Laid out some toys but this was just the tip of the iceberg. Set up a “high-tech workbench” after using a “saw tub” to cut what I needed off a plank. Then the rest gets clamped in place Then clamp the new saw bench top in place for a little joinery work used this old saw to make a few cuts checked the angled parts with a gauge, and a small handplane to smooth it down. the chisels did most of the removal work. angle is about 12 degrees. Time to ma...
Found a Eucalyptus log and planed down a branch Pen blank? Nice spalting, I was stoked to find that.
The partner and step line up nicely. I had a bit of a surprise when I discovered the mast was a bit thicker further up and would not fit through the partner. A bit of work with the block plane and all was good. There is a bit of reinforcing yet for the mast but it looks pretty good.

Main complaints are the tote broken in two places, the chip breaker on the blade backwards, and the frog way out of adjustment. Also, the seller sanded the plane a bit, which I think probably turned some folks off. I disassembled, replace...
Just documenting this plane. It will fill this slot in my bench plane family until I get crazy lucky and find a 605 1/4 in the wild or have extra money to plunk down on the LN version of the plane. I am upgrading from a post WW2 version of the plane. This one is an early example and it is corrugated. If you take Patrick Leech at his word this is the scarcest (5 1/4 corrugated plane) of the Stanley bench planes. Unfortunately this one has been drilled to hang on the wall. More info c...
