  1. I have been posting some of my furniture builds. Here are are few of the tools I have made. There are details and pictorial on my website for those interested in making their own: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ShopMadeTools/index.html A few of these have been featured in Fine Woodworking magazine. This is one - a bridle plough plane ... The plough is based on the Mathieson Bridle Plough. The “bridle” is the method in which the fence is attached to the arms. For centuries many methods have been offered to ensure that the fence runs parallel to the skate. The bridle appears to have been one of the best, but it is difficult to build, and so few were produced. The wood is West Australian She-oak. Its box plus set of 8 irons ... Since we are on boxes, the box alongside was an entry in tool-making competition across Australia in 2009. I think it placed third. Not great images, my apology ... Jarrah box with drawer (containing drill bits and drivers) ... Inside the box is a small brace (throw of 5") and a screwdriver in She-oak. This was carved from a solid billet. The hand rest is Tasmanian Blackwood. Regards from Perth Derek
  2. What's on your work bench? This is the official topic for images and friendly chatter regarding that all important surface, the personal statement of your shop, the steadfast friend we can always count on, the space of your shop that nobody knows better than you, we are talking about the almighty "Work Bench". Submit your images now! That's right, don't clean it up, don't be embarrassed, the messier the better, or if there is nothing on it at all, that is fine too. If you have not touched your bench in years, and you have taken a break from woodworking and have boxes piled on it, we want that image too! All images are welcome. Spirit of Topic This is a Hit-n-Run topic, as you walk past your bench, whip out your camera or smart phone, and snap a shot, load it up here. No need for text explanations if you don't want too. To kick this off, walk out in your shop and snap a picture of your bench surface now, and lets get this topic rolling. This will be an ongoing topic, for you to share images of your bench top today, and every day. Types of benches Some of us have small benches, some of us have big benches, some of us use a space in our dining room, some may have a picnic table they use for a bench, and some of us may have a bench of all benches, the traditional joiners bench, or a beautiful full cabinet shakers bench. No matter what you call your work surface, no matter what your work surface looks like, we want to see images of your bench! Thank you in advance to the participants!
  3. Maybe it is time to make your own. A lot cheaper than buying one and grinder and drill is all you need. Shop Built Texturing/Spiraling Tool
  4. Went to Lowe's today and noticed they are giving their tool department a makeover. Looks like they are dedicating a large area to Craftsman Tools. It appears the Kobalt brand is staying too. I saw a special section for Dewalt also. They are nowhere near done with the improvements so we'll have to wait and see what else is planned.
  5. Too hot to do much....taking a break. Had to go for a CT Scan of the right ear....hit a few sales between there and home....spent $9, counting an item for the Boss... L-R: Defiance screwdriver bit, small block plane, 2 Irwin Perfection handled drivers, North Bros. Yankee No. 131A, Handy Andy chisel, Millers Falls No. 6 screwdriver, Craftsman 1/4 stubby, and a pair of vise grips....that was missing a part.. Kind of NEED a bolt? Also a c clamp. Found a bolt for the visegrips... Cleaned the little screwdriver up a bit. Block plane had a broken cap iron....we have a spare.. I think this will do..for one day's pickings?
  6. Grizzly's history Another interesting video. Danl
  7. Today Easy Wood Tools announced a new set of Mini Easy Hollowing Tools to the world. We are very proud of these tools and I am sure they will be a hit! The thing we don't really advertise and you guys here at TPW should know is that @Steve Krumanaker and @lew were a critical part of our team in developing these tools. They both tested, critiqued and provided invaluable input into the development of these tools. They've had had prototype sets in their shops for several months now. We went through several variations of prototypes and came up with what I think is a great set of new tools. Many thanks to Steve and Lew, you guys are good!
  8. Here is a piece on making your own texturing tool, a handy item to have in your arsenal of turning tools .Shop Built Texturing / Spiraling tool
  9. Well that say the imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Once again another manufacturer is trying to pull us away from the best carbide tools on the market. Checking their tool specifications will reveal that their tools don't measure up to those from Easy Wood Tools. Don't be fooled, buy the best! contact @Jim from Easy Wood Tools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Saw this on a couple other threads and thought I would post it here. Another low life has struck. Here's the story from Doug: "A guy I knew from the club (yes, a woodturner) 12-14 years called me about a job. He worked for his dad for 25 years then took his dad's customers to start his own business and that's all I knew when I hired him. Well, a few things started to disappear the after the Florida symposium a whole pallet of tools vanished... I let him go. When I called the police they showed me a mug shot then his whole story fell into place. ... The bottom line is he stole over $80,000 worth of tools, and the only place to sell them is to you. He can't change steel or flute shape so that helps find the tools.... if you see anything contact me. Thank you, Doug Thompson" If you see anyone "unusual" selling A11 or CPM-10V black-anodized tool steel, call Doug and the cops. No phone numbers were provided.
  11. I made these Easter eggs a couple of years ago using Stutter/chatter cutter tools on the lathe. I then detailed with paint. I've shown these before, but we have some new member that may want to give this a try. You can make your own tools, or buy them as I did. The set of 3 that I got were not expensive. It was a fun project
  12. Putting together my new larger CNC has forced me to get rid of some things for lack of space. My Shopsmith Mark V was bought new in 1984, and kept in the basement since then. Basically the last 30 years it went unused. Has all the attachments and runs great. Original invoice was $2400. The turning tools are still in their box with the wax still on the tips. It has absolutely no rust, and comes with the original manuals. I made some pretty neat things the few years I played with it, before work and stuff put my ww on hold. Located in north Detroit suburbs. Have no idea what to even ask so I'll just throw out a number -- $800.
  13. Will the "real" Craftsman tools, please stand-up. Not surprising this dispute would surface sooner-than-later... Stanley sues Sears
  14. OK, I know this is old information, but this is a well done video of who owns and manufactures what tools. There is some interesting info buried in the video, also. Do you know, that, there are two different Rigid tool lines; Orange colored and Red colored? The red ones are the true Rigid brand and geared towards the commercial end and the orange colored ones are manufactured, under license to Rigid, by several different companies. The video, also, touches on where the tool brands are based, what their annual tool sales, in dollars, is, and how many people they employ Anyway, enjoy...
  15. Ran across a definitive list of popular tool brands and who owns them. Check out this link. Quite revealing. Scroll down some to the table of contents and choose from there. https://toolguyd.com/tool-brands-corporate-affiliations/
  16. Mark Stansbury (creator) posted on this (his) link on another site. This is a treasure trove of resource material, catalogs and the like for anyone that appreciates, uses, collects or researches old tools. Kudos to him for his vast work...I've C&P his comments from another site. Posted 09/16/2017 About a year ago I started uploading tool catalogs that I have scanned onto the Internet Archive (Archive.org). In July the uploads got a name, International Tool Catalog Library, and it's now up to 562 catalogs and other items. This includes many of the old Rose Antique Tool scanned catalogs, and whatever I could find on Google Books. There are many on woodworking hand tools, and you can pick topics or manufacturer to help find what you want. In addition to American, there are 42 English catalogs, 31 French catalogs, and a few others. Please bookmark it, download and save what you want, and spread the word. Wiktor Kuc is using some of my scans for WK Fine Tools. If you have scanned something that you'd want to add to this effort, please contact me. I'm particularly looking for the big names like Stanley and Millers Falls, including tool instructions.
  17. I ran out of wall space in my shop and needed more room for my woodturning tools, so I had been thinking of a mobile station that can be rolled anywhere I need it. I recently built what I call my prototype. With a lot of leftover MDF I went to work and came up with this, mind you it’s very rough but I can use this idea and fine-tune it to create a "real" finished cabinet. Let me know your thoughts.
  18. I have a project I've been working for a while. Its been a bit of a challenge for me. The carcass is done and it's time for the drawers. I'm in a bit over my head. As the title says I need your input on tools and techniques to shape this drawer front. I have included some photos to help clarify what I'm trying to accomplish The first picture shows a practice piece of wood and the basic shape of the Block Front drawer. The Second picture I'm pointing to the area of most concern. This it where the flat area transitions to the curved part of the drawer front. I'm having much trouble make in nice clean sharp transition in that area. The third photo explains/shows what I what to achieve. (the drawing on the left). The drawing on the right is what I don't want. I want of avoid have small inside radius you get as when you route inside corner. I have also included a like video link to further help you under strand my goal. If you go to the 7:30 mark you can save so time.
  19. Woodcraft has their Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) on sale until December 31, 2018- 10% discount!!! And, if you buy $35 or more they will throw in FREE shipping! Might be a great way to use some of that Christmas Cash that Santa left. https://www.woodcraft.com/categories/easy-wood-tools?trk_msg=EDTF891G0N2KLA5JPKOG98O730&trk_contact=QNSFAEQ45HFA1IHE09ORJKR45S&trk_sid=2DOUC4P1J1GC4CAVP8GMIA3TOO&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Easy+Wood+Tools&utm_campaign=End+of+the+year+means+an+end+to+these+deals
  20. We got fun and games We got everything you want If you want to play. Tool Chest is completed. And sitting in it's new home. A look at the rest of this little box Most furniture has a plywood back, not this thing. Thems raised panels, in Pine I can carry the "tote" over to the bench, with the toys, er, tools I need. That handle on the backsaw sticks up just enough, that the tote can only go so far. Five saws are in the til. Inside area is 25" long. A jointer, three jack planes, and three smoothers reside in the cramped Plane til. the rest of the planes? reside on the "Ready Rack". Another look? This little place is MY workshop. Even hired a new crew to clean it up. Igor was fired for using my broom as Transportation. I hired his three brothers....Larry-gor, Curly-gor, and Moe-gor. Seem to do a decent job.
  21. Guys, I want to make some sleeves for some larger chisels and a slick. Would this beginner kit be a good starting purchase or if anyone has a better suggestion please let me know. Big Teddy Leather Kit
  22. Still a mess, but it sure looks better than it did a month ago. This is my new work area, a little small, about a quarter of what I had, but I like it, feels warm and cozy.
  23. Hartville Hardware is opening a second store in Tallmadge, Oh. They are having a Grand Opening this weekend. Free 5 gallon bucket and 20% off what you can fit in it. Just a heads up, no affiliation. https://www.hartvillehardware.com/tallmadge
  24. This past week I had the opportunity to visit Grizzly Industrial in Springfield MO. My wife and I were on our way to Branson, MO to see the shows and I just had to stop. I have been there before, but it still was a treat to see and touch. Danl
