You lucky sob.

#18 block plane? Also, I know someone looking for moulding planes as well. Don’t know what his budget is though.

Yes for a brace… It’s a Henry Boker #8. And I actually got that tonight. Needs to be cleaned up before it goes out but if you’re interested then I can clean it up and shoot you a picture.

Shoot me a pm. I have access to a ton of moulding planes. I haven’t gotten to the bottom of the plane box so I’ll let you know if I’ve got an 18.

I’m fairly new to woodworking and handplanes in general, but I want to start using mortise and tenon joinery. I have been looking for a decent shoulder or rabbet plane to clean up the tenons, do you have any for sale? Also, any suggestions as to what I should be using or a particular plane best suited for cleaning up tenons are appreciated. Thanks, Rob.

RD87——

Shoulder planes work well (sharp ones). Router planes are nice to use (my favorite method) on tenons rabbet planes really excel at rabbets you can you use them to cut down a tenon but tear out is always an issue to watch for. You really should have sharp paring chisels good marking gauges a good marking knife and a really good carcass or tenon crosscut and rip cut back saw. I do have a rabbet plane and it’s available. You are going to want to have a basic set of tools to do hand tool woodworking if that’s the route you choose I personally enjoy it more than power tools and it’s cheaper to get started and learn with hand tools. Pm me and I’ll see if I can help you out.

Picked up a couple of dovetail saws but they are staying here. Gotta keep some of the goodies. There is a plough plane and 20-30 blades for it back at the barn that are decent but I have to schedule a trip with the owner to go back. He said I could pick up whatever I wanted from him whenever as long as I give him notice. So I should have that stuff in a couple of weeks.

Bill that little monster took all day but….... I’m good with that love it. Love these old things when they clean up like this. I’ll be sad when the right offer is made and it’s gone. But hey another hunt will bring another beauty along for me to slave over!!!! Labor of love!
