiliar... Turns out my Windsor #33 is just a #3 sized version of this Stanley #4. The Windsor came from Harbour Freight. I also cleaned off the test track.. Millers falls 56B. Cost more than the other two put together. Oh, and about that scratched up sole on the SB4? May not be a mirror polish, but a layer of candle wax does help. Much better, now. The Boss spent a bit more than I did. Not too bad..for just $6??
  23. Nice day to be "Cheap"?

    Well, a local village had a village wide garage sale day. Seemed about every other house was selling, or other.....I was after the "other" First place I bought anything had a pair of 24" F style clamps..."How much?" "Dollar, for the pair" Sold! Wandered around, found the Antique Store.....wat too high on their old tools, pass. Wandered around a block or three....table had a few pliers on it....sign said $1 for all three....sold so here they are. Nail set came a little bit later. Two pair of Diagonal cutters, and a small pair of Linesman pliers. The blue handled one is by *Worth* Went past another place, stopped to look around...nose smelled rusted something, or other....Place I stopped at had a pruning saw, double edged, but..BENT, pass However, just across the street, a Funeral Home was having a sale too..... No caskets though, but I did find a box of stuff... What was so special about a rusty old tool box? Well, for one thing, it was a Snap-On tool box, $2 and it was full of goodies. First off, though, here is the cleaned up tool box With a coat of green Rustoleum to stop any more rust. Inside this treasure chest? Well there were two chisels to clean up, and one to rehandle Not sure about the yellow handled one, but the LONG one is a Witherby by WETW of CONN. about 1915-1920ish There were a few wrenches Including some Tappett wrenches by Wright Tool & Forge, of Barberton, OH. There was a Snap-On nut driver thingy, and a Obstruction Brake wrench by Bonney. The Bonney is from 1923. There was that bike wrench like thing, and that Baltimore USA 62 nail set. But wait, there was more down in there Seems there was a few from the Traction Line/ Rail Road that went through the town. The long, single end one even has the Line's letters stamped on it. There was even a track spike. So, for about $4 total in tools, plus a couple for snacks and a DEW, not too bad a Rust Hunt? The last of those rusty items got a clean up today ( WHEW!!) But, there was one item I'm not too sure about. It LOOKS like a Blacksmith had used it a bit, the tapered end was forged that way Maybe a Smith's drift pin? been well beat up. Tapered end comes to a chisel-like point. Been fun looking up all these different tools. Might have found a couple "keepers"?
  24. Road Trip!

    On the road, looking for some rusty stuff. First place we stopped at had a bunch of stuff....Just needed a bunch of cash Like this get up. Didn't have a spare $100 bill to buy it with. Model number is a 3000. Oh, just around the corner of that barn, there was a "Parts" saw Label on it says Rockwell. Way too many issues, and no motor. And, no price... There was a bundle of saws sitting out on a flatbed trailer..4 saws for $2? Of the four, that Tool Box saw is JUNK, by Great Neck. There is a Disston National Hardware Special and a D-7 full sized saws. There is that panel saw with a steel plate riveted to the handle. Have the D-7 torn down, bolts cleaned up, and the two parts of the handle glued up in a clamp. Hmmm. Spent a whole $2 so far, On to the next sale site......not open? Ah late afternoon sale, not going to wait around town for five hours. On to the next on the list.. Found a place on Aldrin street. Had a router set up for a shop. Router tables, jigs, and a big box of bits.....$85? Well, already have all of that, pass. In the fron of the garage, a shaper with a cast iron top, and huge tray of cutters and jigs......$260? Pass. Got to looking around on the tables, picked up a box with two planes in it. Yep, two planes! The box was what that blue Great Neck Corsair C-4 smooth plane was sold it. The little blue object with it? A Little Giant Razor Plane, the one that was an oval (egg?) shape? Still has the Wilkinson blade in it! Haven't figured out who made the two chisels ....yet. This box was $6 plus two for the chisels....$8 total. Not too bad a day. Cheap. Other than going to Menards, to buy the wrong sized bandsaw blade ( return for the correct one tomorrow) and lunch. Not too bad a day...
