LJ friends and gifts. #12: Spiers of Ayr infill smoother - restore

09-07-2013 09:43 PM by mafe | 13 comments »

Spiers of Ayr infill smoother – restoreA gift from my friend Jamie Speirs. So back again!I know I have not been so much around for a while, first I was sick for some months and then a long summer of travelling, in Denmark Jutland Thy, then Croatia, back to Denmark Sjælland Odden, kayaking and then finally Ireland and then Scotland to visit my friend Jamie. Then home to pack down the shop, that will be closed for house renovation until the new year (shit happens), so I will be without...

Building an infill smoother #2: Sides and infill build

08-22-2013 02:53 AM by Wally331 | 9 comments »

Sorry it’s been so long between entries, two-a-day football practices sort of got in the way ;) I guess I’ll continue where I left off… While I was waiting for my steel to arrive from McMaster- Carr I moved my attention to the infill. I had to slightly re-size and refine my original drawing to the final bed angle(50 degrees) and plan out exactly where I wanted the bolts and how the infill would fit in. I used my new drawing to make some paper templates which I just gl...

Building an infill smoother #1: Inspiration and cutting out the sides

06-07-2013 12:24 AM by Wally331 | 5 comments »

This is my first blog post, so don’t be to alarmed if it is the biggest piece of garbage you have ever read. I’ll try my best though ;) For the past few months, I have been in a tool craze. Whether it is planes, saws, braces, chisels, or even miter boxes, I just can’t get enough. So when Don W started his blog about making an infill, I saw how easy it could be, and figured why not try it myself. I get a beautiful and functional tool to add to my collection, and some more ...

Making the dw infills #4: Let do some tapping and peening.

04-07-2013 12:56 AM by Don W | 20 comments »

So another way to attach the sides is tapping and peening. I thought I’d give it a try on a small smoother. I decided on aluminum sides and hot rolled steel for the sole. The aluminum is 1/8” x 2” and hot the rolled steel is about 3/8” x 1 7/8”. I wanted to use a 1 5/8” block plane iron. Infill is cherry. Lever cap is brass. This time I cut the sole in 2 pieces. I found this technique a lot easier. The I drilled the sides. And tapered them with a r...

Making the dw infills #3: Part 3 the infill saga

04-03-2013 09:31 PM by Don W | 20 comments »

So making the infill wasn’t so bad. Its so much easier when make a base. When you make the base, its square and true, unlike the inside of the cast vintage planes, so making and addind the base is much easier. I choose walnut for this, and after some help from my friend over on the HPOYD thread, I decided to ebonize it. Most of this is just normal woodworking, at least for the first part. And marking and laying it out, I decided to make this one in 1 piece. I’m...

Making the dw infills #2: Let's dovetail

04-03-2013 12:33 AM by Don W | 21 comments »

As I stated in the first part, there are several ways to connect the sides of an infill to te sole. In this plane I’ll try my hand at dovetailing. There are numerous videos, instruction and blogs about cutting the dovetails. I suggest you watch them all. I am pretty sure I did. For the woodworking folks around here, the layout isn’t really any different than wood. Add some layout fluid, and use the same tools you use for a drawer. A straight edge, layout guide and dovetail m...

Making the dw infills #1: Part 1 Envisioning and a bit of a Rant.

03-29-2013 09:32 PM by Don W | 13 comments »

Making an infill has been on my bucket list for quite some time now. Making tools to me is more of a hobby than the actual woodworking. If you are looking to build an infill, you’re welcome to follow me along. I’ll try to keep the blog as up to date as time allows and would love feedback from others taking the same path. The metal work of the infill intimidated me a bit and I’m not really sure why. I can weld, I’ve done my share of body work, gunsmithing and tin work, ...

Just some planes restored #4: Infill Jack (well almost)

02-25-2012 10:15 PM by Don W | 11 comments »

I’ve been working on this for 6 or 8 months. I’d do a little, loose interest, and set it back on the shelf. It sat so long I wound up using the frog, blade, cap iron and cap for another plane long since forgotten. The current frog has a broken top, so the lateral adjustment lever is gone. I will need to find 2. One for the nice #4 it came from and a replacement for this one. The infill is made from ash. The front knob was a broken knob off a transitional. I had originally plann...
