« Part 5: Making my Plane Swap entry Part 6 of Around the Shop series Part 7: Practice Moldings with my Stanley #55 »

I made a quick video while testing out my Stanley #45 8H and 8R bases. It was quite fun, this was my 2nd time trying this.

Well done Moss. Going to try it this weekend. How much fine tuning did it take to get the H&R’s working?

Awesome! Very inspirational, Mos!

I saw the finished piece on the Forum, but cannot view the video on this crappy iPad, but will head to the PC for pleasure and lessons! LOL.

Edit…just watched the vid on the wide screen…twice! Bollocks to a shop router, I want some of those H&R’s.

You make it look easy, Mos! Lots of practice, I assume.

Very cool, Mos. I need to come up with a few sizes of H&R’s to play with. With prices on the 45 sets, though, I think I’ll go for some woodies.

Thanks Kevin. Almost none, actually. It’s really easy to set up, just put the iron in first, tighten it down, then slide the base all the way over until it’s touching the iron. That’s it (apart from depth adjustment).

Thanks Terr! Believe it or not, that’s only the 2nd time I’ve used the H&R bases on the #45… 3rd time using any sort of H&R combination for molding

They aren’t all that cheap, but then again, they’re cheaper than modern wooden hollow and rounds. A small (probably half) set of wooden H&R planes is on my long list… I’ve been wanting to try making some for a long time now, just haven’t plopped the funds down to get the tools I need to do it yet.

My biggest issue with the #45 bases, is that they come in #6, #8, #10, and #12, and I’d ideally like smaller than that for some stuff

Looks good mos, I’m about to start on a few hollows and rounds myself. Gonna do a laminated plane, two parts and cut the bed and escapement on the table saw. The blade blanks are pretty expensive though. I can only make a few at a time :(

I hope to sometime this fall/winter. The blanks aren’t too bad when you consider buying a pair of H&R planes from a modern maker like MS Bickford will run you $425… I hope to do it in the traditional method, with one piece plane body… should be an adventure

Great work Mos and nice how-to video. Hope you and Wally blog about your H&Rs too. Looking forward to that.

Thanks Brit. I fully intend to blog at least one of the H&R builds, that’s for sure. Unless I only do one, then I’ll blog all of them lol

This needs to be linked from the #45 forum. Very nice work, Mos. Only video of the Stanley H&Rs in use that I’ve seen that actually results in a profile.
