Videos #8: FastCap Hand Planes

641 days ago by tyskkvinna | 2 comments »

A radius plane and a standard plane.. Both are just intended for small cleanup, finishing, that sort of thing. I actually use them on a regular basis—I love the radius plane. When I do miniature work they are also fantastic. As I mention in the video, they are a great learning tool if you want to dip your feet into some hand tools but don’t want to make the commitment to something large (in cost or size). You don’t have to try and build an entire project with it, it becom...

Restoring History-Auburn Tool Co Try Plane #3: Lessons Learned

1032 days ago by RGtools | 3 comments »

So I made a mistake. Not a big one but definitely avoidable. When I set my grinder up, I used a nice thick blade to figure out where may angle should be. Unfortunately I forgot to factor in the tapered blade on the old plane makes a RADICAL 10 degree difference to my grinding angle so I realized that I had a 20 bevel angle about early enough correct it. I tapped the stand forward so I ended up with a second bevel of 30 degrees. Believe it or not the secondary bevel is big enough to reference ...

My Hand Tool Education #1: My First Hand Plane - Stanley #5

1841 days ago by Matt | 2 comments »

Rather than code a bunch of pictures into this post, here is a link to my Flickr Set for this plane. So, recently I’ve taken an interest in hand tools. I don’t own any vintage or nice ones (unless you count this one) but that may change really soon. I have always been a history buff so that part of it appeals to me as well. I think being able to go out to my shop and having some nice quiet time working with wood would be very satisfying. Rather than go through my educa...

Making a Router Plane

398 days ago by nobuckle | 7 comments »

Ever since I saw Mafe's router plane I’ve had the desire to make one. As I do most often I look here on LJs for inspiration. Well, I found it. As I searched I came across this gem of a router plane made by Tinnocker. Tinnocker got his inspiration from Mafe’s design as well. I used a picture of Tinnockers design to come up with my version of a router plane. The body of the plane is hard maple. The handles are from some old chair spindles I had laying around, The plane iron is a ...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #6: Some More Carcase Joinery

736 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 18 comments »

So there’s a bit more that has to be done before finishing the overall carcase of this wall hung tool cabinet to be, and it’s all about dados and stopped dados. Quite simply, the cabinet will be divided into two distinct parts: a lower section that has a tambor door and storage for two jack planes (cambered #5 and #62), then an upper section that has a pair of doors with ‘depth’ storage inside. So the first thing to do is create the joints for the divider as well as...

Quick tip to find an unknown angle

595 days ago by nobuckle | 1 comment »

I’m restoring an old jack plane and I need to make a new tote for it. The recess for the tote has angle at one end, this helps to lock the tote in place. The problem is that I don’t know what that angle is. Well, I came up with a method of finding that angle. Perhaps this tip will work for you as well. Thanks for watching.

My new Roubo #19: Making the sliding board jack with hand tools only

1143 days ago by JasonD | 10 comments »

I got some time in the shop tonight and was able to get the sliding board jack made and installed. To make the V-groove at the bottom, I first made two cuts down the center with a rip panel saw. Then I cut a 45-deg kerf from the front / back that met those first two cuts in the middle. Finally, I chopped out the middle section and pared it flat with a 1/4” chisel and cleaned up the slopes with a paring chisel. Here’s a picture after the first 45-deg cut: After the sec...

Making a Jack Plane Tote

594 days ago by nobuckle | 4 comments »

Okay, this is yet another update on the James Kellogg Jack Plane restoration. This time I’m making the tote. One of my concerns is that the tote may break if any side pressure is applied. I’m kicking around the idea of adding a drilling a hole through the handle and reinforcing it with a dowel. What do you think? Ayway, here is what I have so far; The pattern The rough shape Fitted to the plane Just a closer look Thanks for looking.
