Stanley #29 Transitional "Chute (Shoot) Plane and Board"

09-25-2015 03:17 AM by Trakem2 | 13 comments »

This is a Stanley #29 Fore plane that I converted into a chute plane. Since I am on a tight budget, I couldnt afford a LV or LN chute plane, so I decided to make a chute plane from a transitional plane after seeing what poopiekat came up with. Bought the 29 off the bay for less than 20 bucks. When I got it it needed a little work to flatten the sole and square the right side to the sole. I then needed to come up with a way to get the tote to a comfortable position, so I fitted a block to fit ...

Vintage Stanley 45 Plane

09-19-2015 10:35 AM by CTinPompano | 2 comments »

Hello wood workers. I lost my dad last December who was a wonderful wood enthusiast. We’ve found good homes for most of dad’s favorite tools, but I’m wondering if any of you could help me to determine the value of his Stanley 45 plane. A picture is attached. I sure would appreciate any advice you could provide!

Stanley No. 104 Wood Level Restoration

08-16-2015 03:59 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

This story starts on a Saturday morning when I got a Facebook message from my friend Rob. “We are having a yard sale and there are a ton of old tools” Rob said. So ofcourse I got in my car and headed over there. I found a lot of great old tools but this week we will focus on the Level I found, It’s a Stanley No. 104 Level 18” long. This will make a great restoration project I thought… I made a video of the restoration as well, you can see it here: View on Yo...

New old planes

Well I have bugun to start my collection of fine hand tools. I recently spent 3 weeks trying to get the Stanley Bailey set of old hand planes.

So as the days progressed the planes begain to arrive at my home. I am now the very proud owner of a small Stanley 110 a stanley handyman a stanley #4 flat bottom a Stainley #5 2 Stanley #6 p...

01-10-2015 04:48 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 53 comments »

A blog entry dedicated to a Type of Stanley bench plane that gets no respect, the Cordovan line. My interest in them started because the plane I got from my Dad is a Cordovan smoother, a #4. A picture of his: A beautiful example of the type is this Jack: It came in a nice, stapled box with bumblebee graphics: So, starting with the last couple entries in this post of early type study information: Type 19. Planes made by Stanley 1948-1961. All of the features of th...

Stanley Bailey #4 hand plane restoration

12-12-2014 07:39 PM by RecyclingDave | 6 comments »

I’m new to hand planes so I wanted to start with fixer uppers because I feel like the end result is the effort you put into it. I picked up a Stanley Bailey #4 and Millers Falls #9? For $40/pair. This is just the start with the Bailey and all I have done so far is a bath in Evapo Rust. More pics and progress to come. Any pointers are welcome as this is new to me. After an Evapo Rust bath

Reshaping a Stanley Sweetheart #62 Tote

11-04-2014 05:44 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

The other day I was working from home, I was bummed out because I had been to busy to do much woodworking lately, so I said “Hey, standing desks are supposed to be good for your, and my “joinery bench” is about the right height, why not put my laptop on the bench?!” If I cant woodwork, I can at least be around my tools. One thing leads to another and while on a conference call I get the bug in me to reshape this plane tote. I’ve always disliked the shape of...

Hand planes...found for a bargain, learning how to refurbish them... #2: Stanley #255 ?

09-17-2014 10:52 PM by MadJester | 13 comments »

Today I cleaned up the smaller plane from yesterday…still not completely satisfied, but it will do. I then tackled a vintage Stanley7”. Inside it is marked “C 255” and has an “x” and a “2” below that (it’s covered by the iron). Back has “Made in USA”. The blade is marked “Stanley No. 220 (13-220A) Made in USA”. Not sure if it’s actually a Stanley plane, but no matter…I have several this size that I...
