What’s your process of getting panels down to thickness look like? Also I like the black, blue, and maroon japanning all in a row!

Cutting a tenon to fit the hole in a Millers Falls no. 2 auger handle so I can finish them. Stearns spoke pointer and A A Woods & Sons hollow auger, restored both of these this past winter, makes easy work and fun to use. Two different braces makes it easy also.

Gluing up some panels for drawers. Got a deal on this Douglas fir. Don’t really care what the drawer structure is made out of. I got some real nice white oak for the drawer fronts.

Third bake on the enamel at 300 degrees. Make sure no painted part touches anything. Table saw is full of various stages, 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there.

Millers Falls No. 34 6” brace. Patent date 1890, this one seems older than the last two I restored. I have never seen one this gunned up in the jaws, pad wouldn’t rotate, jaws were reluctant to turn also. Finally got it debunked and it’s soaking in Evaporust overnight.

Warning: complex project ahead. One board. Five hooks. 10 holes. OMG. Even with "projects" like this mahogany coat rack, it's fun to break out the hand tools. This Millers Falls No. 2 hand drill is an awesome thing. A few cranks and hole done. I guess they were on to something, ha. #woodworking #handtools #millersfalls #diy #coatrack #handdrill

Bringing out the brace and bit collection for today’s #flatlayfriday, including a corner bit made by Millers Falls 🙌 All braces are available, possibly some drill bits if I have any doubles.

I'm learning how to hunt for handtools.


Now I need to learn when to catch and hold. I let this one go, learned the error in that, and fortunately was able to go back for it. (Well, my parents went back for it.) I've been wanting a hand drill for quite a while - some of my earliest woodworking memories are of playing with Dad's small Clipper drill.

This is a Mohawk-Sherburne two-speed hand drill. @jjjjayhawk informed me that this is a consumer brand (like Stanley Four Square) made by Miller's Falls. Mohawk-Sherburne was active between 1935 and 1949.

Once I get this home it's getting a good cleaning. The knob for switching speeds is frozen, but the action is incredibly smooth.

Much pertier! And a new blade. Still needs some work. I need to spend a little bit more time leveling it out. I got a fence comin in the mail. Also maybe some shims in the table leaves to make them flush.

SLIDE to see more please---> I was at Brimfield Flea market recently and in a stall that had only clothes and glassware sat this little plane. It was so shiney and new. Their only tool. It was NEW shape Millers Falls No 9 plane. Most you find are rusty, cracked handles or the finish is all gone. This one had mirror like parts especially cap iron and it was the Millers Falls type I had searched high and low for. A Type 1. It differs in that it has rosewood knob and handles and the raised metal letters "Millers Falls" around the front knob. The company quickly stopped that and switched woods to the orange-red stained goncalo alves. It was so cheap I had to tell the guy it was worth much more but he said no. As I left in a cloud of disbelief he stopped me and said "you don't want the red box it came in do you?" I almost fainted when he handed me the original box which he had just fished out of the trash. He figured it was worthless. Brimfield is known for not being cheap. This was. And the booth had been open 4 days before I got there. Sometimes I will never understand how things work. Grateful. This plane was made in 1929.

Just prepped this Millers Falls No.10 wide-bodied smoother ready to ship out to its new owner today. What a great plane to work on! I have one other in my backlog which I’m looking forward to restoring too. Hopefully it’ll turn out as well as this one did. .

Got this Millers Falls 3" Belt Sander from my dad.
Only the knob is missing and it need some cleaning. A great heirloom.

How about a #handtoolthursday post! Our gate was falling apart, so I rebuilt it today. I broke down and bought a drill, but I still only have hand saws. For my cuts I used the Millers Falls Langdon mitre box with Disston mitre saw that I picked up at the auction in Lititz, PA last month. Like everything I bought that day, it was sharp and well maintained by the previous owner and ready to work. You can still see the original Millers Falls red paint on the deck. There’s a 1903 patent date on it, so it was probably bought between 1903-1910. #handtools #handtool #woodworking #handsaw #disston #millersfalls #mitrebox #mitresaw #unpluggedwoodworking

I normally don't give most craftsman planes a second look but once in a while I come across one that is worthy. This particular model was made by #millersfalls for Craftsman celebrating their Golden Jubilee in 1936. Wonderfully preserved with the original box.

We're drilling all of the mortises in our small timber frame with this antique Millers Falls boring machine. It's likely around 100 years old and still in completely great shape. It never ceases to amaze me. If only tools could talk. #handtools #timberframing #millersfalls #theyearofmud

For #millersfallsmonday, here is a Millers Falls no 5 non-adjustable block plane (Stanley no 102). This one is an earlier model with Millers Falls cast into the front. It also has 'no 5' cast in the back. It has a little paint loss where you'd probably expect from use. I borrowed my daughters Stanley 102 for comparison. #millersfalls

Thing 2 helped me get the chuck apart tonight.
There were two holes in the bottom half that I missed in all the paint and gunk. We dug through the bolt can and put a couple in his little bench vise that lined up with the holes in the chuck. We set the chuck on the bolts, wrapped the upper half with a scrap piece of leather, and used a pair of channel locks to break it loose. All of this was so we could dry, wire wheel, oil, and reassemble.

Great Millers Falls Store Counter Display. It was found with small saw, but not sure if was used for saws..If anyone knows please share. In any case it still has great vivid color and lettering. A must for your #workbench #hardwarestore or #millersfalls collection. Don't let this one get away.

The #millersfalls No. 1980 drill is disassembled.
I was able to clean up the wooden bits and discovered an #ownersmark under the off-white paint ("J J J" applied to the ferrule with a pointy tool). That's always cool.

If you are near Portland, ME, there are about a dozen or so vintage tool dealers setup in the Rockler parking lot until noon. I picked up a Millers Falls 47 coping saw, a disston backsaw in need of some refurb, and a knockoff panel saw. None of which I really needed. #millersfalls #disston

After doing a little more searching I think the Craftsman 3705 block plane that i posted earlier was made by Millers Falls and not Sargent. The Millers Falls no is 37. The third pic is a little small but is the description of the 37 and is from https://oldtoolheaven.com/ It looks just like the 37 and is the same size.

Found some things yesterday. A 3/8 inch mortise chisel. I can't make out the manufacturer. A 3705 Craftsman block plane. I think made by Sargent. And a Millers Falls no 8. Same size as a no 3. Late type. 1940s or 50s

Here's a #cooltool / #toolofshame hybrid. It's a Millers Falls 1980 ratcheting, two speed, hand drill (late teens/early twenties). It's been painted a nice "eggshell" white and the screw cap is missing, but still pretty cool from a mechanical standpoint and will be fun pulling apart to see how it works.

We don’t see much from Millers Falls around here, this may be the second and third item I’ve ever found locally. Any other west coast people see much around?

A few little guys hitting the shop Sunday night. Promotional pieces like the mini 4" level from Johnson Levels and the deceptively heavy Acme Metal Co paperweight always catch my eye. .

I received an old eggbeater drill from a co-worker. It was quite beat up and rusty since it was sitting in his garage for years. .
.
It used to belong to his father and he said he’d rather give it to someone who’d use it rather than a “collector”. .
.
It was manufactured by Millers Falls Co. from Massachusetts and it was first made in the 1860s. Though I’m not sure when this was made since it’s quite different from their other designs. Usually it’s not a solid disk gear in the center of the mechanism but rather most of the weight is punched out. .
.
Anyways let it soak in vinegar overnight let the rust fall off and after an hour or so of scrubbing, oiling, grease, BLO, and pastewax it works like new. 😁. .
.
I couldn’t remove the old sticker cleanly so I can paint so I decided to leave the “old rustic looks”.

A very nice #millersfalls no 1408 angle gauge and a lovely #brownandsharpe micrometer from a different lot of the same auction. I’ve become quite fond of the look of these B&S measuring devices. Starrett and Mitutoyo are my users, these are just for collecting. #measuringtools #auctionfinds
