  2. Design & Plans
    Hi Everyone. I've been wanting to get on here for a while and get into woodworking. I recently got a vanity table with the mirror from FB Marketplace that seems to be from the 20's or 30's. I think it must've been a catalog item from Sears or Montgomery Ward because there's a large number...

    Hi everyone, I've been wanting to get into woodworking for a long time now. I mainly just want to pick up some basic skills to fix furniture I might find on FB Marketplace or estate sales. I love history and antiques and vintage aesthetics. I also want to try my hand at decorative carving. I...
  4. Hand Tools
    Having a hard time figuring out the manufacturer/model of this old hand plane that I was given recently. No identifying marks aside from "Made in USA". Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

    You can only put up with the little Harbor Freight $50 drill press for so long.... About a month ago I was jumping around on the normal classifieds (Craigslist / Facebook Marketplace / etc ) and this caught my attention. Didn't know much about it, but I knew it was old, I knew it was heavy...
  6. Hand Tools
    I though a few of you might enjoy seeing my recently rescued circa 1928-30 Craftsman model 5264 smoothing plane. Craftsman tools were introduced as the newest “House brand” by Sears, Roebuck and Co., in the 1928 Spring catalog. The “Wavy” Craftsman trademark on the brass lever cap inset and...

    Hello, my father passed away recently, and my family is cleaning out our big storage unit. We need to get rid of these power tools, and I would like to know if they are things that I can post on Craigslist for a price or just give away. I'm sorry for the picture quality. I wasn't the one who...

    Hi all, I was recently given 2 old hand planes (pictures below). I am pretty new to fine woodworking, but would like to get these things into working condition. Unfortunately, the blades (and some other parts, I believe) are missing. I would really appreciate it if ya'll out there could help...
  9. General Woodworking Discussion
    Hi guys, So I have started a proper thread now (some of you might have seen this post selfishly taking up space on another) still in a bid to find out what kind of wood this table is made from. I have even been to look at places selling vintage/antique furniture and I can't find anything like...

    I recently acquired a rust-covered Craftsman table saw, model 113.27520, ca. 1956. I've been restoring it and it's been going well. The biggest issue thus far was that the original Craftsman motor was bad. I just bought another old, identical motor, model number 115.7534. I know very little...

    Hi Guys. Newb here. I recently bought a Powermatic 8 inch jointer and a Powermatic Model 15 thickness planer off the craigslist. Both were supposedly bought new in 1995 and never fired up. They had (have) a thick coat of rust on the exposed metal parts. The belts have definitely taken a set and...

    I have an older model Sears Craftsman 10" table saw. It may be contractors' model, as it is powered by a 220V motor, and cuts heavy stock with ease. No model numbers are visible (motor model is T48BD-129), but I believe it is a 1960's model. Arbor is mounted directly on motor shaft. It needs a...

    I am helping my elderly parents liquidate my deceased brother's wood shop. I'm pretty good at merchandising but am out of my depth in pricing these power and hand tools. Part of the problem is I don't know what some things are, or which accessories go with which tool. Is any member in the area...

    Hello everyone. my name is David and I am new to this forum. I just purchased a Homecraft table saw off Craig's List. Someone mentioned in one of the forums that great prices can be found there. My purchase was no exception since I paid a great price ($40). The table is small but a nice size...

    I'm in the process of having the Amish take a 160 y/o house on my farm. I'm loving learning about all this old wood! There is some cedar but 95% of it is old growth American Tulip/Yellow Poplar. What U can see in the photos is about 65% of the wood. There are about 20 huge 14" X 14" X 20' hand...

    I found a 1958 10 inch craftsman 113.29990 table saw. The only part I can't fix or find is the overload protector assembly (the red button) on the back of the 3/4 HP motor. The motor # is 115.19810 and the part # for the overload button is 5220407. Dose anyone know a source for this part? These...
