  • Found This In The Firewood Pile

    Just finished the Country Cottage Grandfather lock from Dirk Boelman's plans. White oak and black walnut with the top ornament from bloodwood. Every piece is 3/4" thick. Quartz movement with progressive Westminster chimes and a seperate pendulum drive unit. Top three sections have an access door in the rear. Finish is 3 coats of Waterlox Finish And Sealer, with a 4th coat of Waterlox Satin. 1st coat brushed, 2nd coat sprayed, 3rd and 4th coats brushed, and sanded with 400 grit after 3rd coat. Has a hand rubbed appearance. Thumbs up to Waterlox. Stands close to 6 1/2' tall. The oak is from cutoffs from a dry kiln that gave them away for firewood. And some of it was.

                          Thank you for all the kind words. I started working on it in Feb. Mainly on the weekends because I'm still driving over the road. All the pieces are 3/4". Most of my lumber comes from the sawmill and I sticker and dry it. Happy sawdusting.

                                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
