Darn, that's a shame. It would come in really handy.

Huh, interesting. We use freeze spray in the electronics repair business to help narrow down hard to isolate thermal failures. I never thought of using it to free rusted metal.

Well, now we back to evaporust, lol. If you have a way to keep that part immersed that will be the easier solution to break it loose. Is the dog steel or brass? Wish I would have realized that detail before the paint... There were several options, now only a couple.

That's where I found it, but you may have to look at a NAPA or CarQuest as some "parts changer" stores don't stock it....

Turning good wood into designer firewood on a daily basis.....

I never plan my days. "Premeditated" is a word Lawyers love to toss around in courtrooms.

It's also available through electronics parts suppliers. And through janitorial suppliers (and some office supply stores, and department stores) as chewing gum remover. And you can buy it in tiny quantities as wart killer/remover.

I got the dog loose and it is operating as it should. I just touched up the paint afterwards.

You got the miter saw for $2, I think I am going to throw up, I have looked all over the midsouth and haven't found a good one yet, if you run across another one and want to sell it let me know. That is all we had to work with before the electric miter saws came out, the one I had was dead accurate.

Plane back from the dead.

I love the old hand tools, some are much better than the new stuff. Especially the squares. I should just take a picture of my shop, I don't have many new tools.

I got this 8" Table saw for $75. My Dad has a 10" version of this.

The plane for $8

The plane had a broken back handle, had to glue that up, a cleaning, some paint, and Viola. All it says is made in USA on the front and the iron. It's 14"x2 3/8". What # is that? It also has 3, 10-24 threaded holes on the left side. Anyone know what make this is?

Were do you get the Evapo-rust stuff? I have never heard of it.

That vice looks awesome Ryan, you did a heck of a rehab on it. Does that dog have a handle to raise and lower it? Green looks really nice.

Gary, Evaporust is available from the woodworking stores if you have one and from the auto stores if you don't. They keep it in my Oreilly's by the sandpaper, bondo, paint area. For our purpose the bigger jug is the better deal so you can fully immerse parts. And you can pour it back in through a filter (coffee filter, t-shirt, etc) to reuse it.

It's Monday already!! Lets see the bench!!!!

Thank you very much. I had alot of help here determining the proper approach. That little button above the ACME screw is a "thumb catch" for raising and lowering the dog.

My score from Friday (post 1 of 2)

Here's my haul from Friday:

I got the 13 Bessey clamps, set of Bessey frame glue-up blocks and the clamping straight edge saw guide for $85 dollars.

This is a very solid bench. Finally, I have a real woodworking bench in my shop. It's already been a valuable tool and I've only owned it a few days now.

The bench cost me $75. An absolute steal.

As you see, the man never got around to making drawer fronts. But I'm sure I can manage to make my own.

Thank for the comments, guys. A decent workbench is like a rite of passage. While I can't claim the pride of having built this one. I will surely take pride in using it and creating my own works on it. I graciously ensured the maker that his bench will be loved, respected and used often. He seemed quite pleased to see it go to another woodworker who understands its significance and who appreciates the work he put into it.
