Tap and Screw Jig Tutorial #1: Intro/Screw Dimensioning

11-25-2011 03:28 AM by CartersWhittling | 49 comments »

Hello. This is a new blog series I am doing. The topic is how to make a tap and screw jig for making large wooden screws. To start I will say that I hope many of the readers find this series useful because they can use the knowledge to make their own screws and nuts for clamps, vises, presses, etc… It took my friend and I hours upon hours, spread over months to finally get a functioning tap and screw jig. So my purpose in writing this blog is to give other woodworkers the proper inst...

The Stanley #444 Dovetail Plane #1: An Overview

03-19-2013 12:18 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 46 comments »

Welcome to Part One of a short blog series that is a hands-on presentation of the Stanley #444 Dovetail Tongue and Groove Plane, a tool that was available for a relatively short time and is a rarity in today’s marketplace. Offered by Stanley from 1912-1938, the plane is infrequently listed for sale on eBay with a collector’s price tag.
