- Fox Chapel Publishing Bench Planes with Jim KingShott
- Brand: Fox Chapel Publishing | Category: DVDs
This is a review of the DVD Bench planes by Jim Kingshott. Jim is a lifelong woodworker who comes from a line of wood workers going back many generations. This video is full of knowledge about how to use hand planes for bench work. The video starts out with Jim fetteling a modern #8 Bailey pattern plane. He explains the operation and adjustment of the plane in detail and sharpens the blade.
He then moves on to a wooden jack plane and finally to a Norris Infil plane. He uses the various planes and contrasts them.
He covers a lot of ground taking a board preparing it on all 4 sides and then he uses planes to edge joint 3 boards to be glued up into a panel.
He briefly covers shooting board and then goes on to discuss smoothing planes. One thing that is real interesting is his approach to course, medium and fine. He tends to use the wooden jack plane for course work, then a bailey or bedrock jointer for medium work and then he moves on to an infil jointer for doing the fine work. Very interesting to see.
This video is highly recommended. I obtained my copy from Craftsman Studio. (one of my favorite on-line vendors)
The video was filmed in 1995 and is 75 minutes in length.
I have added a review of his Special Planes video it can be found here.
For another for bench plane use video, you can also check out my review of Rob Cosman’s Rough to ready.
