sander

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 9:17 pm

I got a new sander, from a post on Craig’s List.  A widowers husband had, had a shop and she was selling off the last of his tools.  Doing a little research, it is an old Mead Specialties Co. sander. It seems to work fine

grinder

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 7:51 pm

I hooked up my grandfathers grinder to day, the motor is new, I got it at a garage sale somewhere. I also ordered a new grinding wheel for it, which looks out of place.  I am realizing that this has no tool rest, which makes for a challenge when trying to get an even edge.

green monster

I finally bought something off of Craig’s List, an old Powermatic 45 lathe.  It’s heavy 600lbs or so, the green monster.
