I found a plane, very similar to that tiny Buck Bros. I also found a Stanley Handyman, same color & size as your English made Stanley, but made in USA. After I get my chisels where thay need to be, I’ll tackle my plane collection.

Let’s get them going Randy. When you have them cleaned up, sharp and ready to go. It makes you want to get in the shop and build something.

Hi Dave. Glad to see you back and posting. Great videos. My little Stanley block plane is a favorite of mine, especially for smoothing end grain, but also for edges and chamfers. I know there are a lot of expensive block planes out there, but I’ve never felt the need for another.

Mike I lean towards my 220. It has good balance and it will get the job done nicely.
I hope all is well over the big lake.
As always Mike it is good to see you.

Jeff you are not challenged, I think you are a bit like myself, we just stay at it till we figure it out.
Right now I am on a spoke shave kick, and its a bit of a learning curve.

Thanks for the videos, especially the Stanley 71 blade comparison. I have a 71, but need irons. Guess I’ll go to Lee Valley.
Thanks

good to see you posting again Dave :-)

I Know I have a few blockplanes myself and can see the benefit of have one of the tiny blockplanes
and one loike the sice of 9½ as well as the big 130 beside the different in the angle attack the woods
but what is realy the point of having 20 different or more blockplanes avable in the toolbox ready for use

I know how it is about the normal bench planes 1-8 etc. have one that have the right sice for the job
is it the same with blockplanes ….. from what I see many of them is very close in sice

one thing about your video´s I have noticed …. is that loud noice that desturbing alot
when trying to enjoy a good moovie :-)

take care
Dennis

Looks like you’ve been piddling around… sharpening… and playing with Joinery.

I never of a Whale Tail joint either… I think I prefer the Bird. LOL

Nice videos…

Thank you.
