rough sawn expectations - 11 replies
So i ordered some 6×6 hemlock timbers from a local sawmill for a project. Two of them were 10 foot and the rest were 8 foot. I didn’t feel comfortable driving over a large mountain with them in a 5.5 foot bed so I scheduled a delivery. The owner showed up and was a decent fellow. I noticed that the timbers seemed heavy as we unloa...

Number 5 crack stability - 10 replies
So i was shifting through my “to do” pile the other day, and I plucked this guy from the wreckage. I started to clean up the sides, and lo and behold there was a crack. It lines up roughly with the mouth, and only goes up one side. The mouth has hairlines on both sides, as pictured. I know the resale value of the plane is bas...

So i’m kinda new to the old wood turning thing. i’ve had an old montgomery ward lathe kicking around forever. found a motor for it last summer, 1/3 horse, 1725 RPm. This matches the spec of what originally came with the lathe. Today I was working on my lathe bench and was doing a mock-up to confirm it was going to work as planned...

Looking for input on green wood roubo bench - 0 replies
Hello, I had a project in mind, and I’ve been wondering if anyone had some input they could share. After reading up on timber framing, I noted that most framing is done with green wood. Considering a full roubo bench build as a timber framing project, assuming the bench top and legs are constructed with wood cut from the same tree, woul...

steel vise screw and nut for sale - 1 reply
Okay so once upon a time i purchased an oak leg vise. At that point I didn’t know what a vise was used for. Unfortunately the oak jaws were lost in a fire, but I had the screw removed at that time. I was holding onto the screw in hopes of building my own jaws. However I recently was gifted a Littlestown 10 inch vice that I’m goin...

Is this pre-lateral plane a Stanley? - 11 replies
HI again!So from the same flea market as my other post on the milled two-piece knob, I found this guy here: Thanks! While the frog details point to a type 4, the base doesn’t have the expected frog receiver shape. Sadly the side has been damaged. Not sure how i’m going to fix that yet. Any ideas on the maker?
|04-30-2012 06:41 PM||
Okay, So i went to the flea market this past weekend, and found this guy. At first glance I thought it had a small hairline in the knob, but after closer examination, I discovered it was supposed to be that way. Anyone ever seen this before? The patina is consistant with the handle and the rest of the tool. Blade is a nice old Shweethart iro...
