  1. Atkins Saws Blog Spot

    While researching a few recent purchases, I discovered this site. It has several other links as well as pdf. catalog files. Very interesting and comprehensive site.
  2. Sharpening A Handsaw

    Nice article discussing the steps for sharpening a handsaw- http://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/editors-blog/how-to-sharpen-saw-blades
  3. $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.
  4. The tote is done, I think

    Got the dovetails all planed smooth, even added a bit of round over. Final sanding is done. One coat of that SMELLY BLO is on. Brush on, wipe off. Soooo, drum roll, if you please.... Full side view. Splay is @ 22-1/2 degrees. DTs were spaced by eyeball-Mk1 has a solid oak floor! Note that the handle does not go all the way to the floor. Allows some tools to slide under. Speaking of tools.. That be a full length handsaw, sitting very compfy in there, You can almost see the slight bit of round over on the corner. Plane and a sander did most of that. Over all length is 33-1/2", with a width of about a hair over 12". handle tops out about 7-1/2" tall. weighs about the same as my Stanley No.7c. more pictures in the Gallery.

    Detail of the corner joint, showing the slight round-overs. That happens to be a full length handsaw sitting very comfortably beside the handle.
  6. That tool tote, part 2

    Well, my back is giving me a bit of trouble.....decided to try a bit of sawdust making, until the back decides otherwise.... Had the lines already laid out. I just used a 1/2" dovetail bit to set the bevel gauge at the right angle.. On the way down to the Dungeon Shop, happen to see a little Panel saw, decided to see how it would cut. Saw is a 10 ppi "ClearCut" brand, from a company in Cleveland,OH. A little wax on the plate, and away we go.. this thing cuts fast! Even faster if I use the entire saw. I tried to at least split the lines, with maybe a bit to the waste side... A 10 ppi saw, doing rip cuts? Works for me. Seemed to cut a lot faster than my Disston Backsaw would. Ok, I clamped the plank to the benchtop, grabbed a few chisels and a mallet.. The trick here is to just go halfway through. popping out the waste as I went. Then flip it over, and come in from the other side. Wind up something like this.. It will need a bit of fine tuning, but, now I can mark the lines for the tails. And mark which side of what lines to cut on. handsaw again? Ehhhh,not this time.. The areas with the "X" is where I need to cut, LEAVING the lines. I am too used to split a line with a handsaw, but with a bandsaw, I can see the lines, and leave them. Then that chisel stuff again Halfway there. On the left side? wasn't quite sure about how little wood would be left. Adjust the line, and cut in the waste side. Then chopped CAREFULLY to get this tail board ready to flip over.. Not too bad? Time for a test fit, to see how much needs trimmed up.. Top and bottom edges will get planed flat, when things are glued up. Looks like I need a bit of trimming so the tails will settle down a bit lower onto the pins. Both sides splay out about 5 degrees or so. Back was acting up, and I still had to walk up the stairs out of the shop. Flipped the fitted parts over, so they'd sit better on the bench.. Back is saying it is done for the night, I might try again tomorrow....we'll see. Got three more corners to do.....
  7. Pictures of saws?

    Right before a fire so rudely interrupted things around here, I had just finished up the handsaw refurbs. There are six handsaws, all bright and shiny, stacked up, awaiting a place to go. Biggest thing now is to find a way to take a few GOOD photos of the crowd. Two panel saws, and four full length ones. need to find a way to show them off, I guess. Two No.7 with nibs, one skew back D8 and one skew back unknown. The panel saws are 20" long. One has an Atkins "Sheffield" medallion on board, the other??? handles are even cleaned up. Still one to go, but it needs some hardware first. plates are almost too shiny, lots of glare off of them.... Just asking...
  8. I worked over a few handtools tonight. Was a bit wierd down there, though. I would move a bit, then weight while me head caught up. First, I cleaned off a Disston saw. Rust was trying to take hold. Saw is "special", and says so right on the plate, no less. "National Hardware Special" from 1954. Finally, something YOUNGER than me in the shop. Not sure IF you can read the etch in the photo It has DISSTON in big block letters, no less. Checked out the larger planes tonight, and found them needing some sharpening, too. First to feel the stones was a Small Jointer plane Had to grind a new bevel with the grinder, polish the bevel with the 1" wide beltsander. then it could go to the stones, and the papers. A bit of stropping and a polishing of the chipbreaker followed. Almost a full width shving you can read through. Chipbreaker did have a gap where it met the iron. That narrow belt sander worked it flat, and started a polish to the edge, Then a bit on a stone, then the strop. No gaps seen, now. Next was the old Stanley #5-1/2 Jumbo Jack same routine, until it worked like a smoother....Of course, Junior had to tag along, as well... All this talk of acting like a smoother, brought out a Millers Falls #9 Smoother, as well used it to clean things up a bit, since it was already sharp. One last plane needed a bit of work A Stanley #31 Jointer plane. Been having chattering issues lately. Chipbreaker was only in contact at one corner on the iron. Bevel on the iron was rounded over, too. Back was a little bit out of flat. Got all that fixed, including the chipbreaker being bent. Ball pean hammer fixed that. Ran a the test drive on some pine scrap. It was cutting see-through stuff. Tried out a couple block planes.....meh, next time I float back down there, I might give them a little working over. Enough for one night.
  9. Twins?

    Spent a whole $4 on a pair of handsaws. They seemed to have some good bones to them. Under all that rust, that is Just a bit of rust to clean up. The handles did look good, though They were Disston USA D-8s. Brass hardware, too. Got the two apart, shined the brass up. Cleaned and refinished the crack-free handles. Then a lot of sanding to clean the plates. Found both had an "8" stamped in the heel. 8ppi, and they were both crosscuts. In fact, they were the exact same model!. One might have been re-sharpened a few more times, though Notice a difference? Tooth lines are matched up, top of the plates do not match up. As for the rest of this clean up Late 40s-early 50s? Disston USA on the medallions. Might be worth the $2 a piece? For a set of twins...
  10. Playing with a tree limb

    Son had chopped down a Norway (pest) Maple from out of the Lilac bush. Found a straight section and tried a couple handsaws to cut it out. Yeah, Cardio! Brought the "victim" in to the house Still shaking from the sawerying? On to the Dungeon we go ( add the Igor laugh, here) Clamped into the Monarch Vise After roughing down three sides.Time to bring out some old planes Yep, steel frog and all. Tried a couple other ones, too Sargent #414c made a few passes, then a little larger one took a turn Stanley #5-1/2 Jumbo Jack. It was a night too big for this work, though So I let Junior take over, and make just a few shavings of Soft Maple. Now to let this blank dry for a good while, then we'll see...
