Here is the next installment in my restoration. This time through, I will go through cleaning up the parts and rust removal. I will talk about what chemicals I used and you will see how it all worked out. Part 3 will follow sometime soon. https://youtu.be/ZTz3dtE2ikQ
I recently acquired a Stanley 101 & 102 block plane from EBay, for $15 each. These are hammer adjusted planes, and I demonstrate the process on the 101.
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. I wanted to get them all rusted on purpose, so I would gain the knowledge that was going to bw necassry to get them back to good condition and keep them that way. 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...
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...
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
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...
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...
In my above video I share a recent visit that I made to the newly finished woodworking workshop of Frank Klausz. Frank is a world-renowned cabinetmaker and teacher who received his training in his father’s pre-electrical workshop in the mountains of Hungary. See the original blog post here. Before you ask, look at the bottom of this article for a list of all the tools that Frank mentioned in the video. When I first arrived at Frank Klausz’s home I was warmly greeted by Frank,...
I’ve been reading all you guys extolling the virtues of old Stanley Bailey planes for awhile now. Hey, I’ve got a 20 inch spiral head planer and a little 6-inch (power) jointer. I thought I didn’t need any of that grampa’s old iron. But, one day, something snapped. Two weeks later, here’s where I am. The photos here are straight from ebay. I’ve given them all a basic cleaning since them, but have taken no new photos (no 3 is not here yet). My...
Found that the honing guide that I use for plane blades and chisels doesn’t work on stokeshave blades. The blade from my Stanley no. 151 is too short to get the required 25° angle. Luckily, I had a short piece of steel flat bar with a hole drilled earlier at the right place. I cut it to make a table saw splitter, but ended up using another piece. The blade gave nice shavings when I learned what the right blade depth was…
