Just came across a 40 year or so collection of veneers that a gentleman was using for marquetry work and for instrument building. It’s more veneer than I will ever use in a lifetime, but I just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to pick through it. Figured I could turn around and sell most of it for what I paid via Craigslist. But...

What the hell is wrong with my air compressor??? - 26 replies
Turned on the compressor this morning, It’s in the garage with a line running out to my shop. Went out to the shop for quite a while, came back and the compressor was still running. Figuring I’m a moron and didn’t close the drain valve last time I drained it, I checked that, and it was closed tight. The motor is running, i...

A few days ago I posted a request on the Hand Plane of Your Dreams forum to some of my buddies to help out if they could. I was thinking maybe I could squeeze out maybe a combined 50 dollars or so. The response was overwhelming. And we are now at 21% of our goal to cover Jesse’s medical costs so he can just focus on surviving this. I ...

I am looking for a new frog for a Stanley 5-1/2. I had a road trip Kansas this week and stopped at every antique store/flea market along I-70 and added a couple planes to the collection. I was so excited about the fact that I found a type 9 with minimal rust and tote and handle in great shape that I failed to notice that the lateral adjustment...

Mystery Hand Plane??? - 6 replies
Craiglist posting says “old wood plane, don’t know who made it” I know it’s impossible to tell who made it from the picture, I’m just wondering if anybody can tell what type of plane it might be, and if you think it’s worth $10 plus an hour and a half drive to go get it, any insight would be much appreciated...
