Got this guy for free from work. I paid $25 for a RAS and they wanted the whole corner cleaned out. Unit is a ~1979 Beaver 9” Tilting Table Saw http://www.flickr.com/photos/90883337@N02/9639790797/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/90883337@N02/9639791275/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/90883337@N02/9643027972/
Queue is getting too long.
Back again! It’s been a little while since I posted on this thread about restoring a Stanley Bailey No 7 jointer. I had basically finished the plane last episode, but I hadn’t gotten around to taking pictures (too busy jointing wood, I guess!). Before I post pictures of the final product, I should say that the tote is still broken. I tossed around the idea of making my own, to the point even where I downloaded specs that would have allowed me to do it. However, here’...
I’ll preface this by stating that I’m no journalist, but I figure I might as well start a blog so I can ramble on a bit about what I’ve learned from the great community of people here on LJ’s. Ever since my Pops gave me this old tool box of his Dad’s and I posted a pic of these 2 planes (the Ohio 4-1/4 and the Shelton #4) a couple months ago I’ve been very intrigued by hand planes, after exchanging some messages with DonW and a couple others I’ve s...
Well hello again! This is part 3 in my jointer plane restoration. When we last spoke, I had done the electrolysis process on the body and frog, as well as the smaller parts such as the cap lever, iron, and chip breaker. I also need to mention that the frog that came with the plane was broken off so as not to include the top part or the lateral adjusting lever. Ebay came through with a new one. If I may plug one of my favorite sellers, NHPlaneParts is the man. Granted I am in MA, so th...
So after a quick spritz with some PB (one of my personal favorites), the plane came right apart. My wife’s only complaint with PB is the smell, so I do it outside rather than in the basement. On the downside, I don’t hallucinate anymore from the fumes. Here are some pictures of individual pieces: You’ll note that the newspaper underneath is a high school newspaper. It’s because I am a high school teacher, and I don’t subscribe to any lo...
First blog entry on LJs. I have restored two other planes before this one (both Bailey No. 5s… one for use as a jack, one for use as a scrub), but this one will definitely be the best documented. Here goes. FYI I am done with this restoration and will be adding entries in chronological order as time permits. Truthfully, I’ll try to sneak in an entry between entertaining my 7-month-old. While browsing the Craiger, I came across a sale for a bunch of stuff (none of which I ne...
The final assembly came out very good. The violin 2 passed thru my expectation with respect to sound and strength. I am happy how it came out. The sound is perfect and high enough. The vibration of the plates including the bottom is remarkably balanced. I can fell the effect of the bridge prolong vibrations. The last phase came up with the gluing of the bottom plate, the fretboard, and the fixing of the tailpiece. I made the bridge accordingly using a special medium hard wood. ...
not much to see yet – i found a very rusty draw knife at an antique store and talked them down from $5 to $3 – here it is, as found…
Its been a while since I’ve written a restoration blog, so I figured I’d document this possible save. I’ve started finding a few pre-laterals and kind of like them. My “collector” status has risen to a new level so I don’t mind working on something that will be for history’s sake only. I found this #5 in an antique shop. It wasn’t marked and I had a few other items so I asked the owner what he wanted. The conversation went something like thi...
