Dungeon Shop Rehab Center: Stanley Plane

101 days ago by bandit571 | 5 comments »

A very Rusty & Crusty plane showed up today. Under all that gunk is a Stanley T19, #5-1/2 jack plane. Yeah, right. A few more looks before the trip downstairs Iron and lever cap need a bit of clean up The handles are solid, no cracks. Paint might need a touch up, maybe. Hauled all the parts down to the shop. Took the plane apart. I managed to get every bolt out, but one. That little one holding the clip on the back of the frog. Frozen tight. Oh, well, it ca...

Stanley no. 1

110 days ago by skidooraceing | 15 comments »

The plane is missing the chip breaker and lever cap. When I got it home I took some rust off the blade it had the Stanley logo and a patent date of 1892. I looked up online about it and believe its a Stanley no. 1. Im wondering if anyone knows much about Stanley no. 1’s and what the price of a none complete no. 1 would be?

Having now made my first hand plane, I was eager to try something a little more challenging. Something about the shape and delicacy of the components that made up a shoulder plane (and in particular the small shoulder planes that Mafe had been playing with in one of his Blog builds, also based on Div’s beautiful shoulder plane that he gifted to Mafe)....I think I was just hypnotised by the beauty of both of these planes and needed to make one. Firstly I decided on the style and the d...

bench vice and starting out

122 days ago by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Hi, one of the investments a beginner woodworker thinks they really need is a nice cast iron bench vice. Now, I’ve been doing this professionally since 1982. In @ 1994 I got a used /discarded slab of laminated rock maple with a vice on one corner. some school threw out several student benches with the vices on them. some local persons “salvaged” them from the dumpster. my truck may have been used and I got one…. I never use it.I had gotten used to by then a homemade v...
