On another site, there was a thread about wanting to use a #8 Jointer plane....in making boxes and trays... I made up a little show & tell.....the OP has a #62 ( I think) and was wanting to buy a #8. A #5 Jack plane is roughly the same size as a #62, so.. In my case, this would be the Millers Falls #14 Jack plane sitting beside my Stanley #8.....bit of a size difference? Jack has a 2" wide iron, the #8 has a 2-5/8" wide cutter...Hmmm, maybe if we try a Jumbo Jack instead? An inch or so longer, and the cutter is a 2-3/8" wide....rather an "overweight" Jack plane? So, what would be a little easier to use than the #8? Couple of inches shorter...about a pound or so lighter, and has a 2-3/8" wide cutter..Stanley No. 7c, Type 9 See a difference? Which would YOU want to push around all day long? Well, there IS a shorter version out there.. Stanley called it a small jointer, a Stanley No.6c, type 10....about 6" shorter than the #8, and has a 2-3/8" wide iron... All three are indeed "Jointers" Which would you want to push around all day long....Me..I'd rather push the "Spare Tire" around.. 2 patent date, low knob Stanley #4.....tape is for a better grip. Sweaty hands, after a LONG day, I need the grip. That concludes the Show & Tell, for today...any questions?
All the sanding dust had to go somewhere, but why on my planes? After I finished a glue up, I gave a few a wipe down.. Yep, that is a clothes dryer back there, and they are sitting on a hamper. I have to share space with the Laundry room. Front to rear: Ohio Tool Co. No. 0-7 ( smooth sole) and a pair of Stanley No. 7c, type 9 jointers. The one in back has "loaner" handles, until I can afford the Rosewood ones. The other jointer in the shop.. Is what Stanley called a Small Jointer.....No.6c, type 10. Lot of weight here, so I had better put them away, until needed. The 0-7 is marked on the toe of the plane, the rest have theirs on the rear porch.. I seem to recall Ohio using mahogany for their handles, Stanley at this time was using Rosewood. Just a look at the shop's cordless jointers...
