Stanley-Bailey #4 Restore

11-19-2012 09:07 PM by scamp238 | 38 comments »

I bought a Stanley-Bailey #4 plane today. This is my first plane and I want to restore it the right way. I am on a limited budget, so it may take a while. I want to use the parts that were there when I bought it. I know very little about planes, so I am asking for some help/suggestions from all the great LJs out there. Let me post a few pictures so you can get an idea of what I have to work with. I hope there is someone out there that can help me.

Craftsman Style Kitchen Cabinets #2: Not Even Cabinets Yet

11-07-2012 11:17 PM by Douglas | 1 comment »

With the windows in an awesome state, it was time to re-arrange some things in the kitchen. There’s a small bedroom off the kitchen, who’s door went right into the kitchen, right next to the sink—a bad place for it. I decided to move that doorway around the corner, pointing towards the rear of the house, making it more private and no longer interfering with the main kitchen area. Luckily, the wall where I wanted to put the door had originally been an exterior window, and the...

10-30-2012 03:44 PM by Jason™ | 9 comments »

◄ Update ►After soaking in the Evaporust solution for a few days I strained the solution back into the bottle and cleaned off the vise to see how well this stuff worked. I was very surprised at how well this stuff works I can only imagine what the electrosysis method would have done!! I scuffed the front a bit to be able to see the markings a little bit better. Note: The Electrolysis method was something I been really wanting to understand better and possibly try in the future. The only...

Two very different planes. A Shelton Block plane Just a little on the rusty side. Another look? Being steel instead of cast iron, yep, it do get a bit orange. The second plane is a little bit bigger, though.. Looks like a new knob will have to be turned. A nice RED frog.. Seems to be alright. Big silver adjuster wheel. Chrome everywhere. Blue paint around the Craftsman logo. Looks like i will have some fun with this clean up. Got out the tools, the bel...

Saw Restoration #2: 75 Cent Disston Saw

10-24-2012 03:07 AM by gilleseg | 3 comments »

The wife and I went out to a local flea market a week ago, looking for nothing in particular. This was the last flea market for the year at this particular venue and the first time we had been this year. I cam across a pair of saws, painted and looking sad. They had tags on the at $1.50 each. I was looking at them and wasn’t sure if I wanted to take on a couple more saws, when the proprietor came around and told me everything was half off. She said it was on account of wanting to cle...
