How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #3: Preparing the Body and Sole

11-16-2016 02:00 PM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

When last we left off, we had done rust conversion on all of our parts except for the main body. So let’s pick up there and take care of body and sole. Just to remind us of what our patient looked like when we got it: I said in the last entry that I would be using a couple different methods of rust removal in this process. The first was the phosphoric acid bath we used on everything but the body. Well, we’re not using that (well not JUST that) on the body. Now, if ...

Shop Tips & Tricks #19: The Art of Middles of Symmetries

11-20-2016 03:12 PM by GnarlyErik | 3 comments »

I don’t know why I did not think to include this as a part of my blog about centerlines since it is very closely related. I will call this notion ‘The Art of Middles of Symmetries’.  Simply put, all symmetrical shapes by definition have a ‘middle’, or centerline. Stating that notion as a corollary to centerlines, you might say: “All symmetrical shapes have an EXACT middle centerline.” Take advantage of this simple fact by using it when laying out ...

Workbench #3: Paint your wagon: the wagon vise in Sketchup

01-09-2013 05:40 PM by mileskimball | 3 comments »

OK, so the last blog post was long on ideas and short on pictures, so here are some iterations of the wagon vise. The first concept was to replicate in steel the approach I took in my first Roubo-style workbench in 1991, which had a dado in each side of the wagon that ran along a walnut track screwed in the sides of the wagon slot in the bench. Here’s what it looked like using angle iron instead of walnut: As you can see, on each side I used three pieces of 3/4” angl...

Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber)

01-04-2014 04:16 AM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single prop Cessna. The shed is now used to house the small tractor and slasher that we use to keep our grass airstrip cut. The other side has two small 8’x8’ offices for me and my co-worker that we use for language study as we...

08-04-2014 09:25 PM by benchbuilder | 3 comments »

Well its about 4 weeks into this project, building an infill hand plane of my dreams, and all I have to show for it is a lot of drawings and some wooden templets. Trying to decide on the plane I want isn’t the problem its the material, have you ever tried to just go buy a sheet of 1/4” brass, or a low carbon steel flat ground. How about that exotic wood that makes these plane really stand out. Well I am here to tell you that I now know why the pros charge the 800 to 1500 dollars. ...
