Stanley plane cleanup #1: Getting down to business

34 days ago by BJODay | 6 comments »

A year ago I cleaned up my two planes. One was a Stanley block plane. The other was an Ace Hardrware knock-off that I had purchased a few years ago. They cleaned up well and are usable planes. After reading information here and on other sites I decided I should really try to find a used Stanley #5. The knock-off was similar to a #4. I thought this would be enough to equip my shop for my needs. I started cruising CL and Ebay. My wife began wondering why I had a desire to walk through ant...

3D Printed for Lumberjocks #2: Tiny Stanley

104 days ago by WispWoods | 1 comment »

Stanley must have been one heck of a woodworking super hero to have ALL those tools named after him. Personally, I can’t wait for the day when we can 3D Print tools. Then we can put our OWN names on them!! This project is a step in that direction. A 3D printed Stanley, er… make that David, No 4 handplane. This was printed in a material called “Alumide” at Shapeways. It is a mixture of plastic and aluminum. Super lightweight and fairly durable. While ...

Stanley Defiance Restore Plus box restore

108 days ago by Deycart | 4 comments »

Here is a Defiance Jack that I picked up. The plane was in wonderful condition just missing a cap iron screw. This is more for the box restoration than for the plane. The old tape came off really easy with a bit of help from a heat gun. It just left a really nasty sticky residue. I just keep wiping and applying heat until no more came up. I didn’t really want to experiment with trying to remove all of the residue. Here is how I held the sides together while I...

Hand Tools #1: My Stanley - Bailey No. 4 restoration

146 days ago by Jerry | 6 comments »

My very first woodworking hand tool was this Stanley – Bailey No. 4. I bought it from Craigslist for $10.00. It’s about 50 years old, I bought it from the 45 year old son of the man who had passed on and left it to him. He was not a woodworker. I subsequently bought all 6 of his Henry Disston saws for $30.00 which I will showcase in a future blog entry. The first picture shows the condition of the plane when I bought it. The subsequent pics show the restored plane from a ...

hand plane group therapy (my journey into it) #7: ok I give block planes are nice to have.

155 days ago by jacob34 | 9 comments »

So when I started down this hand plane road I will admit I did not have any idea what I was doing. I purchased hand planes on E Bay with the opinion that I could figure it out as I go, kinda a shot gun approach if you will. This resulted in some purchased that I fell in love with such as a 5 1/4 bench plane that honestly at this point is used more as a smooth plane than a fore plane. I also though bought a block plane well a few, okay, okay I bought like five but they were all different quali...

Shop Tools #21: Stanley 66 Hand Beader

200 days ago by WayneC | 10 comments »

I have wanted one of these for quite a while and last week the gods of eBay smiled upon me. The beader is essentially a mass produced scratch stock that puts profiles on wood. Stanley made them from 1886 to 1941. Because this one is jappaned, it was made before 1898. Handplane Central has some information here. When shopping for them you want to look for one that preferably has its fence and set of 9 cutters. You can also make your own cutters with custom profiles. Both Lee Valle...

202 days ago by Tugboater78 | 12 comments »

On the morning I shipped out my Millers Falls #14, returned from the post office and other errands and had a package sitting on my porch. It was from WayneC The package contained all the parts for a Stanley type 9, in fairly rough shape. Probably the worst looking plane i have received thus far, but i knew what i was getting. japping was in bad shape so was the tote and knob, obviously the tote had been broken and reoaired a few times already, 3 times judging by this picture, but i t...
