A bailey #8c: Rehab and clean up

05-25-2013 08:25 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I have an old Bailey #8c, type nine. It was getting rusty, and dirty from neglect. Just don’t have projects to fit it’s size. Got to checking the iron. Out of square by a 1/16th! Hmmm, have to fix that. Then, needed to resharpen the iron. So, out came the tools A two grit oil stone, some 1K grit wet& dry sandpaper, and a piece of leather belt, with some green stuff on it. A #8 iron is 2-5/8” WIDE! too wide for my honing guide. Had to do ...

Handplanes #1: I didn't know it was going to be this addictive.

04-20-2010 01:51 AM by Newfounlandwood | 15 comments »

Well guys,Let me start off by saying I have always admired old tools. There is something wonderful about holding a tool that a great craftsman may have used to make extraordinary with furniture a hundred years ago. Combine this with my new fascination with hand tools and I knew it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at handplanes. It started out with the Veritas apron plane, which led to many ebay purchases. I have to say I could not have dreamed of a better finnish than these...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #4: Why I bought two Groz hand planes as my starter planes

08-10-2014 04:00 AM by paxorion | 2 comments »

I thought it would help to take a step back on my hand plane tuning blog posts and provide a little background on my hand plane journey of the past few days. ContextAsk anyone for recommendations on a first hand plane, and you’re bound to get a large number folks recommending looking for a pre-WWII hand plane. Personally I’ve never really thought of that to be a good answer (for me) because I think that there is an implied “cost” (time, effort, and money) involved w...

Hall Table #1: A little catch up

02-09-2008 01:30 AM by shawnseanderson | 0 comments »

I thought that I would take a little time to show how we went about the construction of the hall table. This project is currently in the final stages but I can backtrack a little for the sake of discussion. Check back a little later and I will update with some pictures. We started the table off at the lumber store. (almost my favorite place to be) We spent a good deal of time trying to decide what wood that we wanted to use and finally settled on Mahogany. We had some concern about the col...

Medal Chest #11: The Lid, or, No Tablesaw, No Problem!

04-22-2013 01:08 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Oh yeah, this post actually is the result of 6 days in the workshop—-some didn’t have pictures and I didn’t want to bore you with just text, so I put it all together under the title of The Lid. At last, w...

Videos #8: FastCap Hand Planes

07-19-2012 02:02 PM by tyskkvinna | 2 comments »

A radius plane and a standard plane.. Both are just intended for small cleanup, finishing, that sort of thing. I actually use them on a regular basis—I love the radius plane. When I do miniature work they are also fantastic. As I mention in the video, they are a great learning tool if you want to dip your feet into some hand tools but don’t want to make the commitment to something large (in cost or size). You don’t have to try and build an entire project with it, it becom...

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)
