Plane restoration #3: Stanley/Bailey No 6 second plane part #1

1690 days ago by Alonso | 10 comments »

I came back from work today, after a very long break of 17 days, it was a really hard day since I had it to get use to wake up early deal with the traffic, the boss etc, I was literally dragging all day long, and to my surprise I found that the second No 6 I got on ebay was already waiting for me to start the restoration. Let’s take a look what I got. I think I’m having some kind of attraction for highly abused and damaged planes, I really love to see the restoration process being...

Handplane Restoration #24: Stanley 112

1736 days ago by WayneC | 9 comments »

This was a craigslist item that showed up yesterday evening. I quickly arranged to head over to the sellers house and pick it up. The Stanley 112 is a scraping plane used for finishing surfaces similar to a card scraper. According to Patrick Leach, “this is one of the finest tools ever to have been unleashed on the public from New Britain, Connecticut.” It has been on my shopping list for a while. This one is in pretty good shape. It has some light rust and is missing i...

Hand Tool Journey #8: Electrolysis on the Stanley No. 62

1736 days ago by Blake | 21 comments »

I always wanted to try electrolysis rust removal and it is just as simple and effective as they claim. Note: This is not a full tutorial on electrolysis. You must research the many other resources on the internet before attempting this your self. IT CAN BE DEADLY AND ILLEGAL IF DONE WRONG. This is the old Stanley No. 62 low angle jack plane that needed to be de-rusted: Here it is in pieces: And here are a couple “before” photos of the body: Here̵...

Hand Tool Journey #6: Stanley No. 62 Low Angle Jack

1739 days ago by Blake | 15 comments »

Stanley No. 62 Low Angle Jack Plane Some of the modern high end hand tool manufacturers have been marketing “low angle jack planes” for years now like it is something nobody has ever thought of before. I mean, I had never heard of a low angle jack before I started reading reviews on Lie Nielson and Veritas versions in Popular Woodworking Magazine. Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane: And of course we all know that Stanley, the most famous maker of quality hand tools has SERI...

What hand plane do I have? #1: Stanley hand plane

1797 days ago by lightvet | 8 comments »

Hello, I am trying to find out more about the Stanley hand plane I have. I have visited websites with a lot of information but I am still at a loss as to production date, etc. Under the frog stamped on the bed is c 74 1/2, the frog has c 44 on the bottom and U 4 (vertically) on the other side. The lever cap/ chip breaker has 8 U on the bottom, and the blade has “Defiance, by Stanley, made in USA, No. 1205) on it. Anyone have any suggestions for info? Thanks, Jeff

My Hand Tool Education #1: My First Hand Plane - Stanley #5

1965 days ago by Matt | 2 comments »

Rather than code a bunch of pictures into this post, here is a link to my Flickr Set for this plane. So, recently I’ve taken an interest in hand tools. I don’t own any vintage or nice ones (unless you count this one) but that may change really soon. I have always been a history buff so that part of it appeals to me as well. I think being able to go out to my shop and having some nice quiet time working with wood would be very satisfying. Rather than go through my educa...

First Shop #7: Stanley's Finest and Refinishing

2416 days ago by YooperCasey | 3 comments »

So enough with the microscope for today and on to my newest tools purchases and a project! (Finally they say!) There you see a Stanley block plane, small Stanley hand saw, and a piece of granite. The block plane will be functional with some loving on the jig. The saw is to replace my japanese pull saw until my new one arrives from Woodcraft. The one I have now is losing teeth (an Irwin pullsaw), though I can’t fault the saw, it has done everything from treated lumber to hard mapl...

Holtzapffel Bench #4: Plane Old Planes

2460 days ago by Olaf Gradin | 5 comments »

Last night I decided to commit to some face planing to get my boards ready for the glue-up. I’ve cut rough dimensions of the four stretchers and two boards each to make up two legs. To do this, I need to joint plane the faces so I get a good flat surface to merge. Afterwards, I will be finishing up the dimensions to exact measurements and smooth planing. Unfortunately, I don’t have a quality hand plane in my arsenal. I worked the face of one piece last night for about an ho...
