We fell deeply in love with this noticed the moment We laid sight on their truncated handle poking right out of the bottom of a rust stack

Today i will smooth the brand new area on the surrounding location by feathering they in with 220 and 320 determination paper.

The task now is to fit along with with the outdated wood toward latest. And also to complicate circumstances, i will make use of boiled linseed petroleum generally handbag to carry from the warmth and chronilogical age of the wooden. The BLO will darken the colour on the tote dramatically, and many other things so on the more mature timber on the tote and less on the brand new spot….so that means i need to stain this new horn darker to match the ensuing darker walnut after oiling. Perplexed? That is why it is best to apply on scraps.

Very, after buying a shade after some experimentation, discover the fresh horn discolored. You will find exactly how much darker really before we oil the entire handbag. As soon as we oil they, it’s going to mix beautifully…

This is often days the trickiest element of handle repairs….you can stain this new area to match the outdated wooden as it’s, but once you placed a brand new finish on it, the existing timber and brand new material digest complete in completely different methods and do not dye equivalent. So you need certainly to expect this difference ahead of time and color the wood towards finished goods, maybe not inside natural.

Following the BLO, we use two applications of 1lb cut amber shellac then cleaning the steel plate and walnuts.

I’m very pleased using the means this spotted arrived on the scene…I’m offering their someplace of honor to my traditional saw wall alongside my current Disston#99. ?Y™‚

The Disston secret…..solved.

The started an extremely busy few weeks from inside the store lately….I’ve come neck-deep in saw rehabs and sharpenings. I got plenty of requests for saws over the past 2 months and I also’m just making up ground today, plus I finally done the SuperSawBench, and possess tried to squeeze in certain sharpenings for my own personal saws, and the typical rigamaroll that happens along with it all.

I have already been stealing energy every now and then to manufacture advancement to my mystical original Disston #99…a noticed that I found in the finally Spicer public auction. You can check completely my initial thoughts on they right here.

I have conferred along with other saws geeks and hand appliance punditry also it appears that it is certainly an earlier Disston #99. I became perplexed at first given the beech handbag with a lamb’s tongue, but my personal preceding resources declare that was actually undoubtedly what sort of originals arrived before they switched over at this site to an apple tote of much more subdued styling, as viewed at Disstonian Institute and elsewhere. Therefore, it would appear that that implies this little girl is a little of a rarity…… ?Y™‚

Anyway, once you understand she ended up being unique determined us to feel higher certain using the impending rehab…..and they took me a great six-weeks of hemming and hawing to choose just how to patch the tote, which was the major focus with the process and greatest obstacle to overcome.

Step one would be to find a nice bit of beech to perform the vital patch with the handle, and that I browsed highest ( reduced (my dad’s firewood bunch) along with between (Josh Clark and Mike Hendershot…fellow software geeks) to dig up that special part….which, by-the-way, must be quartersawn and experienced by about 150 many years to suit precisely. ?Y?‰
