Infill plane construction #2: Opening my mouth

1403 days ago by Tony Strupulis | 4 comments »

I finished making the vertical cuts for the dovetails in the sole plate. I clamped a piece of scrap wood cut at 75 degrees as a guide for my hacksaw blade. The guide block began to wear and lose accuracy after a couple cuts. At that point, I made enough guide blocks to use a fresh one for every cut. Before removing the waste form the dovetails in the sole plate, I decided to open the mouth. It was easier to clamp the sole plate in the drill press vise with the sides still intact. I used...

Finally back in the shop!

1415 days ago by MoreWoodPlease | 2 comments »

Wow, what a hot summer on Long Island. Every time I attempted to make sawdust, I started to sweat on the tools, and then the wood. My shop has heat, but no AC so the summer months are spent reading the array of magizines that come in the mail, and trips to the local library to find a jem in the woodworking section. Finally I’m back in the shop. Currently I’m finishing the last of three cherry display cases for an optomistrist friend so he can display eyeglass frames in h...

Car-boot sale treasures #2: Yorkshire tool gloat

1430 days ago by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

It’s not as if I don’t have planes, but confronted by these two (A Stanley #4 and a Record #5) yesterday at a local car boot sale (flea market?), what could I do but buy them? Especially when the vendor dropped the price before I’d even had chance to haggle. Five pounds for the two seemed more than reasonable. Seven dollars 75 cents is a rough conversion. The #5, especially, is somewhat knocked about, but think of the hours of pleasure I’ll get in resurrecting t...

Infill plane construction #1: And so it begins

1435 days ago by Tony Strupulis | 12 comments »

I was browsing the Popular Woodworking web site about a week ago when I innocently poked on a link to infill plane maker Sauer and Steiner. The site described how the dovetailed metal bodied planes are made using hand tools that most people already have. That was all I needed for motivation. I already own a hacksaw and a bunch of files. Never mind that I’ve never done any metal work or the fact that I already own two Stanley #4 planes, I’M GOING TO BUILD AN INFILL PLANE! An...
