Antique Stanley #31 Transitional Jointer Plane for sale - 8 replies

This is a 24” long jointer plane. The patent date of the plane iron cap reads 1867. When I disassembled it I noticed that the lateral adjustment turns freely but it doesn’t engage the iron. It looks a bit worn. I believe it’s all original. $50 plus shipping from 85233.

Record #7 handplane for sale - 9 replies

I got the plane bug a few years ago and I’ll be selling some of my duplicates and antiques. Our fellow Jocks estimated the price from $75 to $100. I’ll let our LJ’er have it for $75 plus shipping from AZ. Record #7. I don’t know the age. The older Record planes have rosewood handles then they used beech and now the...

I got the plane bug a few years ago and I’ll be selling some of my duplicates and antiques. I’d like to know what a fair price is. Record #7. I don’t recall the age. The older Record planes have rosewood handles then they used beech and now they have plastic. The handles on this are dark like rosewood but I wouldn’...

The seat of my rocking chair is a pain in my a$$ - 15 replies

I thought I’d post this tonight to see if anyone has an idea or recommendation I hadn’t thought of. I had a little bit of spalting in some walnut and I decided to take a risk and use it in my chair seat. The soft area got damaged pretty quickly when i was shaping the seat so I put a lot of minwax wood hardener in the punky area. ...

Anyone follow the antique plane trends? - 2 replies

I started to collect some old planes and I found that I prefer to have “users”. I’ve been thinking about selling a few of them. I don’t follow the market for antiques and I was just curious what the trend in price is doing. Are the old planes going up in value or is the market saturated?

Workshop photos - 3 replies

Is there a way for you to tell us how many photo’s people put in their WORKSHOP? Maybe use the number in parenthesis after the workshop e.g. WORKSHOP (4). I click on a lot of workshops that are empty which isn’t that interesting. Thanks for the consideration. MBS

Help with filling and finishing spalted walnut - 4 replies

The rocking chair seat has some spalting. It’s the grey/white part in the picture. I put a lot of minwax wood hardener in it which helped firm up the area. However, the surface is not flat because when I hit it with a sander it really gouged the punky area. I hand planed it down a bit but there are some 1/8” wide and 1/16” ...

Sold – Sold -Sold I bought this used but I never use it. I have another one that is very similar. I haven’t even sharpened this spokeshave.

Saw this on craigslist. its an Abaco 90 Degree Miter Clamp. I don’t want one but it’s different than I’ve seen before. Seems like it has limited use and its expensive too.

Plane iron sharpening - 7 replies

After reading some threads on sharpening I decided to tune up my #62 bevel-up and #5 bevel-down planes (not my favorite task). I want to see if I’m thinking about the functionality correctly. I latched on to one of Don’s comments that the back is more important than the front. Yet, most of the time is spent on polishing the beve...

Sawstop - Congress passed legislation that all saws must have the technology in 2013 - 123 replies

Just kidding! I had you going though, didn’t I? I just finished responding to a question about the saw from someone who has decided to buy one. I’m amazed about the passion people have about the saw. It reminds me of Ali – everyone watched him either because they loved him or they hated him. Sawstop threads are one of th...

Is Lee Valley Veritas PM-V11 plane iron worth the extra $15? - 13 replies

It’s not a lot of money. Just wondering if anyone who uses planes a lot has been able to tell a difference between the PM-V11 and the O1 Iron. BTW – I’m a bit surprised that the Woodriver #7 is priced higher than the Veritas. The WR V# has received great reviews but is it worth more than the LV? I have a few Lie Nielson pl...

Router table top isn't flat. Need some advise. - 16 replies

I have a real nice router table setup but the top of the laminated table isn’t flat so the router base is either proud at in some area or below the surface in some area. I can run it through a plywood sander but I think that will just goober up the top. Short of building another top can think of a way to flatten it?

Thein top hat separator question - 5 replies

I’ve seen youtube videos of people testing their top hats without hooking them up to a bag/filter. I couldn’t see any dust leaving the impeller discharge. I’ve also seen them demo the separator and show that there isn’t much dust in the bag but I can’t find any information that shows how much is going into the wyn...

Thein Dust Collection Top Hat Separator. - 3 replies

Got my separator made today. I used 1” High Density particle board and 1/8” poly carbonate plastic. I still need to install the system outside of my shop, build an enclosure around it so I don’t upset the neighbors and punch a hole through the wall to connect the piping.

a note for sawstop owners - 6 replies

I have a sawstop and want to share my recent mistake with you so you don’t make the same one. I was ripping a pc of mdf today. Everything went fine during the cut. I pushed the ripped pc to the outfeed rollers. Then I was moving the remnant to be cut and the corner of the remnant kissed the front of the blade guard, the blade guard h...

My shop is setup just about the way I want it (for now) - 16 replies

There are a few things I’ve done that I really like and I would do over again. And a few things I would do differently. I guess this is the forum to share the good, the bad, and the ugly. Most of the ideas listed below were developed while I was working in a 2 car garage. I was fortunate enough to build a larger garage and incorporate ...
