  1. Grand Prize We are proud to offer a Woodriver No. 63 Low Angle Jack Plane to this months "What's It" winner. This months "What's It" is sponsored by our supporter Woodcraft Supply. Originally advertised as a plane for heavy stock removal across the grain, the No. 62 has found a home as a smoother and is quite popular among collectors. The WoodRiver® No. 62 is faithful to the original design, but is almost a full pound heavier at approximately 4.6 lbs. It features a body cast from ductile iron, with a bed angle of 12°, a bubinga tote and front knob, and a high-carbon steel blade with a 25° bevel. The plane measures a little less than 14" in length x 2-7/16" in width and has a 2"-wide blade.

  5. Just in time for me being laid up for a few days, I received the December issue of the Gristmill by MWTCA. Many of you who have won our MWTCA drawings for membership are already aware of this wonderful publication, this month features Leonard Bailey, this magazine is full of great stuff and hand tool historical articles, and their main feature has a nice breakdown of the history of the hand plane and of course the Stanley brand references. For the studious woodworkers who love hand tool and implement history, these magazines are wonderful. To join MWTCA see their website at https://mwtca.org/ Or you can participate in our monthly projects at http://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forum/54-the-mwtca-whats-it-project/ By the way, I should be able to get our December What's It up and live today, sorry for the delay. Here is the cover of the December "The Gristmill" magazine.

  8. Hey folks, I have an idea, the last MWTCA What's It project for June spurred an idea in me that I think will be fun and more equitable for all. At this time, there are two ways you can win the current month's What's It. The MWTCA decides your answer is correct. You are chosen in a random draw. Proposal We would eliminate the random draw as the second way to win, and add the following: Instead of a random draw, for each months What's It topic, within the topic page, a voting poll would be installed. While the month is rolling along we could vote for "Best Answer". If MWTCA decides our answers are not sufficient, than we'd default to the "Members Choice" or "Best Answer" to award the membership too. No more random draws. Here is where the real fun begins! We need to butter up the Primary Winner prize. So, since it's so hard to get a good referenced and researched answer for MWTCA, and since it's so hard to get our answers accepted by the MWTCA, for the legitimate (MWTCA sanctioned) winner, we'll issue the calendar year membership, and along with that, we'll award a tool too. The tool would be in the spirit of the MWTCA, it may be an old Bailey plane, it may be a new hand tool sponsored by one of our supporters, It may be an old clean and usable Disston hand saw. But rest assured, the tool will be as classy as you all are. So to break it all down Primary winner (decided by MWTCA): One calendar year membership, and a hand tool. Alternate winner (decided by our membership): One calendar year membership. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
  9. Ok ladies and gentlemen, we now have our July "What's it" live and ready! The image(s) below is a MWTCA "What's It" image for you to research, and tell us all here in this topic post, just what the heck is it! Remember, the first accurate answer wins a one calendar year membership (or what's left of the calendar year) to the awesome organization MWTCA! If an accurate answer cannot be arrived at by the end of the current calendar month this project is posted, a random drawing will be held to include anyone who participated in this months What's It. One winner will be chosen to receive a calendar year membership to MWTCA and all of it's wonderful benefits of membership. Compliments of The Patriot Woodworker Community. For a run down on this project and the rules, please see this page at "The Patriot Woodworker and MWTCA "What's It" project" Project details There are none! In this case, no details have been provided but for what you see, as nobody knows what the heck this is. Perhaps one of you have just happened on one in grand dad's shop, farm or factory, and you may actually know "What's It!" Remember, "What's It" is not always woodworking related!

For a run down on this project and the rules, please see this page at "The Patriot Woodworker and MWTCA "What's It" project" A different "What's It" This is a unique What's it. Since we already know what it is, there is a specific question regarding this saw. What we are looking for is a specific answer to the following question. "I picked up this old Disston at a yard sale and I can't find anything like it.....it has a copper blade. It is magnetic, so I assume it's copper coated. Do you have any information on why a saw would be copper? Should I sand it to find the etching?"
  11. Ok ladies and gentlemen, we now have our May "What's it" live and ready!

But may not be either. The details included with this item is all we have folks, have fun and good luck!! 5-1/2" long: There is a 1/2" diameter hole that goes all the way through the handle to the open area at the screws seen in the above photo. One of the two metal pieces removed:

For a run down on this project and the rules, please see this page at "The Patriot Woodworker and MWTCA "What's It" project" Unlike many of our other What's It projects, we have absolutely no information for this tool as seen in the 3 images below, we are relying completely on the images to render a name for this apparatus. Good luck folks!
  13. John, With the first official winner of the monthly MWTCA What's It contest, wouldn't it be cool for that person to have a special Avatar or designation affixed to their profile "snapshot" that appears next to their posts during the month following the selection? Sort of a traveling trophy if you will; maybe even two versions (1) for actual validated winner who identified the tool, then one for someone who is random draw winner... Then at the end of the year or January of following year, throw those 12 names (or whatever the number this year) into a hat, have a blind draw for one winner and that person wins something from the TPW Store or maybe a coffee mug from MWTCA or ???? Hope this all makes some kind of sense...Not sure how complicated the Avatar/ recognition line would be to create and move month-to-month...it is a way to give on-going recognition to both winners & MWTCA..
  14. Ok ladies and gentlemen, we now have our March "What's it" live and ready!

  24. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's!!! Well, what have yall been up to this past weekend? Did you get some time in the shop? Did you go somewhere special? Or, if it was hot enough in your area, you may have just felt like staying in your home with the air conditioner cranked up and watch some great movies or read a good book! The later was us, my family and I kind of just closed up our home and took it easy, cranked the air conditioner to 78 degrees and hung out with each other, while it was not woodworking related, my son and I had a marathon model building day on Saturday. Our son was building a Stearman WWII PT-27 flight trainer. And I was building a F-14D Tomcat as seen in the image below, we had a dinner table full of model stuff! After working all week long at my day job, outdoors in 104 plus degree weather, I was ready to just call our weekend a shut-in. We did however go for a few bicycle rides locally while the sun was setting, although it was still in the high 90's around that time! But we had to get outside. Charles Nicholls Our Forum Host Charles is finally out of the hospital, for some great news! He is still hurting a tad, and unable to get back to his wood turning as full speed, but he is managing some pen turnings. It's great to have ya back Charles! The Patriot Woodwiki status I know I know! It's been forever since we had this brilliant idea to fire up a wiki for our forum and community, and you have all heard, "it's almost ready" many many times. The wiki software is a different animal, challenging and time consuming and it's just taken a lot longer to get under control than I had estimated. But we are closer than ever! I worked on some more user templates for research article creation this weekend, and I started another seed page for folks to edit and collaborate on. You can view the seed page at Easy Wood Tools. I created a new category called "Merchants" for our researchers and editors to share their subjects regarding the retailers and merchants in the woodworking trades, arts and crafts arena. The MWTCA What's It Don't forget folks, we still need your help to figure out what the heck these implements are! Remember, when you correctly name the implements, you'll be awarded a 1 year membership to MWTCA. Click on the following links. June What's It July What's It Cool Image of the Week So that's if for now folks, have a wonderful Patriot Woodworker week ahead! We wish you the best in life, and be safe in your shops and remember, safety first! If your woodworking operation feels uncomfortable, then it's unsafe!
  25. Good Monday Morning folks! We hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a safe one as well! I was in the shop part of Saturday building a couple jigs for some up coming chairs I am making. The one main jig is called a Side Rung Mortising Jig for the back and front seat posts to accept the side rungs of the post and rung chairs at the correct angles. Here is a picture of the jig being used by the author of the book I am using as a guide called "Chair Making Simplified" by Kerry Pierce. We also want to know in this topic, what did you all get done over the weekend! In life and in the wood shop, share your time with us here, and post some images of your work, or your travels! Charles Nichols Site Host Charles is still in the hospital and recovering from his surgeries, he has been plagued by issues for years and we all pray and hold him in our thoughts. He is not making it here too often these days but he is communicating with friends and family via Facebook, if you'd like to leave a message of good thoughts you can do that at his original post at Hospital Round Two or at his Facebook Page. Our Wiki The Patriot Woodwiki is shaping up, I am working on some templates that are pre-filled out for research page starters for each category. Our members and guests only need to enter the title of the research page they want to create, then click on the ready made template with headers and directions for creating a great wiki page, and that template will populate their article, and then they can manipulate the article as they see fit. We also installed a wonderful interactive map for our wiki at Geolocated Wiki Pages. You can click on a red icon and see the link to the related wiki page. The red marker is placed in a specific location according to the wiki page content. If the page is about a person, the red marker will be in either the location they were born, or the location they died. If the wiki article is about a college for example the red marker will be in the location of the college. If you go to the map, see the red marker in Northern California, and click on the red marker to see a link to "College of the Redwoods". Our Member Map Our Member map has a new default look to it, you can see the satellite imagery of our world at Member Map. You can still view the world with borders, countries, and streets, but the new default imagery just makes it fun. MWTCA We also have a new MWTCA "What's It" for the month of July, check it out and try your hand at historical research into these fascinating old tools and implements, and win yourself a membership to the MWTCA while your at it! I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and be well, and be safe!
