Number 2, in my best Dr. Evil Voice

11-03-2011 10:20 PM by ShaneA | 7 comments »

I have been bitten by the hand plane bug recently. I used to think I was above such a disease, but alas, I am not. Over the last month it has taken hold. Hopefully it can be contained to a bench plane only type of sickness. My journey is only beginning, at this point the really only successful thing I do well in the hand plane world is pay for them. I see there is a long way to go in my technique and understanding of the tools. I find them interes...

Videos #8: FastCap Hand Planes

07-19-2012 02:02 PM 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...

Quick tip to find an unknown angle

09-02-2012 07:04 PM 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.

Making a Jack Plane Tote

09-03-2012 07:55 PM 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.

Making a Router Plane

03-18-2013 08:37 PM 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 ...

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

06-24-2011 04:32 AM 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 First Workbench #20: Day 20: Leveling the top is a full body workout.

09-04-2012 11:53 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

For the dramatic (or not so dramatic) before and after pictures, please click here. A busy weekend with the kiddos and my wife happily trumped all other activities (except cutting the grass) for the weekend. But today is Labor Day so…what better way to celebrate than by doing some labor!I had just enough time to squeeze in some work on the still unfinished bench today. It has been sitting, base assembled and dry, with the top merely resting in place now for 3 days. Time to get bac...
