Stanley #66 Hand Beader - 4 replies

Here is another freshly restored tool. It is a vintage type 7, (1893 – 1899) #66 beading tool. It works much like a small scraper (similar to the #80) but uses a small beaded blade instead of a flat scraper. The fence allows you to reference off the edge of your work. Originally, this tool would have come with two fences, the straight one ...

Stanley #7, Type 4 - 1 reply

Well just a couple days ago I sold my “user” #7 plane, so I figured I would tune up one of my other ones to be my “new” user. This is a pure type 4 Stanley, made between 1884 and 1894. It has the small blade adjuster knob with the Bailey Patent dates stamped in it, no frog adjustment screw, and no lateral adjustment lever...

A rare Disston "back"saw?? - 7 replies

Hey folks. I picked this little saw up at an antique store the other day. The price was right and it’s in good shape. Some discoloration to the blade but it will clean up fine. I’ve never seen one like this, and I’m trying to figure out if it was made by Disston like this, or whether it was a user modification of long ago. This...

Hey all, I haven’t asked a question on here in some time, but I have something that I just can’t seem to find the answer to. I’ve been using a flush trim router bit, the type with a bearing, to template route some curved pieces for a current project.

SPALTED WOOD, what types have you seen? - 24 replies

I think that spalted wood can be some of the most interesting and nicest woods. We have all heard of spalted maple, maybe spalted birch, and a few other woods (?) as being common for spalting. In my wood collection I have a very nice piece of spalted zebrawood, and I also recently bought some spalted walnut! When I dig them out of the pile, I...
