I guess this is kind of a venting process. Ive recently restored a few Bailey’s (#3 and 2-4’s) and its getting addictive. Ive cleaned some and Ive tuned some but putting a fresh coat of paint, polishing the brass, and refurbing the totes and knobs is very rewarding. Ive accumulated more baileys than I need, but when I see one I want to make it shine again(hopefuly better). Amongst other hand plane stuff I am “refurbing” my 4’s. ended up with a union in the ...
Hey Folks, I’ve been pretty busy working on the shop lately, between plane restoration and a few past due projects that I had, I didn’t have time to make a new blog entry until now. Last week I got a lot with 10 bench planes out eBay, for a pretty good price. Out of those 10 planes there were 2 No’s 7 and 1 No 8. I couldn’t believe it, mi first No 8, and it was on a very sad condition. It is a No 8 Type 9 1902-1907, yes this baby is somewhere between 103 and 108 ...
Back in early November, I went to my favorite lumber yard and started looking at what kind of wood to use. I was interested in mahogany, but wanted to check out my options. They had some very nice ribbon mahogany. I went home and gave it some more thought. The next weekend, I made the plunge. I had only one problem, I kept seeing pieces that looked too nice to pass up! I ended up with way more than I needed for this project. I can rationalize it that I saved gas by not making an extra ...
Well, after taking all my rough cut boards and ripping them to final width and crosscutting them to final length on the tablesaw, and spending what seemed like hours (because it probably was) laying out all the cuts on all the pieces … I fired up my new mortising router jig … And cut my first mortises in all the stiles of the chest! I then went over to the tablesaw with a Dado head and started to mill my 1st tenons and all the grooves for the solid panels: Things went ...
Henry took a couple of pictures of the cauls. He told Luna that he needed to head into his office and made her promise not to leave the house. She said she would read a book. Henry took the paper with him, he turned on the shower, and only then did he read the ‘Big News’ The headline read ‘Missing’. An accountant with the prominent Manhattan law firm of Smith, Havershome and Blickstein is missing, and the Police commissioner Jonathan O’Rourke has indicated that the entire departm...

Purplev – read somewhere where you have instructions for the R4511. Can you give me a link to it. Thanks
Lucky Me. I always try to use a Push Stick when cutting small jobs. This Weekend I was cutting 3/16” Strips from a 16” 2×4. when I got closer to the end the blade grabbed the pushstick & threw it backwards. Actually my whole arm went backwards, pushstick into the palm of my hand, Pushstick blew into 2 seperate pieces. I thought for a minute or two that it might have broke my hand, but lucky me no damage as far asa I can tell except a little sore now almost 24hrs later....
