  1. Hand Tools
    While searching around an old barn I found a very peculiar looking tool that I cannot figure out. Not even a guess. I’m not even sure what would be considered the front or the back. Thanks

    I just bought a refurbished 15-gauge Pierce finish nailer at Harbor Freight for $27. It will fire 1-4 nails, then only shoots air. The magazine is properly loaded and advances normally, and the gun was oiled (4 drops pneumatic tool oil). I pulled the head and removed the cylinder, all rings were...

  5. Tips, Tricks, & Homemade Jigs
    I decided that what I really wanted to talk about was how I go about solving problems. During the process, we also make a fairly simple circle router jig using the router that it is going to fit on. It's a nice feeling being able to speak out loud and voice my ideas. I think about a lot...
  6. General Woodworking Discussion
    Hi, I am a consultant working on a project in the tool industry and I would greatly appreciate your insight for my project! I was wondering whether carpenters use levels in their work, and if so, how many levels do carpenters own? Is brand important for a level? If so, which brands do you...
  7. Hand Tools
    I am a beginner woodworker looking into getting some real tools for myself. However, I have a $100 USD budget. What hand tools should I absolutely get? (They can be electric if you want to suggest a cheap cordless drill or something.) I already have a decent tape measure, claw hammer, and nails...
  8. General Woodworking Discussion
    Hi there! I'm a newbie, fair warning, be gentle :icon_smile: Here's what I'm trying to accomplish; I have a 1 inch dowel that I would like for the end to be a semi-circle. So imagine the dowel, looking at it from a birds eye view, straight down, and the end is not flat, but a perfect...

    And do you just push it by hand, or do you need to use a mallet? Thank you. alex
  10. Power Tools & Machinery
    The motor assembly on my Craftsman table saw won't adjust to a 90 degree angle. The closest I can get is about 89 degrees but that is after jamming it as far as possible on the negative side of zero. Is there something I can do to adjust it? Or should I use my Sears warranty?
  11. Hand Tools
    I was cleaning out my late grandfathers shop so that I can carry on his legacy in wood working and ran across three of these tools. He was a very good finish carpenter, deck and home builder. The tools are professionally made with no markings on them what so ever. I know that there is no way...
  12. Power Tools & Machinery
    First time poster here. I've been carving wood for a little over a year now, making props from video games and a few small sculptures. I was using dremel for a long time, but they always die out after a month or so because the motor gets too hot and the coils melt together. New Brush caps don't...
  13. Woodturning
    So I am turning 9" diameter smooth columns (5 feet long) out of laminated maple, and I have been using some really crappy gouges I bought used when I first purchased my lathe. It's time to upgrade, as I am sure these tools are pretty much junk, and even though I am getting nice smooth results in...
  14. Design & Plans
    I just released a new SketchUp tool that draws a dovetailed drawer side for either a traditional or contemporary drawer, or a tail board. A traditional drawer is one where the bottom is generally made of hardwood and is allowed to expand/contract below and past the drawer back. A contemporary...

  16. Hand Tools
    I have a scribe with this company's logo "L STRUBLE & CO" on it and have not been able to find any information on the company or tools. The scribe is made of wood with two metal scribes....one being adjustable with a brass thumbscrew. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    anyone got any ideas of making tool rests without a welder? thanks
  18. Hand Tools
    Does anyone know what the tool below is used for? (And don't say tin opener!) I sourced it from an antique shop near Dundee, Scotland. http://wood-mag.co.uk/wood-gal/albums/userpics/10002/normal_DSCF0364.jpg http://wood-mag.co.uk/wood-gal/albums/userpics/10002/normal_DSCF0360.jpg
