Not super stoked on the water mark lol but I couldn’t fit this monster saw in one picture. Craftsman 16” 11ppi 3.5” depth. This thing can cut some monster tenons. Currently up on the eBay store! Link in bio.

These have been lying in wait but are ready for some drilling action... we'll be putting them to good use during our July Timber Frame Workshop. Oh yea. #boringmachine #timberframing #handtools #millersfalls #timberframe

After about 45 minutes on the 300 grit Trend diamond stone I finally got my Millers Falls 22” plane blade flattened. That is one hard piece of steel..

I had a couple of minutes this weekend to do some quick cleanup on the Millers Falls no 300 hacksaw that I picked up last weekend. It came out a little splotchy where there was some plating loss but otherwise it came out pretty good. I can probably shine up the splotchy areas with a little more work. It is huge relative to your box store hacksaw of today. It can handle 10" or 12" blades and there is a nice quick blade tensioning lever. It was new in the 1949 catalog and made atleast through 1961. By 1981 it was a no 300-1 which means it probably had been cheapened up. #millersfallsmonday #millersfalls

Sometimes hand tools are better than power tools. I put a heavy chamfer on the edge of this coffee table top. I’m nearing the finish line now! #woodshop #garageshop #handtools #stanleyplane #millersfallsmonday #millersfalls #makersgonnamake

Moved these machines around. This is much better. Also a poor picture of the wood storage shelf. The workmate table in the middle is my sharpening station and also at the moment router storage.

Millers Falls Langdon Acme Mitre Box, size 2, no. 73, patented in 1909. Shown here with a premium Simonds backsaw, 26” long, 11 ppi crosscut teeth, and a 4” cutting depth. It was purchased in 1919 by my wife’s grandfather, H. Evans Sloat (1899-1979), a union-certified finish carpenter and plasterer from Reamstown, PA (Lancaster County). This mitre box was a prized part of his tool kit. Between 1918 and 1963, he worked on hundreds of historic homes in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and throughout Lancaster, Berks, and Bucks Counties. He built his own home by the time he was 40, and used this saw for all the trim work. With a 10¼ ” cross cutting capacity at 90° and 7” at 45°, he could accurately cut crown moldings, door casings and window frames, as well as the occasional furniture pieces.

Adjustable stops on the head of both saw guide posts keep the teeth of the saw clear of the groove in the gib just below the the steel plates on the saw bed. Spring-loaded “elevators” or locking mechanisms on both the front and rear saw guides holds the saw raised while loading the piece underneath the saw for cutting. Depth gages on the bottom of each post enable the woodworker to control the depth of cut, useful when cutting tenon cheeks. A length gage provides an adjustable stop for cutting multiple pieces to the same length. A graduated arc plate (badly pitted by corrosion) show the miter angle to which the saw is set. Two spring-loaded locks in the guide posts hold the saw elevated when not in use.
The thumb lever at the front locks or releases the saw support so it can be swung to any angle. A notched bed plate provides a positive lock at the most commonly used angles. The red enameled bottom plates are roughened to keep the work from slipping. The ductile iron castings were painted satin black.

This restoration project was inspired by the Instagram posts of Mike Flaim (@mvflaim). I really admire how well he restores vintage miter boxes and hand tools.

Spent part of the day finishing piles of partially completed restore projects. I’ve got little projects all over the shop and not a flat surface to set something down on, crazy! Marples carving set that was all rusty along with some Jennings Auger bits. Got the North Brothers push drill assembled and it works nicely. I’ll probably blue the hardware on the Millers Falls handle to match the other one I restored this winter.

I scored a no 78 in it’s original box in reallllllllllly good condition 100% japanning. It just has some rust on the exposed metal parts and that’s it. Also my first plane in its box I’ve scored. Big day for me! 🤓🤙 #woodworking #millersfalls #handtools #handtoolwoodworking #woodwork #woodworkshop #restoration #rust #handplane #handplanes #stanleytools #handtoolsonly #tools #toolbox #vintagetools #antiquetools #woodworkingtools #wood #craftsman #woodcraft #woodworker #handmade #ancient #history #historynerd #collection #collector #furnituredesign #woodcraft

Vintage brace & bit and alder barn door assembly, before varathane finish coats.
Hanging it was where the fun really started. Colorful language makes the low-speed/high torque glories of this worthy antique come alive.

Completed the shelves. Next thing is to add drawers on the left hand side of the support. The right will be misc. the top shelf on the right I’m building some plane slots to have all my planes ready to go. More pictures to come when all of this gets finished.

Made a quick clamp rack this past weekend as well. In the last week I made some significant shop improvements and there are more to come. I made this clamp storage, made a shelf for wood storage, made a shelf to hold my stereo, built storage under my bench, reorganize the tools and power tools to make the space more useable, added another light, surge protector for my equipment, got an actual trash can and that’s all I can think of at the moment it was a long weekend.

She’s not show quality nor will she ever be, but it’s a lot better than where she started. #itsauser #millersfalls #millersfalls22c #millersfallstools #woodplane #woodplaner #woodworking #oldtools #antique #semirestoration

Oh there's more. The wife went back in for a typewriter so of course I came back out with a stanley #5 (has patent dates) and a millers falls buck rodgers hack saw. #stanleysaturday #millersfalls

Didn't pull the trigger on anything at the Bernardston flea market today but scored at the @loottheshop wharehouse sale after. Millers falls 36 block plane (minus blade), mf screw driver, mf buck rogers spade bit set, mf 1/4" steel numbers, stanley 61 rule, and an saw vise. #millersfalls

I just got this for 40 SEK (5 USD)!! So plane nerds, am i correct in thinking this could be a Stanley No 7 type 15 from 1931-1932 with one of the high end Millers falls lever caps from around the same age? Flat sole which i forgot to take pics of. No patent stamps.

For #handtoolthursday my friend at the local vintage shop found me this set of #millersfalls carving chisels complete with the radius honing stone! #handtools #tools #tooksofthetrade

Went to a new location for work. Found this awesome table being used for storage. Traditional joinery and about 400 pounds from the look of it. Didn’t get a picture of the whole thing unfortunately. The top was 3 inches thick and had a 5 diameter.

Scored some 'new to me' hand tools last week at a local second hand store. This is my first hand plane, excited to restore it and put it to work! Anyone have any tips on restoring hand tools?
