  1. I made these Easter eggs a couple of years ago using Stutter/chatter cutter tools on the lathe. I then detailed with paint. I've shown these before, but we have some new member that may want to give this a try. You can make your own tools, or buy them as I did. The set of 3 that I got were not expensive. It was a fun project
  2. Will the "real" Craftsman tools, please stand-up. Not surprising this dispute would surface sooner-than-later... Stanley sues Sears
  3. OK, I know this is old information, but this is a well done video of who owns and manufactures what tools. There is some interesting info buried in the video, also. Do you know, that, there are two different Rigid tool lines; Orange colored and Red colored? The red ones are the true Rigid brand and geared towards the commercial end and the orange colored ones are manufactured, under license to Rigid, by several different companies. The video, also, touches on where the tool brands are based, what their annual tool sales, in dollars, is, and how many people they employ Anyway, enjoy...
  4. Ran across a definitive list of popular tool brands and who owns them. Check out this link. Quite revealing. Scroll down some to the table of contents and choose from there. https://toolguyd.com/tool-brands-corporate-affiliations/
  5. Mark Stansbury (creator) posted on this (his) link on another site. This is a treasure trove of resource material, catalogs and the like for anyone that appreciates, uses, collects or researches old tools. Kudos to him for his vast work...I've C&P his comments from another site. Posted 09/16/2017 About a year ago I started uploading tool catalogs that I have scanned onto the Internet Archive (Archive.org). In July the uploads got a name, International Tool Catalog Library, and it's now up to 562 catalogs and other items. This includes many of the old Rose Antique Tool scanned catalogs, and whatever I could find on Google Books. There are many on woodworking hand tools, and you can pick topics or manufacturer to help find what you want. In addition to American, there are 42 English catalogs, 31 French catalogs, and a few others. Please bookmark it, download and save what you want, and spread the word. Wiktor Kuc is using some of my scans for WK Fine Tools. If you have scanned something that you'd want to add to this effort, please contact me. I'm particularly looking for the big names like Stanley and Millers Falls, including tool instructions.
  6. I ran out of wall space in my shop and needed more room for my woodturning tools, so I had been thinking of a mobile station that can be rolled anywhere I need it. I recently built what I call my prototype. With a lot of leftover MDF I went to work and came up with this, mind you it’s very rough but I can use this idea and fine-tune it to create a "real" finished cabinet. Let me know your thoughts.
  7. Woodcraft has their Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) on sale until December 31, 2018- 10% discount!!! And, if you buy $35 or more they will throw in FREE shipping! Might be a great way to use some of that Christmas Cash that Santa left. https://www.woodcraft.com/categories/easy-wood-tools?trk_msg=EDTF891G0N2KLA5JPKOG98O730&trk_contact=QNSFAEQ45HFA1IHE09ORJKR45S&trk_sid=2DOUC4P1J1GC4CAVP8GMIA3TOO&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Easy+Wood+Tools&utm_campaign=End+of+the+year+means+an+end+to+these+deals
  8. We got fun and games We got everything you want If you want to play. Tool Chest is completed. And sitting in it's new home. A look at the rest of this little box Most furniture has a plywood back, not this thing. Thems raised panels, in Pine I can carry the "tote" over to the bench, with the toys, er, tools I need. That handle on the backsaw sticks up just enough, that the tote can only go so far. Five saws are in the til. Inside area is 25" long. A jointer, three jack planes, and three smoothers reside in the cramped Plane til. the rest of the planes? reside on the "Ready Rack". Another look? This little place is MY workshop. Even hired a new crew to clean it up. Igor was fired for using my broom as Transportation. I hired his three brothers....Larry-gor, Curly-gor, and Moe-gor. Seem to do a decent job.
  9. Still a mess, but it sure looks better than it did a month ago. This is my new work area, a little small, about a quarter of what I had, but I like it, feels warm and cozy.
  10. Hartville Hardware is opening a second store in Tallmadge, Oh. They are having a Grand Opening this weekend. Free 5 gallon bucket and 20% off what you can fit in it. Just a heads up, no affiliation. https://www.hartvillehardware.com/tallmadge

  21. I had a good time endlessly wandering around the floor @ IWF. 3 of us went. One to look at software and all of us to look at banders and routers. In between I looked at lots of other interesting stuff. They estimated attendance at about 30,000. Lots of Chinese stuff, some looking better than before. For routers we kind of agreed on 3 (4) brands. For our level of work that meant a price tag of $125K to 200+. By the time a few bells and whistles were added another 20-30K. When we upgrade it will have a push off and clean feature, 18 drills, 12+ tool changer, & a C-axis. Maybe auto load & auto label. There were quite a few auto stackers on display. Price seems to have come down, some now under $100K. We can't currently justify that but they seem quite efficient. They can put away and stack for the next days production overnight all by themselves. Felder had a very interesting router for machining parts that have already been roughly cut to size. It took up a relatively small floor space and had lots of good features. Edgebanders by the zillions. Priced from 5K to 700K. Our picks ranged in price from about $120K to 175. Professional level machines with most of the whistles. We don't do large volume banding but normally about 500 to 1200 bands a day. Couldn't decide if machines that could use laser banding were worth their cost. There isn't a big enough selection of laser banding available currently. I found a supplier of molded rubber products that can make new sleeves for my Max spindle sander. Also found a supplier of silicone membranes so I could replace the one on our 5x10 press. Cost seemed reasonable at about $1500. Lots of hardware was shown. Nice to actually get to feel it rather than the catalog. Lots of lumber and veneer suppliers. Several specializing in the current rage, natural edge slabs. Looked at tooling. The best is priced that way! We still use Leuco blades and Onsrud router bits both out last the more common small shop tools by a wide margin. We just cut 80 sheets of 3/4" mdf into 2 7/16" rips. We stack cut 3 sheets at a time. Less than 10 second cycle time. We do that about every month and a half for the material distributor who sells it to someone w/o a productive saw. Anyhow Atlanta was nice, good food, nice weather, rented a nice condo for the duration of the show. Got Marta rail tickets to ride the subways where we needed to go, cheap! One of our guys was new to bigger city life and stuck to me like glue. I think he was afraid he'd get lost and not know how to find his way back. I told him about the bread crumb trick but he didn't buy it. The airport was crowded and the TSA lines we stupidly long. Anyone else make the trip?
  22. Labor Day Weekend, means I travel to West Liberty, OH. at least once, or twice....why? And there were bigger ones, and they were even running.. This little red things was running... So was this one....but these other two... Were not. There were a few tractors, sitting around.. The rest of the tractors were getting set up for the Parade.... The Magic Bus? Hmmm, no tools here.... Nope, no tools here... Not much here... getting warmer? pan to the right a bit.. The word here was...OUCH! The one big plough plane? $80....The Stanley #80? $20... Didn't need any of these...things...nor.. Any of these...I even turned down a Stanley Handyman #4....moving along... I did find one item in this pile...but not much else... Not much here, to look at..tool-wise.. Lathe & tools..$150...same price for the saw....didn't even look at the stand... $10 Stanley No. 82... $1 Stanley No. 945 and.. $3 saw. And, for a $1 donation, a big glass of ice water...Long, humid day...."dogs" are barking, right now...
  23. There was a time when you needed a tool, you just had to make it yourself. Last week I had a gentleman stop and look at some of my hand tools at First Friday. He was telling me about a few wooden tools he had. I ran into him at the auction on Saturday night and he said I have something to show you. A trip to his vehicle and he produced these three very nice hand made wooden tools. He said they had hung in his fathers shop for as long as he could remember and when he passed away he took them down and brought them home. He offered them to me, he wanted them to go to someone who would appreciate them and keep them, not just sell them. WOW! There is a Wooden Scribe, a Wooden vise and A Wooden Caliper. The scribe. It is scribed with measurements. And the back side. Then the wooden vise The wooden caliper. His father was a carpenter/woodworker and probably made these in the early 1900's. So excited to add them to the collection and really cool to have some history to go along.

  25. Well, time to draw up a "Plan" of some sort.. Yep, that's it. Bed is in the next room...involved laying a board on the bed to get heights worked out....checked with the Boss on head board height...Now have the lengths for the sides and the ends.. Needed these...to lay out a few lines on a post.. Ok, need to get 1 foot board post, and one head board post out of this thing.. Stuff like this wasn't included...will be headed towards the FirePit later.. Ditto...laid out a cut line to cut the two posts apart.. Saw kerf sized. Used a couple other boards to layout for the head board parts.. 24" wide? Not quite..23-7/8" wide. 2x4 will be the top/bottom rail ( bought two). Once I knew where the bottom rail will be I could also lay out for the top rail. "Notch" is just to locate the size of the plywood panel. Also laid out where the frame rails will go. Lay out for this thingy was done...might as well cut the posts apart...make it easier to layout the other post.. Boss said "NO!" to my cutting the post in place....had to haul it to the shop.. Post was too long to lay ON the bench...laid it across this bench, and rested the end over by the grinder, on it's bench..Took a while, got my Cardio Workout for the morning.. Shorty is for the foot board end...."Jeff" is for the head board end. Debating on completing all the cuts, then layout the other two, or just lay things out and cut the second set. Side rails will run past the head and foot boards. Sliding dovetails to connect all four rails.....then the posts are installed to the outside of the frame...leaves the interior clear. Posts will get a few lags to attach them, no glue. Want as much that can be torn down for any future moves as I can..Head board may stay as a glued up unit..we'll see. Well, it is a start....stay tuned...
