Hand Plane Restoration #2: Stanley 9 1/2 Block Plane

05-27-2007 01:50 AM by David | 12 comments »

Stanley Block Plane Restoration PDF ELECTROLYTIC RUST REMOVAL INSTRUCTION SHEET A couple of days ago I spent some time rehabbing an old block plane that used to sit on the bottom of my steel carpenters box or in my nail bags depending on what I was working on at the time. I was motivated and inspired by fellow LumerJocks Wayne and Matt to pull this plane out and put it to use in the shop. I do not have photos before starting my rehab – maybe a Freudian slip as I would be embarasse...

Plane from wood scraps and an old hacksaw blade

This is a satisfying little project that many of you can make in your sheds/shops/garages. You may find when you are nearly finished that you sneak in a little test…..make sure you do finish the project from then on. Happy woodworking.

Homemade Tools #1: Block plane and Joiner Plane

07-30-2007 07:14 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

Just playing around in the shop and came accross these planes. I made them a couple years ago, and really enjoyed it. Nothing too fancy, and the basic plans came from a book on making hand planes. They are a pleasure to use as the shavings come peeling through the throat opening. That nice whoosh sound that only planes make, and shavings thin enough to read through! And a polished surface that’s left behind. So much satisfaction in using them, knowing you made them. ...

Cleaning up a Stanley 60 1/2 Block Plane

12-28-2012 02:33 AM by Matt Nudi | 4 comments »

Well, got my first hand plane in the mail, the stanley 60 1/2 plane. It wasn’t in too bad of a shape, but definitely needed some work…. So, first step was to take it apart. Had to get out a couple punches and made one mistake which I’ll explain later… The smallest stainless steel parts weren’t in too bad of shape, pretty good actually, so all that they need was a soak and some hand scrubbing. They were put in a tub of simple green and I let them sit...

Test Drive Five Popular Hand Planes Types

11-11-2008 04:03 AM by Keith Cruickshank | 4 comments »

I know that most of us covet that next slick power tool. I’m like that too. But I’ve also come to appreciate hand planes for their ability to make quick work of tasks that can’t be done easily by machine. In this video we take a look at five types of hand planes that are commonly found in wood shops. By the way, if you’re a regular WoodTreks viewer, you know that usually I’m behind the camera, featuring some of America’s top artisans. But to mix things...

New Features: Blocklists

05-16-2010 06:35 PM by Martin Sojka | 103 comments »

Not one of the positive features but unfortunately it seems like there was no chance to avoid adding self-managed blocklists here at LumberJocks. Requested by many members recently I believe this new feature will be vital for further growth and good atmosphere here. When you choose to block someone, it means they: Can’t comment on your profile Can’t comment on your posts (projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews, workshop) Are removed as your buddy, and you are re...
