Re: Show us your axe!

So many axes, so many saws, they are all my favorites. 4lb. Rixford with Atkins 390. 4.5lb.Kelly Perfect, heavy but authoritative. Simonds 503 with 3lb.

Re: Restoration Paint colors?

The only color I typically use is Rustoleum oil gloss yellow and on the smallest part I'm most likely to lose.

Re: Saw filing gauge initial setup?

Initially you should've shimmed down from your original jointing. Best thing you can do now is re-joint and use a straight edge and feeler gauge to measure the raker depth down to the actual chord of the saw's arc (assuming you'll be swaging the rakers). Swage to the pin to 0.009", then start shimmi...

Re: HDPE dial indicator

Granite tile businesses give away samples of polished stone as samples of their products. It's very flat and makes a good surface to zero your dial gauges.

Re: HDPE dial indicator

Some of that difference may be in the saw plate itself. If you run your indicator around on the body of your saw you will likely find high and low points of a few thousandths. Depending on where those high and low spots are, you can get different readings based on where the gauge sits. Cupping on on...

Re: Filing Class

I did a few when I lived in Virginia. North Carolina is the closest place that I currently know of.

Re: Filing Damage On Atkins 334 Teeth- Not Sure What To Do

That would be a pretty wide M. Either way, you've got a lot of jointing to do and will burn up a few files in the process. Is it worth your time? Plenty of GA tooth discussion here if you search for it.

Re: Two New Saws

The saw actually took a full stroke, as it was pulled back through the kerf, just not a long stroke. I had my kids with me, so everybody got to practice their bucking skills. We double-bucked the corners but went to single bucking as we got deeper into the cut. We never stopped sawing, just changed ...

Re: The Woodwright Shop - crosscut conundrum

Roy gave the 60 second filing class. He got his point across and his examples, particularly the dado using a knife and chisel was a good visual. He held the chisel at a low angle, positioned the way a swaged raker would peel out curly noodles. It would've been a neat segway to swaged rakers, but he ...

Re: Two New Saws

I have a couple toppers that I take out as go-to saws. Both are 513s.

I needed a longer saw on this big chestnut oak, but it's the saw that I had.

This one was a little longer.
