Handplane Restoration #33: Tony - Stanley Bedrock 602

02-13-2017 12:17 AM by WayneC | 6 comments »

I got an awesome buy it now deal on this plane. I did a light clean-up this afternoon to get him in the tool box. The plane got its name from a crudely scrawled owner’s name “Tony” on the side and tote. I’m down to two bedrocks to complete the full set.

Handplanes #1: My book for new handplane users

06-14-2016 02:57 PM by CobblerMtn | 2 comments »

In April, I published a book based on the classes I teach at Woodcraft on using and restoring handplanes. The book is entitled Choosing and Using Handplanes: All You Need to Know to Get Started Planing by Hand. It’s a good resource for beginning handplane users but it also has tables and reference information more experienced users will find helpful. The book, which runs to 90 pages and has nearly 100 color illustrations, covers the following topics: - The types of handplanes, th...

No. 4 Smoother Restoration, with Emphasis on Repairing a Chipped Knob

02-02-2015 02:23 PM by Bugnurd | 7 comments »

Aloha! I’d like to share with the world my restoration of a Stanley No. 4 smoothing plane. I picked up this plane last spring off C-list. Here's a post from when I got it if you are interested in seeing more “before” photos. It seems to be a type 13 example, which dates the plane between 1925-1928. Rust was pretty much only surficial, and the original jappaning was about 95% intact. Here’s what she looked like as found: Cleaning up the plane was pretty str...

Childs Play #3: Toy Handplane Build #3.... Frogs and Totes Oh My!

12-02-2014 03:21 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

I have taken some long over due time off of work this week and am taking advantage of it as much as I can. Today I got busy on the frog, receiving plate and lever cap. Last week I had already finished adding the knob/tote screw posts and cut out and drilled the tote for this guy. Dug out a chunk of aluminum and started cutting… I REALLY need to consider a metal band saw lol… And with that done I had the “machined” base for the frog. Next w...

Easily Flatten Your Sole

11-30-2014 10:15 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

When dealing with handplanes there are two main things you have to have. The first is a really sharp iron. This helps make some great shavings and you can tell a difference between a dull iron and a sharp one. The second important thing to have with handplanes is a flat bottom. If the bottom isn’t flat you won’t end up with nice and flat lumber, or you will be fighting the pushing action while planing. In this video i show how easy it is to get a flat sole. The whole process takes...
