  1. So I've recently Purchased TWO different sharpening systems. I bought a bench grinder that was low RPM. As well as the PSI Chisel Mate Plus from PSI Woodworking. I received it this afternoon it was a bit on the late side. How ever I've opened it up and set it up on the lathe tested it out on a couple of gouges and chisels. Seems to work quite well RECOMMENDED USE WITH VARIABLE SPEED LATHES. Its quite simple to install it goes right on to the spindle head of your wood lathe its already set for a 1 inch 8 tpi spindle head. Works with the Delta lathe wonderfully. This system a
  2. Laundry Detail to night, had to kill a little time for the dryer to get done.. cross cut and ripped a few pieces of 1/2" poplar... 2 longer ones for the sides... The other two are for the ends....wanted them all the same width..so.. meet Junior....Junior Jack plane, that is. Boards were a tad too short for the longer Jacks...been a while..had to back off the cut quite a bit, from the last time it was used. Chisel selection? We'll see which ones get into the case. Depends on HOW I lay them in there, and what holders I cobble up....1/4" plywood
  3. I'm not quite sure exactly what this is here in the photo but this is a really nice piece of wood, I don't want it to go to waste. How ever when I started carving it down to round I started noticing the wobble effect yet again. I proceeded to stop the lathe. I was positive to get everything lined up properly this time, even too full passes to make sure I wasn't starting and stopping between cuts. Then I came across another issue directly in the wood. I'm not sure if it is a dry spot but it is becoming to be a pain and I think that is primarily what may be causing the wobble effect on the
  4. Whatever poisonous garbage the Chinese are putting on Harbor frieght chisels is dangerous stuff. I smoked just a little of it off welding the bases of their 4" brick chisels. The stuff made my shop all smoky and like when one burns rubber there were weird floaties of black goo floating in the air. Then the sickness set in. My throat became terribly raw and I have sinus issues. I've never had a paint do this. I can't even guess what they used.
  5. I was asked in 2015 to bring some old tools in for a presentation as part of our local library centennial celebration. While not an expert, I am somewhat versed in the subject as a hobby and so I presented for about 15 minutes that night about tools at the turn of the century. Fast forward 4 years and I was asked to return. I talked for 90 minutes on basic hand tool design and use, makers marks, electrolysis rust removal, refinishing and whatever else came out in questions. My 11 y.o. Daughter helped me at the first showing and spent 10 minutes talking with the crowd about her planes and
  6. Checked the Mailbox today...just bills....turned around to go back inside the front door....sitting BEHIND the chair on the front porch ( out of sight from "Porch Pirates"?) was a brown box....came from The Mesa, AZ! Gene Howe had sent a package to me. Got the box opened up, removed all the packing supplies, including some blue tape... Used as edge protectors..worked just fine. Mortise chisels! Gene wanted to know IF I could make use of these. I do believe so! A HUGE THANK YOU!! to Mr. Howe. Will try to use these on the next project.
  7. October already but the weather is more like early September. At least it isn't raining! Please checkout @John Morris's announcement concerning the Easy Wood Tools ornaments. Let's all pitch in and help load up the Easy Wood Tools lobby Christmas tree! You don't have to be the most experienced turner to create some neat items for their tree. Here's a couple of really easy spindle type items- Remember, you don't have to paint/decorate the turnings. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools told me they have volunteers who can do that.
  8. Got home with a stack of forms, to apply as a "First Families and Pioneers of Logan County, Ohio. May take a week to complete those...All the way back to the 1800s when Ohio wasn't yet a state.. Got bored (dangerous) so headed to the shop to putter around....decided to make a bunch of lines on some pine scrap. One of the lines was a circle...took that to the bandsaw.. Meh, will just have to do. All the other lines were for either a hole, or not a hole..next, decided to drill a few of the holes...drill press was set up for rehab work.. We have ways..
  9. Have ya'll heard of Jim Bode Tools, ya, pretty cool. They are advertised in the MWTCA Gristmill. Have fun! https://www.jimbodetools.com/collections/whats-new
  10. On the way to Huber heights, OH thursday..stopped at the store in Brandt, OH...spend a whopping $5 on a pair of chisel shaped objects... Skinny one is 3/4", wider one is 1''....nothing special? No handles, one has a mushroom growing on it....bend at the socket was made that way...even saw a trace of a name stamp on the bent socket... MIGHT need a bit of sharpening? Well, got busy with these two, while the stain was drying....Beltsander to remove the mushroom, and a chunk out of my knuckle...DNA on the new sander Dug out the wooden plug inside

  12. Took a day off from the shop today.....yard sales were a bust....too nice of a day to go into the shop....Hauled the Boss, and my son off on a Road Trip... Springfield, OH has an Antique Mall.....HUGE one.....8 big rooms of stuff....Number one rule...IF a tool is INSIDE a glass case...take a look, but keep on walking. There was this one stall.....looked like someone had emptied both a Sears and a woodcraft tool section, and just piled it up on a BUNCH of shelves....Dug through over 100+ chisels....looking for a couple wood handled ones I could use.. The wide one is 1
  13. First off, I am not cheap,.....merely frugal... Picked a few things today, spent about $8.50.... I have a complete Metric set of these 3/8" drive sockets. My son needed a set of SAE Deep well sockets. $5 Original price was $1.99, yard sale price was $0.50 . I will use these more to clean up any "details" a beading plane may leave. NO, I do NOT carve... Bag #1, and.. Dollar for the two of them, gave me nine hinges....only Bag#2 had screws, though...wound up with three styles, three each.. I wonder where I can use these....
  14. Anybody use them? What's your experience? Good, bad, ugly?
  15. Not really a walk about, unless you count walking from the van, across the street and through the store...wound up spending a bit more than I planned on...$15! So, what "treasures" was inside the bag? Eight smallish chisels. The Red handles are Millers Falls ( stamped on the handles) and used to be a part of the No. 106 carving set. There are three Buck Brothers chisels, a Spear & Jackson gouge...and something by Schmidt & Co.? A "V" groover, a skew, and a fish tail....sharp as can be, and no rust ( RATS!!) Again, sharp as can be,
  16. Well, lets see, got out the Saw Vise Squad.. Ol' No. 1 was set up and used.. As this old saw needed some work on the teeth. Saw file was sent along.. As this was it's second saw, we had Back Up available.. But the file was no rookie, and came through without any problems , will get the back up file for another time Decided to at least give these usual suspects a chance to show what they could do.. 6 ppi, filed rip. Got out a 1 x 1 pine scrap, as a test.. But, it turned into a Crime Scene. Saw was hard to start, but once
  17. Noticed an old drawer alongside the curb, awaiting Trash Pickup Day......seemed a shame to let it go... Not much to look at....may refinish the front, shine the knobs up.... Maybe build a small case for around it? Might be something I could use it for? Laid out some tools, time to lay out some thin pieces of pine scrap. Still working on the spacing, but... The larger of the chisels in this group. The other half of the box of chisels was too long for this sort of thing, all the shorter ones did fit in, though. Just laying things out, right n
  18. Well, went past the Home Depot on the way home, thought I could get enough lumber for the drawers......Gold Plated Pine meant I could only get enough for three drawers. Got the lumber home, and into the shop....about wore me out. Thought I'd leave them until morning.....nope. Went back down to the shop, measured for a few crosscuts. Since I was still a bit worn out, I didn't get down a handsaw.. 6-1/2" Skil saw will work nicely. Got a front, a back, and a pair of sides cut out....had just under a foot of scrap left.....and then I went back upstairs...thinking I was done...
  19. If you're like me and keep chisels in a drawer and also buy them at yard sales, they need a chisel guard. Here's a no-cost way to do it. Get an empty water or milk bottle (1 gal HDPE plastic) Heat the side with a heat gun. After a few seconds, the plastic will turn from translucent white to clear. While still hot, plunge the chisel tip in and turn it to cover the tip. Pull it out with the plastic glob on. With a gloved hand, shape the end to cover the bezel and tip. Let cool.
  20. Worked for a little bit this morning, waiting on my helper to finally get up out of bed...Camera died, too. Took the van to my Mom's place, where we could work on it inside, out of the thunderstorms.....Tasks? Front and rear brake pads needed changed, tires rotated. After all of that, then come home and do a bit more wood work... That front wheel is a perfect fit. Legs are now all the same thickness, saw marks are gone, curves look better... Layout tools to mark a dovetail.... Carried a few lines done the sides, gathered a few other tools Knifeline c
  21. I suppose this should have gone over in the Turners section....but, had some wood working to do.. Snuck back down the stairs. Hmmm, there was a lathe sitting over there, last time I saw it.....a little moving around of other stuff... Well, well, lookee what I found...Even found some chisels that might go with it.. These were stashed under a pile of other..stuff. I even have room to work in there... Hmmm lathe isn't a pedal powered one? Guess I will just have to make do.. Got the blank out of the clamps, bandsawed the excess stuff off, set it up in t
  22. Ok, thanks to a $2 purchase over the weekend, and a package from Okinawa, Japan...I now have the biggie chisels to ad to my set of Mortise Chisels.. The short one is a Japanese 12mm ( 1/2"?) and the longer one is a Buck Brothers 3/8" chisel Someone had ground the bevel BADLY on the BB chisel.. I haven't touched the Japanese one, no need. The BB one will take a while to regrind. needs a 25 Main bevel, with a 35 secondary at the edge. They had it at 45 degrees! Backs are different as well.. Japanese chisels tend to have a hollow , the BB is supposed to
  23. Well, cleaned a few up for Polite Company to view, handled a small chisel to make it usable. Lets start with these..thngs What you see here cost me about $10 today... 3/32" nail set, a 3/16" drill bit ( Craftsman!) and a counter sink bit with no name. $0.75 for these.. A pair of Millers Falls 3/4" wide chisels, one with a fully readable logo. Permaloid handles...$1 each $1 for this block plane iron, with a Stanley "triangle" logo. Might have a plane for this... How many tri squares have a level in the handle? Must be why this was
  24. Forward, and at one one backwards. Someday, I might just learn how to do woodworking? Morning started out...meh....got a couple things done on the lid's frame.. Bench has been beat up, lately. Needed something for the chisels to bounce off of. There is a second chisel there...because.. It fit in there a bit better, got one end done...I thought.. Including both ends of the long sides, and one end piece. Then the internet had all kinds of problems that I just had to fix.....needed to go out and BUY ( yikes!) new phone line and new CAT5 line.

    Just a Fun Image

    From the album: Big Ash Mallet

    Here is a fun picture showing the hand tools I used to help make this mallet, it took a combination of my table saw to make the slots, the shoulder plane to clean up the slots, the miter saw to cut the blanks at 5 degrees, and my hand tools to shape and make it interesting.
