Re-thinking a Parts Plane

07-17-2012 01:44 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

A while back, I bought a “Parts Plane” for another plane rehab project. I was interested in the bolts, and the frog. When the plane arrived, along with some other parts, I decided to try things out. Bad mistake, actually…. The Parts Plane: Not much to look at,is there? a gray base, and red frog, and some handles that need some work. I slipped some needed parts onto this Parts plane, and decided a “Test Drive” would be fun… The parts inst...

I was designing a project a few days ago, and a couple of the joints would use angled dado’s. I’m wondering if anyone has done this and opinions on the safety of doing so.

Union No.6A X #1: Just picked up this baby. Can you give me some info on it?

07-15-2012 11:06 PM by Deycart | 3 comments »

EDIT: It is actually a 5A X.. That tells you how much crud is on it. I just picked up this at a community garage sale for 35 bucks. I can not find any real info on it. The only other one I can find are about the No. 7 X. How rare is this plane and How old is it? I assume its pretty old considering the hole at the top of the blade. Well I plan to do a light cleaning just to get the crud off. If it turns out to rare I will leave it at that and just sharpen it. I can’t wait to see how ...

My Hand Planes- Meet the Boys #1: Stanley No.4 1/2 Bench plane with shop-made Tote.

07-10-2012 08:35 PM by Johnnyblot | 13 comments »

This is a Stanley no.4 1/2 that I built up from parts. The Tote is a sandwich of 3 pieces of bubinga, in a ‘Z’ configuration glued to 2 acrylic tote profiles with maple cheeks.my original idea was to use brass sheet but I didn’t have any to hand so I used clear acrylic sheet [from a car registration plate]. Also I fitted a Quangsheng Blade & Chipbreaker assembley. The body was first stripped and repainted and the surfaces reground.The mouth needed to ope...

Hand Planes #6: Using the Cove Plane

06-28-2012 05:12 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 6 comments »

I have a lot of projects that my wife (HI Nicole!) wants me to do involving wood. Well it never seems like they get done and I feel bad because I want her to be happy. She asked me to make her a little shelf to go over the back of the couch to place picture frames on or what ever else ends up going there. I figured this would be a great chance to practice some of my hand tool skills and see how it goes. I measured out the back of the couch to see what the length should be which was 78″. It is...

Just Plane Old #1: As Is - Looking for suggestions

06-25-2012 03:36 AM by socrbent | 4 comments »

I retrieved to old wooden planes that belonged to my dad from the shop on the family farm now run by my youngest brother. They probably haven’t been used in 50 years. As a long term project (this coming winter) I want to clean them up and if feasible make them functional. They are at least pre WWII. Would these be something made in a high school shop class in the early 40’s?The large one is 22” long and the smaller is 16”. Since I don’t know much about plane I...
