Hand planes #4: Stanley SW no 5 Antique Mall resto

03-22-2017 03:08 PM by Mike54Ohio | 1 comment »

Finally got around to attacking the restoration on the SW no 5 I picked up at the antique mall last month. The biggest issue was that the tote was broken at the horn and I had never attempted a repair on that type of damage before. I only had to give $11 for the plane when I scored it – the blade and cap iron etc were pretty rusty. Before pics: I threw all the small stuff into evaporust for clean-up and decided to try something different on the plane sole for rust rem...

Hidden figers joints? #4: Getting about done

03-21-2017 11:39 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Spent most of the day working on this box. When I removed the clamps, I found one corner that hadn’t glued up… So, got out the glue, and a couple big clamps. Trickle the glue into the open joint, and crank the thing tight.. I also took a bit of time to clean the other end of the box up.. Block plane to level things a bit. Since this is the bottom of the box, it would be nice if it would sit flat.. Set up the Stanley 45… With a bead cutter….I think it...

Hidden figers joints? #3: Heading for a glue up

03-21-2017 02:38 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, wasn’t the plan to work on a Monday in the shop…just kind of happened… Thought I could just size two plywood panels to make the lid and the bottom panels….Marked one out, thinking I could use that to mark a second one, once the first was done….bandsaw cuts were a bit..wavy. Got out a plane to un-wavy them.. Got a Junior Jack plane to joint the edges straight. Checked the ends with a square….recut, and then joint THAT edge. Then go through ...

Workbench build #1: Part 1: The need for a new, cheap bench

03-20-2017 10:10 PM by RobNPHX | 0 comments »

It’s been about 6 months since I purchased a bench from a discount tool store, and I am in desperate need of something else. The bench is cheaply made, and even for having glued the joints prior to assembly, there is too much sway and movement for hand tool work. The included wooden vise is falling apart, and the wood is cracking. Yesterday, I started to build out a new bench, constructed of Douglas Fir 2×4’s. At less than $3 a board, I couldn’t beat the price. I w...

Hidden figers joints? #2: Last two corners..

03-20-2017 12:35 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Might as well make a box out of this… Worked on finding better ways of doing this…bandsaw was used for a bit on some areas, to hog off some of the waste. I also used the 358 mitre box for some of the crosscuts. Laid out the fingers.. This was after I had cut the mitred ends. More of the handsaw work at a 45 degree cut. Marked out where the ends of the fingers would be, and cut the excess off. SHARP chisels to remove the waste to form “pockets” The b...
