I save all of my best jointing for #420

Still needs a fair amount of tuning, but hey it works. @juicec5

That's a good looking mill. And yes I stopped at a drive in to take photos. Can't wait to start playing around with it tomorrow now that the shop is all good to go.

Life has become so busy that the only time I get to design is on Sunday afternoons. I look forward to it all week, a truly creative bubble in my week of making. While some designs happen fairly quickly, right now I’m designing the most complex fabric design I’ve ever created so instead of having something complete to share, I’m sharing snippets, elements as they come together. So here’s this week’s instalment - an old compass. Looking forward to finishing this mammoth effort and doing a few other (faster) designs that are queuing for attention...

Cookies .

The humble biscuit aka, lamelo aka cookie. I think nowadays ppl have forgotten about the biscuit. It's such a useful joinery technique that helps align pieces and adds some strength along the way. Today you see either ppl going overboard and dominoing everything or going the cheap and easy route of the pocket hole. Now, I use both of these methods. But the key is to use them where they belong. I'd love to start seeing ppl using a biscuit jointer (or plate jointer) more often here on IG. In my opinion, it's a great way to build table tops and some cabinetry. It works get for aligning the boards while the glue does its job. And it's 100% better then pocket holing a top together (I love pocket holes but I also hate how they are being used today). So all you woodworkers out there that don't have one yet, go get one. New or used (my was used and is awesome and was cheap). And learn the joys of this tool and how it will add to your shop.

Moving machinery is no joke, especially when you're not using any heavy equipment to do it. While I was inching this (roughly 2000lb) lathe along, I realize this task is like any goal. You have to take baby steps to get there, but eventually, it adds up to something big. Like moving a friggin huge lathe through your shop single-handedly!
Well, my wife did help spot me and move stuff outta the way, but y'all know what I'm getting at!
There's your motivation, so go kick it this week! What has everyone got planned?

The nock of the arrow and the stone tools I used to cut it in. Two thin flake saws and a thin piece of sandstone I shaped. I used these to cut the hafting as well such as in our last post.

It may not seem like much, but I’m pretty pumped to have a (working) dust collection system actually connected to a tool! The only problem is that I can’t run both at the same time 😂😂😂 BUT I finally bought the breakers so I can actually do the electrical this weekend and put the DC on its own circuit!

#whatsthis it's not a #toolbox #scrollover This is Keith's first recovery machine. Apparently it was sold with its own cylinder, because there is a cord that you plug in that notifies you when the tank is full. Well there was a cord. I had to jump it out to get this puppy working today. Takes about an hour to recover 5 lb. But it does a thorough job. When the gauge reads 0 it is empty, no residual refrigerant hanging in compressor or accumulator. #oldschool #oldschoolhvac #oldschooltool #hvac #hvaclife #hvactools #thankgodfortechnology @appiontools @fieldpiece.instruments

Found this grommet machine forgotten in a corner of our workshop covered in decades of dirt. The original plan was to give it a quick cleaning and put it back to work. Therefore unfortunately no before pics. To my suprise i discovered these beautiful brass parts and gave it a full restauration. I am really pleased with the result.

Merry #woodshavingwednesday ya filthy animals. Here's my ECE Primus smoother making oak wisps on some future stair steps. Took me a while to get used to the little guy, but it's tuned in and working really well now. •
