  1. Made this couple years ago and have used when needing to stamp some metal with numbers or letters. Buddy of mine borrowed it and brought it back with this request, "I want one." Yeah like I remember how I pulled this miracle off!!! The handle was assembled in square form, two magnets on each side at the bulge. These are string enough to hold the die in place and not let it fall out when being used. I used a carriage bolt to provide a straight path to the stamp die. Once the dry fit was good I turned the handle. Works well.
  2. I used to be a foreign car mechanic, so I have a wide variety of tools. However. I have found that using one of my three my drill presses to feed a thread tap assures me of it being straight. Probably not news to anyone, but thought I would offer it anyway! By the way, I have four cabinet saws, eight routers, four bandsaws, two wood lathes, and I usually keep them set up for different operations. Just bragging, I guess!

  5. I was faced with cutting hand-holds in a number of boxes. While the typical approach is to drill two holes and connect them with a jig saw, I never had much luck with that and dreaded the task of drilling, sawing, sanding and routing 72 holes. I used a jig similar to ones I've used before. I simply cut a strip out of a piece of 1/2"plywood that determined the height of the hand-hold. Then I glued the plywood back together to create the width I wanted. I added a stop to set the distance between the top of the box and the top of the hand-hold. Since the boxes were of a couple of different widths and I must use it again in the future, I did not put a stop on the other side, but simply marked the center line of the box and lined it up with the center line of the jig and clamped in place. Then using a plunge router with a bushing and mortising bit routed out what amounts to a large through mortise. Use a roundover bit on inside and outside of hand-hold You could also use a top-piloted bearing bit if you wish. I don't mind the square-ish ends, but if you prefer the more traditional rounded ends, just round over the inserts before you glue them back up.
  6. This was new to me. Worth a try.
  7. First off, I have two "orphans" to figure out what to do with Don't have any saw plates that match, the holes patterns are different than the plates I still have... Warranted Superior Medallions. Not sure what to do with these.... However, I did find one match for another handle.. As I have an Atkins handle.. Holes match! Need to clean the rusty plate and see IF there is an etch.....and see IF I can find out what model this was. Might have a bit of time this week?
  8. present for my BIL's birthday next month. mahogany handles, about 6-1/2" long.
  9. A couple of years ago, I made my wife a set of 12 ergonomically designed crochet hooks. Then I made a rack for them. She will never use them all but she wanted all of them. Long story short, she misplaced 2 of her favorites. That is where she says "Can you make me two more?" As luck would have it, I had two spare ( less than perfect) handles. I was able to salvage one today, will try the other tomorrow. They were all made of exotic wood scraps.
  10. A friend had several trees taken down recently and set me up with a few chunks of hickory firewood. So today I pulled out the mallet and splitting wedges and the big bandsaw and cut them into 2 1/2 and 3 inch slabs. All the ends got sealed with my potpourri crock pot candle wax. The shop smelled good all day too! They are stacked. Now the wait is on for drying. Not quite an entire hand tool post so forgive me for that. Just raw material manufacture for future chisel repairs etc. Inagural run for the big bandsaw too! I think it and I are going to be friends!
  11. Well, the Stanley No.888 wannabe is getting a bit heavy, hurts the hand that carries it. Picked a pair of handles up, and something to hang a few tools up. First, the handles.. Brass plated thingys. I used that Vix bit to drill a few pilot holes for the screws. Each end got one handle....I tried to straddle the cracks, and avoided putting a screw into one...barely. yep, this is the end that cracked when I glued the case up. handles just have that plate, and a bent wire, but it makes things easier to carry around. Now, about some tool hangers....picked up a package of "cup hooks". Figured I could attach a hook, bend it a bit, and hang a few tools up on the inside Two screwdrivers. The top one "locks" the bottom one in place. Bottom of the box is getting a tad full. Handle for the saw is sticking up, Chisel handle, a square, gear from a eggbeater drill, a couple auger bits. There is a 16 oz hammer under that stuff, and a 10" Cresent wrench. Couple other chisels, and a nail set . That blue handle? I also tried to hang a couple more toys...er...TOOLS Mini-wrecking bar, and a pair of pliers. Yes, those are planes back there. Somewhere, there is also a 6' zigzag ruler, a 3/8" cold chisel, and a 3/8" gimlet bit. other side of this box.. Planes are a #220 block plane, and a #3 York pitch bench plane. Rest of the stuff in here.. A Push drill, a couple of the auger bit, another view of the #1220 Eggbeater drill. Yes that is a pipe wrench ( as listed in Stanley's ad) and the oil stone. have since added a stanley 645 brace, as the eggbeater doesn't handle the auger bits too well. And, yes, the lids still are able to close and latch.... Despite the fact this thing is over 50 pounds in weight! needed a spot to sit this thing at.....happen to have just the thing.. A pine table I built from resawn 4x4s. Even the finishes match. Table seem to be holding up fairly well. I didn't have the 18" Stanley level for this box. I can't imagine carrying this box from jobsite to jobsite...be too tired to work when i got there. IF anyone wants, I could post an "inventory" of what is all in the little box...

    The completed fire starter. I think the grain on this piece is really cool with all the worm trails
  13. From the album: Handles

    The butt end of the fire starter, complete with compass. If you look close, you can see the dots in the wood where worms traveled through it, leaving dots of decayed crumbled sawdust.
