Jim,

I broke my old draw knife in half that I use on my cedar logs in my projects I need to get a new one. What do you recommend, do you have one and how much?
Title: Re: Timber Framing Tools for Sale
Post by: Jim_Rogers on December 31, 2003, 05:23:16 AM
I'm posting this here so that others can see how the process works when you want to buy a tool.

Jeff:
There are three in the tool box for sale.
There is one with folding handles, and two with regular handles. One of the regulars is 9" long the other is 10" long, that is the blade lengths.
I'll send you some pictures by regular email so you can see them.
The one with the folding handles is 8" long (again blade length), and is $47, the 9" one has a curved blade and is $38, and the 10" one has a straight blade and is $42.
As said on the for sale page, these prices do not include shipping.
In order to do a shipping costs, I'll need the following: first a business address. The UPS store that I use says it costs less to ship to a business. Now if it's a home based business it's still considered a residence and therefore doesn't qualify, but how does the counter person know that this is a residence is still unknown to me. But you'll need to provide a contact person's name, business name, business address, city/town, zip code, and phone number (that's for the UPS driver in case he can't find your address, at least that's what they tell me). Once I have all this info and put the tool in a box then I can take it to the UPS store and get the shipping weight and the cost. To figure the shipping costs that what they need the weight and the address. Once the shipping cost are done I can tell you the total. Most of the shipping I've done to the mid west has been about or less then $10.
You can pay by check/money order/or paypal but we'll have to wait till the check gets here and clears before the package will go out.
Let me know what you want to do, after you look at the three photos that I'm sending you.

Jim,
I'd like to see that 10 foot draw knife :D :D :D  If you have a 10' draw knife it must have been Paul Bunyan's :D

In all seriousness, I may be in the market for a boring machine.  I am not a collector so name brand is not important, just need a functional tool with 1 1/2" and 2" bit.

Is there a pick of the litter, you could recommend?

Max:
10" (no name) (Straight with folding handles)-$40-G
 
If I understand symbols correctly the ( " ) symbol means inches and the ( ' ) symbol means feet.

Do you need your glasses or eyes checked?  ;D

Pick out a machine they all bore holes......

You can go down the street in a Chevy or a Ford, just as good as a Cadillac...

It's your choice depending on what you want to spend.....

Jim,
The 10' thing was humor, I quoted someone from a previous post that asked you for pictures of a 10' drawknife. :o  (There was no error in your description.)

Are you selling the boring machines with bits or are the bits all sold separately?  If I email you my address can you send me higher resolution pictures of the Snell-adjustable N and F2

Jim,
You would not happen to have a 1 1/2" boring machine bit for sale?.  Can not seem to find one, and having trouble with my Wood Owl 1 1/2" bit in Oak. (Tip spinning out).

Max

Post by: Jim_Rogers on November 12, 2006, 07:15:06 AM
Max:
The list was current as of that date.
No bit that size on the list, so the answer is no.
But we can look for one for you, and when we get it not list it and sell it directly to you.
What you'll need is a bit with the lead screw tip threads very fine.
Coarse threads are for softwoods.

Jim,
Yes keep you eyes open for a 1.5 inch bit for me.  If I can not find a 1.5 in the next day or two I most likely will buy the 1.25 (6S)  you have.  Please tell me shipping to 54531, so I can prepare a check.

Of course I would rather find a 1.5 inch bit. 

Thanks Max

Hello Jim,

I'm building my first frame and I need some tools!!!!! 8)

I'm cutting out the timbers for a 14x16 garden shed, I'm only doing this in my spare time as a hobby so, bare neccesity . . . . . . . what tools would you recommend I buy from you?  ;D

Title: Re: Timber Framing Tools for Sale
Post by: Jim_Rogers on January 04, 2007, 12:25:43 PM
If you go to the timber framing section of the FF (Forestry Forum) you'll see a list of tools suggested for each timber framer to have in a thread called: "Tools for Timber Faming List".
Here is a direct link to that thread: Click here for link to Tools for Timber Faming List (http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php?topic=6403.0)

Look at the list, see what you have already, and then draw up a new list of the things you need.
I'll help you with your new "tools needed list"....

Title: Re: Timber Framing Tools for Sale
Post by: WoodDean on January 04, 2007, 03:50:20 PM
Thanks Jim.

I looked at the list . . . . . . danG that's a lot of tools for just a garden shed.  :o

And since this is my first TF project, I don't have any of the important stuff.

I'm working with 4x8, 6x6 and 4x4 's.

I don't have any TF chisels and my saw is probably too small.
I do have a milwaukee right angle drill and big bits.

Here's my guess:

2 inch slick
1 inch corner chisel
Big Al

Depending on your advice, I think I can get away with the milwaukee for boring holes but I would like to have a Makita beam saw.

WoodDean, be careful using that Milwaukee for boring holes.  I bought one of their right angle drills a few years ago to do just what you want to do, and I ran into a little problem.  The chuck on my drill is held on with a left-hand threaded screw...you can see it if you look inside the chuck.  If you bore too deep and get a lot of wood shavings on top of the bit, it will bind up when you try and back it out and the screw will snap.  It really doesn't take much to snap it, and since it's a left-hand thread I had to buy new ones from the local Milwaulkee repair place, and they aren't cheap (as far as machine screws go anyway  ;) ).  I had to back off quite often for the first hole, and then overlap a little extra to give the shavings someplace to go.  Those right angle drills must be made to drill through holes  :-\

I need to get around to buying one of those boring machines from Jim one of these days  ;)
Title: Re: Timber Framing Tools for Sale
Post by: WoodDean on January 05, 2007, 08:27:34 AM
Funny you mentioned that . . . . . . .

I just got my drill back from the repair shop . . . . . . and guess what I had done???!!???

I was drilling holes in some floor joist with a 2 inch hole saw to run water lines in the basement, I was just about to drill the last hole when the chuck fell off.  >:(

 . . . . . . I guess that means more business for Jim!!!!
Title: Re: Timber Framing Tools for Sale
Post by: ohsoloco on January 05, 2007, 08:50:21 PM
Now that I thought about it some more, I think the chuck on my drill is threaded, and screws onto the drill.  Using it to go "in" a hole tightens the chuck, but when you try and run in reverse, the chuck starts to screw off, and this is what knocks the head off of that special screw  ::)

 I bought a 2" chisel, 3" slick and a corner chisel from Jim. All were used but in excellent shape and sharpened to a razor sharp edge. I've never bought a new tool that was sharpened as well.
 I also got a rock(?) maple mallet from them, very nice.
I have been making wood splinters out of some 8x8 hemlock beams with these tools. Hope to have some pics in the spring.
