  1. While I was perusing one of my favorite chair-makers blogs, I came across this review of the Wood Owl auger bits. Very interesting, especially when you get to boring at an angle, and how the triangular core of the threaded point is larger on the Wood Owl, and tends to split as compared to the Irwin core. And it makes total sense too. On the other hand the Wood Owl excelled in other areas of boring. If you are interested in this comparison, see Elia's blog below. It's a good read I think. Testing Wood Owl bits/class opening | Elia Bizzarri - Hand Tool Woodworking HANDTOOLWOODWORKING.COM I recently posted about drill bit varieties for chairmaking and got a number of comments about Wood Owl bits. I had never used...
  2. Needed a new type of screwdriver.....lee valley wanted way to much for one of theirs, was out of stock, anyway. Needed a screwdriver to remove these... Called "Split nuts". Decide I could make my own screwdriver, first i needed a 1/2" spade bit Well...Lowes did sell singles. Then dig through the "spares" box, looking for a handle... That could accept a hex shaft, and lock on to it ( yellow "stripe" is a flip out compartment for bits.meh) I think that will do as a start....needed to take this, a saw, and a big cup of water to the shop....and clear a spot on the crowded bench Grind and dunk until I got this far....grinder even got a start on a notch....file to refine the notch into a square shape.. Then keep thinning the end, until it fits the slots, exactly. Some of the slots needed cleaned out...but.. Seems to work. Had to narrow the "blade" a tad, to fit the smaller sized nut...which are stamped on their non-show side.. Washbourne Patent...DEC 31 1867. Plan now is to scrounge up a punch to gently drive each bolt back through the handle, take the handle of the saw off. Clean and sharpen the saw's blade, and maybe refinish the handle. Will even shine up the brass.... Not too bad, for a $1 saw? Bottom saw is a bit newer Panel saw...by Simonds. Sorry, no medallion on the rip saw...... Stay tuned
  3. Folks, I am in the market for a set of brad points. Namely in the smaller size sets, say from 1/4" to 1/2" so I guess that would be a set containing four bits? 1/4", 5/16", 3/8" and a 1/2". Or something in that manner. I am looking for very sharp clean holes, which all brad points will do for a period of time, but this is what separates poor from great, sharpness retention. If you use brad points, what do you use? Thanks folks!
  4. From mid summer to recent when I'm in the Emerald City and as time allows, I try to stop by Habitat for Humanity Restore and a few of the indoor flea markets...Below is stuff that followed me to my truck. As always, keep your arms & legs inside the ride at all times and be sure your safety harness is buckled. No Smoking is allowed and you must be 18 to enter or accompanied by an adult. This offer is not valid in all areas. If you call now we'll double your order, just pay a separate fee. Immediately discontinue use and contact your doctor if a rash appears or you have trouble breathing. Some restrictions apply and never feed the animals. Restrooms are on the right. In the unlikely event we have to abandon ship please make sure you are wearing clean underwear. Thank-you for using our services. We hope you had an enjoyable experience. Please take time to fill out the survey at the end. Left over projects from the old HD Kid's Workshop they used to hold on Saturday mornings. (2) of each, Toolbox & Sail Boat. Hopefully my two grandsons can help me assemble these next spring/summer Cost me 50 cents/each Local flea market...Craftsman Marking Gauge complete with blue marking chalk dust. Circa 1960's...How much was it? It you answered $2.14 you are correct. State of Indiana gets their 7%. It was only a buck...'er buck o seven. Any markings & etchings eroded away. Surprisingly, it's nearly dead on at 6" I'm thinking a Stanley but ???? This was after I had buffed off the worst of the rust. 25 cents each, scale not included...only for demonstration purposes; finials are white oak I had to dig deep for these treasures. The two reamers, center punch which appears to be a reground broken pin punch, the 6 (no name) and 10 (Irwin) and the old rubber band totaled 50 cents The ratcheting screwdriver,no name, but marked Made in USA (maybe a Dunlap) also 50 cents. The (3) countersinks + the rubber band another 50 cents. 2/3 never used or minimal. The other, maybe it will work in wood or plastic. Cornucopia of treasures between a flea market & H4H Restore. Biscuits, 10 cents/container; miter gauge marked $2; 50 cents; large zip-tye bundle 10 cents; collet wrench-quarter, 1/4"-1/2" tap t-handle 50 cents' 1/4" chuck key, dime, large pencil boxes, new (6 total) 50 cents/ea, Stanley Handyman ratcheting screwdriver w/ #2 bit, missing cap, 50 cents; brown jersey gloves, priceless; that & they were from home inventory Craftsman BS Blade, NIP, marked $3; discount orange tag made it $1 Quarter/each Little 6" tri-square before picks; Two more 12" combo squares; blue head one is a Stanley 46-222; circa late 1970's-1980's; other Made in USA; Combo squares have been re-conditioned & will be appearing in a separate thread coming soon to your neighborhood. Price what you see is it not counting Indiana's 7% "finders fee." Didn't need them that's for sure...probably should seek counseling or something. (2) 11/32 x 1/4" dr shallow sockets (those were for my brother he lost his) and 1/4" x 10mm shallow (for me in my spare collection) & what turned out to be a Sargent Block plane but it looks almost identical to Dunlap block; dime each for the sockets, quarter for the Craftsman ignition wrench and a buck for the plane. Cast know is broken; slightly different than the Dunlap...maybe an older version??? Dunlap on the right. It's been in the re-furb shop for some time...one of these days??? Could be twins. Yes that is 30o on the Dunlap iron. You don't want to hear why? I won't make the same mistake on the Sargent. Well probably not. Yeah, I bought another one of these B&D's...I'm up to an embarrassing number now. Is was missing the chuck key which I had; buffed the rust off the chuck for the photo shoot. Came with the 7/32" bit...it needs sharpened; Thorsen combination box end wrench belonged to my grandfather. I've had it over 50 years. 3/8" single speed; still needs dis-assembled, gear head cleaned, grease replaced, but works great. A whole lot of spindles and such...25 cent/bag. I think 29 bags total Couple more pencil boxes...Grandson's each got one (not pictured) to start school. O yeah, a Disston 12" back saw...thought I took a picture of the saw, but just the tag...saw is a little rough, needs cleaned and sharpened...$1...pictures in the next episode of Poor Man's Pickings. Well there you have it...keeps me off the golf course, out of bars, jail and money, but hey, somebody's got to do it. Until next time...Y'all hurry back now. Ya hear? And don't forget boys & girls, mail in your box tops along with $99.99 and receive a box of genuine, farm fresh, sawdust where you can make your own chip board. Some assembly required. Wood glue not included. Oh yeah...Survey! What survey? We don't need no stinking survey!
  5. Now I am excited! Hey, simple mind, simple pleasure. I ordered the Stanley No. 49 Auger Bit Depth Stop, should be here by Saturday. It'll be a very handy addition for my holes! Ya I know I could make some, but I really like these mechanical do-dads and gizmos.
  6. It's been years. I have put up with a cluttered sloppy mess of bits in pill bottles poly wrappers making this drawer a complete unworkable disaster. Finally I got fed up with the madness and drilled a few holes in a hunk of ply I've seen People pooh pooh those router bit collections ( see the ones in red) I bought one for 30 sumpin bucks at a show and have never regretted it. I use the daylights outta them.
  7. Here are a couple of my antique tools that are still being used... Brace with 1/2" and 1" spade bits. J.B.Ungerson - Barmen Germany is stamped on all three pieces. Robert Sorby Backsaw - 16tpi.
  8. Folks, I need to purchase a Forstner style bit, to drill holes for chair rungs, the hole size is 5/8". My existing Forstner style bit does not eject the shavings out very efficiently and I end up with a smokey mess by the time I hit the bottom of my depth I need. What brand or style of bit would you recommend for this operation? The holes are 7/8" deep, I am using the bit on a drill press. Thanks for any help.
  9. That time of year again. Three towns and a quarter of another having sales! First town was the 1/4 town, since we were right in that town....meh, struck out. Boss found a few things, then a trip through the countryside.....again a strike out. Just missed a sander and belts.. Went on to the next town, as they had CHEAP Gas for the van! Three ring circus trying to get to an open pump, the pay before you pump, too. Tank's full, on to the sales! Found a small barn off the side of the road, an old Plumber was selling a few tools!!! Finally! Spent $2 ( he only want a dollar, gave a little extra for his trouble) the two without handles, more on the handled one in a moment..also in my rust cover paws was this pile of bits, and that wee screwdriver, the larger screwdrivers came from a box, the same box that handled hammer was in . That cost a major league $15! Now why would I spend that much for a cheap, plastic tool box? Well when you strain to lift a FULL tool box.... Box didn't have a single ratchet in it. Might make some use out of the rest of the items.....you think? On the way out of that little town ( three other stops, NADA) stopped at one last one....found one hammer worth buying... For banging out dents? Went on to the house, had to pick up the GrandBrats, and one other person. Dropped that one off at her job, and headed west. Storm had rooled through the next town, and we only found one worth stopping at. Boss found a few things On to the next town.....looked around, most were closing up, but we did find one place worth stopping at. One GrandBRATS even got a bicycle! And a few toys for the smaller one. As for me.....HEHEHEHE $2.50 got me these four items. Stanley No. 923 10in brace, Thorsen 1/2" ratchet, Buck Brothers 1/8" sash chisel , and some sort of nail puller. On the way home stopped to find a couple handles . TSC only had any hand tool handles, only for hammers at that. $5.99+ Tax. Got home, and installed the new handle on the old hammer Checked the mail box...package for me! Inside was a stanle spokeshave, and a handle-less 1/2" Fulton chisel. Looks like I fire up the lathe again. And....to think, there is still one more day of those sales. Somewhere around 40......Starts @ 0800hrs, ZULU. Better go get some rest....
  10. A store in Huntsville OH. Stopped in the town for some cheap gas for the van ($2.18/gal.) and decided to check the place out, again A #6 plane on a shelf.....unknown name. $25. Meh...pass for now A #5 wannabe with a "Master Mechanic" decal on the lever cap? $25? Pass A #5 Craftsman, with a keyhole saw handle on the rear deck? $15? Pass A Trans. plane, unkown # because someone had sawn off both ends right at the point the upper iron works start....$25? Not a chance 2 broken Shelton block planes and a #110 wannabe...didn't even bother to lok for a price. Yep, that bad. Now, the good stuff? The hacksaw is a Union Hardware Co. of Toppenington, CONN. The bit is a MY-T-Co 3/4" auger bit The pliers are a trimmer from Seymour Smith & Son Original #119 . All of these were a $1 a piece. There is also an expansion bit, still in the rehab center...it was also a dollar bill. Then, there was this thing A Disston USA D-23, with an almost readable etch. Has a slight, fixable kink near the end. Hardware was brass plated. Spent a whopping $3 for it. Needs a bit more rehab, but should be ok.... Missed out on a "Multi-family Yard sale" on the way home....maybe next time...
  11. A little envelope, between what was in it and S&H, cost me $5. A bit to drive slotted screws with a brace. Made either for or by MERIT. 4" long, from tip to tip. BIG screws! set it up in another $5 item from the last yard sale of last year It has "Stanley Rule & Level Co. on the chuck. Might be at least 100 years old? With "VICTOR" stamped on one arm, and No. 935 8in. on the other side of that arm. About 1907-1917? Been slowly lightning the tool box at work, one lunchbox at a time, the latest "haul"... this includes a lot of brass tools, not brass -plated, but solid brass. That pair of slip joint pliers is solid brass. Brass is the preferred way to work inside an injection machine's mold. Won't make scratches in the cavities. Putty knife is also brass. Even a brass screwdriver! Next Thursday morning, i intend to wheel that almost empty toolbox out the door, and load it into my van. Med Leave, and vacation until May 15, then I am retired. Right now, I am just tired...
