Frosty Previous Member   I think it really nice that you used your Father tools as a decorative feature in the lounge.
Location: Australia Beaut collection Lazyjack, reckon your Dad must have bought half that stuff off Noah.
Location: maine i've got a similar (though smaller) shelf unit in the shop.
Sometimes I do it the slow way just because I have time and the tools are so quiet and friendly.
On the shelf below the bowsaw, second tool from the right is a planelike tool with a curved handle on the end, and another one two shelves below it.
Frosty Previous Member   Lazy judging by the height of your bicycle seat, I am guessing you are vertically challenged. Have you noticed that in most photographs of Lazies he has somewhere in the photo some underpants. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. CatBuilder Previous Member   I'm guessing these aren't tools, either.
If you look closely at the largest one and the smallest one, they have a centered mounting bolt to mount the flat side onto another flat surface. Give me good old plastic and spring boards made in China - some woodworking fanatacs dont know where to stop. CatBuilder Previous Member   If these are standing blocks, the guy did a pretty bad job. I thot that, too but the one has sharp edges where you wud hold it and none are particularly ergonomic.
The world record is said to be 100 miles at an average speed of nearly 60 mile per hour using a 580cc engine and getting nearly 8 miles per (imperial) gallon ! It also seems to address Tom's point: this pic shows the vehicle with the skis out of the water and running just on its tracks - at least intermittently. It is important to design for the proper paramaters - Reynolds, Euler, Froude, or Strouhal numbers.
Location: Baltimore MD, USA Not that this is not the proper place, cause it is but isn't your version of lift almost symantics? A boat that floats and a propulsion system where blades are dropped into the water at the bow, conveyed to the stern, pulled out, and recycled.
If we redesign the blades so they sit on the end of shafts extendout out of the two sides of the boat, be have a traditional row boat, canoe, kayak, or Roman warship. Location: Baltimore MD, USA I not only don't understand your modern roman warship I also can't tell if you are being sarcastic. Location: Florida Well, I have seem a snow mobile cross a river, and they all did not make it.
Paddlewheels as they spin do not produce lift, they produce suction in front and just below as water enteres to fill empty area. Location: Milwaukee, WI A good example of lift on tires is the hydroplaning effect on a car. The wheel works better in the direction that the cleats form a cup rather than the reverse. Location: netherlands wont be easy beating that mighty prop, yet multiple interesting insights came forward.
Location: Baltimore MD, USA yipster, I would fully expect a prop to out tug a paddle wheel.
September 9, 2009 by Bob 3 Comments Over at the WoodenBoat Forums, a newcomer asks about hand tools for small boat building. Two bevel gauges, one an ancient Stanley #25 (from Sandy Moss I think), the other shop made from a hacksaw blade and a rivet.
The little carving chisels were for carving the fiddleheads on the ends of the boat’s stems. The only other shaping tools I use are a Stanley Surform and a half-round cabinet maker’s rasp. A friend and I are trying to locate the name for a Stanley swivel-style plane that planes the curvature of a hull.


We belibe it was used on large older boats possibly dating back to WWII…plus or minus.

From what you describe, I’m guessing it is the #13 Circular plane, featured on this page. Ia€™m sure there are trustworthy vintage tool dealers on Ebay, but I havena€™t found time to sort them out of the worlda€™s largest yard sale. Location: Eustis, FL Festool makes some of the finest tools in the world, but God they think a lot of their products. One tool they do have, which is hands down the only one I've found that actually works, is their detail sander.
The typical list is a DA (duel action, orbital), which does duty as a rough to medium surfacing work, detail and finish sanders (jitter bugs, etc.) for the fine work, belt sanders of various shapes for rough work. I'm sure a machine could satisfy your lover as well, if not more then you, but some things should be left to your own hands, as they are much more sensitive to the surface requirements then a machine.
Location: Western Massachusetts I own numerous Festool Power Tools and while they are pricey they are the best that I have ever used. When there's no rush, or when it HAS to be right (like using spokeshave, rasp and scraper on a hand-carved tiller with an S-curve in the grain itself instead of laminations clamped to a form), and when it's your own boat, you have a right to enjoy your work for once. At the end of the sailing season, when I've had enough good sailing adventures, I begin to look forward to implementing all the ideas I had all Summer to modify and improve my boat---- and even the process of repainting and varnishing is enjoyable if it's not rushed. We manufacture and sell specialty tools and supplies to the do-it-yourselfer for repairing MerCruiser sterndrives. I am very familiar with the strength of a community forum as I participate in a video editing forum daily. What a revelation: apparently, there is a whole subculture out there that does this stuff!!
That sounds quite efficient to me - especially considering it is probably a highly tuned 2-stroke engine. I also conceded that a literal definition of lift does not apply to the snowmobile but that real world application=effective lift, what shouldn't float fails to sink.
However, putting sides on the wheel to prevent loss of water in that direction would improve it a lot, I believe. What I think has come to light, at least for me, with this discussion is how the test changes when you think about a high speed craft skipping along the water.
It is probably more useful for cabinet makers than for boat building, but is a gorgeous tool nonetheless. However, I do trust and have done business with each of these folks: Jon Zimmer, Patrick Leach, Sandy Moss, Walt Q, and Bob Kaune. The big frame saw was cut down from an antique Disston D-8 rip saw, and made roughly to Josh Clark’s design. Before I built my frame saw and bow saw, I used a Rigid 14 inch band saw to cut the inner stems and to resaw a few strips of cedar for the laminated bulkheads. They have this cool plunge circular saw, but at $1,200 bucks, it better select and stack the lumber it's cutting too. Every other I've used, you could stall the motor by leaning on the tool aggressively, leaving a useless vibrating sissy. Nothing looks as good as a hand rubbed piano and no power sander will produce this finish, though Festool may soon market one for $2,400 bucks that comes close. Even my (handheld) power planer has a reduced clearance wood base - the aluminum bases have far too much clearance behind the cutters - I use mine for cutting the rolling bevels for glued planks, the base is extended both sides to rest on the earlier planks. What you need to keep in mind in considering them is that they for the most part are designed as a system. Their dust extractors work in conjunction with all of their tools (except the drills) and make an amzing difference. My guess is that the wheel will need a stationary deflector or volute to keep the output flow horizontal, but it should work OK.
The only way to avoid this is to spin a closed wheel very quickly and letting the surface tension and whatever the name of the effect of spining objects do propulsion. The 12 foot length is comfortable for the size of the shop and is suitable for planing boat lumber up to 16 feet long (with some lumber shuffling of course).


They were surprisingly inexpensive (less that $30 for the set of 4), and surprisingly good.
Most are silicon brass and are known to fracture easily if not fed into the right size hole. Since those cuts, and after making the new hand saws, the only use I’ve had for the band saw is quickly cutting waste wood down to disposable size.

I did grow up on the Chesapeake bay thus have that brakish water running through my veins SO I have seen what works in real life yet lack the education in theory. Rather than argue about something I construed as symantics I came back to what I thought still might be a viable propulsion system. The bench dogs, full width planing stop on the end, and the bench hook are all shop made accessories. In my view, knowing all you can know about a tool, including how to refurbish it, is only an incremental step beyond sharpening. Resawing is so valuable for boat lumber; getting two (or more) boards for the price of one is wonderful. Liberty Tools is a real neat place, but you have to go there; no mail or Internet ordering. I've actually used the weight of my body against one, without it bitching a lick, still cutting and never stalling. The pictures showed a boat hat appeared to be moving quite fast, easily in the 45 MPH range. Also the fact that the snowmobile can achieve speeds of 60+ MPH with a 500 CC rotax engine also suggests that it is efficient.
I thought some might make the distiction between lift as created with a wing versus thrust that might be created with say a prop pulling a plane vertically. However the arrangement, if the system for propulsion is virtually the only thing in contact with the water you have greatly reduced drag.
It's a feathering wheel, the arms on the paddles, #3, and the cam, #4, working together to accomplish feathering with the crank on cam #4 being used to adjust the feathering action.
While in Maine, I roamed the antique tool stores and found dozens of these for prices in the $70-$80 range. I would think a belt system the width of the boat but just shy of the stern, say maybe one foot, and very close to the hull should allow any water ejected from the belt to exit the stern for added push. Now I don't know how practical it would be for say a 40 Ft craft with a full lenght moving belt system but it certainly sounds interesting. Granted in that analogy the prop it's self creates lift but thrust creates vertical movement. As far as feathering goes, this system seems to be pretty reasonable and possibly usable compared to some Rube Goldberg contraptions I've seen. I am careful in what I buy and where I buy it in order to make the most of what I refurbish. The bow saw is a delightful, lightweight, highly maneuverable saw made from plans found at Gramercy Tools.
Their shop vacuum is also a great product, but again the price suggests the third Reich is attempting a pay back. There is a simpler feathering system I found once that seemed pretty workable also, if anyone is interested I could probably find it again. I eventually found this one from Jon, and don’t regret paying him more for finding a better tool than I could find by wandering around.
Being issued a patent doesn't mean a thing will actually work, sometimes it means you are pretty sure it will work, at least sure enough to give them enough money to issue you a patent. I burned out one Home Depot type that I had rigged to the sander, but the Festool is quiet, turns on and off with the sander and uses a bag.
