What hand plane do I have? #1: Stanley hand plane

09-20-2009 05:15 PM by lightvet | 8 comments »

Hello, I am trying to find out more about the Stanley hand plane I have. I have visited websites with a lot of information but I am still at a loss as to production date, etc. Under the frog stamped on the bed is c 74 1/2, the frog has c 44 on the bottom and U 4 (vertically) on the other side. The lever cap/ chip breaker has 8 U on the bottom, and the blade has “Defiance, by Stanley, made in USA, No. 1205) on it. Anyone have any suggestions for info? Thanks, Jeff

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #4: Take only memories, leave only footprints

09-20-2009 03:56 PM by Bothus | 7 comments »

Today I went into the shop to put the tools and equipment I used back where they go for the guys when they come into work on Monday morning… but I had to do just a little work. I’m not hooked or anything, I only work when I really, really need it. I ordered replacement wheels for the HTC mobile base. I should have them on Monday.

Grizzly Tent Sale

09-20-2009 12:49 PM by dustbunny | 22 comments »

The day finally arrived, and there is a brand new band saw sitting in my workshop!! I’m sure now that it would have been easier to have ordered and had it shipped (free shipping), but that wouldn’t have been as interesting. My husband and I drove to Williamsport PA on Friday, a 6+ hour drive, stopped in to Grizzly an hour before closing to check out the band saws for Saturday purchase. I was almost running through the store scouting everything out, spotted the band saws, and b...

DeWalt RAS Series

09-20-2009 07:24 AM by davidroberts | 10 comments »

I bought Mr. Sawdust’s book over a year ago anticipating I would soon find an older DeWalt RAS for the right price. The recent blogs by Blake and Patron really fueled the fire and I renewed my efforts. I’ve been cruising CL for the past months and while there must be 25 RAS at the moment on CL for my area, they were just not what I was looking for. My big problem is I don’t have a truck so would need to rent a trailer and all of the RASs I wanted to look at were up to a 2...

Arched Bed #2: Strike a Chord

09-20-2009 07:10 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

I have found that two dimensions are especially helpful in designing arches; the radius of the arch and the length of the boards that make up the arch. If you do a search on ‘Woodworking Formulas’ with the added keywords Spreadsheets, Arches, and such, you will hit on numerous sites that either have formulas like the one below, or java script calculators on their webpage, or even spreadsheets free to download. One of the best I’ve found was written by Paul Huntington, an a...

Wall Hung Console #5: Arc jig, bending form, and more mistakes

09-20-2009 05:46 AM by captkerk | 2 comments »

I left the last installment realizing I messed up the dimensions on the end brackets and while I’d like to say that’s all behind me now, I haven’t worked on that yet. I played around on SketchUp a little and realized that I might be able to alter the curve on the end brackets even though I already rough cut them. Or I might just cut off the 3/4” I need to and leave it as is. I still haven’t decided. What I did get done was work on making the curved front ap...

Now that I am done with the flag cases, I am on to try some new things. Jockmike2 has been suggesting for some time that I try making some signs. Well, I went to Arnie’s in Greenville today and bought some templates and a piece of wood to make a sign. I am planning on woodburning the first sign. Will post pics as I get it done. Thanks Jockmike2 you turned on a flourescent light in my brain andit hurts :-)
