#1 Dislike blogs. This is a documentary.This series of posts was created to document a recent estate find and hopefully gather some information from the antique tool collectors that troll LJ for entertainment. Did not want to pollute the HPOYD thread and potentially lose information. Back story: I have been working wood for 40 years as a hobby. As I become more senile and slow down from my impetuous youth, have learned I like the “FEEL” of working wood and started using hand...

Part 2: Ohio Tool Wood Plane

03-13-2018 06:26 AM by CaptainKlutz | 0 comments »

Here is 1st plane I captured pictures of in the tool chest: It has Ohio Tool Company, Columbuis Ohio imprint on very thick plane iron.The trailing end has been hit with hammer and the makers mark is gone, so I did not post a picture of it.The cap iron screw is mangled, and due length appears to be replacement. The wedge for retaining the iron looks homemade, so am curious if it is original? I can grab some more images or record dimensions if anyone needs them to help me und...

03-13-2018 07:02 AM by CaptainKlutz | 0 comments »

Here is plane #3 from antique chest:I grabbed this one next and it has 2 nickers embedded on sides of body and iron is skewed. The body also has a nice tapered chip exit that appears to help push chips out to one side. Even the wooden iron wedge has matching curve shape on it. :) Does not appeared to be heavily used, as the iron seems to have machined edge in it, and not been sharpened very often.This plane has “J. Chaney” makers mark and “EPC” on front end ...
