Stanley No. 18 Block Plane for Sale - 3 replies
I was at an auction this weekend and bought a bundle of block planes including an extra I don’t need. Please see the pics below for a Stanley No. 18 block plane, looks to be a Type 11 from the V-logo on the blade. I can’t say for sure since I’m not entirely sure if the type studies are the same between bench and block planes....

Getting Sawdust out of Your Nose - 13 replies
I don’t know if this technically counts as “safety,” but I couldn’t think of a better place to put it. I’m sure everyone’s reached a point where after a long day in the workshop you blow sawdust out of your nose for the next few days. Allergies and lung health aside, I find it pretty annoying to have a lay...

Looking for Osage Orange Wood - 8 replies
Hello all, I am looking to purchase a small quantity of osage orange wood to make a couple of buck saws. The pieces would need to be 4/4 thickness at least, 4-6” wide, and only 30” long. I would be looking for (8) pieces that fit this description. I am also looking for a couple pieces that are 8/4, 4” wide and 20”...

Looking for Mesquite lumber - 8 replies
Good morning all, I am looking for some 4/4, 5/4, 8/4, 10/4, and/or 12/4 mesquite lumber that would be suitable for making molding planes. Quartersawn would be great, thought I know that’s not usually feasible with mesquite due to the way it grows. I am looking for boards around 6” wide. Long boards are not necessary, and I w...

Using Aspen for Furniture - 5 replies
Good afternoon all, I will probably be thinning the woods a bit this fall and will probably take down a few 18-24” diameter big-tooth aspen trees. There is an Amish guy down the road with a sawmill, and I was thinking of having him mill those aspen logs up (along with a couple black cherry logs). Is aspen any good for building furni...

Calling all No. 45 owners... - 26 replies
I recently acquired a No. 45 with cutters, but without any of the wooden boxes for the cutters. As such I would like to make some boxes to hold the cutters, but thought it would be cool if I could make reproduction boxes similar to the ones that they would have come in. Here’s where I need help. I have been unable to find anything wit...

Tool Gloat - Wards Master (i.e., Stanley) No. 45 - 5 replies
I was able to score this Wards Master No. 45 on the bay recently for $80. The plane is the exact same as a Stanley No. 45 – you can even see where they ground off the “Stanley” name on the hoop! As far as I can tell, the only parts I’m missing are cutters #10, 11, 15, 23, and 24. I imagine those will be a pain to fin...

Millers Falls No. 85 Box - 1 reply
I have a box for a Millers Falls No. 85 that came with the plane I just purchased. I have no use for the box as I have no desire for the plane to sit unused on a shelf, so I figured I’d open it up to my fellow LJs. I know the box is rough, but I figured someone might like it for displaying. Please PM with any offers,...

I found a Stanley No. 2 for far less than it’s worth at a flea market (or, if you will, rescued it). Its condition is a little rough with some rust on the lever cap and the iron/chipbreaker. Other than that, the tote and knob are in excellent condition, save for some finish wear and patina, and there are no chips, nicks, or gouges in the...

Looking for a Stanley No. 2 Lever Cap - 0 replies
I just bought a Stanley No. 2 at a flea market that’s missing a lever cap. Anyone have one (or know someone who does) that would be willing to sell?
