Car-boot sale treasures #2: Yorkshire tool gloat

1418 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

1423 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...

I...

tuning up an old plane #1: The plane..

1430 days ago by Camper | 11 comments »

I am planning on documenting how I will tune up an old plane. I know nothing about planes and sharpening so there may be a lot of mistakes on the way. I have learnt a lot by looking around the web and reading blogs on LJs. So here is the plane. It has no brand name on it, but in 2 locations it says “Made in USA”. I picked it up for $5 from a garage sale. Anyone know more about this guy? I found the following links useful on LJs: Link 1 Link 2 I also picked ...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

1436 days ago by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

MDB #4: The Age of the Machines - Final milling and profiling

1439 days ago by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here Once everything was glued up into a single slab, it was time to plane it flat and parallel. one of the strips I jointed happen (don’t ask me how…lol) to be jointed off square, throwing the last 4-5 strips in the glueup off flat (mostly flat). I was tired at this point, and just figured I’m not going to rejoint it, but will pay the price and plane it all down at the cost of having a...

Flea Market Items...

1440 days ago by Builder_Bob | 2 comments »

Went flea market and antique shopping today. and surprising my wife bought nothing and I came home withfour items. How did I do? The modern plane is marked “Fulton 22” and looks to be in decent shape. $15. The old wooden plane looks like it had a rough life. It has a surprisingly sharp blade! $15. I couldn’t turn down the Skill saw clock. It actually ran after I untangled the hands. 1/2 price, 6$. Marking gauge.. either a poor attempt or a ...

Blind Hog Found An Acorn

1443 days ago by Maveric777 | 11 comments »

I wasen’t sure where to put this little stroke of luck so I decided to make a short little blog about it. Long story short I wanted to try my hand at planes. At first I felt like I totally wasted my money purchasing 2 cheap ones and was about ready to put them in file 13. Well after a little studying, and reading up on a bunch of material I discovered not only the usefulness of planes, but how much I have grown fond of them (I know its weird but for some reason they are becoming my favo...
