  1. My son approached me last month and asked if we could build a desk for his bedroom for this upcoming school year, he is planning on a ton of homework and being in 10th grade and all, the work is going to get harder and harder. He asked me to help him build the desk just before I went into the hospital back in early June, I was in bad shape for the first few weeks coming out of the hospital and meanwhile he was asking me when we can start the desk, bless his little soul and heart, as crappy as I was feeling, he felt that ol Dad could get up and go and power through it all with a desk build. I had to put it off, with the way I was feeling, it wasn't even safe for me to be out there in the shop, and the fact that he asked me during that time period, and asked a few more times, indicates I was putting on a pretty positive attitude show for the family, despite how I was feeling. So, now that I am feeling pretty ok, much better than before, me and the boy went to the lumber yard and picked up a few cherry boards. The desk will be cherry, with walnut legs, he wanted two tone. Actually he wanted a Walnut desk, but once we got to the yard, the walnut was just too expensive, so he came around to cherry. We have a budget and we needed to stay within. And it so happens that I had some left over walnut so we'll incorporate the walnut into the mainly cherry desk somehow, thinking possibly the legs will be walnut. I had my boy rip down the boards on the Shopsmith, he did pretty good, burned the cherry on one edge and I then I took the second board and showed him how to use moderate steady feed rate and also keeping it against the fence. Once we had the boards sized, we chose one edge to join, the boards will be cut in half, and folded against each-other and glued edge to edge. I showed my son Jeroid how to handle the big No. 8C, he knows how mostly as he worked with me often years ago, but many years have gone by since he's been by my side in the shop, so picking up the plane again took some practice, fortunately we left the board wide by an 1/8" because I knew Jeroid was going to need practice room to get the edge right. Jeroid took a few passes on the edge and did pretty good, he had a few issues keeping the plane in constant contact with the edge, but he figured it out, I just stood back and let him error, and figure it out. He did. He really got the hang of it, and started to enjoy the process. By the last couple passes he had some shavings singing from the plane, I could tell he felt really good about what he was doing. The edge did get a little off, so I showed him how to get back to 90 with a little lateral adjustment of the plane iron, and he brought it back to square in about 4 or 5 passes. After he joined the boards, we cut them down and glued them up, that is where we are at right now, we have two desk ends, next we'll get the inner dividers joined and glued up. Thanks for reading along, seeya all next time!
  2. Greetings fellow wood artists, new to this site. I'm not especially adept at these. Any way I've joined to learn more and garner tips to help me improve my skills. I'm a prop/set builder in Arizona. Involved in a few major film and some independent films, mostly westerns. I'm also interested in old woodworking machines. Just recently acquired an industrial jointer, J.A.Fay & Egan. Now to get it apart and locate parts and history.
  3. I started this knife block some time back and then the virus pandemic hit and I didn’t do much in the shop. I worked everyday at the gun store/range as we were considered essential business. I did a lot of repairs to the range since we did close it for a while due to not being able to keep 6’ distances. So I installed new LED lights and we filled in holes in the walls where they got shot and then painted. So I say all that to say I had been busy away from the shop. Last week I finally glued the part that would hold the steak knives. Monday evening I went to the shop and took it out of the clamps. Checked to see the it needed to be flattened to fit the larger part. I took it to the jointer to flatten the back edge. I ran it across the first time and it was close. After checking the fit i came back to run it one more time. This time not watching I turned the piece around and started to push it through. That’s when in the blink of an eye things changed. The piece grabbed and kicked back on me. When it kicked back it threw my hands into the top edge of the fence. I knew I was hurt and looked down and saw raw flesh. I grabbed my fingers and noticed my right little finger was pointing 90 degrees out at the first joint. Some how I put it back in place while still holding my fingers. I ran in the house got my wife and headed to the ER. When the nurse told me to turn loose of my fingers and let her look I told her I wasn’t sure I could. I just knew they were separated. I finally let them go and gave her a look. They tried to clean them up but the were bleeding so they put them in a solution to soak. After hours of soaking this is what I had. They told her to stitch them and she told them there wasn’t enough to pull over and stitch. So I had to see an orthopedic surgeon the next morning. I was pretty sure I was going to loose the ends. So when he came in he was very positive that they would heal and would not require removing any if I don’t get an infection. Ive got to wash them 3 times a day for a while and keep the bandage changed. a So here is what they look like after the first washing. I’m very blessed that they are as good as they are. But as long as I’ve been woodworking just goes to show you things can happen bad in the blink of an eye. Had I watched the direction and noticed the slight slope would cause the End grain to lead I could have prevented this. A piece of wood coming back from a kick back is moving fast and what ever is in the way can be damaged or destroyed. While working with power tools take your time and pay attention to every detail. I very thankful I didn’t get into the spiral cutter. Hope the pictures don’t bother you but show you how fast something can happen and change your life. It it will be about 6 weeks before I’ll go to just bandaids and those fingers will be tender for a long time. Be safe and always use safety equipment.

  5. What does this tool do? I found this in a collection of tools I have that was given to me. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  6. Boy these Cornhole games sure are popular. Our neighbor's daughter is getting married this May and they asked me if I could build a couple Cornhole boards for them, they are going to have games at the wedding reception. I only first heard of this game because of @John Moody, John is the resident Cornhole builder in our community. So I know what little I do know by John's work, and I just scanned the internet really quick to get the regulation sizes of everything and I set to building their boards from wood I had left over from other projects. I have not had a full day in the shop in two years, really, no kidding, life has been quite a challenge and I was so happy to just get this day to make some dust on such a basic project, I loved it. I had my folk music going in the shop, a little bit of Johnny Cash, some Del McCoury and Bill Monroe, and tapered the day off with Hank and Waylon, man what a joyous day. It was just one of those days that lined up perfectly to do some "me" time and the family was completely ok with it. Also, I got to really get into my Shopsmith! And what a blast I had with it. So, I know they are just Cornhole boards, but what's more important, is that I had a day of fun, so if you want to see some boards, read on! I set up my outfeed table configuration to handle some mid size panels for the Cornhole boards. Ripped a couple pre-prefinished 3/4" panels I had left over from a prior project, I am getting used to my Shopsmith today. I then set up my outfeed table to handle ripping some narrow boards, the table needs to be set at the center of the table saw or in line with the blade, it was a quick operation, part of using these Shopsmith's is knowing what they are capable of, and how to maximize their ability, I am not there yet, I am only discovering the surface of what these machines are capable of. I pushed the oak boards through with minimal effort. Then I joined each board just to clean up the edges and to have a nice mating edge to the underside of the surface board. I need to align my Shopsmith fence as you can see a tad burning on the oak edge. I have not adjusted my Shopsmith yet since I purchased it, the gent I bought it from had it sitting in his garage for 15 years with no use, so no doubt I need to tune up the alignment. I have however oiled the sheeves and other areas and I tensioned the drive belt to specs before I used it. I used good ol pocket holes to mount the sides of the boards up to the surface board. I drilled out all my pocket holes first. Then I set to screwing the boards to the underside of the Cornhole deck. I swear Shopsmith and Rigid have a secret relationship, because my Rigid Shopvac hose is the perfect size for the table saw dust port, and the jointer dust port. I cut a small radius on the end of the back cornhole board legs, so they'll fold up and down easily. This bandsaw is really nice, I can't believe how something small and seemingly very simple in design, is so accurate and easy to use. I aint kidding folks, I like it better than my 15" Grizz I had. A very strong feature of the Shopsmith is the Drill Press operation, it's sweet, I like it, I am happy. Quiet, accurate, with an adjustable table for in and out, and up and down and of course since the power head operates the Drill Press, it's variable speed. Drilling the holes out for the carriage bolts. The back folding legs are mounted, you flip them up and lock them down by tightening the wingnuts, I used a 5/16" carriage bolt, washer and wingnut. Legs up. I still have to cut out the 6" diameter Cornholes, but mission basically accomplished. Our neighbors should like them, she is going to paint a mural on the deck of the Cornhole board, I think the LA Dodgers symbol. Any my baby put to sleep, she did well today, I was please with the operations, and I became more efficient at the changeovers, I am getting good at operating my Shopsmith, and it's turned out to be a great machine for my purpose, and, mama gets to park her car in the garage now! I hope John Moody approves of the way I made these boards, and if anyone has any tips on the building Cornhole boards I am all ears, I may do some for my family as well, not sure yet, depends if the kids want them or not. If you want to build your own boards, here is the site that John Moody directed me too, they have all the information and specs for them there. https://www.playcornhole.org/ Thanks for sharing a part of my day with me folks.

  9. I am curious, I have looked all over for an example of a Mark V mounted on a cabinet roll away similar to the 10er's. But have found none. I am curious why? I see plenty of SS's with a cabinet built to sit underneath, but what I am looking for are any ideas for building one that the Mark V can set on, thus eliminating the factory legs. It seems simple enough, but there must be a variable in design I am not seeing, that prevents this from happening. Any help is greatly appreciated. Shopsmith 10er on table, can this be done with a Mark V? Now just imagine a Mark V, I'd like to build a roll away cabinet for the Mark V to sit on, with drawers and doors. And flip down stop caster axles incorporated somehow, so just like the Mark V stand, with a flick of my foot, the cabinet rest on the ground.
  10. I bought a Yorkcraft (house brand from Wilke) in 2005, used it on only one project, mission-style French doors for the den. In the end, they've worked fine. I haven't used the jointer since, but am resolving to give it a shot again. I had problems with snipe, but I can deal with it. I started with 6/4 rough red oak, needed (4) 80" styles. Intention was to flat them, then plane to 1-1/8 thick. I stopped jointing at 9/8 thick when I realized I wasn't going to have any wood left if I kept jointing. Ever since, I work the project into S4S sources, but I have a hankering to use that iron again. I probably should have shopped smarter to find quartersawn pieces. Maybe I didn't pick through the pile quite well enough (and maybe I should have found a better pile at another source). What is the solution to jointing long pieces?
  11. I recently acquired a 16" jointer by S.A. Woods. I'm missing the height adjustment wheel and screw. I was wondering if anyone here knows where I might find parts for this machine? Thank in advance for any input, Shawn

  13. In my opinion some the open stand 6 inch jointers such as the Delta JT360, Jet JJ-6OS, General International 80-075L, Steelex ST1001, CraftexCT086, King CanadaKC-150, and probably a couple other brands that I may have missed, which all basically have the same type of open stand and dust collection setup where the dust port is directed very close to the floor of the dust chute, more then likely causing some air flow resistance and lowering CFM before it reaches the cutter head area. I feel that the port should be pointed in the direction of the chute's flow to be efficient. I had a JET JJ-6OS, and this is what I came up with for a more efficient dust hood.
  14. Inspired by an experienced member on another forum to clean up some rust I renewed my search for an older 6" jointer...so I Google "jointer for sale" and one pops up way the heck out in Connecticut. I send the gentleman an email and he responded with "somebody's gonna look at it Tuesday...I'll let you know"... Since it was the only 6" I dropped it for other interests...and a potful of pain in my lower back... While discussing my situation with a good friend on Sunday, and that I did not go to Connecticut to look at the jointer, another one pops up on Craigslist. This one appearing, by the photos, to be much cleaner. The gentleman reported that it was used once for a cabinet project. It was 6 o'clock, he was one hour away, I was scarfing some dinner and we agreed on 8PM at his place. Now picture me bent over from back pain and making a date to go look at a jointer...knowing full well that I would wind up with it in the back of the RAM...So I grabbed my buddy Steve and off we went. The jointer was in the basement... CR@P...! ! ! But it can come off the stand and off the mobile stand so I figure no problemo...I looked it over and was very happy with it's condition and the good cleaning the gentleman had done to it so we agreed it should come with me and proceeded to plan it's exit... I had Steve take the lead...I picked up the other end, up the stairs, weight against my belly, out the door, down the walk and into the back of the truck...both our fingers looked like curved flattened licorice sticks or beef jerky. Surprisingly my back was better than when I got there. This to me is a pattern...the more I buy the better I feel... Turns out he's moving to an apartment and then to a condo. So out of the corner of my eye I catch glimpse of a familiar shape...yup...Walker Turner drill press. The weight of this will surely completely eliminate my back pain... But alas, his son is taking it. Oh, well... The jointer does not need a lot of cleanup and can be used as is...well aligned also. But...in order for it to become mine I need to take it apart, inspect each piece, clean it my own way, reassemble it and align it all. Sounds like marking my territory, huh...? Pics below...cleaning to follow...

Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. Hey folks, I was going through my old Work Bench Magazine that I typically scan for our downloads section but this fun article about wood planes I just had to share here. Just some fun stuff is all, take it or leave it.
  16. Dragged the Boss along this morning.....a BarnSale. LOTS of Lumber for sale...no cash for the big stuff.....figures... Snooped around all over the place in that old barn. I did see one of the LONGEST bone saws ever ( already have one) Underneath it was a saw till type of tool box. Only two saw shaped objects inside.....but, nearby was a saw's jointer. I also found a small Perfection screwdriver.. "Perfection" is a style of handle they used. I cleaned up both of these treasures, and added a file to the jointer. Used to "joint" the saw's teeth down to all the same height. A better view? The bolt head goes down when you run this along the teeth of a saw, the frame keeps the jointer square to the plate. Screwdriver was a "biggie" Cleaned up nicely? Total price for these two? $1. The file I already had, as well as the zig-zag. Kind of a slow weekend...
  17. Things cooled off a bit, and I fired up the box fan to blow across the bench ( and ME) Put away the No.7c, got out a smaller plane.. Stanley No. 5-1/2 Jumbo Jack. At 15" long, should work nicely on these 18" long edges. I kept checking as I ran the plane, both sighting down along the length of the edge, and with a board thst was already done. Nice when you get these ribbons the full length of the board.. Finally got the four boards to just about match up along the edges. Pipe clamps and glue time.. End grain? I plan to flatten the entire panel, once the glue has cured. I clamped it up just enough to raise a bead.. Pipe clamps? Well, I had a use for the "bar" clamps in the shop. I resawed the second slab to get about a 3" width....but needed some "add-ons" to get the width on the faces.... Think anyone will notice those are Cherry add-ons? This will be turned in to the column that holds the top up. Leaves me with the last of this $1 slab of Walnut Just in case I need a little extra.....
  18. "Fingered" As for the shop... "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here" So, I crosscut a few chunks of cherry this morning. The longer sides were stacked together and jointed When a board is this short, you don't need a #7 jointer plane....then the got trimmed on the end..grain.. Stanley #60-1/2 Cordovan, no less. Ok, I also had the end pieces trimmed up this same way, stacked the mess togther, for now And that should do it for the planes, for now. Laid out the fingers, with a high tech gauge This is also the chisel I will be chopping with. Start at one end, and walk to the over end. Here, I am laying out both pieces at one end, I'll saw and chop this end, then repeat for the other ends. Saw? Just a backsaw....helps to wax the blade every now and then, too. Got all the ends of these sides sawn.. I took the time now, to mark not only the "Top" but marked out the ends as #1 through #4 on the insides. Time to get to chopping.. I chop about halfway through.. Flip the board over and complete the fingers. Repeat until I have both sides done (take note of that time stamp) And a look at the toys in use. I set one side aside for now, need to mark and chop the end piece, and get a test fit.. Needs some fine tuning. Lunch break going on right now. Later I wander back down and chop the other end.... But, I think this will do for one morning's work? Need to haul the Stanley #45 down to the shop later. Need to glue up a panel or two, cherry panel for the top...pine for a bottom. Lid details are still being worked out... Stay tuned, this might get complicated......
  19. Had a few old wood bodied jack planes I wasn't using, and a #3 Dunlap Parts Plane.....Took all four up the road a ways.....a place that Buys, Sells< and Trades all sorts of things.....Traded the four planes straight up for one plane. But, what a plane it is Stanley No.7c......somewhere between a type 7 and a type 9. Those two holes in the side have threads, as someone installed a fence there, at one time... The iron is about used up. Has a four line logo, too. "S" casting for the lever cap Rosewood handles are crack free, almost.. Rear handle has a worn spot on the horn. Two patent dates, two. Tag gave a price of $65, I just did a straight up trade, no money involved. Still need to clean this little guy up. Japanning is about 95%,too. Couldn't get to Columbus for the Wood Working Show.....I guess this will just have to do. BTW: They had quite a few shelves chuck full of stuff like this, location? Heheheh....
  20. ok need help,picked up a planer from craftsman(pics uploaded),where do i go to find out how to set it up,i have a motor for it just need to know where to place it.
  21. Well, inventory of the walnut slabs showed there just wasn't enough there to make a Hope Chest.....soooo, we can make a fancy table instead? Got the clamps off tonight..and grabbed the Stanley No.7c New handles and all. The board on the far side had a hump in the middle. HAD. Jointer plane made a bunch of shavings... But....seems there was a high spot along the glue joint, and the Jointer plane just glossed right over it. Hmmm, well, a few swipes with a cambered Jack plane removed the high spots, then a few trips with a smooth plane to clean things up.. Got both faces smoothed out. laid out some other parts, to check for lengths.. Legs and a couple stretcher/apron pieces. Had to allow for tenons. Cut a few more. Circular saw was faster, but didn't quite cut square. We have ways to make that better... Not only will it cut square ends, it will give you a Cardio Workout as well.... laid out more apron stock. First of four long aprons is cut to length. Will have to rip and crosscut three more like it. End apron needs tenons cut. There will be a thicker "stretcher" near the bottom. I will need to do one more panel glue up, too. Seems the boards are a little skinny at 7" wide. need a wee bit wider one for the bottom shelf. Will also fire up the bandsaw, as a lot of curvyness will be going on. Curves in the legs, and aprons. Not sure about the top, just yet. Edges are another design point for the top.....options? Curved? Ogee/round-over? Leave as is?, Bevel the bottom edges for a thinner look? Plan....what plan? The page for the "plan" is still blank. Single Brain Cell Sketch Up tends to work that way.....stay tuned....
  22. In a LARGE, LONG package, no less. Won a feebay auction, paid just over 12.50 plus $9 for shipping. They had local pickup....90 miles each way was a bit much. So, after cutting and tearing away at the cardboard, paper, and tape, some Rusty & Krusty stuff came to light... At 22" long, this be a Stanley No.7c....type 10. Ihad to supply a rear wood handle, and am waiting on a brass nut for it. Otherwise pretty much intact. Did I say Rusty? There be a lot of grooviness going on there....but haven't found any cracks. Front knob seems to be ok. Might take a while to get this old plane back to new...even for me.
  23. I order a new Jointer back in December for the shop. I got a notice back that it was on back order till March 20th. I called and was told that was not correct, they were in customs and I should have it in a week to week and a half. I waited two weeks and still no jointer. I called back and was told they were on backorder and ti would be February 20th. I decided I would just wait till it got here and not bother them any more. Last Friday I got a card from Grizzly stating it would be 30 days from January 29th before it would be shipped, oh well. Then on Monday, I got a call from UPS and they had package for me and it would be delivered Wednesday. They wanted to make an appointment to deliver it. I said, "Hey anytime!" She said, "we will be there between 12:00 noon and 5:00 pm. Well that is not an appointment. Anyway, at 5:00 yesterday, the driver arrived at the house and we unloaded this 500lbs+ unit and rolled it into the shop. It came in two boxes, one cardboard and the top is int a wooden crate. I can't wait to get started putting it together and getting it online. So this will be my woodworking project tonight. I have a couple of friends coming to help me lift the top and put it on the base. I'll let you all know how it goes.
  24. I got a call Sunday afternoon to go and look at a couple of old wood working tools I really wasn't looking to buy them so I make a ridiculous low offer the the guy said sold. Wow! So I had to go pick the up and I have got to find a place to put them. I also picked up a 1 HP Delta dust collector. Things just keep finding me.
  25. So I am in the market (finally) to start better outfitting my wood shop. Found a Facebook post of a guy I know selling pretty much everything he has. I got extremely excited and went to call him up. Then I realized that the post was almost two years old. Man I felt like an idiot. When I discovered my mistake I had already left him a voicemail. Long story short he called me back and as it turns out he had only sold the table saw. Well I've already got one. I scored on a Dewalt 735 planer and a porter cable 3 1/2 horse router. Picked them both up for $600. He threw in 2 brand new sets of knives for the planer as well. I thought I did good. Then he tells me since we're both public servants (him a police officer and me a firefighter) that he isn't advertising it anymore and if I wanted anything else just pick it and he would hold it for me. I'm going back when funds are replinished and snagging a 14" bandsaw, a jointer, and a mortising machine. Possibly his lathe as well. All are delta and he only wants $650 for the lot. I was on cloud 9 yesterday to say the least. Felt like I did good. What do y'all think?
