  1. While doing a bit of clean up in the shop, while waiting on the gas meters to be switched out ( inside for a new outside one) found this...thing.. The brass end has a logo of sorts... U.S. A.A.F. While down at the other end... There is a N O 2. There is other markings around the other side...from what I can make out.. GEO WORTHINGTON CO BUFFALO NY USA Now, about that chuck... Even my smallest chuck keys look HUGE, compared to this chuck...not sure what size jacob key this takes, or where one might be found..chuck works fine, just can't lock a bit into it... had to clean the rust spots off, oil things up a bit. So...what is this thing from WW2
  2. From the album: Simple little Cherry Box

    Showing the hinges used, and a bit of grain, too
  3. I get Tom Fidgen's Newsletter in my inbox and I always look forward to it. Tom is a hand made by hand tool guy, long story short, great stuff, beautiful work, I have been following him for along time. In the most recent newsletter he is advertising his new Two Handled Rasps, these are beautiful tools, I want them, I gotta have them, don't know how yet, but some day I'll have them in my shop. These tools just make sense, with their two handles, stitched rasp, these are made for accurate stock removal. I have no horse in the game here, I just love beautiful tools is all. Here they are. Just thought I'd share them.
  4. This came into the Restore today and i thought I would share it with everyone. Yes, that's my fat finger(s) holding it. What you can't really see is that each piece is marked/numbered and they all stack together. Nifty tool. And yes, it's for a specialized kind of "woodworking".
  5. Maybe I dreamed this- I have been known to have very strange dreams- but I was sure I've seen something like this. The ones I remembered have a threaded post on the bottom. About .25" diameter and maybe 1" tall. Even created this image to see if Google Images could locate it. All it found were bullets- Thanks
  6. Put on a jacket that hadn't been worn in a while and, this was in a pocket. Have no idea where it came from...or when it got put in the pocket. It appears to be an unused #8 Phillips head but, those machine threads have me stymied. Anybody know how/why it's used?
  7. Found this hammer head at an estate sale and bought it for the novelty of it. I have this hammer and thought I may be able to share the handle with is and treat it as a kit. They both have 3/8" fine threads but the screw driver was too long for the new ball peen head. There is only 2" hollowed out in the stem so I decided to make a handle for it. I found this piece of brass from a candle stick I saved from a previous project. As luck would have it it had 3/8" fine threads already in the end of it. Stuff does go right sometimes. Mounted it on the metal lathe and turned it down to 7/16". Found a suitable piece of Mahogany, drilled it and epoxied the two together. Turned it on the wood lathe and gave it a CA finish. Cut the head off a fine thread bolt to use as a connector to mate the hammer head and handle together. Then I got the idea to cut a tip off a Phillips screw driver, drill a hole in the 3/8" connector and mate the two together. So now the handle has a Phillips screw driver when twisted apart. I enjoy piddling around with projects like this. Gets the creative juices flowing.
  8. I seem to have a few of the squares in use...some big, some tiny... Maybe Moody can suggest a name for some of these....the HUGE one in the back IS a Stanley...10" of steel blade. The rest? The "Three Diamonds" square was from my dad's tool box. This little fellow is a Swanson 6" combo. Just to show how big some of these are. Been using a few of these in the Chest Of Drawers project.. So...any guesses about who made what? Rosewood,Brass, and Steel Co.?
  9. This thing is finally done and packed for shipment. The walnut and brass elongated ovals on the doors are to cover my goof. Attached hinges on the wrong side. I kinda like them so, I made two more as escutcheons for my door pulls. A better shot of the pulls The drawer sides are grooved for wooden glides. The blue stuff is on swiveling wings. Those are earring do-hickies. The drawers are lined with the same stuff.
  10. Got a packet of corner brackets. Needed to make a few pilot holes for the #1 screws.. All kinds of toys in the background. Screws are TINY.. And, since the electric screwdriver doesn't have a charged up battery, I had to use this old Stanley... Made a "chain" out of hook & eyes.. Hmmm, maybe a better look? Hooks have been trimmed down, and rebent a bit. Used the old pair of pliers from my days of tying rebar for a living. Top hook swings down, into the same eyelet as the next hook below it. The others just have their own eyelet to use. Have sanded to first coat back a bit, and need a new brush. The more "redder" Witch's Brew will be a top coat. Knee is sore from mowing the yard yesterday, so I think I will just sit a spell today.
  11. Awhile back, picked a Butcher's saw for a dollar bill.....finally got around to rehabbing it up... The bolts were, at one time, nickle plated.....shined up, they became Brass. Guess the plating wasn't all that good? The slots weren't all wallered out, was hard to find a screwdriver skinny enough. Handle has been sanded back to bare wood, then a coat of my Famous ( or, Infamous) Witch's Brew was applied. Frame was wire wheeled back to shiny. Wing nut was removed, cleaned up, and oiled the threads. Out in front,I am not sure if this is a pin, a broken off thumbscrew, or a broken bolt. No way too remove, or the sawblade. Saw cuts with a drift to the left.. Guess I won't use it as a rip saw....not really sure WHAT I'll do with it, at the moment. I doubt IF I can cut up some pork chops with it.

    Back side, showing the brass hinges. Went and added slotted head screws, instead of phillips ones.
  13. Last week I ran across this nice looking old plumb bob in a leather holder. It was at an auction and has a price tag on it of $100.00. I didn't pay the 100.00 and I love the auction! This is a "Globe 14" made in the USA by Eugene Dietzgen Company of Chicago. It has a steel tip that can be changed. It is brass and has a very nice patina. The Case is made by Keuffel & Esser Company. I like the leather case but I don't believe it is the case that originally went with this plumb bob. The case probably dates to around the 1950's or 1960's. Still a nice case and protects the plumb bob. This is considered a rare version because of the shape or so I have read.. Well It is still ready to be used, but will likely retire to the display cabinet. More Patriot Picking coming soon!
