Disassembly of the plane was surprisingly straightforward; everything came apart readily with a single flat bit screwdriver. Here are the photos of it all in pieces: I noticed a few things as I opened it up. lever cap – chip out of left corner, nickel coating flaking frog – chip out of left corner Iron and chip breaker – mild to moderate surface rust with some minor pitting depth adjustment knob – slight nick in the knurled surface ...
I made this machine based on plans from printingplans.com, anyway if you note some differences with the plans, it is because after a time working on it, I have made some changes in the dimensions of the parts and some reinforcements to improve the printings on other materials such as wood, for example. This is a really versatile machine to make a lot of screen printing projects with great results, it can works with different materials as papers, fabrics, leather, wood and other porous mate...
Lately my chisels have been strewn around my bench. They had no place to go and kept falling onto the floor, dulling the edges. I got tired of this and so decided to make a chisel rack from whatever wood I had lying around. https://youtu.be/_vWWgS4DFSg
Several weeks ago I was discussing my wood working habit with my wife’s uncle, and expressed my desire to obtain an antique Stanley plane. He was about to head down to Texas for a vacation to some giant garage sale, and he’d keep an eye out for me. I pulled up a picture on my phone and showed him what i was looking for, and quickly forgot all about it. This past weekend we were helping them move and he said “hey i have a plane for you” and pulled out THIS ...
Finally…..I think….Tale of the good, the bad, and the UGLY…Got all the mortises done, decided to start glueing things up…( that was the “Bad” part) tried to clamp up round posts with plain clamps… Clamps would hold, until you looked away, then they’d flop onto the floor. Somehow got side #1 and the back to stay together long enough to pin a few joints… Went ahead and used side #2 to clamp things up better…..That is where ...
At least. Spend some time getting five slats resawn out of a 4×4.. Found of of these had a shortage of knots. Cut it down to 26” long. Then, marked a line just over 2” wide, and resawed the excess off. Set that aside with the other two.. As I can make seat slats, or armrests out of them. Set the main event so I could slice off 1/2” thick slabs, 2”wide.. Since I already had the side on the bench, I could lay out the slats as they came off the ban...
been a few days? A couple of glue ups did indded happen…. Second one was also done. Set them aside for now… And started to work on the seat parts… Sawn a curve where the slats for the seat will attach. Each one of these is just a hair longer than the other. Front one being the widest, and the back one the narrowest. There is a middle one. set up with 1” long tenons on the ends. This will do for now. Had resaw work to do, twice.. Used one of the...
