Stanley No. 7 Identification

1118 days ago by hodgepodge | 9 comments »

Ok, so I found this plane at an estate sale a few months ago. I decided to finally give it a make over when I started trying to ID the type. Using the flow charts I find online I would assume it is a type 4. However, there are some strange things that don’t match like the frog screws being round head screws, and the frog seat on the sole is kind of strange. Also, the lever cap has an interesting design on near the bottom. The only marks on the sole that I can make out is No 7 in front o...

Summer of 1995, Lake Forest IL. As a young remodeler with a crew of 4 carpenters, I was really excited to get this job. It was a massive 1940’s Cape Cod style house with big plans for a covered porch off the back of the kitchen and a simple addition to be used as a mud room with cabinets, lockers and a 4 ft. bench for the four growing boys and all of their stuff like hockey equipment, skate boards, school back packs, coats and boots…you name it. The clients also wanted to add...

More later. I̵...

Grandfather's Tools

1125 days ago by Transition | 5 comments »

My Granfather’s name was Amos Leveille (pronounced “lev-ee-ay”) – 1909-1973. Upon my mother’s passing several years ago, I inherited what was left of my his tools. They had been left rusting in my mom’s basement for decades. I have been slowly refurbishing them, and putting them to use. It has been very enlightening, from both a tool and a person history perspective. I have given new life to these pieces, and they have returned the favor! Take a look&...
