My new acquisition, Stanley #4 - 13 replies

For those of you that are knowledgeable about Stanley Hand planes what can you tell me about this plane? It was given to me and I am in the process of bringing back to life. There are no markings on the iron or cap iron. There is a faintly stamped number 2 underneath the tote that doesn’t show up in the photos because of flash glare. ...

Nothing is prefect! - 15 replies

Not even the title of this thread. We all have less than perfect sessions in the shop. In my shop screw ups are an abundant resource.

Man, I can be dense at times. My misadventures w/ Old Brown Glue. - 8 replies

Every once in a while my ineptitude really shines. I started using Titebond liquid hide glue last year for certain things and found I have been liking it and using it more and more. My bottle was getting pretty low so I decided to try a bottle of Old Brown Glue, because I’ve read good things about here at LJ. Not having a local source I...

Anyone have any knowledge about this Keen Kutter transition plane? - 9 replies

I just picked this up at an antique store. I paid $25, it is in excellent shape so I though that was worth it.

Does anyone know the history of Keen Kutter an...
