Tool study #3: "Buck Rogers" planes from Millers Falls - Part 1

09-27-2013 12:27 PM by toolmike | 2 comments »

Streamline moderne is a type of Art Deco architecture that emerged in the mid 1930s and lasted more than two decades. It emphasized curving forms, and moved beyond architecture into industrial design, and even tool design. Millers Falls developed a line of tools in the post-WWII years which were heavy influenced by streamline modern – and symbolic of the 1950s “atomic era”. It is defined by tools such as the No.100A automatic push drill, the No.104 geared hand drill, and the...

Roubo Journey Update #1

01-23-2014 05:15 PM by Pat3 | 5 comments »

Just a quick update on planing the first beam for the top, 3 of the sides are done. The last side has a deep gouge where the forklift hit it. The damage looks to be about 3/4” deep, so I broke out the scrub plane to help remove more material. The wood is already pretty square, it doesn’t take much wood to get it ready for use. This is going to take some time :0)

Tools Anonymous #2: The planer, boss - the planer!

10-06-2012 02:08 AM by Sandra | 4 comments »

And finally I used the planer… The guys renovating our basement thought birch would stain nicely to match the new laminate flooring. The plan was to make a ledge/rail at the bottom of the half wall and a long ledge (110”) where the wall juts out. I thought it would be a good project for me so I took it on. I found birch and maple on kijiji and came home with a van load of rough lumber. Which lead to me building lumber racks. Funny how these things snowball. Then of cou...

hard facts

10-22-2013 01:29 PM by rhett | 7 comments »

At WIA this past weekend I had more than a few people ask me why I used ash instead of the traditional beech. It was implied I was using a lesser wood for plane building. While it may not get as polished as the old dogmatic standby, ash is proven harder than beech per the janka scale. It is also almost 2x more stable, according to this chart, on tangential dimensional change coefficients. The lower the number, the less the wood moves with +/- moisture.

Stanley No. 5 Jack Plane

12-04-2007 03:53 AM by CedarFreakCarl | 8 comments »

I had some time to kill last Saturday and was close to a flea market so I stopped and checked it out to see what was there in the way of tools. Generally there wasn’t much there, but after trudging through much of it I found a vendor with a few planes. Most of them looked like junk, but this one stood out. The guy wanted $42.50, but after watching me pick it up and put it back down about 10 times told me he’d sell it for $35.00.So I bought it. Now what I know about planes could f...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #6: Last Class of Level 1 :-(

01-28-2011 07:30 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Well the Level 1 is done and no I didn’t get my nail tray finished; I need about another hour to get it all together including fixing my myriad ‘learning opportunities’:-) I had a chance to use a rabbetting plane! and a brace and bit. I am very impressed with how easily these tools worked, I had anticipated that they would be much less effective for a lot more effort. I will be keeping my eyes open for good garage sales and auctions for more hand tools now. Overall (...

Ukulele No. 1 #2: some progress at home

03-23-2013 01:03 AM by Justin M Schmidt | 0 comments »

When I started this class I knew right away I would have to do a lot of work at home to keep up. Not having a bunch of essential tools slowed me down, but I’m finally getting some work done between classes. I swear there’s a ukulele somewhere in that pile of stuff! Last night I planed the sides down from about 4mm to 2mm. Pretty sloppy, but I’m learning. That was fun… there really is pure joy in a nice plane. (My Wood River V3 #5 is treating me well.) ...
