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.

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

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?

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...
