    Hey I don't want to suggest something you might not want but for what you suggested you are in to, an air grinder should be considered if you have a reasonable sized compressor and not the screaming kind. Because die grinders take 1/4" bits they can hog off more material than the 1/8" bits I prefer on carving. Also Wood Carvers Supply has the bits in 1/4" size and will do the same as the 1/8" bits I use but much faster.. Also if you don't have yet, Bring up Wood Carvers and check out their 2" carbide nugget wheel # 264866....and hold on to your hat for it will throw wood all over the place..Also a chain saw wheel will get after wood real fast but it will do the same to skin and bones the same way!! I can trust their air tools way more than their electric models. I have maybe ten different HF air tools and only one electric and all they need to last a while is light weight oil... But you do have to be careful about the amount of oil when used around expensive wood.. These have front and also rear exhaust so the rear exhaust model would be the one to buy. The last two I bought from HF is their 13.99 and the 19.99 1/4" angle grinders ...They also have the small 5/8" diameter pencil grip size air grinder for 1/8" bits and will be the next I buy..24.95 and will be cheaper with that always 40% off of any one item.

    Saturday Pick & Run

    Late getting round tuit, but last Saturday I saw a Yard Sale listed on CL not too far from home. The main items shown that I had interest were two portable air compressors, both old style oil pumps; one electric, one gas. My well over 40 y/o Sanborn? died a few weeks ago. So, off I went...Saw only one air compressor sitting in the yard which appeared to be a home shop conversion; As customary I wander around to see what else is there first. A table with a couple of big boxes full of "tools" mostly marked $1 that appeared this had not been their first yard sale appearance. Thanks in advance for looking. Comments/questions are always appreciated. Don't forget to pick-up your candy wrappers & drink containers at the end of the tour. Anyways here's what I came home with... Top turned out to be a Central Tool (not H-F) pen vice; Next two are ratcheting, fixed shank Phillips screwdrivers similar to Stanley's; more on those down the line Bottom is 3/8" socket wood chisel. Pen vice is a tad crusty...will it clean up? Stay tuned... Wood chisel is a bit crusty as well but under the rust I found Ben Hur and underneath that is USA. The best I can determine so far, Ben Hur was an in-house branded name of the old Van Camp Hardware & Iron Company, Indianapolis, IN Interesting they (Van Camp)were able to trade-mark the brand; Our County seat is home to the General Lew Wallace, the author of the book, Ben Hur The two screwdrivers; both are marked the same, Model 527 and that little tri-angle, Manufacturer Steel Corporation, Germany, U.S. Zone. With that mark, these were made sometime between 1946 & 1954 in occupied Germany. the two are identical except one had what appears to have been a red lacquer painted handle, the other black; the tip on this one looks more like a #2 Phillips where on the other more pointed like #1 Phillips.. This one appears to have suffered a bit more and actually appears to made inferior to the above one. Oh, the display table...not that I needed it but...A Black & Decker 425 Workmate...top is not the multi-layer ply nor the frame aluminum. but it does have the fold over front vise to act as down clamp. Oh yeah, why did I go there looking? Turns out this was a from the factory 5 HP gas powered, twin cylinder, single stage Speedaire (Grainger in-house brand)...guy said it will start-up on first pull... dang, it did too...pumped up, has the pneumatic governor pressure switch which works; while running I open the tank drain, no moisture, rust, or anything discharged...he had replaced one wheel and had the other yet to put on So I never had saw a price on the A/C until we loaded it ($150); he told me initially he would take $100; Workmate marked $25, (4) tool items = $4. I offered $100 and he helped me load I plan to take the electric motor, pressure switch, etc. off the old Sanborn and swap to this unit; will then convert the Sanborn tank to auxiliary surge tank (tank was replaced under a Sanborn safety recall maybe 20 years ago) As for the other items refurb mostly done...sorry lighting was not so good; what appears to be rust is reflection from my red/rust colored t-shirt; still need to sharpened the chisel but my honing guide needs refurbed too I may just clear coat the handles leaving the that much original...depends when I get some more round-tuits Once cleaned up, both shanks have R (backwards) 7? C (backwards) 7? - SS 2; sorry for the blurry picture

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!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

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.

Volunteer

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.

Education

Logging

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.
