I will be making some traditional bench dogs, but here is the simplest bench dog ever. Check out the VIDEO HERE Please Subscribe to my channel for more woodworking and general DIY videos.

Traditional Chinese Jack plane, part two

05-27-2014 12:50 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, here we go The plane had a few problems, some from the saw guy not following the lines. So, the mouth was extra big Yep, way too big, and ugly. two, the wedge was too short, allowing the iron to chatter along. First problem to fix was the mouth opening. Happen to have a cut-off from the plane build. Grain should match. Block was a bit big, and I have no resaw stuff to use. Got out the big stuff Sat the block right on the bench’s leg, and gave the big ch...

Traditional Chinese Jack plane

05-25-2014 10:52 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Start with a chunk of oak. This is Red Oak, I think. and layout a few lines. A 45 degree one for the iron to bad on, and another for the wedge to press against. Layout some other lines. Where the mouth is, and where the “eyes” go. The Eyes are the two points that hold the wedge in place. Ahead of them is the escape,emt area where shavings are supposed to exit. Like this. Then the chopping begins with the idea of making a hole all the way through. Then ...

Block Plane Restore

05-25-2014 04:22 PM by thiswoodshop | 0 comments »

I bought a few used planes on eBay a few month ago and the block plane restore was the first one to tackle. All these plane bodys and irons was very rusted and pitted when I received them. I posted an article Hand Plane Restoration on this. Stuff I used for the restoration: Wire Brush Sand Paper Wire brush wheel for grinder WD-40 Black Spry Paint – Rust-oleum Sharpening Stone I blew all the loose peaches and rust dust of with some compressed air. Then I proceeded...

Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #1: Getting started in a big way

05-20-2014 02:54 AM by CaptainKlutz | 4 comments »

Not a fan of blogs as I don’t need any more computer time, but figured I’d make my first one (maybe my last).So where to start? SWMBO has been asking for a new kitchen table to replace an existing $100 press board & Formica piece of junk.I haven’t made much from Cherry in many years, and have been accumulating a few 4/4 boards from CL thinking, if I found some decent 8/4, then I would start the kitchen table. Several months ago, I learned that one of the local cabi...

In that crate were a “IDEAL” brand jack plane , a stanley 9 1/2 and a stanley 102. ...

A chinese edge plane

05-13-2014 07:12 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

While watching a video series about China Hand Tool Wood working, saw a plane the fellow was making. “Should only take ten minutes or so to make, very simple..” Yeah, RIGHT. Took me about six HOURS! Anyway, I got out a piece of white oak stock, and tried out some cuts Ok, THAT didn’t go so well. That dummy can saw worth a … Front of the opening was way too big. Plan B. Had a second piece of white oak. Saw guy was a little bit better. Used ...

Dungeon Shop Rehab Center: Stanley Plane

05-12-2014 08:19 PM 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

05-04-2014 04:18 AM by skidooraceing | 15 comments »

I had found a hand plane at a garage sale and bought it for $5 without really knowing what kind of plane it was. It is a small plane around 6 inches long. 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?
