Planes #2: Rare Stanley #60 Pre Adjustable Mouth

01-28-2010 08:22 PM by TD Bridges | 6 comments »

A few weeks I was looking around my local junk store where I got my #4 and found two small block planes sitting on the shelf. One was a #60 1/2 with no blade and another with a broken cap and adjusting screw nut and no readily apparent model #. I got them home, disassembled them and dropped all the pieces straight into the good old Evap-O-Rust. I left them to soak overnight and all the next day while I was at work. They both cleaned up nicely, so I WD40ed them and set them on the shelf abo...

Bandsaw Blade broke / Found another problem

01-16-2010 11:39 PM by Karson | 19 comments »

The other day I was cutting up some pen blanks on the bandsaw and the blade broke. It was a 3/4” Timberwolf blade that I had welded up and it had been running noisy and had a wave movement toward the front as it went around. I had figured that it has a crack in the blade at the weld and was going to fail, but I had kept using it. So it broke. I took the covers off and removed the blade. It broke about 1/4” away from the weld. So I coiled it up figuring I’ll clean it up an...

Extremely Average #7: To and Fro

01-09-2010 05:44 AM by Ecocandle | 9 comments »

It is all back and forth, to and fro, over and over again, until my fingers are sore and angry. Actually my fingers are not only angry, they are bitter and told me in no uncertain terms, “Listen bub, we know you are excited about your new little sharpening station, but either we get a break, or we will wrap ourselves around your neck.” I am not brave, so I relented and decided to take a break from sharpening. I checked and my fingers agreed that they would be more than willing to eithe...

Handplane Restoration #27: Struck out at the flea market

12-06-2009 01:30 AM by WayneC | 18 comments »

My son and I went to the local flea market looking for a rusty block plane to try out the evapo rust. I was hoping to find a 102 or 103 for a buck or two. I wanted to try it before starting on the Stanley 112. It is too nice of a plane for it to be used for the trial. I was not able to find any good candiates for testing the evapo-rust. Anyway, I ended up walking out having only spent $2 on an old back saw. Cest ‘la vie. We stopped at a local antique store on the way ...

Handplane Restoration #25: Stanley 112 Update

11-26-2009 06:45 AM by WayneC | 5 comments »

Just a quick update. I ordered and recieved a Hock replacement blade for the plane from Craftsman Studio. While I was at it, I had a moment of weakness and also ordered a Hock burnishing rod. I really like Craftsman Studio, good prices and quick shipping. The burnishing rod comes without a handle so I enlisted one of my friends to turn a quick brass handle. The Hock blade is very high quality and I like the finish. Photos are below. I also have a some evapo-rust on order. Once t...

TimberWolf bandsaw blade - NOT a review ;-)

11-24-2009 03:08 AM by NBeener | 20 comments »

I just can’t review stuff. I have NO point of reference. Pretty much everything I have is my first [insert tool type here]. It wouldn’t be fair. BUT … after: - MUCH messing with my Grizzly G0555X 14” bandsaw, - figuring out that the entire blade tensioning mechanism was faulty (new parts on the way) - finding out all I could about tuning a bandsaw, and thinking I had it set up pretty darned well I finally stopped by the woodworking store and picked up...

Handplane Restoration #24: Stanley 112

11-21-2009 12:44 AM by WayneC | 9 comments »

This was a craigslist item that showed up yesterday evening. I quickly arranged to head over to the sellers house and pick it up. The Stanley 112 is a scraping plane used for finishing surfaces similar to a card scraper. According to Patrick Leach, “this is one of the finest tools ever to have been unleashed on the public from New Britain, Connecticut.” It has been on my shopping list for a while. This one is in pretty good shape. It has some light rust and is missing i...
