Raising panels with the Stanley #4

02-29-2012 01:04 PM by Paul Sellers | 44 comments »

Should I tell you that a plain Jane #4 plane with no retrofit irons, specialist cap irons or dead flat soles is of equal value to the beastly heavyweights engineers and salesmen tell you you need I would of course enter the realms of controversy most men fear to tread. But I have to do it for the benefit of my fellow woodworkers who might think these others are telling truth instead of merely discrediting Leonard Bailey’s entrepreneurial abilities in producing the perfect metal cast plane. As...

Dust Collector Choice

02-28-2012 02:51 AM by rockinmichael | 24 comments »

I’ve recently been in the market for a new dust collector. I really care about filtration, but do I really need a shop fox or grizzly portable cyclone, or should I go for a cheaper single stage model. I am just a hobbyist with a small shop in a two car garage. Any recommendations?

Plane soles should be mostly flat

02-18-2012 09:07 PM by Paul Sellers | 14 comments »

Here is a post I did recently and now want to show you how to do it through a short video. This is not the same plane shown below but it is all the same procedure I use for smoothing planes: Something I have wanted to post on for a while. Next week I will be using a Stanley #4 at the Springfield New Jersey Show and the Fredericksburg Virginia Show Masterclasses I will be teaching for The Woodworking Shows show. It’s an eBay find for £8 – $12. This plane is and always was an amazing...

Ridgid 4512 Table Saw #1: Assembly hints

02-07-2012 12:03 AM by ridgidman | 2 comments »

Just assembled my Ridgid 4512 table saw (heavy) and Bull Dog Pro Max cast iron router table. Both well made pieces of equipment. When assemblying table saw consider these ideas. They worked for me: Place table saw upside down on an 8’ piece of 2×8 with a smaller length beside it for stability.Don’t add top extensions until saw is upright (contrary to instructions)Make sure the side panel with “Ridgid” and 4 holes on it will be on the left side when saw is u...

Watch Box #8: Finished

02-03-2012 04:43 PM by Andy | 42 comments »

Finally I got it done and shipped it off to the customer. He wont get it in his hands until next week, so I will post his impressions when I hear back. I hope its what he wants!!! TIP:Some of you may know about this but many will not. This is my secret to quickly fine sand the box prior to spraying lacquer. I hand sanded down to 220 and then I finish up with green nylon pads. These were bought at the local dollar store. Guess how much? Thats right, a whole dollar. You can buy similar pads ...

Watch Box #7: OOPS!!

02-02-2012 05:26 PM by Andy | 22 comments »

This is why its been awhile since my last post. One of the problems with shaping wood to this extent is any flaws show up. Figured Bigleaf Maple, aka Western Maple, Oregon Maple, Acer macrophyllum, can have pits, bark inclusions, etc… Well, I found a few during the final shaping. I knew I was getting pretty close to maximum depth in one corner, but I couldnt leave that little black spot glaring at me. Then I was all the way through and exposing the bloodwood below, nothing ...
