I sometimes make decisions on the fly. As long as I can still fly after the decision I think it’s okay.
Any crash you can walk away from is considered a landing. Not a good one but a landing.

Showing the minimum setup necessary for a plane to function at a working level. Sorry about the sound quality. I set up closed captioning so you can read what you can't hear.

You can spend hundreds or even thousands trying to buy the tool that makes you an expert woodworker. There are dozens if not hundreds of sharpening plans that show a variety of methods to bring the edge of a tool to the perfect edge. I'm not going to attempt to pitch any method of sharpening. I will talk about the need for perfection. Before you buy into the concept that cost makes value consider what the end result of the process will be. For the controlled removal of wood few things have the versatility of the common plane. The goal is to hold the blade at a controlled angle to the wood and limit the depth that the blade can penetrate the surface. Set the blade for a heavy cut and it can tear off a millimeter at a time. With the blade set to barely show below the sole of the plane it can take off wispy thin .04 millimeter shavings. Does it take a liquid nitrogen quenched blade honed to 12000 grit on a diamond paste strop, held in a polished bronze plane body with rosewood trim to achieve the heights of cutting wood? Turn off the power tools, pull up a chair and learn how to really use the tools that built most of today's world.
Think green, live lean.

I was running some wire and thought I should share a trick with you.
Trifocals aren’t just for goofy old guys who can’t see. Well okay they may be for them too, but they are helpful for working on those Honey Do List items too. Anytime I have to work overhead I get out my safety glasses and revel in the ability to focus without a crick in my neck.

Okay we've got the outlets on the kitchen counter done and I am finishing up the wiring to the washing machine. That was a part of the problem. They had everything run through one wire going into the kitchen and then fed the house from there. Long road but I'm getting there.

Fireplace Damper Repairs by Old Sneelock's Workshop
Published 12/17/2019

When we bought our house we knew that the fireplace didn’t work. The damper was frozen shut. As part of the annual maintenance I checked the mortar in the fireplace chimney and realized it determine needed major repair. We hired a contractor to rebuild the chimney. When I recently examined the damper to determine the best method of repair I got some bad news. The damper actuator was rusted shut.

As Old Sneelock I like tools in all their shapes, sizes, and uses. Above all I like sharing what I've learned during a lifetime of working with hundreds of men and women who make their living with tools. Follow along while I build, repair, adapt, and upgrade houses, furniture, cars, lawnmowers, and of course tools.

When I started the Old Sneelock's Workshop channel there had been some discussion on the Old Tools mailing list. [email protected] of how to sharpen a woodworking auger bit. I have a fascination with old tools, mainly barn augers. I had studied the problem of how to bring back old, rusty, dull auger bits to useful condition. Word pictures are an art. Very few people can get an idea across to a diverse audience using the written word alone. I worked as an Industrial Engineer for many years. One of the facets of the job was to create work instructions for building and assembling hundreds of differ-ent products. I decided to use the skills others had taught me to put up a video showing how to sharpen an auger bit. If a picture is worth a thousand words, 30 frames a second adds up to a lot of words really quick. Video let's me share what I've learned with a larger audience. I hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoy making videos.
