Traditional Chinese Jack plane, part two

05-27-2014 12:50 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, here we go The plane had a few problems, some from the saw guy not following the lines. So, the mouth was extra big Yep, way too big, and ugly. two, the wedge was too short, allowing the iron to chatter along. First problem to fix was the mouth opening. Happen to have a cut-off from the plane build. Grain should match. Block was a bit big, and I have no resaw stuff to use. Got out the big stuff Sat the block right on the bench’s leg, and gave the big ch...

Craftsman Table Saw 113.298240 Completed

05-20-2014 05:43 PM by jlabos | 5 comments »

I was able to finish the table saw yesterday. The blade is moving up and down well. The tilting gets a little sticky still some times but I figure that will work its self out. The Blaster Teflon dry lube worked well. The Accu-Link belt from Harbor Freight runs smoothly. I recommend anyone near a Harbor Freight picking one up with a coupon, or ordering one online.I waxed the top with Johnson Wax along with the fence and rails so everything slides smoothly. I was able to align the fence with th...

tool load ,plane restorations, help needed Updated with more pics

05-19-2014 02:43 AM by cdnstudentwoodworker | 7 comments »

Recently i picked up three hand planes for 40 bucks at a local swap meet , one being the stanley defiance jack plane i showed earlier , also in the bunch were a stanley 102 and a rapier 400 smooth plane. My Uncle noticed my interest in wood and well… i ended up bringing home one of my grandpas (deceased since 2004) tool boxes full of tools that hadnt been used since they were put down by him. In that crate were a “IDEAL” brand jack plane , a stanley 9 1/2 and a stanley 102. ...

Today's progress on the Craftsman 113.298240

05-17-2014 03:43 AM by jlabos | 1 comment »

After sanding the cast iron top with some 150 and 220 grit sand paper I decided to try the advice of EEngineer. I came across an old bottle of Naval Jelly that belonged to my grandfather so I applied some and let it sit for 10-15 minutes and here’s the result. I never used the product before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It took off a lot of rust so I am happy with the results. There is only a small amount of rust that I will need to sand. I can jump to a higher grit san...

Got some pieces of the table saw cleaned up

05-16-2014 02:54 AM by jlabos | 6 comments »

So here are the wings all cleaned up. I worked with 100, 220, 500, 1000, and then 1200 grit sand paper. I wet sanded the gray painted area and it cleaned up well so I don’t think I will be painting them. I think that they will shine with some wax. There was one small area that I hand to sand down to the metal because there was some sticky gunk stuck to it. The insert had some deep scratches in it so I sanded it down and painted it. The blade guard cleaned up real nice. ...

Craftsman Table Saw 113.298240 Restore

05-14-2014 11:50 PM by jlabos | 10 comments »

I have been putting together a woodworking shop in my basement. My father in-law has a pretty nice set up in his but since I moved over an hour away I decided to build my own. He has a nice older Craftsman contracting saw that I thought would be a nice size for my shop and I was able to find one on Craigslist for $75.00. The ad said that the saw has been sitting for almost 20 years in the garage and has been used as a table. The top was flat but rusty. The blade would crank and tilt but was h...

Dungeon Shop Rehab Center: Stanley Plane

05-12-2014 08:19 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

A very Rusty & Crusty plane showed up today. Under all that gunk is a Stanley T19, #5-1/2 jack plane. Yeah, right. A few more looks before the trip downstairs Iron and lever cap need a bit of clean up The handles are solid, no cracks. Paint might need a touch up, maybe. Hauled all the parts down to the shop. Took the plane apart. I managed to get every bolt out, but one. That little one holding the clip on the back of the frog. Frozen tight. Oh, well, it ca...

Yard sale find, and the rehab

05-07-2014 08:56 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

First yard sales of the season! Wasn’t that great, but a few gems were found. A bundle of saws files, for $0.50, a little rusty, but they will work. Picked up two full sized handsaws at another sale. $2 each. Got one because of who made it, and the second one because the handle was a close match. Why? real cuties, right? Well the top one will be for parts to rebuild the other one. That one just happens to be the first model of skew back saws Henry Disston made, ...

Ok, I won this Rusty & Crusty plane the other day. Showed up this morning on my doorstep. Might have been in the bubble wrap a might long?? The sole was in need of some work As well as most of the rest of this plane shaped object The iron is stamped “Shipleigh’s” might have been from that St. Louis Hardware bunch? Although I hate steel frogs, I figured i would at least give this plane a chance to get back to life. Brought home a few items, to get the Na...
