Hand Tools

Woodpeckers Radius Set. Nope.

I would assume most of you that do any woodworking at all are familiar with Woodpeckers. They are pretty widely known as suppliers to some of the best measuring and squaring instruments around. Recently, they released a new cornering jig and it’s a pretty smart design with seemingly unlimited value… that is, until you see the price – $280!

Unfortunately, I happen to need such a jig for a project I’m working on… But I just couldn’t get myself to spend $300 on red anodized aluminum. So, I searched Google and stumbled upon a really young guy that does some interesting (read: nerdy) projects from his basement. One of these projects was the fabrication of a cornering jig.

Dude just saved me like $275, so he gets a feature!

The Specialized Tools Of Traditional Hot Rodding

I thought you guys would get a kick out of this… A couple of weeks ago, I started a thread on the H.A.M.B. asking folks to take pictures of the vintage tools they use to work on their hot rods. The result is a honey pot of amazing images and tools.

I really, really like this stuff…

Check it out.

Weaver Degree Alignment Plates

I thought you guys would get a kick out of the above… Essentially, they are 1940’s era degree alignment plates made by Weaver. My buddy found them at an abandoned sign shop of all places and they are now hard at work in his hot rod shop.

I love stuff like this.

Vintage Craftsman Ratchet

“Tooling” around on Google and stumbled upon the above ratchet… and fell in love. Anyone know anything about this one? I’m no vintage Craftsman expert at all, but I’ve never seen one with such a grip. Homemade maybe?
