  1. I was going thru HD tool section and found this. I could have used this thing many times when I was young. All you do is put it where you need it and pump it up with a common hand operated squeeze bulb. $16 on Amazon. I think you would use shims to achieve the distance you want. I don't know the total distance it moves, but with shims and blocks, I think it would be great
  2. I am installing this topic here in our Pulse Forum to get a better understanding of what folks would like to see in a "Review Department" within our own community here. This suggestion was originally created by @p_toad. Peter had mentioned a "review feature" over on WOOD forums. I would like to delve in deeper and have anyone who was aware of the WOOD "review feature" please elaborate on it, and what improvements or other ideas for a specific review feature would we want to have here. Also anyone who is interested in expressing their opinions on the pros and cons of a review department whether you used the WOOD feature or not. And all ideas are welcome. My main questions are, what was this feature? How did it work, and what were the steps you took to complete a review?
  3. Nice looking bowl Tom. I remember chasing my first bowl across the shop a couple times after a bad catch. Be sure to post it in the Turning Forum. We could use the extra traffic over there Had to do a copy and paste of a comment by HandyDan from the Woodworking forum, since I didn't know how to quote and migrate to another forum. Good suggestion Dan, here it is. The title is a little misleading, as my really first bowl wound up in pieces in the trash can. This is the bowl I turned at the basic bowl turning class I went to at the Woodcraft store in Tulsa. I picked up a mid size EWT rougher there also, and am anxious to put together a blank and try it out. The wood is Sycamore, finished with a coat of sanding sealer, and a coat of high friction polish. I didn't know there was such a thing until I took the class.
  4. I finally go to go to the Learn to Turn class at the Tulsa Woodcraft. Got lost going through Tulsa, though. Too much construction, and the road signs didn't correspond with Google maps. Got to the class an hour late, but they were very gracious about that. Got credit for the class, which is a pre-requisite for the Beginning Bowl Turning class, which is next Saturday. Now that I know the route, getting there from Wichita will be a lot easier. I came back from the class with two big take-aways. First, I brought home a basic bowl, next Saturday will be ! more in depth, and second, Easy Wood Tools are kick-arse!. My first experience with them. The wood used was poplar, which was pretty easy to work with. My only other experience with trying (emphasis on the trying) to turn a bowl ended up with pieces of maple spread around my lathe on the floor. Major fail. Going to have to save up some money, though, those tools aren't cheap. Good quality usually isn't. Which brings up a question. Which one first? I assume a rougher is first, but what size would be best? I see from their web site that they have more than one rougher.
  5. Not much on the yard sale trail, a little bit of rustiness. $1.30 for this mess...might clean up after a while.. Bought out half of the stack, no room for the other two...price per clamp? So far, I have $3.30 for tools this weekend....not that I'm cheap, or anything....just Frugal....
  6. On the road trip from the Lumberjocks get together......trying to make it around curves and over mountains...back end of the pickup truck was FULL. Kept looking for ANY Antique Stores / Malls......got back into OHIO before we even found one open. To even get out of the Shindig, we had to load up as much of Charles Neil's "scrap wood bin" as we could. This is about half of my "share"..the rest is further back in that corner. Anyway, this is about tools.. These two are the "keepers" of the BUNCH... This one is only for the handle, plate is junk. Not too sure about this thingy... Anyway, I sold Charles 3 saws, and fixed up another for him....I had to haul all the rest of his saws home.... There are TWO Butcher's saws on the bottom. Most of these will be for parts. (free saws...) There was a bit of trading going on. Charles had a top shelf of planes and tools he did not want...I got two planes.. That little piece of metal is my plane stop dog. The plane is a Type 7, No. 8 Stanley Jointer plane. Next.. Type 1, Millers Falls No. 11 Junior Jack.. Also tossed my way.. A No. 85 Stearns hinge gauge. A few irons for planes.. Not too sure about the block plane ones, there are 3 from IBC for bench planes. One still in the wrapper is a 2" wide one. Was a few other odds and ends....oh, about that Antique store? They also sold Guitars and accessories, too.... Had to make it a quick stop, though, had a nasty Thunderstorm headed that way. Made one $9.99 +tax buy in the store... It even had a twist drill bit made for this style of drill. Stanley 6" sweep brace. With a 7/16" drill bit. Long weekend, had a LOT of fun, had a great host. LOTS of food. Met some new people, too. Was told to edit Charles out of this picture, as for these other two Hooligans...(note the SMALL planer?) Radial arm saw now has a router instead of a saw....pretty country down there and another.. This was from US 50, on the way home to Ohio. Right after we passed a group of "bikers" setting up to pedal up and down these little hills... Not a bad weekend road trip...
  7. My wife told me to look at FB and to click on Market Place. I did and found another Craig's list type selling place. It automatically showed things for sale in my area. In some ways it is better than Craigs. I live in a very populated area and it has a big following. Check it out if you can, I found some wood close by. However, someone beat me to it
  8. Bright and early ( for me..) and off to a few Yard sales.....first three....Meh, turned down a $10 D handled 1/2" drill....already have one... Finally, at the fourth stop......found a tub with my kind of saying on it... Tape along the one edge said "Make offer..." Added a couple items to the tub, and paid the $6.......That pair of Visegrips, and the Carpenter's nippers were a dollar each. Got home, and cleaned and sorted a bit, found a wobble bit... 1/2" drive, 19mm for an impact gun. Socket set is one of the black, Laser etched set. 3/8" drive. There were 4 ratchets in the tub, all 3/8" drive. There was even a flashlight in there! And...it even worked! Tape measure is a Made in China,meh. I'll have to look at the Chalk box to see IF it is a Stanley. String even has the hook still on the end,,,! Not sure what I'll do with the tire iron...may keep it under the van's seat...never know Maybe Saturday, or even Friday, I might have better luck? we'll see. Stay tuned....

    I even know the names of these things since I've used them many many years
  11. Looking at tools and machinery the other day: Cabinet saws are Walker Turner at least 70 yrs old, Craftsman drill +, Powermatic 65 cabinet saw- probably at least 50+, wife- married 54 yrs, but she's 39! I know these machines can't last forever, but I have a personal guarantee to! North American Missionary that cannot retire until the devil does.
  12. Every now and then something really cool gets posted to our Facebook page by a friend or a member. @Reid Smith posted this wonderful video on our page. And after I watched this all get out cool video I researched more on this gentleman by the name of Chris, and his YouTube channel is really good, full of information both educational and full of ideas in woodworking. Chris specializes in human power woodworking. And he has a very creative flair. Many of you may remember Chris as the fellow who built that anniversary gift for his wife, the long trestle table, it was a viral video that gained international attention. Well this is the same Chris. Below is another video I absolutely love watching, and here is the link to Chris's YouTube channel at Chops with Chris. Check it out, you'll find yourself sitting and watching many of his videos, they are that interesting. This is one cool video! Watch for the quick time portion near the beginning, it speeds up.
  13. While searching for some odd parts, I came upon this site. It's worth a few minute browse if just for their hilariously funny item descriptions. You'll find stuff there, you won't find at your local Menards or Ace. https://www.ax-man.com Take a look. You can thank me later. On a more serious note, Peachtree is having a barn burner of a sale. http://www.ptreeusa.com/edirect_041117_easter.htm
  14. I have been looking at carbide lathe tools lately. Man are they expensive. I went on YouTube and watched some videos on how to make your own. I went to the store and bought two 18 inch prybars, a square cutter and a round cutter. I haven't used them yet. Pictures and update to follow.
  15. This is where 90% of the work gets done in the Dungeon Shop... Not a lot of room? Wait til something gets clamped up... Gets a bit more cramped. Gives me a reason to take the rest of the day....off. Find any tools you can ID?
  16. Just a great site by a chair maker, who also makes his own tools, very cool.
  17. These run 25 dollars each where I live. http://www.leevalley.com/us/wood/page.aspx?p=74528&cat=1,43838,74528
  18. Went this morning to buy a used Delta 46-460 and got a great deal. Lathe,stand,and G3D Chuck for 400. The chuck needs a lot of cleaning of rust and cosmoline. Had a little rust or heavy dirt on the ways but otherwise near new and probably only used about 10 hours. I will not use much , mostly for demos and off site turning of which I do not do much. Then I figure when I decide to sell could get all I put into it and maybe more.
  19. Stage one is done, at the moment. Moved a few corded items out of the way.. I moved the grinder to a new spot, the scrollsaw is just resting there, for now. Had to move the Brace/drill till to get this far....whew. When I moved the scrollsaw, found a mess under it.. Guess I used it more than I thought. Unloaded the plane till ( onto the Boss' washer..Shhhh) and took the till away for a bit. Had to move one more power tool, and needed a spot to place it, for now At least it is out of the way, for now. Not sure about where it will set up at, or even which level. I may do away with the lower level, all together. Once the spot was cleaned off, I could go about installing both tills in their new home.. Brace till went in first, then the plane til. Still have a bit of room to the left side. Will leave that door alone, kind of handy way to store LONG handled items. Oh, and I also cleaned off the top of the tool chest.. And gave it a rattle can of shine up. There was an old E-Cord hanging overhead...didn't work. Got it untangled from the rafters, coiled up, and hauled away. Will replace with a new one. Stage 2 will be later today, maybe. Afternoon Tea will happen first.....then maybe back to moving things around. Have to figure out where the power tools will go to help out with the work-flow. It will do for now, even the camera is tired....
  20. Getting tired of banging my legs against a tool chest I don't even open up anymore. Sooo, it, and a few other items will either be removed from the shop, moved to a different spot, or... Tossed into a drawer in a chest of drawers I still need to cobble up, out of pine. There is an old dryer down there, right now covered in boxed up toys..er..TOOLS. Thinking I can have a couple kids with strong backs (leaves me out) to haul the old dryer out of the basement, andoff to the salvage yard ( they can spend the $9.60 at McD's) They can also haul the Tool Chest #1 upstairs. I'll clean it out, air it out, and call it a walnut Hope Chest. I intend to move the power tools to the north bench, where the plane till is. Plane till and the brace till will take their place at the end of the work bench, where an old dresser sits. Now, what will go where the dryer was? Well, how about a 5-6 drawer Chest of Drawers? I can stash all kinds of items in the drawers. Might even have some storage on the top? Will need to set some blocks down on the floor, to keep the dresser's feet dry. Chest of drawers won't be anything fancy....just a place to stash shop items. The Tills are being moved, due to a water line that goes overhead. Sound like a plan?

  22. Dad couldn't make it to our Thanksgiving dinner, he was feeling under the weather and the drive down the mountain would have been a tad precarious, as he was feeling dizzy from the medications he's on. So we told him not to fret, we'll bring him some Thanksgiving the next day. My wife packed up a nice care package of food for him, and my son and I headed up the mountain with his food. We like going up there, it's the mountains. I thought I'd share with you all my Dad's place, it's a neat home, situated up on a ridge over looking some wonderful scenery. Dad showed us some of the bird houses he's been working on. These are his creations that he will sell locally at the gift shops and to individuals as well. Here is pops, with my son, his grandson. Dad lives a nice no nonsense life, he's been a bachelor for about 45 years, he doesn't have much room for the frilly stuff, he uses that stove to heat his home, and when the electricity goes out, he'll put a pot of stew up on that old stove. Since his appliances are all electrical, when the power goes out, it's the stove! He has some birdhouses sitting on the side waiting to be painted, he paints them in his home where it's nice and warm. Don't worry, the stove aint on right now, the paint is fine! Here is a view from the front of his home. This is looking out the window at the stove area. He has birdhouses all over his property, he built this wind screen a few years back and put a bird house atop it. By the way, the dog is Suzy, his Beagle, best friend, and profound varmint hunter. Dad standing in front of the shop he and I built back in 2005. This is where he'll hang most of the day, building, inventing, and just staying out of trouble. This day, I have never seen his shop look so clean, he typically has about a half foot of shavings and dust on the floor. Here's a shot of his cutoff table and general work bench. An ol Unisaw we picked up at a garage sale, and we outfitted it with a Biesmeyer. His assembly table for the birdhouse and other crafts and woodworking. His ol Delta scroll saw. Old Craftsman band saw, I gotta tell ya guys, this ol saw has a ton of features on it, I can't name them right now, but I remember there were just some really cool things going on with this old saw. Another shot of his work bench and wall. He uses this PC belt sander to shape and smooth edges with. Here is a neat view looking out of his shop to the front. Dad's home, an ol single wide built in the 60's. We've had a ton of fun, in this old home. My dad and I lived in a trailer a third of the size of this one throughout my teens up to the point I joined the Army. After I ETS'd out of the Army, I returned to live for a while longer in our trailer till I was steadily on my feet. Dad was and is always there for me. Some more of his birdhouses. These stairs he made from leftovers he found around the neighborhood, they get us down to the lower level of his property. My dad does things like this, he'll build for minimum needs, and it works! He is a true minimalist. Here is a nice image of his home, with the shop. A couple more birdhouses he built Thanks for following along my pictorial of my dad's place and his shop. There isn't much he can't do. He's from the old school of thought, and I love him dearly for it. His philosophy is "use only what I need, nothing more nothing less". I have seen him stretch a pot of stew over 5 days, and make a 20 dollar bill last a week. He was raised on the farm in New York and his family later moved into the city of Aurora ILL. where his dad blue-collared a life. My dad served in the Navy, he was a corpsman stationed in San Diego's Balboa Medical Hospital in the late 50's. He's just a great ol soul, I love him.
  23. More camera issues today....started to install the hinges on that Cherry box, just about got it done, and the camera acted up. Oh well, laid out some toys for this job Had a bit of trouble with those push drills.....changed to a different drill later. Had these two to install.. And I used the square to set how far in from the corners to start the hinges at. Marked a line on both halves of the "joint".. Used that chisel, and a couple others, set it at each spot, smack it twice with the mallet, and move along. Wider chisel to level the playing field. Pencil to mark the holes using the hinge as a guide. pilot holes for the screws.. And repeat until all rebates are done. Waxed the brass screws,and installed the lid. Found a jig to hold the lidded box up enough to add a coat of 50/50 mix. So, now a PIP? This is the front, needs a latch yet...rotate 90 degrees Side #1, rotate.. Ah yes, those hinges. Rotate again.. And the other side. Oh, about that other drill I used for pilot holes? That Buck Rogers drill was having "issues" with holding onto that small of a bit. This was the second eggbeater I tried. First one wasn't able to tighten down enough. The only markings on this drill is a "No. 5" on the crank. Seemed to work well enough. On Dec.15...I will be going through same day surgery for them to scope the knee. Have a lot of "junk" floating around in there. They will also be "sanding down" all the rough spots Uncle Arthur has been leaving. Waiting on the Hospital to tell what time to show up that day. Hoping to get this box done before that happens...
  24. WOW! Yesterday delivered to my door was the full book version of the Lee Valley Fine Woodworking Tools Catalog. Over 490 pages of great drooling reading and bedtime dreams. I love the front cover, they are all Router Planes, look at the fantastic craftsmanship in these hand made planes, do you see the frogs!
