Plane restoration #5: Today was a great day......No 4, No 78, and my new favorite tool No 220

1657 days ago by Alonso | 5 comments »

Hey folks, Today I started working on a my sencond Bench/Desk/Chest combo for one of my mother co-workers, everything was looking pretty good, no issues at all, but just kind of bored, I felt sort of lonely for a little while. Usually due to the economic crisis, I have 3 days weekends, so I was going to spend most of the day alone until my dad came from work. Suddenly I heard the ring bell, it was pretty early, (not even (9:00 am.) and next to the door it was the mailman along wi...

Handplane Restoration #3: Selecting Planes for Restoration

2680 days ago by WayneC | 5 comments »

Again I am plagued with long work days. I’m on a dinner break with one more work meeting tonight. Given this, I thought I would continue the discussion from yesterday. I’m really longing for some shop time. There are a number of factors that you should consider before you decide to purchase an old plane and once you have purchased it if you should restore it. Old hand planes can be found be found in a wide variety of places including garage sales, flea markets, antique store...

Handplane Restoration #4: End of a long week

2679 days ago by WayneC | 5 comments »

Today marks the end of a long week. So I think I will take it easy tonight. Most days have been in excess of 12 hours. But, I’m still hoping to get something productive done over the weekend. Next week I will be traveling to Houston, so there will be little opportunity for creativity. Shortly after I arrived home, my daughter returned from the mailbox with my latest eBay purchase. Yes, it happens to be a handplane. Who could guess? I should try out the series capability and pos...

Restoring a Number 7 Bailey Jointer Plane #4: Before and After pictures, and some shavings

348 days ago by MrFid | 5 comments »

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’...

Hand Tool Journey #42: Stanley SW #358 Miter Box Restoration #8...Getting a handle on things..

3 days ago by Airframer | 5 comments »

Moving forward with the saw restoration.. The original tote on this saw is usable but ugly and pretty beat up so a new one is in order. TGIAG to the rescue! I have some slightly thicker than 4/4 African Mahogany on hand and it should make for a fine looking handle so why the heck not. The next few pics will be a “well duh” series for some of you but I have seen some questions asked around the forums about dimensioning wood with handplanes and I figured this was as go...

Planes #1: Heres where it all begins.

1642 days ago by TD Bridges | 5 comments »

Hello, my name is TD and I’m a planeaholic. There I said it, they say that admitting you have a problem is the biggest step. Whew! Now I can get to the good stuff. Lets take a look at where it all began I was walking through a local junk store just minding my own business when my eyes were drawn to a collection of rusty metal items assembled in what looked to be the shape of a plane (I had seen planes before here on Lumberjocks but had never encountered one in the wild). I had ...

Restoring a Number 7 Bailey Jointer Plane #3: Final cleaning and japanning

360 days ago by MrFid | 5 comments »

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...

Yet another Handplane Restoration blog #3: number 6 almost done...

790 days ago by John | 5 comments »

I have not been good about taking interim pics, here’s the number 6 after electrolysis and a lot of cleaning… she is one good looking plane! since most of the japaning was lost to time, scrubbing and electrolysis, i’m going to eventually sandblast and refinish for now the sole needs to be lapped, the sides brought to 90 degrees, and I’ve got a veritas blade and chip breaker on order (I almost went with the IBC/Crosman but for the 50% premium over lee valley...
