WhoMe – The four braces have (from left to right) a 12” sweep, 10” sweep, 8” sweep and 6” sweep. The sweep refers to the diameter of the circle that the sweep handle moves through during one rotation. The bigger the sweep, the higher the torque you can apply and the less tired you get boring a lot of holes. However, they also cut slower because your hand is having to travel further to get back to the starting point. For that reason, a 6” sweep can’t be beat for driving large screws and bolts.

Al - What the hell does 10+MP mean?

Thanks Glen. I’m working very long hours each week at the moment in London and staying in hotels all week so not much time for woodworking, let alone blogging. It was a shame I never got to write the last few posts on my sawtalk blog series. I will return to it and finish it as soon as time permits. When I started working at the client site (a global bank), the three project workstreams that I was sent in to turn around were all in the red and the client wasn’t happy. I worked my butt off to turn them amber then green so we were hitting our delivery dates again. I kept my foot on the accelerator and now they have turned red again. This time though, WE are waiting on the CLIENT. Tomorrow I get to stand up and tell THEM to pull THEIR finger out. Nice!

I’ve got enough problems without saws. One of you guys that’s over there daily, post some of the finest pictures here. Same with the bench thread.

I just came here after looking at that Andy… it’s definitely awesome.
-

I went to a couple more antique shops today… didn’t get anything this time, BUT I did get to see and hold a #1! I was just browsing through some of the cases when I saw it. I found the guy I was talking to earlier and had to give it a look. I was looking at it and he says “Holy Cow, is that the right price?!” It was listed for $950. It had pitting on the blade, and sole, a broken wedge shaped piece out of the base of the knob. It had a Stanley Rule in an arch and then & Tool Co under/in the arch. I told him “It would probably bring that on a normal day.” He was surprised by that, and was then asking me all kinds of questions. It was fun, I guess. I imagine it may be a long time before I ever get to hold one of those again.

Hello Chaps:-) I’m back- from my holiday in Turkey. A beautiful country, lovely people and great food :-)

I’ve tried to catch up as best I can?- In brief:

Mos- That Cat was incredible. I’m sure I would have ‘Cacked my pants’ if I’d seen that in my garden!

JayT- That Buck Rogers plane is so ugly it’s Gorgeous- for def!

Arlin- Don’t sell the #1- polish it up man, – place it on top of the TV- so when there is shite on, you have something good to look at. Simples:-)

Calendar—Hell Yeah…........................ Chris & Mos pics -for sure

Andy- That open handle- brass backed- Leap Frog S&J brought a tear to my eye (You lucky Swine)

Al- The Porche- ask yourself, ‘Is it a Hairdressers car?’... But would a Hairdresser know how to drive it? lol. wtf buy it anyhow. Al- Good news is that all the swimming I did on holiday has done my dodgey back the world of good. So I can cancel that Chiropractor session I was booked in for. Anyhow I don’t think I would have made it up the driveway in one piece?? ;-)

Ebay gods have been good to Johnny- when I got back, this was waiting for me:-

a WODEN #4 -in its’ original box and decal on the handle;

Woden are really well made and look just like RECORDs. Record bought them out in the 60’s (end of lesson:)

Note to self;- No more #4 planes -

Cheers
John.

I’m now a big fan of ’Straight Razors’. Some incredible workmanship and honing goes into these new & vintage razors :-)

Here a link to the Straight Razor Place forum

Do any of you guys use a Straight ‘cut throat’ Razor???

Johnny I have a few straight razors I dont like the shave as well as my 5 blade cartridge but I do know how to shave with one with out cutting my own throat and i keep one in the survival kit because your not going to have access to cartridge razors should the end be near and i like to keep my face fairly well shaven. The first time i used a straight razor i cut my self pretty bad it bled for hours and I am on coumadin so i bleed like a stuck pig. and yea Al I horde meds too I know If the end comes I am in some trouble and will have to work on my health but the family will survive. as we hold the high ground and can last for a long time up there at the ranch

My barber will still hook it up with a hot towel, warm lather, straight razor shave. Every once in a while i let him go to work if i have the time. I tell ya theres nothing like it. A younger italian guy and his brother rockin it old school. Espresso machine on the counter. Straight razors, d&f jokes galore, and sportcenter on flat screens in front of every chair. Its a 40 minute drive and its the only place ill get my haircut.

Don – is that a witherby firmer chisel there? I heart that #12 as well.

Al – whats up, no tennessee pusher? Its about all i know about OCMS but really dig that tune.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! The man boobs scared me back into the shop.

In retaliation, I am trying to make Al jealous.

Before

After

Bedrock type 4 606C. Body was shocked, stripped, sandblasted and then japanned. Yes, japanned, not painted. Everything else steel and iron got an Evaporust bath. The frog was japanned and flattened, while the other parts got wire brushed and polished, as needed. Knob was stripped and finished with BLO, while the tote just got a wax job applied with steel wool. Finally the sole and sides were flattened to 240grit.

Hope you enjoy.
