Looks like a plaster job. He's a hack though.
Holy crap! That guy is such a pro!
I bet he was equally fast using the hatchet for lath work.
I disagree. You just need to get the board up and he's doing it well and pretty clean. The guy with the trowel has to make it look good. I'd follow behind that guy. No complaints.
Yeah I totally agree! That's incredible! Faster than I can do it with a roto zip and drywall gun. (I mean automatic self feed Senco with screws on a strip). Really impressive!
I've hung a lot of drywall over the years and mud and taped a bunch too but it's always sporadic so I'm never able to get really efficient at it. That's really impressive to see how fast and good he is with that hatchet. Evidently I measure too much! Lol.
If you are going to score and hammer out outlets the least you can do is score the back side also. Leads to popped, broken rock around the outlets that must be repaired with little behind it. I was taught at one time to do it that way and am thankful that I learned better later on. But as long as it's faster...
I think one of the things we are constantly learning here is that there's more than one way to skin a cat.
I have not heard that since dad passed in 1991. I heard it quite often before that.
The trick is catching the cat when he knows you're gonna skin him.
alright guys, i'v been wanting to do this for a while, this is my "pre-ww1" tool box filled with tools that are, you guessed it, pre-ww1.
I challenge you guys to build a themed tool box like this if you can!
Whittled down a shovel handle for the 7 inch scraper and finally put a handle on the old pusher broom that has had half a handle on it for about 15 years.Found the scraper in a bucket of scrap headed for the dump it has a p stamped on it.
I lve an old tool when it has been re-handled or re-purposed.
We call that scraper a spud.
Stopped into an antique store on the way home from work and this saw jumped out at me. Disston d8. The medallion dates it to the 30s and no later than 1940. The blade is 27” long. Pretty good shape and the best part is it was only $8.
An old plane I use now and then.
Inherited this and some other old hand tools from my Father in Law about 15 years ago, along with an old Winchester model 57 .22 short. The .22 and all the tools were stored in a damp cardboard box in Hawaii for far too long and took a lot of cleaning up, but all came back to serviceable condition.
Interesting plane! And cool story too. Recieving items from family is always so cool. My father in law has given me some really cool things.
Looks like I can see some letters on the iron? What is the stamp? Can you take a photo of it?
Oh and lastly, what kind of wood is that? The grain structure looks like Doug fir to me but the color looks like pine!
@Yankee Josh it says Gage Self Setting Plane.
I haven't researched it too much, but I believe it is at least 100 years old (and perfectly functional, I might add).
No idea about the wood, but Doug fir was my guess as well. Buddy of mine in construction gave it to me - a single rough plank, 20' long, 2x10. Not a knot or check in 20 feet. I made a bench out of it using just hand tools (as an exercise to see if I could, but my elbows hurt for weeks!)
Nothing special but they come in handy on occasion. Wish they made one for the striker plate. It was really cheap at local antique store.
A few, non-axe pieces to come across the work bench on this rain & sleet soaked day
No 1035 made in China
4lb Woodings Verona US 97 Drilling Hammer
T.H. Witherby 1¼" Gouge
12 X 4 Backsaw
Nice stuff Miller! All beautiful and fun to look at! A fun way to spend your time no doubt... Looking at that witherby... being the bevel is on the outside wouldn't that mean it's used for dowels? Or at least on the outer circumference of something? I'm not all that well versed in chisels even though I'm a carpenter!
Thank you Josh
Good question An absolutely astute observation that escaped me
I do not know the answer
Paging @Brian Rust
I know @Brian Rust knows chisels
It can be used for dowels, but it is just a plain outcannel gouge. I have a Buck Bros. one that is quite handy to have around.
