  Scrub Plane iron's edge
Posted by: cputnam - 8 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking Hand Tools - No Replies

I have a cute little woody scrub plane with about a 1" wide iron. The radius on the iron is a little too severe for even an eclipse style honing guide, Which leads me to the following questions for those of you who use scrubs. About what angle do you use for the bevel? I know a scrub does not have to be uber sharp but just how far do you take it?

  Hinge Question - Lid Won't Close
Posted by: OBG53 - Yesterday, 04:00 PM - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (7)


I installed Brusso stop hinges on a box I built using their template and instructions. The hinges are flush with the tops of the box and the lid. However, the lid won't close. There is a 1/8" gap across the front of the box. What is the remedy for this?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

  Veneer Hammer
Posted by: Scoony - Yesterday, 03:51 PM - Forum: Woodworking Hand Tools - Replies (4)

I will be doing some hot hide glue veneering on the current project and need to make a veneering hammer. I have two pieces of brass that I can use. One is 3/16" thick which would work fine, I think. I also have a small sheet of 1/8" brass that I can cut off a piece to use. 

Who here has used a veneer hammer and can provide insight on the brass piece I need for the edge? Will the 1/8" be enough? Need to make this hammer this week to maintain progress on the project.

  End grain cutting board without thickness planer
Posted by: photobug - Yesterday, 02:18 PM - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (3)

I have made up the blanks for a cherry/maple cutting board.  After gluing up the blanks I used my ROS to flatten the glued up boards and remove glue lines in preparation for passing them through my Dewalt 734 thickness planer.  My concern is getting some kind of snipe and losing 2-3 inches off the board when passing them through the planer.  

Is it possible that I can skip the planer and just rely on a good ROS to surface the boards before the next cut to make the final glue up?

  Nova 4" Jaws
Posted by: Bill Holt - Yesterday, 02:03 PM - Forum: Woodturning - Replies (2)

What is the ideal tenon size for the Nova 4" jaws?  I am preparing a 14" rough bowl for my nephew.  I know he has the Nova chuck with three jaw sets.  I looked at the Nova description and all I find is 4".  I don't know if that is the maximum tenon or the maximum mortice.  My nephew is rather new to turning and his job has him on the road this week so he's no help.

  WTB Stanley #3 for My Son
Posted by: Bibliophile 13 - Yesterday, 01:59 PM - Forum: Tool Swap N' Sell - Replies (2)

My son, who is in elementary school, is really interested in woodworking now.  He always wants to help out at the bench.  So I'm slowly collecting hand tools for him. Here's a little post I wrote up about his tool box.  We have a pretty good basic collection in the works, but I want to get him a #3 size smoothing plane.  He really likes mine, and I think it's the kind of tool he can grow into--and hopefully keep and use for the rest of his life. 

Here's what I have in mind: Stanley #3 smoothing plane, WWII-era or earlier.  I don't need something in mint condition, just something with good bones.  Dirt and surface rust are just fine--I can clean and fettle a handplane with no problem, and it could even be a project that my son and I could do together.  I'm hoping for something in the $30-$40 range.  I have PayPal. 

You can PM me, reply to this thread, and/or email me at lastwordsmith@gmail.com

Posted by: paul2004 - Yesterday, 10:19 AM - Forum: Tool Swap N' Sell - No Replies

I have a FWW memory stick and other DVD archives for sale.
I want to sell this as a group. $100 free shipping to the USA.
You are free to make an offer or an offer to break up the set, but
someone that wants to buy it all will get priority, so it may
take me a few days to respond to other offers.

Memory stick purchased Fine Woodworking.

This is made to install on Windows, but if you are running
another operating system, you can install it on a Windows box and then
copy the directory containing the PDF files to your Linux or Mac box.
Includes original case

All the DVDs have PDF easily accessible, so they are linux/mac friendly.

Woodcraft magazine : Disks 1-3 covering 15 years
Issue 1 -91 (through Nov 2019)
I bought these directly from woodcraft.
Includes the original 3 cases

I have 3 other "sets" of magazines on DVD that I will include
as a bonus. (5 disks total). I bought these off ebay. I have no way to validate
if these are legit copies or not, so they are FREE with purchase.
They do work. PM me for details.

  $1,000.00 to install a pocket door
Posted by: Cooler - Yesterday, 08:24 AM - Forum: Home Improvement - Replies (4)

I was watching a HGTV show (Property Bros.) that is Covid-19 fall back.  That is they are adding content to an already broadcast show and calling it "new".

They have added mostly just boxed captions, often giving the cost for that particular option.

In one scene they were showing the installation of a pocket door they listed "$1,000.00.

Even if you spent $300.00 on the door, and $175.00 on the hardware, that would leave $525.00 left for labor and materials.  Figure $125.00 for material.  Four hours of labor to install the door?  Does that sound reasonable?

  SoCal woodoworkers: selling some stuff
Posted by: robmaz - 07-12-2020, 11:40 PM - Forum: Tool Swap N' Sell - Replies (2)

Hi guys. It's been a million years.  After years as a hobbiest and a successful but underpaid stint of doing this professionally, I moved to LosAngeles where I needed money more than validation or personal satisfaction.  I sold everything but my handtools and my mid 90s American Made 52" Unisaw.  After 3 years here, I'm coming back to Baltimore but am considering selling my Uni since the new life and home simply won't accommodate it.  I also have a couple other things like a never-used all steel super dust deputy and barrel.  This is a really sad occasion for me as I felt like if I ever moved back, I'd be able to get back into it. Alas it is not to be. Thinking about $1000 for the Uni in fantastic shape (used a sawstop at the shop space I rented) and 300 for the Dust deputy and barrel.  I don't have time to try and remember how to post pics on this thing tonight as I remember it being a pain in the butt. Please PM if you're interested and I can text or email pics to you.  you guys know what they look like anyway. Thanks guys

  WTB - Wood Burning Controller

I’m looking to start some wood burning as part of my turnings and looking for a controller. Extra points for a Razertip brand, but not required. Thought I would ask here before looking elsewhere. PM if you happen to have one available with price.
