« Part 13: Electrolysis is my method of choice for rust removal, what is yours? Part 14 of refurbishing old tools series Part 15: Stanley 95 and holdfasts »

Here is an old plane that BoxCarMarty helped me find. It seems that the British used a whole bunch of planes to make a window sash. The Americans invented a version to cut the inner and outer groves at the same time.The outer is called the stick because of the sticking board used to make it. The inner grove is a rabbet that the glass would be set in then glazed. My wife has been on me to get her a few old windows so she could put pictures in them and hang em on the wall.

Well being the cheapskate that I am I can now make any size needed.

I feel your pain, Superdav. ;-)

Unfortunately that required you to locate and purchase additional tools. (lol)

Great looking plane!

Post pictures when you complete them.

13 wagons built (two 10’x4’ and eleven 8’x4) all castered with five casters each on the shorties and six on the longies. Had good help from three other dads. One of which knows his way around tools as much as I do though not as good at creatively planning the construction (Ham you’ll know what I mean). Lot of work done though.

Jeff thanks, and I will post some of the production runs from this plane. I have another one with the same pattern that will get some attention, along with a few smaller planes;) What are the chances of coming across two of those planes? I see you changed your avatar. Nice. More to come, I have the whole week off. Lots of shop time.
Rob are you OK?
Are we a bit click happy. You got to much sun at Disney world didn’t you?
thanks Guys.

I came, I saw, I liked!

Nice video! I like your videos, simple & to the point. You let the action of the plane do all the talking.

Yeah I know, I will work on my irons when I return from vacation.

Thanks for sharing & the motivation.
