  1. 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.

    Yet another rehab?

    Seems this beat up saw came home with me.... No back on a backsaw? Plate had almost as many dips and curves as the roads down there.. maybe the handle could be saved? Well, this saw has a loose handle, "bolts" are rivets. Unable to tighten things up....I wonder... Holes look close......maybe get rid of the riveted handle? Might just work.... Had to chop up the handle, and cut the rivets off. Shined the brass a bit.. Have filled that little hole where someone used to put a hanger loop through. So, after a few adjustments of a hole or two, adjust the heel of the plate for a btter fit.. Looks more like a Disston No. 4 Backsaw, now. Have filled in some holes, been trying to clean the wood up.. ready for another 90+yrs? 14" long, 11 ppi. Cost so far? NADA.....

    Tool Handle

    I bought an Easy Hollower by Easy Wood Tools some months ago. I bought it without the handle with the idea of making something special for it. I figured I should make the tool removable since there are other hollowing tools available for future purchase possibilities. I had a piece of 1.5" diameter steel rod out in the metal shop so I cut a 4" piece off and took it to the metal lathe and drilled a .5" hole 3" deep for the tool tang. I stuck the end with the hole in the chuck and turned 3" of the shaft down to .875" (7/8) diameter to be inserted into the wood handle. I also drilled and tapped a hole for a .25" set screw. Here is the tool with the insert attached. Time for the handle. Took an 2"X2"X22" piece of Purple Heart and chucked it into the lathe. I drilled a .875" hole in the end for the insert and turned the end to fit a brass bushing on it for support and installed it. Turned the rest of the handle for a total handle length of 18" and with the tool mounted the overall length is 27.5". Next up is a project putting it to use. That will be soon and in another thread.

    Socket chisel handles

    How about a broken sledge hammer handle turned into chisel handles. Also a pretty good example of how not to use a lathe but I am learning.https://youtu.be/5dYnNZQn8s8

    An Olde Fulton plane

    Last spring, I picked an old #3 sized plane at a garage sale.....they had just brought it up out of a damp cellar......yellow, fuzzy mold on the wood parts, everything else was a rusty mess. Spent a dollar for it, thinking I could at least get a few parts out of it..... Yeah.....anyway, got things cleaned up. Wood parts on the plane went into the trash can, they were "punky" and gummmy. Got it almost cleaned up, and found some other handles.. And set it aside for awhile......Kept thinking about the rear handle....this one wasn't setting right, bolt didn't match the top of the handle....Hmmm.. Well, today, I swapped out handles, but left the bolts alone...almost. OEM bolt was bent in a few wrong directions. Finally just clamped just the base into the end vise, cranked the non-brass shaft in as far as it would go......was still too long for the "new" handle. A little time on the grinder to remove a couple turns of threads, campfer the end and attach the shaft to the base, again. I'd check where the end was coming through, and how the bottom of the handle was sitting....cuss a bit, pull handle back off, handle to adjust the shaft's "attitude" a bit, try again......gecloser, but didn't want to rush and break something... Finally got the new handle to sit flat on the base, with the bolt centered at the top.....and still too long.....grrrr, grinder to remove a bit off the top. Check the brass nut to make sure it threads back on....ok, close enough... Bolt sets better, handle sits flat on the base, and doesn't wobble around. Front knob was loose ( again..) and tightened that up, too....gave the plane a few try-outs and.... something was quite right. Things were sitting a bit crooked in the cutting room. Finally, I just reset the frog. Took a couple tries to get that the way it was supposed to be. Looked at the iron-chipbreaker.... Big curve going on, not letting the iron sit flat on the frog's face....Took the two apart...ah, chipbreaker was at fault, iron went right back to straight. Re-ground the curved part of the chipbreaker.....still not right.. OK, we getting serious here.....laid the offending part on the bench, hammer to knock the curved area down a bit. Tried it out, bolt that holds the two together worked the way it was supposed to. Test fit...lateral lever fits better....didn't need a hammer to adjust for tilt. Tried the assembled plane on some white oak scrap.. Not perfect, but it is close enough. Next time, I'll have the sharpening gear IN the shop, and I can close up a gap in the chipbreaker, as well. Since I was working on a #3 sized plane, might as well check out the one Sears replaced the Fulton with... Made by Millers Falls as a No. 8, sold at Sears as a No.3C. ( smooth sole?) Looks like it will need a bit of time on the stones, as well. Label on handle says "Craftsman Tools" and has a fancy lever cap Gold coloured even. Have a Millers Falls No.8 and a Stanley/ Wards Master Quality #3 to also check out. The Fulton? Was made by Sargent. Anyone want a rusty brace/drill? The ratchet doesn't, the top knob is still frozen in place. The rust is gone from the outside.....the sweep handle is punky soft. I think it is an 8" sweep. Cleaned up.....chuck works fine, ratchet doesn't. Parts drill...

    Off center handle

    This is my latest attempt at an off-center turning to produce an oval shaped tool handle. This was done out of ash. Be kind, I am still learning, as can plainly be seen.
  9. Since my brother and his wife retired, they are spending more time experimenting with various cuisines. I though I'd get them a micro-plane/grater for the kitchen. Rather than just buy the completed item, I ordered the planer/grater and made the handle. In the past, I sent them various kitchen/serving utensils so this handle would reflect the previous designs. The biggest disappointment, with this particular grater, was that the handle was designed to be permanently attached to the grater using epoxy. In my opinion, handles should be detachable so that the metal portions can be adequately cleaned without damaging the handle. Fortunately, the threads on the grater were standard 3/8 x 16 so creating a better solution was pretty easy. I started with a piece of maple, squared into a turning blank. Then drilled the end of the blank to accept a 3/8 x 16 brass threaded insert- this will allow the grater to removed and placed into the dish washer. The insert was installed on the drill press using a shop made bottle stopper mandrel. The insert can be seen in this photo- The handle blank was then prepared to receive contrasting walnut inserts. The insert slots were cut on the table saw using a simple angle jig to hold the blank in the proper orientation. The blank is cut four times, using a single pass thru the blade. The depth of the cut is arbitrary but between 1/4 and 1/3 the thickness of the blank produces a nice pattern. The inserts are glued into the saw kerfs. the inserts are 1/8" thick and just long enough to extend past the end of the kerfs at either end. Once the glue dries, the inserts are trimmed to be flush with the blank sides. I trimmed these on the band saw. They don't have to be perfect. Trimming just makes the turning process a little easier. Now it's just a matter of turning the handle. I used the bottle stopper mandrel and a Jacobs chuck to mount the blank in the head stock. The inserts create a "twist" pattern as the blank is rounded Shaped the blank Finished with a bunch of layers of wipe on poly And the grater screwed into the handle Now I need to make something for my Mom.

    In an answer...

    On another site I float around in. There is a topic about the handle on a hatchet.....Got to thinking....yeah....I might have one of those strange tools.. No, it didn't come out of one of these tubs.. Lovely looking bunch? The one that is sitting in the Tool Tote at the moment, MIGHT be a bit better.. Used to be able to read the "gold" lettering on the wooden handle.....Official Scout Camp Axe Has a brass screw, takes a flat bladed screwdriver, to adjust the wedge for tightness. Why it has a nail puller notch, who knows.. The best part of the Hatchet? Is these two "logos" stamped into the side of the head. The rectangle one has "PLUMB" inside it. The other? Something about "Be Prepared" Other side is rather plain, though... MIGHT need a bit of stone work on the edge? Near as I can find out, this one was my Late FIL's. He never did throw anything away.. Whether to sharpen up and use ( have a Fiskars) or, just oil it up and display it...somewhere..

    Need Some Advice

    A buddy just dropped off a Buck Brothers gouge that needs a handle. TUrning it is no problem but I need to get an idea of the proportions of the original handle- which is missing. This is what I have- If anyone can direct me to a site that would have a picture of this particular chisel, I'd be grateful!

    Old eggbeater gets a handle

    Picked a eggbeater a few weeks ago.. Well the handle was missing the end cap, and there were a few cracks in the handle.. Decided to just remove the bad stuff, and add a better handle, but where to get one? Ah, this strange tool had something I could use.. I can drive that handle off the "speeder bar" screwdriver. Took a bit, finally got it off. The rest of the speeder bar went into the spares box. Took a bit of work to get the old handle off the drill, as they use a pin through the whole end...and it didn't want to be driven out..that is why they make grinders for. Anyway, threaded the "new" handle onto the drill.. Looks a bit better? May or may not pin it in place, right now it is nice and tight. I just now need to make a side handle....someday.

    Nice chisel...wrong handle?

    Sometime last Yard sale season....I picked a strange looking chisel up for..maybe fifty cents had a cigar band style label, or did at one point in time. Looked like either a Japanese chisel or a Butcher....Handle was splitting at the tang's end. Got to cleaning this "thing" up.. Found some markings on that flat area.......C E JENNINGS with an arrowhead under that, and then a "Made in USA" below that. I also got the back all polished and flat. Should do for now. well a Jennings handle for a tanged chisel did NOT look like this handle.. And, at first, I was going to just cut a hunk off of an Ash hammer handle I had made ( awaiting a head for it).. Then I saw a handle down in the spares box. Seemed to look a bit easier to use, and was closer to what was on the chisel when new decided to use it instead, and save the ash handle in case I break a hammer handle someday. While cleaning all that black junk off of the steel of the chisel....sandpaper slipped off the end.....thumb merely bounced off. Looked down at the thumb.....had a nice slice, and it was leaking, to boot....OW! Got the tang all nicely cleaned up, didn't have a torch to heat it up....drove the tang in anyway, trying to drive it straight... Well, still about 1/4" from seating all the way in....try again tomorrow. As for the old handle? Had an old "Corsair" 3/4" chisel that needed a handle......cleaned the blade up, and installed it into the "old" handle. Nose is full of dust, as I ground the end a bit to match the Corsair's blade. Sharpened it up, and can use it as a "beater chisel" Thumb is healing...there will be a mark. Fifty cent chisel? handle was from one of those "Junk Box" things at a yard sale. Will post a completed chisel picture later. Without cutting a finger this time...
  16. Started out with a saw plate that came in the mail.. 12" long, 9ppi, two holes for bolts. Worked on straightening the tooth line, had two smallish kinks. Got to thinking about maybe a handle, to make saw a little easier? Came up with these two items....one was just a cut-down nest-of-saws handle, the other was what I sketched out on a slab of white oak. I think it looks a bit better. Router bits to start to shape it down, beltsander to sand away all the marks from the DULL router bit. Whole LOT of sanding going on... Finally, it felt good enough in the hand. Clamped it into the vise, used a backsaw to cut the kerf for the saw plate. Fitted the plate to the handle, time for a finish? Coat of Witch's Brew. Nice way to hold it while the finish dries. Other side? Still have to round up a few drill bits, to drill two holes... As I have two chrome bolts to install. Don't have a medallion, not really needed. Just playing around with a slab of Oak...

    Odd screwdriver handle..ID?

    Last labour day at the Tractor Fest...picked this little guy for about a dollar bill Yeah. The black part will retract, to allow you to change bits. Lots of scratches on the silver part. It does not rotate. Any tip with a single notch will work. The double ones will not lock into the handle. The brown part is not wood. Looks like a cap was installed on the end? Looks like a brown Bakelite. Tried a more "modern" tip.. As long as they are longer than the ones that fit into a tip holder. Even most tip holders will work. Thought it MIGHT be a Tung-Sol brand...but all they made was radio vacumn tubes. Will try to bring out what those scratches say, IF I can......anyone see a handle like this before?

    View of the end (bow?) showing how the sides splay out. Handle does not go all the way to the floor. Two finish nails hold the handle, no glue.

    Custom Tap Handle

    Hi Everyone This is a Custom Beer Tap Handle of the Hamilton Crest I just completed. Overall dimensions are 8 1/2" tall x 3.75" wide The Intarsia consists of 60 pieces from 9 different woods. The biggest challenge on this project (besides working with lots of little pieces) was bending the 2 ebony bands. I cut the ebony into 3/16" x 1/16" strips then using a woodburning iron heated the strips on the shaft of the iron and formed the circular shapes until they fit. Great trick if you need to make curved shapes. The dime shows the scale of the pieces. Challenging little project

    Had to fire up the old lathe tonight

    Picked up a tool box today. inside this $2 tool box was a few wrenches ( still cleaning them) and a couple chisels.. The long one, with the mushroom end needed a handle, AFTER I got rid of the mushroomed part. Had some old Barn Wood scrap, About 2x2 almost square. Trimmed the ends of the blank a bit, found the center on each end. Drove the drive spur into one end, and round the blank off. Then marked where the fancy parts of the new handle would be. Small gouge and a skew chisel to complete. Then a test fit, grind the excess off, test fit, until the handle would drive into the socket part of the chisel Oh, BTW also cleaned up the 1-1/2" wide chisel, but, it didn't need a new handle. The T.H. Wilhelm 1/2" firmer/mortise chisel now has a decent looking handle. Lines were made with the skew chisel. This is one LONG chisel That is a 12" long combo square sitting behind it. Wood was free, the chisels were almost free, That tool box was just $2, and had 8 wrenches in it, a nail set, and these two chisels. Might just be a decent yard sale day.
