I am tooling up for Windsor chairs and this craft requires a few tools I don't have. In the image are three tenon cutters, or for you UK folks "rounding planes". These tools came as a set, a leg tenon cutter, an arm-stump tenon cutter, and a 1/2″ spindle tenon cutter, plus one six-degree reamer and one 5/16″ dowel plate. These tools are specific to the Windsor tradition but of course can be used for a wide variety of work, I am beyond ecstatic to have these on my work bench, they feel great, works of art within themselves. They'll be a pleasure to use. Thank you Elia for making these wonderful tools available to us, can't wait to use them!
From mid summer to recent when I'm in the Emerald City and as time allows, I try to stop by Habitat for Humanity Restore and a few of the indoor flea markets...Below is stuff that followed me to my truck. As always, keep your arms & legs inside the ride at all times and be sure your safety harness is buckled. No Smoking is allowed and you must be 18 to enter or accompanied by an adult. This offer is not valid in all areas. If you call now we'll double your order, just pay a separate fee. Immediately discontinue use and contact your doctor if a rash appears or you have trouble breathing. Some restrictions apply and never feed the animals. Restrooms are on the right. In the unlikely event we have to abandon ship please make sure you are wearing clean underwear. Thank-you for using our services. We hope you had an enjoyable experience. Please take time to fill out the survey at the end. Left over projects from the old HD Kid's Workshop they used to hold on Saturday mornings. (2) of each, Toolbox & Sail Boat. Hopefully my two grandsons can help me assemble these next spring/summer Cost me 50 cents/each Local flea market...Craftsman Marking Gauge complete with blue marking chalk dust. Circa 1960's...How much was it? It you answered $2.14 you are correct. State of Indiana gets their 7%. It was only a buck...'er buck o seven. Any markings & etchings eroded away. Surprisingly, it's nearly dead on at 6" I'm thinking a Stanley but ???? This was after I had buffed off the worst of the rust. 25 cents each, scale not included...only for demonstration purposes; finials are white oak I had to dig deep for these treasures. The two reamers, center punch which appears to be a reground broken pin punch, the 6 (no name) and 10 (Irwin) and the old rubber band totaled 50 cents The ratcheting screwdriver,no name, but marked Made in USA (maybe a Dunlap) also 50 cents. The (3) countersinks + the rubber band another 50 cents. 2/3 never used or minimal. The other, maybe it will work in wood or plastic. Cornucopia of treasures between a flea market & H4H Restore. Biscuits, 10 cents/container; miter gauge marked $2; 50 cents; large zip-tye bundle 10 cents; collet wrench-quarter, 1/4"-1/2" tap t-handle 50 cents' 1/4" chuck key, dime, large pencil boxes, new (6 total) 50 cents/ea, Stanley Handyman ratcheting screwdriver w/ #2 bit, missing cap, 50 cents; brown jersey gloves, priceless; that & they were from home inventory Craftsman BS Blade, NIP, marked $3; discount orange tag made it $1 Quarter/each Little 6" tri-square before picks; Two more 12" combo squares; blue head one is a Stanley 46-222; circa late 1970's-1980's; other Made in USA; Combo squares have been re-conditioned & will be appearing in a separate thread coming soon to your neighborhood. Price what you see is it not counting Indiana's 7% "finders fee." Didn't need them that's for sure...probably should seek counseling or something. (2) 11/32 x 1/4" dr shallow sockets (those were for my brother he lost his) and 1/4" x 10mm shallow (for me in my spare collection) & what turned out to be a Sargent Block plane but it looks almost identical to Dunlap block; dime each for the sockets, quarter for the Craftsman ignition wrench and a buck for the plane. Cast know is broken; slightly different than the Dunlap...maybe an older version??? Dunlap on the right. It's been in the re-furb shop for some time...one of these days??? Could be twins. Yes that is 30o on the Dunlap iron. You don't want to hear why? I won't make the same mistake on the Sargent. Well probably not. Yeah, I bought another one of these B&D's...I'm up to an embarrassing number now. Is was missing the chuck key which I had; buffed the rust off the chuck for the photo shoot. Came with the 7/32" bit...it needs sharpened; Thorsen combination box end wrench belonged to my grandfather. I've had it over 50 years. 3/8" single speed; still needs dis-assembled, gear head cleaned, grease replaced, but works great. A whole lot of spindles and such...25 cent/bag. I think 29 bags total Couple more pencil boxes...Grandson's each got one (not pictured) to start school. O yeah, a Disston 12" back saw...thought I took a picture of the saw, but just the tag...saw is a little rough, needs cleaned and sharpened...$1...pictures in the next episode of Poor Man's Pickings. Well there you have it...keeps me off the golf course, out of bars, jail and money, but hey, somebody's got to do it. Until next time...Y'all hurry back now. Ya hear? And don't forget boys & girls, mail in your box tops along with $99.99 and receive a box of genuine, farm fresh, sawdust where you can make your own chip board. Some assembly required. Wood glue not included. Oh yeah...Survey! What survey? We don't need no stinking survey!
Entering my Windsor chair-making adventure and tooling up, while I have the funds, I am purchasing what I can and as quick as possible before something comes up around our home that my "machinery sell off fund pool" has to be tapped, naw naw naw, not this time, it'll be spent before we get a flat tire, or a busted water heater. I purchased this set of tenon cutters and reamer from one of my favorite resources for Windsor chair making, http://handtoolwoodworking.com/ These tools came as a set, a leg tenon cutter, a arm-stump tenon cutter, and a 1/2″ spindle tenon cutter, plus one six-degree reamer and one 5/16″ dowel plate. These tools are specific to the Windsor tradition, I am beyond ecstatic to have these on my work bench, they feel great, works of art within themselves. They'll be a pleasure to use. I can't wait to build my own shave-horse and sit in it, and start shaving, and rounding, and sawing and much more. Once I get going, I'll be sure to blog my experience. Thanks for sharing in my excitement!
