    Bandsaw repair

    Refabrication from mild steel was what I was thinking, if replacement was not an option. Tom

    Bandsaw repair

    Can you disassemble the part further? I wouldn't think that JB weld fix would be worth a damaged blade. How is the pivoting component captured to that plate? Might be easier to get an idea on how to tackle making another that way. If you have to remove that bearing, make sure you pull it out...

    Bandsaw repair

    Can you give us a picture of the broken cast component? Could it have had a knock before you got it, if secondhand? Or is the casting rubbish, so much so that a brazed repair might not be worth the trouble. I'm not experienced with cast iron, but would think taking a flap disc to remove the...

    Snapped Chisels!

    Not sure what sizes they do, but Crown tools make massive mortise chisels that are kind of unwieldy long, I wouldn't be surprised if they made some 3/4" ones. Not as tall, or not as much meat as on the pig stickers of old, but they might do the job if available. I picked a new one up for a ten...

    "Off the shelf" vs DIY workbenches

    These ideas might not be a bad choice for one starting off Taken from the absolutly huge collection of benches on the site lumberjock$ To find this huge collection of benches, prob over 200, type in to google... All replies on Work bench smack down. Edit: I forgot to add that you could find a...

    I went to see my podiatrist today

    I have it bad also, and also can agree with him in hating hearing ignorant comments. Topical solutions and all that homeopathy malarkey, absolute rubbish. And the doctors and educated sheep are even worse trying to make folks take Humeria and Methotrexate to cure it and arthritis. (cancer meds)...

    I went to see my podiatrist today

    Diet is the only fix for this, (psoriasis) and buying a set of mini Gilbow tin snips for the nails, and olive oil for the skin. Dr, Ian Billinghurst explains this and NO I am not being smart. The body needs purging of all types of sugars, which is basically most foods. Its an anti fermentation...

    Snapped Chisels!

    Hello I would look out for some "pig sticker" mortise chisels, if you need a real strong chisel. You can really give them brute force, and they can be bought for less than a tenner on the bay or the likes of tooltique or similar tool dealers. Edit quite a lot of them on the bay, for cheap. Tom

    Making chisels out of files

    Thanks David I should clarify that I only want to make a pair of single bevel marking knives with an acute point. Good to know the business end will be suitable. Plenty of metalwork to be done in a few months time, so don't mind spending lots of time angle grinding a wee bit of tough stuff...

    Making chisels out of files

    I also have some old woodies that are too far gone, Not saying I can bring myself to cutting another plane iron up for making knives from, but I might as well ask if anyone has made a single bevel knife from old laminated steel plane irons. Thanks Tom

    Making chisels out of files

    Thaaat's not a kniofe! 🤠 Edit... I actually would like to see your marking knife David. Two very very cheap knifes I have bought from axi, not telling the brand, are made of butter, an am getting fed up with them. I do hope they remedy this, wouldn't be that much to fix. On a plus, its taught...

    Table saw help needed

    Hello First thing I would do is check what power that motor has. I would presume a thin kerf blade would be needed for that machine, not a 3.2 kerf blade. Your riving knife should to be wider than the saw plate, but narrower than the teeth, somewhere in between. If you have a thin kerf blade of...

    Spiers number 1...blinged

    Is the rolling of the edge of the rear of the mouth, perhaps more noticeable on a lower angle bed, the only reason not to opt for regular mild steel as a suitable candidate for plane making? I had to do this recently for my shoulder plane, but its sound now. Might be better if my plane were O1...
