    New Handle, Old Saw

    Back at the end of April of this year, went to an estate Auction. Won a bundle of saws.....one was a bit strange looking... Finally got around to rehabbing it a bit.....Filed the teeth as rip. Got a couple pieces of Cherry to make a blank for a handle.. Metal frame was wire wheeled until it was shiny. Red handle holds the file I used to sharpen the blade. let this mess sit over night Clamps were removed, sander set up. Shaped to fit my hands. . Drilled a couple holes, and installed a pair of saw bolts. Steel frame, merits steel bolts, right Operator needs trained on a proper grip.... It starts easy, cuts fast, and IF I hold it just right, straight cuts occur, like magic. Shellac and the brush was still upstairs (yes, I am now cleared for stairs) so I took this up and added a Amber Shellac finish. IF the sun should happen to reappear, I can let the Cherry soak up some rays, and get a "tan". Might be a decent enough, little Tool Box Saw....it is not a "perfection" saw.... That's ok, I already have one....by Atkins.
  3. found out the why for how come for the nib notch on handsaws...

    Slim Pickins

    Spent all day yesterday with my son, looking for old handsaws (another story entirely). A couple of Kijiji contacts, three permanent-type yard sales, and a very large Re-Store. He found plenty, but I only saw one thing that interested me. I used one of these when I started in woodworking (around the age of four). The tensioning doodad was missing, and this one will be altered to look a little better. John
  5. I finally went and done it. My R4512 finally stopped making good cuts so I got a Grizzly. I am SOOOOOOO impressed with this saw. Came with out a scratch on it. Easy to set up (with help). The hardest part was getting it to my shop. It weighs 300 lbs in the box. Got an appliance dolly and a great big friend to help me move it. Made several cuts with it today. If you are thinking about an up grade, this is a really good deal.
  6. Definitely different.

    Sakura Sks 21' Scroll Saw

    I know that Artie has developed an interest in scroll sawing and has somewhat perked my interest. I saw this today on craigslist and wondered if anyone is familiar with this band saw maker. A Sukura 21" scroll saw, apparently made in Xenia Ohio. APPARENTLY AN OLDER SAW BUT ADVERTISED AS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. Can anyone shed any light on the quality of this tool ? Owner is asking $275.00. It includes the stand and a couple of extra blade holders and several blades. The Add indicated that the company is now P S Wood. I went to P S Wood and saw a 21" scroll saw for $799.00 that looked quite similar to the one advertised except for the color

    RBI 220 VS

    As I was perusing Craigslist a couple of minutes ago, I saw an ad for an RBI 220 VS scrollsaw for $450. It was described as ‘in new like condition” in the only picture posted it looked quite nice. My question is (and I realize this is opinions only) fair price? Steal? So-so and will show up again in this price range? I have noticed that items tend to cost a bit more out here on the East Coast. I’m asking this because I could probably make it happen, if it stays listed for a couple more days. I’m thinking (from what I’ve read) that it would probably not drop in value any time soon. Opinions, advice, thoughts, wanted. Thanks
  9. I’m looking to add more wood working equipment to my workshop. Let me me know what you have to offer! Thank you!
  10. Lately I've noticed a few folks that are now using the small plastic and aluminum imported Jobsite table saws. In my opinion they are grossly over priced for what they are. For a comparably sized saw I have a old Rockwell 34-607 nine inch Contractors table saw that was made in the USA, and I consider it as a much better saw. I have added a paddle switch, my own dust collection hood, a mobile base, and a link belt to it. I luv this saw, I use it in the small shop that I use in the winter months.

  13. I picked this up a couple weeks ago locally for a song, and after a little cleaning, not much, and some adjustments to the blade guides, this is what I ended up with. So far I'm very happy with the features and how it's put together, plus it doesn't appear to have much wear on it. On the left side of the table is a material length stop, it can be switched over to the right side if needed. I think that it's going to work very well, there is very little to no side play in the blade. The Owners Manual I was able to find on the net and print.
  14. Have most of the Maple parts cut to rough sizes....saw blade is set up, connectors done. Goal is to make a Frame Saw... Will get a few pictures, later. Today being a Monday, after all Traditional Chinese Woodworking site has a bunch of videos ( in Mandarin) and a few show the fellow building such a saw. My feeble attempt will be close to what he is doing. I still need a 1/4" all-thread, a wing nut and washer to match..for use as the top cord to tension the saw blade. Tore a couple old Butcher's saws down for some of the parts. So, do I post this saw build here, or..in the Hand tool section?
  15. Isn't new, but a good accessories for the SawStop...

    Garage sale morning...

    Rehabs the rest of the weekend, maybe? One Garage sale...all it said was.."Tools" Boss spent more than I did...but, she wasn't buying tools. I spent around $9 this morning...picked five tools Just had to shine up that medallion, to see what this saw was. . Hmmm, ring a bell? Saw is 26" long, has 8ppi, a skew back, and is wickedly SHARP. Paid a dollar for it... This be a $2 all-steel Shelton block plane....next.. This be a Millers Falls No. 900, I think. made after the Mohawk-Shelbourne line was ended...mid 50s? $2.....have had to fix the rear handle, this time it was broke. Front knob has "issues" ( cracks), Lever cap was replaced. Both handle bolts are one piece..bolts. And they were bent. Now, how good is your French? These two were also $2 each. Logo on the iron? A single eyeball means this is about..1875 era. Goldenberg Acier Fondu ( cast steel) Warantie ( warranted) ) This is an adjuster, there is a pin from the iron, into the head of the bolt. Other end of the bolt engages two square nuts, these push against a notch in the bed for the iron. All this adjusts is to retract the iron. Irons are both 1-5/8" wide....bodies are about 9-1/2" long. Both have chip breakers.....neither of them are attach to the irons. These two will take a bit of time to fix up. Five items = $9.....I turned down three Handyman planes, a beat up mitre box and quite a few other "treasures"....figured I had done enough for one sale... Not too bad of a morning?
  17. Ron has a good idea about the lathe and the person using it.. Comfortable to use so a person don't get wore out before he gets started using it. When I bought the new 788 in 99 I decided who ever built the stand that came with the scroll saw was about half off his rocker....So I went to thinking ....and here is what I use to keep me in the shop, longer, and with not as much aches and pains. I built a table to sit the saw on that is 19 1/2" tall. The saw is not bolted to the table, it will slide around as it sits on pieces of a truck tire inter tube... making it quieter, not a clue!! Sometimes I am sawing long pieces of wood and the saw needs to be turned one way or the other to accept the area where the sawing is fixin to take place.. I sit on an office chair with good swivel casters so I can go back and forth to the work top area a few feet away from the saw....Another good thing, which makes me follow the saw line better, I am mostly looking down on the piece to be sawn. Better results on saw-man-ship, not a clue again, but after building this set up , I got better at scroll sawing?? Most of the time these 788's don't bounce around much so maybe the inter tube is helping there?? This scroll sawing turned out to be the most comfortable tool useage of anything I do in my shop.. After I get a pattern attached to the wood then head toward to scroll saw, I let out a loud hurray or is it hurraw for the next few hours will be sitting down to where I can relax and make saw dust! And don't forget to turn on that box fan with the filter attached over there to the left of the operator! It took years to get my shop set up so tripping over objects in the floor would be a priority. I did leave room so I could get to the commode and the sink after I finally locate where they are! Does anyone have any good ideas to keep lumber stored thats not being used from day to day? The 12" Powermatic # 72 table saw catches all the overflow for all it is used for is cross cutting so it gets all the extra crap.... The sled on it is a permanent fixture for it measures 34x48" and is too important to stand up somewhere and get knocked out of whack. Yes I do take care of some of the small long pieces but sometimes I forget they are up there out of the way. And this fixture keeps some clamps close to the work table which is over the end of the table saw I call my work table. Its on a swivel so the clamps are easy to get to. I didn't say easy to squeeze, which they ain't!! A small metal strap bending tool is a good tool for making brackets for storing wood on the ceiling.. Oh, the drill press has a magnet to hold the chuck key but it serves another very important service for the light next to the magnet is too heavy with the extra large bulb making it too heavy to stay up in the air so the magnet holds the light over the work area also to even for. Its on a swivel so the clamps are easy to get to. And did I say not easy to squeeze? I decided getting up in age I need everything out in plain sight so I won't have all those drawers to look through. So I have lots of turn tables with lots of holes to display lots of small items. And I do think it has helped save wasted time..... Lots of experimenting went in to the 60 and 100 watt led bulbs in my shop and my house. I even had my wife take pictures of the receipts and the expected years these bulbs are supposed to last!!!!! I can just see the clerks asking are you sure those led bulbs were the 9 year, or the 18 year or the 22 year warrenty models or what???? We had just now finished installing all those curly cue light bulbs in all the shops and garages and houses receptacles and are now returned to the boxes the led's came in, with no where to go with them!! HO HO.
  18. I see more and more of these coming on the market. I have a couple of "Clamp & Guides" and some shop-built guides, but wonder how they're all working. Do any of you have one you like (or dislike). I'm thinking we might use one of these at the furniture bank for cutting out melamine sheet goods. There's one size that's too big for the table saw we have. Repeatability of cuts would be a BIG help as we do about 68 table tops at a session but only 3 different sizes. Would be nice not to have to measure each one (measure once, cut 24 times). Fe$tool is probably out of the question due to cost. But we'd need to get a circular saw to go with one of the guide-only aftermarket versions http://www.woodworkersjournal.com/track-saw-review/ http://www.boratool.com/ https://www.kregtool.com/store/c48/saw-attachments/p424/rip-cuttrade/ https://www.kregtool.com/store/c48/saw-attachments/p425/accu-cut/
  19. The throat plate adjustment screws on my DeWalt table saw are looser than I'd like and go out of adjustment. What can I put on the threads to hold them in place and still allow future adjustment? Thanks

    Staged a Saw Rescue

    On a road trip....stopped at one sale.....Bought a handsaw for a buck-fifty.. Weird handle, ugly paint job....Left handed saw? As this is the "back"....? My son picked up a Fox Fire riding coat..$80 coat for $10.. Got this "Treasure" home, took the handle off, and cleaned the brass.. Fancy medallion? THREE sets of holes? Phoenix, Patented, Trade ( bird) Mark, Warranted. Hardware matched the holes in the handle Left handed saw? Took the plate to the shop....paint stripper was a wire wheel and a belt sander... Had the remove a bow to the plate, and a kink or two.....plate is now straight, just needs the 8ppi teeth sharpened. Put the saw back together, and then outside to "sun" itself... Non-medallion side ( left handed saw ?) Medallion side. 26" 8 point, crosscut saw. Medallion is by Atkins. Plate is known as a skew back. Three finger grip, with the index finger along the side as a pointer. VERY comfy handle. $1.50? Looks better than when it was all painted up....

    Yard Clean Up?

    Although I have a nice saw til, full of very good handsaws.....I don't like to use them anywhere near nails and screws....so, I happen to have a saw just for that kind of work, hanging around.. That yellow handled saw from Aldi's... Ok, I had three old, nasty 2x4s outside, leaning against the shed. Nails, screws, hardware, and big bugs....no way am I bringing that mess down into the shop... Went through each 2x4, trying to cut out the worst of the mess.. Handsome, ain't they? Didn't even use a square, just the old MK-1 Eyeball......managed to get six good pieces out of the three... As for that saw... IF you get it started nice and straight, it will cut straight. It cuts FAST, though, if you use the entire blade. Well, got my "Cardio" for the day.....oh, and about the bad stuff that was chopped out/off? We have ways....who's got the hotdogs? I also use this thing to get rid of all the BIG cardboard trash. Intend to resaw those six boards down a bit....need small parts for that Pantry Project build. Might even cobble up a small box with some of it.. Saw is just an 8ppi, hardtooth, panel saw. handle doesn't feel too bad, no blisters this time. At least I did make a bit of sawdust, today....

    Saw-Stop in a handsaw?

    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 it did, it cut very fast....so fast that the hand that was holding the scrap steady for the start , got caught up in the action... One swipe...was enough to trigger the "Saw_Stop Sensor" Teeth were drifting to the left in the cut, still had burrs on the teeth on that side, stoned the burrs off. Should be ready to go, next time around. Decided to work on something a little safer, got out the leather strop, and the brand new Green Stick, and honed a few chisels....that way, only the strop can get cut.. So, they all should be ready to go, for the next project....I hope. Needs a new bandaid....and a beer...
  24. This would be a nice idea for someone living in an apartment. Easy dust control and low noise. Isn't cheap though.
