I can tell that Bandit is fascinated with his drawers… just sayin’ LOL
I admired your creative use of them when you first posted, but I didn’t comment.

OJM, I’ll send you the ones I don’t use. How’s that?

Do the difficulties and/or encumbrances of cambering a bevel up iron generally relegate the BU jack plane to end grain duties?

Tony – Not in my book.

The #62 has an A2 iron, and I put a very slight camber on it. Love it.

Look at this little beauty that I got in the mail yesterday. Sometimes, only sometimes, you buy something then you handle it and you think…this was well worth the money. It’s rare for me, but it can happen. I was very happy about my recently purchased Record #7 and Woodriver jack, but this is beyond anything really. It’s so freakin well made! Can’t wait to use it.

Went to an auction today that had an outstanding collection mostly of planes. Unfortunately, a number of collector/dealers showed up so deals were hard to come by. I did however pickup this #45.

I’m sure the reason none of the big-boys were interested is that it is missing the front depth stop.

Time will tell if this was a good buy. Need cutters, depth stop, and oh yes, some knowledge! Also picked up a 100 and 9 1/4.

The real find that made the trip worthwhile is over in the Yoda’s Saw thread.

Don, I believe it is a type 2. I also believe it is the original jappaning. I’d say about 15% of the outer layer has peeled off leaving behind a duller black. The appearance of this plane is very consistent with the rest of the collection and none of them looked restored.

You bet I’m gonna use it! :) It’s going to have a nice little shelf just for it above my workbench. It even has all 23 cutters and they are clean and sharp.

chrisstef, there might some French folk around here :)

Those knobs look nice. When I refinished the handles on my #7, I should probably have spend a bit more time on it. The wax didn’t turn out as polish-y as I expected…

Lookin for opinions …

Im building new doors for our pantry cabinets. Made from pine. Double doors. 18” wide each filling an opening of 36”. Orientation will be 3 vertical 6” Boards. Chamfered at the edge joints. Secured with battons on the rear. Ill be scrubbing the doors then “rough flattening” leaving tool marks. Amber shellac finish.

Should i work the boards individually or as a complete 18” door slab?

Complete slab. Visually it is going to get busy.

Seriously…...If you are going to chamfer the edge joints then you are going to have three visually separate boards. The scrub flattening gives pretty busy pattern. If the patterns dont match then you have the disparate busy patterns. Now you have to add the OTHER door.

Would you consider working both doors (6 boards) as a unit? That would pull the whole surface together. Not so competitive.

Hmm. Very interesting thoughts Scott. I hear what your saying. Its going to be the focal point of the room to boot so ultra busy wouldnt be ideal. Im dealing with a rather lackluster work surface for big work (36” x 80”ish) but working both doors as one has me thinking for sure.

Luke, those knobs look like they came right out of a stanley factory. awesome job.

Dan, if you really don’t want to build a plane till for all your goodies there, I will GLADLY take a couple of them so you don’t have any storage issues…..
Although, I am leaning towards the bandit suggestion. A drawer. I will have to take a new shot with my crowded drawer once I get my newest acquisition out of the evaporust tomorrow.

Oh, and I picked up that craftsman low angle block plane (stanley 65 clone) for $20. The japanning is lmost 100%. It was just missing the eccentric adjuster for the front plate and the straightening of a pin below the knuckle cap. then it just needs a regrind and sharpen the blade and I will be ready to go. will post a pick soon.

When you guys turn knobs do you use a chuck to hold it or do you pyt it between thhe spit and the center and just part it off I was thinking a chuck might be a better way to finish the dome top.

So you are just getting them close and then parting them off? I am using some new Rockler turning tools they make a fun hobby of turning even more fun. I really love the carbide cutters a lot less time sharpening. And more time turning.

I have been turning chisel handles in Cocobolo. I had a couple crack but most of them are turning out the hard part is making them all look exactly alike, they are very close. I am making them with leather donuts on the end for hammering. I need to cut the leather soon as I have only about 4 more to make for the set of eight. I think I will make another set out of EIRW. Should be as nice set these are for my new 750s. I cant wait till I am done with the totes the prototype looks so cool. and the first four look good too

I will have to go pick up a few more blanks I didn’t count on loosing some to cracks in the stock. When the carbide cutter finds a crack it rips the thing to pieces.

As soon as I am done with the chisel totes I need to make a tote and knob for my 602 it is pretty small stuff so it will be fun to make I will have to make the knob from a profile I got off a no2 I hope it works out its pretty little.

If the plane has a receiver cup on the knob how are you guys making the female for the cup? are you doing it on the lathe or on the drill press.

I tuned my first newer Blue Stanley yesterday. I’m headed to the shop to test it out. I was a bit surprised at the aluminum frog. It was easy to flatten though, unlike the sole. It took several minutes (several being conservative) to get it close enough to head to the granite.

The irons are shorter and not as hard. The caps are painted and the handle doesn’t have a toe. I’m not impressed.

It is better. I know you don’t do it on purpose, but not taking the time to edit says something too.

Thanks, I’ll go back and read it now.

Don, I’ve not seen an aluminum frog before. I’ve wondered why those have to be cast iron, to tell the truth, so I’m very interested in your thoughts. Where was the thing made? I know the purples (crap, what’s the name of the color. We talked about it here…) were made in the US. Are blues Mexico, or ?

I’m not sure what to do with it. It works ok, but I’m not sure I want to sell it as a Stanley, maybe with a stern POS reference? . I’m wondering if a better chip breaker/iron combo would make any difference. I may try just for knowing. Its really s shame, with a decent frog and chip breaker/iron, it would probably be a nice piece.

+1 on the paragraphs, when I see the large block of text I dont read it. Not out of spite or anything its just hard to read, I have a short attention span so I need my info in bite size chunks.

Scott, I went to the LN event yesterday at Highland Woodworking. I chatted with The Schwarz a bit. Told him about my bench, asked him about bench finishes (He uses Spar varnish in his 1-1-1 mix, less plasticy). He had his portable bench and Dutch tool chest there. I got to try out his plow plane. Pretty cool dude.

They were also filming the next episode of the Highland Woodworker so look for me in the next show. I was walking in front of the camera trying to get in the shots. LOL.

I also chatted with the French Ariou (sp?) Rasp fella. I got to try a rasp, they are amazing. Night and day difference with any rasp I have ever tried.

I bought the Standard DT saw and Veritas Brass dogs. They had to ship me the saw because it was not in stock. LN’s missed the order ahead of the event. Seems to be a recurring issue with them.

I cant remember if I said it in this thread but I posted new Deltagrams on my site you do have to join the site to download them.

I also opened my library and posted my first out of copyright publication. It is the Disston saw and file and tool manual. It is full of great information on caring for and sharpening your saws.

I do hope you guys grab the information in these booklets and magazines. Next will be the 200 page Disston “Handbook on Saws.” that one will be a few hours to scan but it is packed full of great stuff.
