Jameson and Co. 5" Brace

09-27-2013 04:12 PM by WayneC | 6 comments »

I got this 5” sweep brace as part of an eBay tool lot. This is actually the first brace I have seen with this small of a sweep. It is marked “Jameson and Co. Warrantied”. I Googled the company and only found one reference for the company name. It was from Newcastle UK. If any of the UK Lumberjocks have any info I would greatly appreciate it. This is a photo of the brace with my 6” Millers Falls #34 so you can see the size of the brace.

Shop Tools #19: Stanley 140

09-27-2013 02:27 AM by WayneC | 10 comments »

Documenting the addition of another plane to the tool box. This one is a #140 Rabbet and block plane . They are pretty cool planes. One side of the plane can be removed for doing rabbet work on things like tenons. With the side on it can be used like a normal block plane. I’ve been looking for the right one for a while and also have been torn as to if I should get the Lie-Nielsen or stick with an old Stanley. This one is in pretty nice shape and it was about 1/3 the cost of the...

Shop Tools #18: Record 044 Combination Plane #2

09-19-2013 10:53 PM by WayneC | 10 comments »

Documenting the addition of my second Record 044 Plough plane to the shop. This one only came with a single cutter and is missing the short rods. This one was made prior to 1951. My other plane is complete with all cutters and both sets of rods. More info on this plane can be found at the following links. Cornish Workshop Record Planes

Tool Chest Refurb #16: Conclusion!

09-16-2013 01:49 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 28 comments »

Okay, we started here when the evening’s activites went down: Tills were assembled and trimmed up earlier this morning and I was excited to add hardware and apply a finish. So tonight I started by adding a little beading detail using my Stanley #66 beading plane. Once the top edge of each ‘drawer front’ was beaded, it was time to add the ring pulls I had purchased many months ago… I only took a picture of the hole drilling though, sorry… ...

Tool Chest Refurb #15: And We're Ready for Hardware!

09-15-2013 07:06 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 12 comments »

Left off last time looking like this: After pulling clamps and doing some trim work first at the bench… And then at the chest with the Stanley #278 in chisel plane mode… The chest is now looking like this: Tills are marked for pulls, then I’ll add finish and it’ll be reveal time… Until then, thanks for following along!

Shop Tools #17: Stanley Bedrock 605 1/2c

08-30-2013 12:22 AM by WayneC | 7 comments »

Again documenting another plane. I believe this is a type 5, the first of the square sides. This plane was only made in 1911 making it approximately 102 years old. This will be my primary 5 1/2 size user. It was obtained in the mail from eBay today. Main complaints are the tote broken in two places, the chip breaker on the blade backwards, and the frog way out of adjustment. Also, the seller sanded the plane a bit, which I think probably turned some folks off. I disassembled, replace...

Workbench build 2013 #7: Top Installed

08-29-2013 11:49 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 3 comments »

This workbench has came a long way. Started off by ripping down 2×8’s for the legs and the stretchers, then hand to mortise out the legs, create half blind dovetails and I’m finally at the top of the bench. In this video I show how I chose to mount the top of the bench so I can keep everything portable. I also cleaned out the shop a bit and placed the bench in its resting spot. Still lots of cleaning to do in the shop, but the bench is ready to go! Check out the video on YouT...

Shop Tools #16: New Plane Stanley 5 1/4c

08-29-2013 12:06 AM by WayneC | 7 comments »

Just documenting this plane. It will fill this slot in my bench plane family until I get crazy lucky and find a 605 1/4 in the wild or have extra money to plunk down on the LN version of the plane. I am upgrading from a post WW2 version of the plane. This one is an early example and it is corrugated. If you take Patrick Leech at his word this is the scarcest (5 1/4 corrugated plane) of the Stanley bench planes. Unfortunately this one has been drilled to hang on the wall. More info c...

Product Design #2: hewing .. axe? (the Hui)

08-26-2013 10:54 PM by RobynHoodridge | 2 comments »

We have a project coming up that will need rough shaping of branches into square-ish forms. So we’ll need a broad axe to so some hewing. However, instead of going to the effort of sourcing a hen’s tooth here in South Africa, and paying out my adz for it, we set about making one for ourselves. Now we don’t have forging facilities, so this was never going to be a re-hash of the master smith’s methods. We had an old blade from something like a guillotine. Which we aimed t...
