  1. 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!
  2. I don't work there (well, i apparently don't work anywhere), but I was recently at an Ollie's store and they had some NOS (new old stock) out and it included made in USA phillips #2, a 6" side cutter, a 3-pack plier set. There were also some made somewhere else sockets and linesman pliers. Not sure if they all got them or not or if only local warehouses?
  3. These have been out for awhile and came on sale a while back ,so I had to try them out. First picture is the way I usually run trim through the router table, and then the new way. I like the new ones, they do what they are advertised to do. Herb
  4. I bought one of these (a Fein, because they still had the patent active) a number of years ago. I got it primarily because I was doing a lot of refinishing at the time and wanted something to sand out details and moldings. Well, it turned out to not be so great at that, so it's mostly sat in the tool bag, Today, I was trimming off some dowels with my flush cut hand saw, going slowly and I had a bunch to do, so I dragged out. Wow, I have to remember that more often. I guess I've always considered it really handy for a remodeler, trim carpenter, electrical rough-in, or a plumber, but not so much for a furniture maker like me If you have one, what all do you find it useful and handy for? ( as an aside, an Oh Carp! moment this morning, I went to swivel the dresser I'm working on and the side split at a weak point in the grain that I hadn't noticed. I guess I should be grateful in happened in the raw and not after I'd installed drawers and finished and delivered the thing. Glued the split and will add some pocket hole screws on the inside when the glue is dry. Will use the OMT to trim the dowel plugs on them.)
  5. Noticed that HF has two new tool lines - Bauer and Hercules. I never did understand where all their other house brands fit in the hierarchy -- Chicago Pneumatic, Pittsburgh Forge, Pittsburgh Professional, Chicago Electric, Daytona, Portland, Bunker Hill, (am I seeing a pattern here?) Central Machinery, US General, Earthquake XT, Storehouse, Warrior, Hardy, Predator, Drill Master, etc. etc. etc. Why don't they just have a good, better and best, or in their case, crap, crapper, and crappiest? And why do they sometimes have two SKUs for the same tool - different vendors?
  6. Got a question for ya'll, if you were asked what are the types of power that has been used throughout our history to power tools and machinery, what would your answer be?
  7. I just purchased a "set" of 5 wood turning bowl chisels, made from files. I'm curious about how these will work for turning bowls. Any advice on the maintenance of these?
  8. A small mom and pop shop selling general woodworking supplies and tools.

  11. We are into February already. Yesterday the temperature was over 60° but today back in the 30's. Typical Pennsylvania weather! Our Patriot Turners- @Woodbutcherbynight showed us a really well thought out wire burning tool. This one can be used with one hand! Check out his post for a detailed description of the build and all of the great comments Gunny received! @Masonsailor continues the process of turning the pieces for his "vertical lazy susan". He has completed the three tulips- His complete thread, showing the progress, is at- @Ron Altier posted a beautiful blue ornament. As always, Ron's work is spectacular. I think he finally has a handle on that UV finish- Please check all of the great comments he received on this one- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to the show website and registration information. Check out who is going to be there- Chris Caliendo- president of Easy Wood Tools! Thanks @Jim from Easy Wood Tools for the heads up!!! For The Newbies- As with most everything, there's more than one way to accomplish a process. Mounting a bowl blank, on a chuck, is no exception. Some turners use a recess while others will use a tenon. Here is video from Sam Angelo explaining his take on which to use- If you are looking for classes to improve your turning skills, Craft Supplies USA may have something available. Here's the link to their complete list- https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/t/205/3-Day-Woodturning-Workshops-(Deposit-Only) Expand Your Horizons- I found a rather interesting video from Lyle Jamieson. He discusses the requirements for "reach" in turning advance shapes. New Turning Items- Woodturners Wonders has a couple of new items available. Along with their CBN wheels, they are now offering diamond wheels. They are also offering a new, two prong drive spur- All their products can be found at their website- https://woodturnerswonders.com/ Everything Else- We often mention embellishments to our turnings and have shown several methods to accomplish this. Mike Peace posted a video showing the tool he uses on small projects.- In addition, here is the link to a printed handout with sources for the parts needed to make the tool- http://www.mikepeacewoodturning.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Rotary-Texturing-tool-01282020.pdf Rick Turns has uploaded his list of YouTube turning videos for January. Why not give Rick a "Thumbs Up" and a positive comment, on his channel, for his efforts- @Cliff posted a neat video showing how one turner engineered the mechanics necessary to make specialized turnings. I remember a while back @BillyJack asking us about a more simple solution. Enjoy! Safe turning
  12. Hey turners, is it a practice to glue felt or some other type of padding material to the surface of the tool rest where the tools meet the rest? The reason why I ask, and I know this is dumb, but I have a couple shiny turning tools, and putting them up on the metal surface tool rest, well, they'll just get all scratched up, the tools that is. Do you guys try to protect the finish on the shaft of your turning tools, or is it just what it is, grit the teeth and get those new scratches on your new tools. Thanks for any help.
  13. Okay wood turners extraordinaires. I would like to get my own set of turning tools. can you give me feedback on which ones to get first and which brand is medium or quality price level. not looking for top of the line just yet until I get to practice in a bit. I have seen Laguna on here a lot is that one you all would suggest or is there other? i am open to all thought on this. thank you in advance!
  14. 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Weather was into the 50s, around here.....van was at work, no cash in the pocket.....might as well do a walk about, and see what is in the two local antique stores, downtown.....Walking across a street,,twisted the knee a bit....ow! Finally made it to one of the stores....on the way around to a stall, noticed this gray thing $225+tax.....Appears to be a work bench...has a planing stop, too. Kept walking towards a cabinet... All kinds of goodies....however.. $38 for a well used #80? that #81 was even higher.. $58 +tax....cheap..compared to the other plane.. That be a $200+tax Stanley #72 champfer plane....time to wander down stairs.. Pedal away as you sharpen you edge tools.... The brace has a stove bolt? Another table had these..plus a pair of.. Time to walk down the street the the other store.... Yep, it says Junk Rescue.... Where I have been getting a few bits. Not sure about the rest of these toys.. need an axe to grind? Look close, you'll see a coping saw.. Turn around slowly, else you might miss something.... Then, one last look around this stall.. Ah...a little red vise. Soo, who ya gonna call? Did not spend a cent...just was "window shopping".....time to head home, and rest the knee....
  17. Ok Patriot Woodworker's,how'd yall do! What did Santa bring you and your shop! We had a pretty mellow Christmas this year, mama and me promised each other we'd not exchange gifts, but we did manage a couple nice ones for our kids. An Ipod 5h Gen for our youngest girl along with some books she wanted. Then we got a set of books that our oldest girl wanted, she loves the Bill O'reilly series of killing books, Killing Lincoln, Killing Patton etc. So we set her up with those and she wanted some books by William Buckley and a hand full of other books. So now she can go to school armed to the teeth for debates. Our boy scored some nice clothes and books. All went well, and we had a great time all the while not losing sight of the reason for the season. I have the greatest gift in the world, a healthy family (but for me, dealing with this incredible cough and flu!), and you guys! Thank you Patriot Woodworkers and staff for being here, and helping and contributing to our community. Let us not forget those who have served our country and paid the ultimate price, and let us not forget those families who are putting out a place mat at the table tonight for their deployed soldier or lost loved one. So, how about you all, any cool tools or machines that ended up under the tree this year?
  18. I'm going to an auction next Saturday (Krummy, take note) in Marion, Indiana to check out a Powermatic spindle sander so I began to look at pictures of the auctioned items. It is an estate sale and the owner had some Grizzly tools but he also had a jointer and a 16" planer that were made by a company named Pratco. They sure had that Grizzly look to them but I had never heard of the name Pratco. Can anyone enlighten me?
  19. A couple weeks ago I purchased a couple books from Amazon's used book service. You can see the first book that arrived in my mail at this discussion Fine Woodworking Building Small Projects. My newest book arrived in the mail from Amazon, it is simply titled "Tools", by the Garrett Wade Company and some beautiful photography by Dick Frank. This book is awesome, it's a hard cover book in near new condition with over 240 pages of great information about our tools, and some history behind them. The illustrations are wonderful and the images are to drool over. Here is a link to the same book I now have, at Garrett Wade Tools or you can click on the image to the left to view the book. I bought mine for a mere 5 bucks used from a book store in Utah, they shipped it shortly after I purchased it and it arrived in a week. This book normally retails for about 30 bucks brand new in wrapper, if you can even find it anymore, but you can find many at Amazon for less in near new condition. I am very happy with my new found source of used books. For years I bought new books, but not many because they are expensive, now this Amazon used book store has opened up a whole new world of high quality books for me, and I am enjoying it completely. Links of Interest Garrett Wade Garrett Wade Tools Book List Here is a neat excerpt from this book So, now I go lie down in my bed for the evening and flip through these awesome pages of tools!
  20. And then MAYBE just maybe this box will be done? Lid is filled up.... So is the box. Maybe some sort of swivel keepers? Gave the box a good rub done, after the lacquer coat had dried.. need to set things up to take some decent pictures of the outside. Still haven't gone to get a latch. Thing weighs a 'ton", too. I knocked down the gloss quite a bit. getting close to the end. While going through Menards sometime, to get the latch, I'll go past the screen hardware section.....those screen keeper levers might be just the thing....may have to add a strip of wood, here and there....
  21. Just saw a handy workshop hint to use pegboard for your tools. While I've had pegboard, I've gotten away from it, thinking it's a relatively inefficient way to store tools. I much prefer my mechanic's chest that sits next to my workbench. A drawer for knives, others for chisels, saws, hammers, measuring and marking, router bits, drill bits, rasps & chisels, screwdrivers, wrenches, etc. I'd take me a 12' wall to hold what my chest does in 30" Besides, it keeps them cleaner and if I get a new tool, I don't have to rearrange everything to get it next to its friends. What's your take on this?
  22. Father's Day is coming up and some SWMBOs may need suggestions What is your favorite tool, and why? Where did you get it and how long have you had it? What is your most used tool, if it's not that one, and what do you use it for?
  23. I've been pondering the idea of selling my tools. It"s getting harder to get into the shop, with the aches and pains in these aging bones. My head tells me to sell, but my heart says no. I've kept active all my life, but, at 86+, it seems that no matter what, the body keeps loosing strength. As a youth ,I could press 150 lbs 10 times easily. Now I can't lift 100 lbs off the ground. Actually, a struggle to pick a bag of cement. All the yard work this spring from the fallen tree branches, from the winter storms, sort of found muscles to that I didn't know I had.
  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
  25. 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
