Showing the tools and steps needed for the safe dismantling of discarded wooden pallets to obtain useable wood. The film also shows some of the items made by me using this recuperated material. thegreenlever.blogspot.com Music Link: www.archive.org Un court-métrage montrant les outils et les étapes du démontage de palettes afin d’obtenir du bois bois de construction. Le film montre aussi quelques-uns des articles que j’ai conçu et construit en utilisant ce superbe matériel de récupération. I have a few rules, which I adhere to in my selection and collection of pallets:- Firstly, and most importantly, I only ever take pallets which are of untreated wood — any signs of discolouration due to paint or chemical treatment render them unsuitable. Please check my blog for details of pallet codes. Secondly, I always ask if I may have the pallets — this obviously is when the pallet is on the premises of an enterprise or site. Thirdly, if you do take pallets from a site — leave the area better than you found it, apart from being courteous, you may want to come back for more and to leave the impression that recyclers should be welcomed. More often than not, after your first couple of visits, the proprietor or foreman will suggest taking the pallets without needing to ask. In my experience, from then on they will often start saving and putting out pallets specifically for you. Fourthly, safety – wear thick gloves, as pallet wood is sawn and splinters are a pain. Many pallets are



One of the most valuable tools on the job site is the pencil. Many of us use the carpenter pencil which can be easily picked up at any do-it-yourself centers. You might say it’s only a pencil. But remember time is money. When it comes time to sharpening your carpenter pencil you better have a knife or a sharpener handy. Using a sharpener on a carpenter pencil leaves a lot of wasted lead. With a good mechanical pencil you never have to worry again. The Art Alternatives pencil comes with 3 leads, an eraser and a built in sharpener. The pencil costs as little as .00 for the set.

Your Questions About Woodworking Tools



William asks…

Wiring to a work shop?

What size wire do I need for service to a workshop. I will need to go through attic and under ground. Total about 130 ft.. I will need to run a 30 amp Rv traveltrailer and small woodworking tools; table,mitre saw,small a/c, light,etc. Thank you

Denny answers:

For a basic workshop, I usually recommend a 60 amp sub panel. #6 copper or #4 aluminum is usually adequate (if you use TW or UF conductors you would need to increase the wire size by one standard size). While the size would be more than adequate for your current anticipated use, you would have plenty of reserve for possible expansion in the future without worrying about overloading the system.

Mary asks…

i have an 18v delta battery woodworking pack: drill,circular saw,brad nailer,jig saw. I can’t find parts .?

can’t find batteries or a replacement charger for these tools. is there any compatible battery that can be substituted?

Denny answers:

Here’s the Delta/Porter Cable web site: http://www.deltaportercable.com/

Mandy asks…

woodworking help…?

I really want to get into woodworking/carving, especially carving cool pieces of wood with a dremmel tool. Space is limited in the garage and stuff. any tips on getting started?

Denny answers:

Take a 2×2 board 8 feet long, draw on it to look like chain links. Remove everything that isn’t part of the chain. Whittle the links apart as you go. When you get done you will have a very unique wooden chain. I have seen them sell for a lot. When you get done post again and I will give you instructions on the next step. Be patient this is very time consuming

Betty asks…

how do i convince my dad to turn his shed into a workshop?

hey, I am a 12 year old boy who loves woodworking and i have heaps of tools, i have been wanting to save up for my own shed but they are too damn expensive… and we already have a shed but it is full of crap that half of it we don’t even need anymore, if he said yes i would clean it for him and stuff, even if i only got half of the shed it would still be enough. how do i convince him, he is a tough cookie to crack too… thanks

Denny answers:

Well, for starters, I know exactly where you’re at. You see, I started my woodworking at 11 years old to now being a master woodworker by trade. In my beginning, I to had a very stubborn father who liked to do things only his way or no way. We had this back room in the house that always seemed to be cluttered with stuff that no one ever used. You know, junk…The problem that I was facing is my father really never knew at the time how much interest and actually how creative I could be with the various woodworking projects that most would suspect a grown-up to have done. Like you, I was convinced that my dad wasn’t going to really cooperate with me by granting me the privilege of transforming this “junk” room, into a useful, learning environment. So this is what I did. I first cleaned the room in its entirety, paying close attention to what was actually garbage & what was not…I simply tossed all the garbage on trash day & as far as the remaining, “junk”, I built some storage cabinets out of some scrap lumber & stored this remaining clutter nice & neatly inside. I was able to attain 75% of the room for a efficient, workshop environment. I was still skeptical on my father’s reaction prior to the unveiling of my efforts. Would you believe that not only was he overwhelmed, in a good way, but he financed the remainder of $ to help build the necessary workbench & remaining storage cabinets to make this shop complete. I’m not saying that this is the solution, but it could be part of the recipe… By what you have already mentioned about your interests in a hobby shop, you’re on the right track…However, your choice of words seems to be a little distasteful for your age. I only mention this because when I was your age, if I were to ever say any kind of four letter word, I would have gotten punished in a physical way, which was severely wrong at the time & I highly disapprove. Please take this advice for what it ‘s worth, because the best thing about it is….It’s Free!!!
Take care & I wish you the very best in your bright future….Oh, & one last thing, No matter what, “Always measure twice & cut once”…You’ll see……………………………………………………………………………………………….

Your Questions About Woodworking Tools



Ruth asks…

has anyone ever built their own woodstrip canoe?

I was thinking about buying a canoe, then i saw some plans at Barnes and noble to build your own woodstrip canoe or birchbark canoe.I was wondering if anyone has ever done this and how much would it cost and if it was actually a good looking boat that works. I already have a bunch of woodworking tools so if you could tell me how much only the wood itself would cost or is it just cheaper to buy one?

Dusty answers:

I can’t tell you specifically about building a “canoe”. I have done a few but so long ago, I couldn’t help you with costs…

But I have built dozens and dozens of boats and even building one now… And my feeling about boat building is this:

Can you save money? Yes, you can save alot – if you really want a top quality boat.
Can you buy cheaper – Yes, if you are satisfied with a cheap boat.

But if you really want a “sharp looking – head turning – top quality custom-made boat… Yes, you can build it for alot less than you can buy… And of course, the bigger the boat, the more you are going to save, because most of what you save is labor…
What you really gain in building your own… Is a “better” boat then you can buy… And that is really the whole purpose of doing it yourself.

You need to check out this link:

http://www.glen-l.com/

They are really great people and they have canoe plans to build – as well as most any other type boat you can think of to build.
I am suggesting you visit their site only because they have a really good and very informative “website” – whether you buy anything from them or not… Their website is worth the trip just to see the beautiful boats they and their customers have built.

They have current up to date estimates on time and materials to build their boats… And they offer “study plans” with full Bill of Materials…

At their site, you can also see the different build processes with progressive build photos… Plus they have the largest customer base and largest “customer” photos, links, and forums as I have ever seen…
If nothing else… Their site will keep you enthusiastic over your project…

Happy and Safe Boating…
PS.
I don’t know about the plans you saw at Barnes & Noble… But let me just mention, If you buy the book… Who do you call when you run into trouble? The Author? The Publisher? Or Barnes & Noble? (Just something you should think about… )

David asks…

what is the name of a woodworking tool?

3 letters

Dusty answers:

Adz (sometimes spelled with an e)
Awl

Donna asks…

What is the need some have to give un-asked for advise?

There are very brilliant people in here, you (some) are very smart.

I woodwork, my garage is filled with woodworking tools & machines $30k invested. I also have a neighbor who have a small box of hand tools and can’t drive a nail straight…yet this doesn’t stop him from walking into my garage and giving me advise on everything I do. I usually ask him a few questions (over his head) and he say’s he’ll teach me later. My wife has an uncle that ask me very personal finanical questions (most I say I don’t know) and then procedes to give my money advise BTW, he’s a barber.
Point is: why do so many people insist on giving advise to things they don’t have a clue about. As a rule I never give advise unless I am asked…and then if I don’t know (often) I point them to someone who does know (seems simple to me). It seems to be difficult for some to say “I don’t know”, …what is this?

Dusty answers:

Sometimes it stems from a need to show off knowledge.

Sometimes it’s because you want to be of help to a particular person and you want them to care about you.

Sometimes it feels good sharing something that can be of help and there is no other motive.

Sometimes people advise because they don’t know what else to say or do when they see someone struggling and they don’t feel comfortable just standing there.

Sometimes people want something done their way so they tell another person how to do it so it gets done to their liking.

And finally…

Why do people give advice? I think it’s human nature to want to put your “two bits” worth in. Whether you know something or not, we all like to be listened to and we all like our input to be considered. We want to make a difference in the world…or at least to some people…

Steven asks…

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.

Lizzie asks…

wat is the power voltage on building sites for power tools in canada?

im thinking of moving to canada,im a carpenter and need to know if i should sell my power tools before i go?im living in the uk and on site here we use 110v on site…i also have 240v ..is there any way of converting them to suite ?

Dusty answers:

120V./240V. Single phase, should be available.
120V. Is easy.
If your other tools are designed for 240V. With
a grounded leg, I’d be very carefull about trying
to apply them on the 240V. Available, in Canada,
as both legs will be hot relative to ground.

Mark asks…

i am carpenter emigrating to Australia from ireland but don’t know what cities to live in ?

emigrating in the next 2 months whats the pay rate for carpenters can i bring over own tools or buy out there.

Dusty answers:

My husband is a carpenter from Ireland and when we came out to Australia last year he had no problems what so ever finding work.We live just outside Melbourne,and at the moment he charges around $45 to $50 dollars an hour.The further away you are from cities the lower the wages seem to be.We weren’t to sure whether to bring my husbands tools so we got my family to send catalogues over to Ireland to see what the prices for were like for new tools.We bought new tools when we got here as it worked out to be more economical to buy all new tools.We spent $7,500 for every thing,from drills,a chop saw,circular saw,air compressor,a variety of air guns,laser level,(you get the picture).What ever state you choose to live in,you Will have to get a health and safety card,in Victoria they are called red cards,and in N.S.W they are called green cards.They are not hard to get,You have to do a day seminar and at the end of it you get your card.I think my husband had to pay around $200 for his Victorian one.Carpenters can’t do every thing that a carpenter can do in Ireland,for instance you can’t do roofs(That’s a plumbers job here)unless you get yourself registered when can be a bit time consuming and cost a wee bit of money,but it is worth it.If you need any help with any more information feel free to email me.Take care.

Which namebrand of tools is best for woodworking?

I’m looking for a Christmas present for my dad, I want to get him a gift certificate, in order for him to buy the tools he needs for his woodworking shop. He is extremely gifted at making anything out of wood and usually will only buy the best. I have no idea which brandname is the best or which store or catalog would be the best. Please help if you can. Christmas is coming very soon.
He has built a kitchen table out of wormy chestnut, a beutiful 4 poster bed, a bassinette for his grandson, a tool chest, and a huge quilt chest. He also built new cabinets for a friend of his. Thanks for all the help so far.

Dusty answers:

It depends on what type of woodworking he does. There are many, many brands of different tools out there. To each his own. You could try this link. They have an online store and alot of very fine products to choose from. Maybe a gift certificate from a place like this and he can pick out what he needs or wants. Good Luck.

Here are some sites to start with. It also would be a good idea to see what books you can find at your local library.

(especially the Tool Museum link)

Does anyone know of any good stores to buy woodworking tools in the North Jersey area?

…and don’t say Home Depot or Lowes or you’ll get a smack bottom!

Dusty answers:

Since you don’t want to go to the Depot or the Blue Box, try the manufacturer’s website directly. I’m going to assume you want woodworking power tools. I included Jet and Delta’s websites.
