Mauricio, What rod is missing? Is it a short or long fence rod? I may have an extra I could send you. I had a 45 that was missing lots of parts and I ended up buying one that was complete so I have some spare stuff now..

My surprise Plane from the show was supposed to be here yesterday but LN screwed up my order and I didn’t get the plane they sent me the frog for the plane a 650 dollar frog get real people. I think they have it squared away but now I get to wait another 2-3 weeks for it to get made at least the casting is done. The rest is just parts that they have she said they have to do the machining as the castings are rough and not complete. I cant wait to show this to you guys your going to dig it. Especially Al And if you like it there are 2 left as of today so if you willing to spring the 650 you can have one too.

I stick the paper on granite tiles or sometimes MDF.. I usually use the tiles for the backs of blades and MDF for the plane soles…

If the paper is still good I will save it and use it for when I sand the other metal parts of a plane or tool.

Smitty, I am curious as to why you choose to rip panels on the RAS as opposed to the TS? I love my RAS and I use it all the time for cross cuts and dados but I do all my ripping on the TS.

I do agree about not needing a super premium saw… My table saw blade is ever so slightly off so when I rip a board it wont leave a dead square edge. I could invest more time and or money to fine tune it a little better but I always hit the edges with a plane after they are ripped so its not a huge issue for me.

I was just about to comment on that, Dan. Ripping on the RAS would scare me for some reason. I know we’ve had this fight on other threads. I wouldn’t have the room even if I wanted to try it. I’ve got an old JET with an Incra and a PALS rig and it’s dialed in better than I’ll ever need. I crosscut exclusively on the RAS.
.
I’d have no qualms going out and buying a massive PM tablesaw; I’ve always wanted one. I just wouldn’t use it any more or differently that I use mine now. I’d just sit around admiring it, which is something.
.
I can’t see any of Dude’s pictures. I’m looking to seeing that 51 when I get home. I can’t believe more of us don’t have that plane. The Stanley is the dream; but for $500, the LN is a pretty sweet deal. I mean, how often do you spend $500 on tools? All the time.

#20710 posted 664 days ago

I have come close to pulling the trigger on the LN #51 a couple times but I just couldn’t do it. Its hard to drop 500 on a plane especially when the most I have spent on a plane is 250. I would have to double that to get the 51… I will get it someday because its my dream plane but I can wait a bit longer.

I would have no problem using the RAS to rip but I just have never seen an advantage or need to use it for that. Like Al said I have it all set for a cross cut and my table saw is right there for ripping.

The only powered saw I have is a RAS…I’ve ripped with it, even ripped some plywood. Yes, it is scary as all heck, but its all I’ve got!

I actually think I’ll use it when I build my bench. I don’t have any hand saws sharpened well enough to rip as many boards as I’ll need. I’m going to build it out of 2X8’s ripped in half…at least that’s my plan – that may change the first time a shoot a board off the RAS and into the living room…

oops….....

You guys tell me if I goofed this one…I’m restoring a V&B 903 smoother this week. I can’t find any data online to guess what year or type to help ya answer my question, but, here’s what I found after removing the rust and paint and rust from the knob area…

...no threads cast into the steel.

Was there some sort of plastic threaded insert that I completely destroyed? I DID dig out some grayish material while cleaning…just thought it was ancient JB Weld at first. oops.

Realistically, I’m certain I can fix the problem. But I kinda want to know what was original to this plane. Ya know?

ABOUT RIPPING ON A RAS- The old-timer technique for cutting beyond the capacity of the saw was to turn the blade parallel to the table with the cutting edge facing toward you. Then you slide the sheet of plywood you want to cut on it’s edge on the floor and through the blade, much like a panel saw. I’ve never tried it myself, sounds a bit iffy… but the 1940’s Dewalt manuals used to tell you to do it.

Terry, I have V&B #903 just like yours and the hole for the knob bolt is threaded. I also have a V&B #905 and that one is threaded as well. So I don’t think you did anything wrong. My best guess would be that at some point the knob bolt got rusted and froze up. Someone probably tried removing with to much force, snapped the bolt off and then drilled it out. They probably fixed it by putting some kind of filler in there and then tapped the bolt into that. The filler did not last though as you found out… I cant tell you how to fix it as I have never had to do before but its def worth fixing. The V&B planes are really nice. I imagine you can fill the hole with something and tap the bolt back into it.

Here is mine

The idea I had for fixing the one of “new” my planes, which has a stripped depth stop, was to get aluminum (or some kind of metal) tube, glue/solder it in place, and then tap that to match the screw threads. I imagine that could work for this situation too

Stumpy, Sounds iffy to me too… I don’t think I will ever be trying that on my RAS.. I do think its great that the RAS can do so many different things but that does not necessarily mean its the right tool for all those jobs… For example my RAS has a router collet on it so that you can turn the motor and use the RAS as an over top router. I tried it out and it does work but its not quite as good as using an actual router.

#20724 posted 664 days ago

Here’s how I solved my TS ripping problem… I mounted two (the older one I started out with and a new one I got on clearance) solid cast iron winged Deltas to each other side by side, making one long double bladed saw. Then I bought an aftermarket fence on sale for $200 with a rail long enough for both saws. Now I have a about 5 feet of flat cast iron surface, about 4 feet of ripping capacity, plus I can keep a rip blade on one and a crosscut (or dado) blade on the other. One is left tilt, the other is right tilt. One overhead blade guard/dust collection can service both. Nearby I mounted two radial arm saws side by side, one for 90 degree crosscuts, one for angled cuts. Near that I have two band saws, one for resawing, the other for tight curves.

In case you haven’t caught on… I hate changing blades! Now, if I could only buy a separate router for each bit…

Stumps, if you think I’m a chiropractor, then you probably think I give a shit about the number of posts on an internet website. I think you have me confused with someone else. I’ll take your vote as a “no” on the car. Duly registered.
.
I’m not, however, confused about Don’s desire for the Buck Rogers. I recall you wanting one for a long time. I’ve been keeping an eye out but never found one without a ridiculous tag. So ugly you got to love it.
. I did some woodworking today, not worthy of a post, but I was at least in the shop. Deer cracked my 2y nectarine tree, one that I really was nurturing. Love fruit trees. I ripped some stakes and did my best to mend it. Wrapped the cage with that gutter liner stuff. Made me a bit sad, actually. I hate to spray that stuff because I really like them out there. If anyone knows a bunch about mending snapped trees, please PM me.
.
I showed off my new grease box today and it was a hit. As above, there was great confusion (but with dignity and admiration) about the construction. It was a hit. I really love that thing.

Hey guys
I finally paid off some planes I guy saved for me. I made payments for almost 18 months and this is what I got

Stanley #1, #2, #3, #5 1/4 and two other great finds

It is setting next to a stanley #2 which I bought also. All the planes I bought were in the box and have 100% of their japanning and on apoligies on the totes and knobs, no nicks, no dents or anything

Here is the #1 along side the #3 in pristine condition I bought also

and here is the #1 along side a # 5 1/4 in pristine condition

Here is the family shot

This is a susprise and it is a pre #80 made from Mohogony which was made by a pattern maker

and last picture of the scrapper plane. To let you know the metal is made from one piece of nickel and either carved out or it was pored this way. It is also 13” from handle to handle

The last picture is of a ruler he sent me. It is bound in brass and has a hook coming out of one end. I guess it is to help measure with

and last to show is this stanley A #39.1 which equals 1” wide dado plane

This dado plane is a type 1 he told me and it came with a box and perfect condition.

All of the metal is almost new and never been sharpened just some surface rust on 2 of the blades and chip breakers.

I got all of it for $2k

I never knew the #2 and the #602 were identical except for the frog. I thing I will sell the 602 or maybe just keep it because it completes the rest of my bedrocks also

How about a few more Block planes to look at? I seem to have a few, but two seem to be related..

Both WERE sold by Sears, one IS a Craftsman, the other is a Dunlap. Both look like Stanley #220? Ah, but there are some differences ( Viva la Difference!)

Cap irons are a bit different, can you tell?

The Dunlap iron will not work on the craftsman plane. Look at the adjuster screws. I do have another relative of these two, might just be the Runt of the litter?

Head count is now at TEN. There is even a Fulton Label on one of the planes! Find it?
