Some of you know that me and my family bought my grandparents farm house, ive been busy trying to balance free time and get crud done time and its been tough for me to stay on task.

Any way, colder weather is on its way here in Wi so i decided to stat putting together a small shop down in the basement.

Well for years I've seen this homemade contraption and could never figure out what it was till about 15 minutes ago.

Prehistoric archives! Really cool Dave. So what was the final mind grab that made you figure it out? By that way folks would pay good money to have something like that in the corner of their room by the fireplace. I know you wouldn't sell it perhaps, but the fashion value on it is worth mentioning.

Very nice.  I know several folks that have several treadle powered wood working tools.  A few years back I was looking into getting one of the bottoms from one of those old treadle sewing machines and making one but so far it is only a pipe dream :)  In the right market that treadle saw should sell nicely.

Great find - Always love these old WORKING machines.  Unfortunately, mine is broken right now and still haven't found the time to fix it.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
