Making an infill plane #1: The beginning

I am in the process of making a set of three shoulder planes , those being 3/4”, 1” and 1 1/4” wide.After doing quite a bit of research I finally decided to base my design on the Spiers shoulder plane. I used Solidworks to design the plane, Now the Solidworks file was transfered over to the waterjet and the side plates were cut out of 3/16” cold rolled steel plate. Next the plates are ground perfectly flat on the surface grinder. Now I had to ...

Let's Build an Infill Shoulder Plane! #1: The beginnings

04-03-2013 02:23 AM by Ripthorn | 15 comments »

Alright, so I planned on doing a multi-part series on building an infill shoulder plane, but then got going on the project, so there won’t be as many parts as I would like, though each part is likely to be long. So get out your notebooks and popcorn, and let’s start this thing! Introduction Let me first say that this is not my own design. I took a lot of ideas, inspiration, etc. from Jeff Wittrock at SMC. His great thread is here. This is my first infill plane, my first ...

A pair of infill shoulder planes #1: The journey begins

04-23-2013 02:56 AM by Ripthorn | 2 comments »

If you’ve been following along, you know that the prototype plane is completed, so I’m ready to start another. If you haven’t seen it, the other blog series is here. In that one I go through a lot of tips and things I picked up along the way. In this series, I will also share new things I learn, but I anticipate going at a faster pace, as I have learned a lot of stuff. All the same tools are used here, so I won’t go over them again. This is meant to be a little le...

24 hours later and I’m back in my favorite chair! It sounds like some has already sourced plane irons in many different ways. Good! Bertha is ordering a brandnew blade, Derosa found some old plane blades at a local junk store and his Dremel with cutting disc is eager to go! Grittyroots has some old molding planes and wants to use an iron from on of those. Bearpie in Jacksonville has some old worn out metal cutting saw blades about 1/8” thick by 2” wide and 18” long. Good ide...

DIY Cyclone Dust Collector

07-18-2009 06:40 AM by SimonSKL | 50 comments »

Inspired by Jeff’s (Jcoulam) homemade cyclone dust collector, I decided to make one just like his. This blog is written to show how I built it. At a local home center, I purchased one 8”x24 metal duct, a 5-ft 2” PVC pipe, a 2” PVC elbow, and two 2” couplers for about $18. The first step is to make the cone. I tried to twist the metal sheet into a cone but just couldn’t make it look right and managed to get a small cut in my hand in the process. Ou...

Jigs #2: Adding some finish + angle gage & clamp block

11-10-2009 04:45 AM by Alonso | 2 comments »

So today I had some free time, I add it some finish to the entire machine, since this is not any kind of furniture at all I decided to to go the hard way, I basically applied some spray paint, the maple parts had some wipe on poly. I also got the time to add the missing angle gage and the clamp block. All I need now is to get some different sandpaper grits and this baby should be ready to be put to the test. I will also like to ask a question. What grits of sandpaper should I get? I ...
