Hello all. It’s been a spell since I have been here. But glad to be back. I have a magazine rack table I found at a friend house, who were nice enough give it me. It is need of a lot of care. The top has sepaerated into three pieces and those into smaller sections. So the table top will need to be replaced. Glueing it back together will not work. I was wondering if there is a bit to do the edge or are two bits required and what would they be? Any help will be much appreciated.

Looks like two bits to me. A cove for the top, a bead for the bottom. Looks to be about 3/4 thickness.

Maybe this chart will help you search for and identify the best choice. Look at the cove and bead bit, fourth row, third bit. It looks pretty close.

Hello DRTom. Yes you are correct it is 3/4”. Good eye. And the bit you pointed out is very close if not spot on. Thank you. I will see what I can find for a bit. Is there a section in the forum where I can ask questions about woodworking tools (a hammer and chisel). Again thank you.

Thank you DRTom and James. Both your articles will be helpful. I don’t have large machines, but they do what I need and at the time I could afford. Tom your article mentioned putting the machines on cabinets I believe. I have. Since I share the garage with the wife and Jeep that only leaves me a 1/3. So I went to a re-use it store and found pre made cabinets that had been removed for a renovation. Added casters with brakes and I can move them as I need. It works. James I had seen that article before but forgot about it. I wont forget again. Some of my hand tools are refinished ones I picked up at the flea market or thrift shops.The older the better. Old rusty tools need love too. That’s why I was asking about hand tools. I have an Estwing hammer that the company dated for me but there was a question about it they would not answer. The chisel has no name or handle and I was wonder if someone might be able to put a manufacture to it. Thank you both of helping. Don’t know how I can help but would give it try. Wayne.

Hello, thank you 4DTinker for your ideas. They are good leads and your right, I can come with my own edge as it will be my top. Tom, don’t worry about get nostalgic. There is nothing wrong with remembering the past. The hammer is a 16 oz. Got it at the flea market. Per Estwing it was made between 1930 and 1940 and the hole in the end plate was for bees wax. We I asked if the bar across the posts (studs) they claimed up. I am trying to figure out if that was part of the original hammer or did someone add it because the studs were too short. The chisel is, you guess it, flea market find. There nothing on it as to who manufactured it. I just thought someone might have one or recognized it. I will get on my table as soon as I finish my grand daughters dollhouse. Grand children can keep you as busy as a wife, and I love all dearly.

Rob that was an idea I started with when I got the table/magazine rack. But a couple of the boards have separated even more. I haven’t put a clamp on them to see if I can pull them together yet. It’s worth a try. Tom, I think I picked this up for a buck. Someone had already beat on it and rolled the tang over. A wee bit of heat and gentle bending and I got it back straight. Now for a handle. Thank you everyone.
