It probably the most versatile tool any of the above trades can use. It’s german manufactured, as we’ve been selling these units for over 15 years, with only a few returns…very reliable tool.

Your Questions About Woodworking Tools



Helen asks…

Which tool is best for woodworking?

I want to do some woodworking, but am unsure which tool is best for doing letters and other things of the same nature, I have talked to a couple people and have had mixed answers, so is a hand held jigsaw or a scroll saw better for what I am trying to accomplish?

Thanks in Adavance!

Dusty answers:

Scroll saw, all the way. The width of a jigsaw or bandsaw blade makes tight turns very difficult- though a bandsaw can handle thicker material than a scroll saw. You also have a lot more control with the flat table of a scroll or band saw than with a handheld jigsaw- you can use both hands to guide the material.

I miss my scroll saw…

Sandy asks…

Thomas asks…

How can I build a jewelry box with only a dremel and a circular saw?

I lack woodworking tools but would like to build a basic jewelry box for my girlfriend for Christmas. I’m pretty handy with tools and have a dremel took with just about every bit there is, minus the router attachments. I also have a good circular saw.

Hopefully you guys can help, thanks!

Dusty answers:

Make a basic box with the wood, with the circular saw and one for the lid that will fit the bottom, most of the work will be with the circular saw. You can use the screwdriver to make decorations in the wood by heating it and using it as a wood burning tool.. Draw a design and heat the screw driver and draw it over the design til you get it like you want, or buy a wood burning tool. Then varnish it with clear varnish enamel, or just paint it and draw a design on it.

Susan asks…

What are the four first power tools to purchase for a woodworking shop.?

I have a really good contractor style tablesaw. Then I have a handheld jigsaw and a 5′ orbital sander a good router table and a few good clamps and a good handheld drill. I am interested in a jointer a planer, drill press, mortiseing machine and everything else but I dont know what would be the next powertool to get, I was thinking the jointer but I am not sure. I am going to be building heavy topped desks and book shelves .

Dusty answers:

I know that a planer or thickneser is very handy to have. I used the thickneser the most or everything because you always need to get the thickness correct. Then the table saw which you have and then the other very useful tool is a belt sander, those orbital ones doesn’t work as well as my arm and good sanding paper. We had a belt sander behind an adjustable bed. The morticing machine is a waste of time because with a drill press hand drill and chisels you can do the same job. Drill press next. A jointer I am not sure about we had industrial finger jointers.

Your Questions About Woodworking Tools



John asks…

where was the woodworking tool the jigsaw invented at?

no the first jigsaw was invented in 1946 by a farmer

Dusty answers:

Http://meaptocs.bosch-pt.com/boptocs-mea/Category.jsp?division=gw&language=en-GB&ccat_id=87569

As per the site listed above, BOSCH, invented the handheld Jigsaw in 1947.

Http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/bltools.htm

The first band saw was invented by William Newberry in 1807. Samuel Miller, 1777, created the first Circular saw. Tabatha Babbitt, a Shaker, and improved upon both by building the first sawmill Circular saw and the first (thin) Band saw that was used for fine cutting. She invented the separate spinning wheel heads that made this possible.

I collect old tools and I GUARANTEE that both sites, listed above, prove this answer correct.

Charles asks…

Do the Amish men have hobbies? Would it be frowned upon to do hand tool woodworking?

I ask partly because I’m curious as to how much of their daily lives are regulated by the church, and if they can conduct their personal business like everyone else as long as they abide by the rules of the ordnung.

Dusty answers:

Meh, they just secretly sneak off to the city night club whenever they feel like it. Men are sneaky, rules do not bind them.

Bacon be with you.

Carol asks…

Does anyone know why the frog on a plane (woodworking tool) is called a frog?

Just curious, learned about it today in a RISD ID studio class.

thanks!

Dusty answers:

According to all my dictionaries and a quick on-line dictionary check, the origin of the term is unclear. Frog is also the term for part of a bow for stringed instruments (Violin etc.), an indentation in the face of a brick, the little spiky thingy in the bottom of a vase that holds the flowers in order, part of a railroad track intersection, and a part of a horses foot. It also describes a scratchy throat. Oh, and it is also an animal!

Lizzie asks…

anyone know of any woodworking hand tool sites?

I have an antique hand plane I’m trying to repair and need help.

Dusty answers:

Try woodcraft.com. Also try looking up Arts and Crafts style woodworking on google.

Tips on cutting straighter with a jigsaw?

I’m just getting into carpentry and I love it and while I build up my tool collection I’m gonna have to work with what I have. So far what I have been Doing is cutting most things a little longer then neccasery then power sanding to fit even. Any tips are appreciated.

Dusty answers:

The jigsaw has a metal plate you slide across the wood as you cut it, right? If you clamp a straight edged piece of wood onto the thing you want to cut, you can press the edge of the metal plate against the straight edge when you cut so your cut doesn’t wander around. Also, it makes a big difference if you match the right style blade on your saw to the material and purpose of your cut. A deep blade with large teeth to cut thicker wood where a rough cut is okay. A thinner shallower blade with fine teeth for precise cuts or cutting laminate or plastic. And a metal cutting blade for metal.

Good luck! Get a circular saw next. :)

Helen asks…

To what degree do you think this person should be responsible?

I moved out of state for 4 years. We stored some things in my mother-in-laws garage. She was fine with it. No problem. We arranged it neatly and took stock of all that was there. After about 2 years she called and asked if she could let a relative have our kitchen stuff to set up their first apt. Sure. That was fine. Help out those who help you.
When we returned home and began to get back our stuff, we noticed alot missing. Okay, fine. But… I had nearly $2,000.00 in auto and carpentry tools that were gone. Some of I had most of my life. When I asked what happened to my tools, she just shrugged her shoulders and pretended to have no idea. I’m pretty sure she had nothing to do with it, but I’m also all but certain she knows who did.
Shouldn’t she feel at least I have the right to know which one of my dear in laws took my tools?
I’ll bet if $2,000.00 of her stuff came up missing from her home, there would be a police report and a file on her home owners insurance.
I know this is a long question but my wife and I argue about this everyday. She don’t want to say anything to mom because she probably doesn’t want to know who it is that took my tools. I just want my stuff back or at least the chance to face the thief.
Oh, man, if I could just find out who took them… that would go a long way towards chilling out this issue.
Mostly aggravating was just the total lack of concern she expressed. Shrug the shoulders, turn up the hands, and tilt the head to the side as if to say…
“Not my fault, not my stuff, not my problem.”
This stuff was “stolen” out of her garage. So why no police report? Why no outrage? Not even a look of surprise.
And yes… I am gonna have to get over this, but damn, it really pisses me off!!

Dusty answers:

You left expensive items unsecured. If blame is going to go anywhere it should start with you.

As for insurance, you could talk about it if she had known your tools were there.

I think you have to man up and let this go.
