Building handplanes #1: Adjustable compass plough plane

09-28-2011 11:29 AM by toolchap | 8 comments »

A while back I mentioned a commission for a circular plough plane similar to the Falconer plane. The client wanted it to look as close as possible to the original. Now research only brought 5 photographs to light and armed with these, I had to start delving into the mind of the designer and how to overcome the myriad of problems this plane presented. To be frank, I would rather rebuild a Stanley 55 in bronze than this little beauty with its problem plethora. After many weeks I am finall...

Random thoughts of wood #1: Hand planes aquired!

I am very excited to get home and start cleaning and restoreing them to a useable condition. It will be a great thing to restore a tool from before my grandparents were born and use it to make peices of my own today! I am currently looking into other hand tools to buy as I am going to start up with Shannon Rodgers hand tool schoo...
