Veritas Combination Plane Comparison #1: Introduction

09-11-2017 12:58 AM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

First off, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank fellow LumberJock Dave Polaschek for inviting me to his shop making this direct comparison possible for us. I do not own the Veritas plane, so I wouldn’t have been able to compare them without his generosity letting me play with his new toy! Second, I’m going to throw out the disclaimer that this was by no means a 100% exhaustive test. We did not do things like study edge retention, sharpening, and haven’t done any prolonged use/testing of the V...

Vintage Stanley 45 Plane

09-19-2015 10:35 AM by CTinPompano | 2 comments »

Hello wood workers. I lost my dad last December who was a wonderful wood enthusiast. We’ve found good homes for most of dad’s favorite tools, but I’m wondering if any of you could help me to determine the value of his Stanley 45 plane. A picture is attached. I sure would appreciate any advice you could provide!

Fun with a Stanley #45 - #3: Tongue and Groove

03-18-2014 12:13 AM by Mosquito | 18 comments »

Using my Stanley #45 plane to cut tongue and groove. For the purpose of this example I am using a couple pieces of pine. I am using the 1/4” Tongue and Groove irons, and have the depth on the tongue iron set as deep as it can go. The Groove depth stop is set to match this depth once the tongue has been cut. The #45 is set up with the short rods as opposed to the long rods. There is nothing stopping a person from using the long rods, I just prefer to use the short ones when I ...

Bunk Bed Build #6: Mortising Rail Brackets & Plowing Deco Grooves

08-01-2013 07:34 PM by Mauricio | 19 comments »

Here is a little more progress on my build Installing the brackets on the bed posts: First I lay out the location of the Mortise with a mortising gauge. I need to get something better than this crappy Harbor Freight gauge but it does ok for now. Chisel out the ends of the mortise with a chisel. I start with my router plane set to full depth and work from one end back removing waste little by little. #71 Action shot! The smooth and crisp mortise is a beautiful thing. :-) ...

Fun with a Stanley #45 - #2: Plowing a Groove

04-17-2013 05:10 AM by Mosquito | 35 comments »

Glad to have my workbench in a usable state, so I thought I’d make the first video for this blog series. In this blog entry, I will be using my Stanley #45 plane to cut a groove along the face of a board. For the purpose of this example I am using a scrap piece of pine. I am using a 1/2” cutter, and have the depth stop set up for 3/8”, as well as the fence 3/8” away from the edge of the cutter.   I am using the second skate in addition to the main...
