  1. My Very First Veritas

    So since the weather outside is NOT delightful with 6" +/- of snow AND sub-zero temperatures back to my picture archives for some 2017 picks... During one of my visits earlier this year at the Flea Market "Warehouse" as I was foraging through some totes, I ran across this...since it had Veritas on it, no brainer, I had to have it even though I was clueless at the time exactly what it was...BUT it was clearly marked Veritas...anyway you get the point, right? Any guesses assuming you didn't cheat looking at the tags? In the same bin was this 1/2" shank x 1/2" dia., 2 flute pattern bit...mainly flash surface rust Bottom view...seen one, got one? Cutter has some barnacles on it and some pitting, BUT it's a Veritas. I did get the rust cleaned off everything before winter set in but no further... Stay tuned next Spring (78d 9h 8m 01sec) for the final result Figure it out yet? Keep scrolling if you're still awake... So, all three items that day I spent a total of $3.25 with tax...makes each item at approximately $1.0833333333...guess I didn't over pay? No doubt you guessed a Veritas Invisible Nail "Plane" A few months back Veritas still had a picture and description of the tool in the on-line catalog but as NLA. Used to hide nails in molding & trim work. Obviously before 'super-glue" Last selling price was $19.99. I did find THIS PDF instruction sheet still available from Lee Valley...Thanks for playing along. Now back to your regularly scheduled Sunday afternoon nap.
  2. Early Christmas

    The guy in the brown truck just dropped of an early Christmas gift from me to me. It's a Stanley Sweetheart #62. A low angle jack plane. Destined for shooting board duty, among other things. Ain't she a beauty? The wife's gift is in transit. Thought about getting a plane for her, too. Settled on a birthstone ring. Probably a good thing.

  4. Little Giant

    Dug out this little plane, and decided to clean it up. . It came with that little paper wrapper to hold the cutter/iron.. Yep, a razor blade. Might be a little rough doing any sort of "back bevel" I cleaned up the sole.. Was a bit hard to tell IF I got it flat....cleaned up the cap iron, as well.. Didn't find any rust, though. Might be a little hard make sure both it and the bed for the cutter mate up. Not a lot of parts It did make a few shaving. Has two openings, but not much to hold onto, I can also cut like a scraper plane.. Hardest part is NOT slicing a fingertip, trying to use this "Little Giant" plane. I hear there was another type of these planes, too....just haven't found one, yet.. Maybe L-N will make one out of Bronze?
  5. A find

    Been working antique stores on this trip and nothing I did not have or at a price I wanted to pay , til today. Found a plough plane with great pastina all original . Only a chip out on top the tote. Paid 40 and felt good as this may be a $120 plus item.
  6. Help with ID

    I bought that box of planes from Craig's List and want to give some of them away as gifts. The first one is a molding plane and it has "J. Webber" stamped into the end of the body. Anyone have an idea when it might have been made? Wanted to provide a little info to the recipient
  7. Buck Brothers

    Picked up an old Buck Brothers hand plane yesterday for $15.00. It looks to be in good shape. It needs cleaning up and the blade sharpened. The part that moves the blade toward the front, not the nut that advances the blade, but the part that has two screws under the blade looks like it should be moved forward some. Other than that, it seems to be a good one. Did I pay too much for it? I don't believe I have ever seen one made by them before. Any comments?
  8. $300 is a lot of money

  9. Patriot Picking - Stanley No 45

    It has been a while since I was out Patriot Picking, but Tuesday, my wife and I made it down to a flea market and I ran up on this Stanley No 45 in the Metal Box. I currently have one with an 1890's patent date in the wooden box and got to looking at this one and it spoke to me so I had to take it home. It looks like it had everything in the box with the wooden holder for the blades along with several other blades laying loose in the box. The box was in good condition and the lid fits nice and tight. It has been used, but doesn't appear to be abused. I am looking forward to cleaning this one up. It has a patent day of July 09, 1901. A nice find and look forward to getting it going.
  10. Recycled 2x4s?

    Whew, working up a sweat now.... Hauled those 6 pieces of 2x4 down to the shop. Sat the three longer ones aside, for now.....at least until after a break.... The three shorter ones, well, they had a date with the bandsaw. I set up the resaw jig, just enough to peel off the edges past the rounded over stuff.. Maybe a 1/4"? Once all six edges were trimmed, a small plane was landed.. Ohio Tool Co. # 0-7 Jointer plane. I wanted the edges straight, free of sawmarks, and as square to the sides as I could get them.. Imagine walking around in a pile of this stuff.. Once all three boards were jointed along the sawn edges, I dug up a 3/4" thick piece of scrap. A pair of lines down the center of one edge marked a center line to saw. Reset the jig to the center of the two marks. recheck the bandsaw's table for square to the blade. Since I had to raise the saw guide a bit. Ran the three through, trying to stay centered... After a LONG break, I'll come back and plane the saw marks off. Might need that old jointer plane, again. 3 boards almost done, three to go.. Handsome critters, ain't they. hope to have them all S4S by this weekend. Might need a new blade in the bandsaw... Grandson will be here this weekend, I'll have him haul all them shavings out to the old garden plot. Not sure what I'll build out of these...yet. I also have a pile of other Pine scraps......stay tuned.
  11. Clock is ticking

    Picked this this afternoon... Hey,,for $5, might as well try... At first glance, you'd think it was a Stanley..... Not! Made in India, an Anant A4, Stanley knock-off. A-yep, this will take awhile..... Strange place to stick a label.....There IS a bolt down in that hole...the wrong one of course. As soon as I can rustle up some GOOD batteries for the camera, I'll go and open the Rehab Shop......will TRY to be done by suppertime. Will post results here...do you want a "blow by blow" account, or just the final results?
  12. Did a walk-about today..

    And walked downtown. I was just going to see IF anything was "new" at the usual place.....nope, same old,same old. Walked back out, spotted a second store across the street....it was OPEN? Turns out she is only open on Tuesdays, 12 - 4...my lucky day.... Asked about old tools....was shown a few sitting around....."How much for that rusty little thing?" At first, she wanted $7......nah....then it was down to $5......Ok, I gave her a dollar to hold the "prize" until I could get back...3 blocks each way, twice....whew. next time I'll DRIVE down there. Paid her the $4 she needed, and walked home with this "treasure" Handsome devil, ain't he? 1951 Dunlap, made by Sargent for Sears. A small chip off the corner..meh.. Not exactly sure what colour the handles are supposed to be.....decided to rest up a bit, before the Rehab Shop could open... Insides are a bit cleaner, even the spider stuff is gone. Colour is actually black, camera causing the blue tint.. The sole did take awhile, as did the sides.. Hardware cleaned up...nasty finish on the handles has been wire wheeled off.. Yep, those are the bolts for the handles....handles were a tad loose, so I buzzed about 3 threads off the ends of the bolts. Chipbreaker needed a bit of work t mate to the now flatten back of the iron. Honed the iron to 400 grit, called it good enough.. Gave the plane a test drive after it was put back together....and...here we go... rear view.. Looks a tad bit more like a plane? Works like one, too.. Might just do, for a 66 year old plane. Plane is a #3 size.
  13. It has Been a bit since I have popped up here with a project. Two teens playing basketball will really limit shop time so I have been pecking away at at a project here and there this winter. Thought I would share a little about this old jointer project. I bought this one at auction for a whopping 5 bucks! It needed a little TLC but was in overall decent shape so I bought it home. The tote was loose, there was some checking on the ends, and it had evidence of minor bug infestation. I started by trying to remove the tote. Sadly, the tote split during removal and confirmed my suspicions about the insects so I chiseled out the remaining pieces of the tote and headed to the house with the body. I cleared the plan with the significant other and baked the body at 200 degrees for several hours. That should slow the critters down a little bit! The only problem with the oven was that the checking increased in width a bit with the heat and caused a bit of twist in the body. I mixed some 2 part epoxy and thinned it a bit with a few seconds in the microwave. I ran the epoxy into the checking to hopefully stabilize them. I also filled the bore holes with super glue. The body was then passed over my 8 inch jointer with a couple light passes to true it up. The iron and chip breaker did 36 hours in vinegar during this time, followed by wire brushing and sharpening. The wedge was in good shape overall so I just cleaned it up a bit. I made a new tote from Walnut as it was stock I had that was thick enough to fit the bill. I increased the height of the tote a bit for my big hands. I am not totally pleased with the results on the tote as it nearly interferes with the iron but it will work, I believe. I cleaned the body a bit more than usual and brought out the sandpaper to finish the job. I did this to clean up the epoxy remnants and smooth out the remaining splinters. I included the only before shot I had where it is roughly in the middle of the shot. I generally prefer the iron planes but have been wanting a few all wood models in my kit. This one was a little more work than planned. They always are!
  14. A work in progress, side no. 2

    Other WIP was getting a bit long-winded, so might as well do one about the other side of the dresser build. First, a bit of glue up had to go on.. each panel was "popped out", a bead of glue run around on the rebates. Panel back in, and nailed down. I also trimmed the top of the corner posts flush with the top rail.. was going to handsaw this....decided the cordless saw was quicker....Set this mess aside, and clear the deck... The shiny end? I ran a plane around, to level the top a bit, was getting a might beat up, lately. Time to process six parts.... Ok, they DO need a bit of work. Found the shortest one, and marked the rest to match. Hauled each around to the mitre box, and trimmed the ends, making sure I was cutting the worst end, of course. Got these all nice and trimmed up.. Lots of saw marks on the sides....some rails were thicker, or wider than the others..we have ways... I also set a combo square to the distance needed. Wider ones were planed down to match the others, same with the thicker ones, finally got this stack done.. I think I can live with that. Crosscut a 2x4 into a pair of corner posts..... But they needed resawn down a bit. Set up the jig on the bandsaw to cut for a width of 3" strong. Leaves a little for the planes. Ran into a problem or two... Mitre Box was in the way. Moved bandsaw a bit forward. Blade stopped dead in it's tracks.....Had to tear things down, clean everything out. Left the cover off, and started the saw...cool block was hanging up, moved it aside. Lots of pine gunk on the saw blade. Started the saw up, and use the end of a file to scrape the gunk off the blade. Did not get near the teeth, though. Put things back together, re-set the jig Finally got both resawn down to 1" thick, by 3" wide. And, of course, ONE had to start bowing....clamped the two together, hoping the bow will settle down. Stash these aside for now.. As I needed the bench for other chores.... I can get these all molded up....next time I go to the shop...to be continued...
  15. Setting up a Stanley 45

    Since I intend to use this plane a lot on the Dresser project coming up, I might as well get it set up for the first job it will be doing. There is one HUGE cutter in the box of cutters, called a sash cutter. At one time, it would cut the sash moldings for windows. This time around, it will set up to install plywood panels into the sides of a dresser. Will be running the plane along the edge of a 4/4 thick board....molded edge out, rebate in. So, I laid out some parts... Screwdriver is a Millers Falls stand-in, until I find the Stanley ones. I thought I picked the right length rods. You can see the cutter there in the middle. That bolt thingy is a depth stop for the cutter. Ok, put a few parts together.. The one with the handle is called the Main Stock. The cutters cut with the bevel down. Short rods are installed, so the next part can be installed.. Called the Sliding stock. The cutter did have a slight bow to it, had to press a bit to install the sliding stock into place. I want the edge of the stock to sit right behind the lowest point of the cutter, to support it on the end. Which is also where the molding part stops. then tried to install the fence stock.. it will be close...might have to get the long rods and install them. I 'ducked" the fence under the cutter, as I want the molding right on the edge. Some of the other jobs this plane will get used for....a groove for drawer bottoms to sit in. A dado for the drawer backs to sit in. And about any other little job I can think off. Now, IF it could only do 1/2 blind dovetails....oh well. i'll post a few shots of this set up in action, as soon as the lumber gets here. Stay tuned..
  16. Sharpening a plane iron

    I have learned just enough to be dangerous. I watched several of Paul Sellers' videos on sharpening various things. I had no idea that it is advisable if not a must to initialize brand new planes and chisels. I have several of my chisels and both of my planes shining like a mirror and have a fair amount of razor burn on my arm from testing the sharpness. They are SHARP. My question is this. I think I understood Mr. Sellers to have said initialize at 25* and then sharpen at 30*. Why? Also, I took apart one of my Lowes block planes (don't make fun of me) and I am not sure if the bevel was up or down. Does it matter? If so, how do I figure out which way it goes?
  17. That Stanley #45

    In response to a few questions about that little plane....Last spring I went to a little get together down in Vicksburg,MS. Wound up bringing home a Type 20 Stanley 45. Made in Roxton Pond,QUE, Canada. The box Miss Doe mailed it in contained the plane in it's own wooden case. twas a wee bit rusty. The USPS seemed to have tossed the package around on it's way to MS. William tried to repair the damage to the wooden case.....was a bit too far gone. Miss Doe said the plane was mine, as long as I brought it back to life. I even might a new case for it, and cleaned the rustiness away...a before? Yeah... So, I set out to copy this box based on the old cracked and broken thing.. Got fairly close. The insides matched what Stanley had placed in there. I couldn't find the right latch, though. I guess this will just have to do When I made new labels...I messed up. The ones I copied were for the New Britain Stanleys. Old Box had the Roxton Pond label. Compare with the old label. Ok time to open this box up? Tight fit in there. I have to tear it down to get it all back in the box. I did go out and buy a depth stop for the slitter.... But the other two stops came with the plane. So, what is all the stuff below this? The screwdriver is a millers Falls, closest I could get to a Stanley one. Extra cutters, both the long and short rods. If you look up near the end of the screwdriver, there is a very small cutter, so small you use only the main body with it. I think it is a 1/8" cutter? Get some of the this stuff out of the way.. A spare nicker. That pointy cutter is the so-called slitter. And the cutter I modified. Speaking of cutters.. As in the oEM box, there are two rows of cutters. Set into dados into the sides of the box. The BIG wide cutter is to make sash parts for a window. A better look at the cutters? Back row is all straight edged cutters. Front row is the "bead" cutters, that sash cutter, and two match cutters ( 3/16" and 1/4")...... This is one heavy box....I bought the wood and hardware for the box, the extra cutters as well. Most of the rest came from Vicksburg. Not too bad a deal?

  19. Had a case of gap-osis between the pages. After I finally got ALL the hinges installed....I clamped the box hinge side down in the end vise. I started out with a back saw, and then a crosscut saw. Saw was started in one of the gaps, and then I worked my way along. Each Gap was sawn the same way. Had to then open the box up, and finish things smooth with a plane, and a sander.....of course, some dummy forgot to bring the camera along......then had MORE errands to do... Finally was able to sneak back down to the shop..... Added dust covers on each end. Will order a bag of latches this weekend, too. One corner is bad...meh, adds character. Like how the gaps have go away, almost? Open the lid....then Turn a page. Need to clean these out...then.. All opened up. Yep, this one is facing the other way....meh. Got out the "Honey Jar" and got it all mixed up....had a test to do.. Trying to decide IF I like it this flavour....or maybe a bit redder? Depends on the lighting.. bTW: I finally took a tape measure to this box.....side to side= 11-3/16", front to back=8-5/8", height=5-9/16"......not too bad, for not having a written plan. Will try to order a bag of latches this weekend. I figure I can final sand, clean out, and add a finish, THEN add the latches......still working on a handle of some sort......this will be stacked with the rest of the wood boxes in the shop. May have to build a cabinet to hold them all....someday. Might even find some labels to attach to the box, when everything is done? Stay tuned..
  20. Patriot Picking - Rust rust rust

    I had a picker friend of mine contact me about some planes he picked. Most of it is rust, but that is good. We did a little trading and I got the iron planes and parts and a few wooden planes. More projects! I'm going to have to fire up the electrolysis system.
  21. Plane Iron rehab

    Trying to type this and eat supper ( my own cooking) at the same time....so, here goes. been having a bit of trouble with one of the planes.. As the lateral lever kept going to the side as I used the plane, just to get an even shaving... Leaning way to one side. Was having trouble with stuff getting jambed up, as well. Took the plane apart.. Look like a mismatch going on. Took things apart.. Back has a hollow to it. Chipbreaker has burrs.. Edge of the iron was a little out of square, too. Set up the first tool I use for this,, Have the platten set to about 25 degrees or so. I also had a big bowl of water handy Hollow grind a bit until the square was "happy".. I had cleaned up the parts with that wire cup on the drill press. I used the MK1 jig to set the bevel at 25 degrees. The sander? Well, I run it to sand out the hollow grind, and make sure the bevel is what I want. I can also flatten the back of the iron, Fingertips tell me when the steel is getting too hot, then a dunk into the water. Once the bevel looks even, I can put away the sander, time for one of these.. Squiggle of 3in1 oil. Stone is a 600 grit medium India stone. Iron is left in the honing guide. Moosh the iron around a while, until the grinder/sander marks are gone. Then onto these.. I found out that IF there is a layer of oil still on the stone, the sandpaper will "stick" there, and not move around. Went through the 1000 grit, and the 2000 grits. I spent as much time on the bevel as on the back. Getting both polished up.. The corners have a slight radius, to keep them from digging in. The leather sitting there is an old work belt, now serving time as a strop. Just bare leather, maybe a touch of oil. Time to put the plane back together, and do a test run.. Much better? The coils sitting there are called Moxxon TP. The lateral lever? A little more centered. I think this one is about ready to go back to work? Now, as for this old plane... That "boat hull" of a body has a big curve to it. Only the area around the mouth is in contact. I can push down either on the front end, or the stern. Sooo, next time, I will have to flatten this sole.. Yep, it is that ugly, even the camera didn't want to look at it. next time I get to the shop, a tune up will happen to this old Ohio Tool Co. 035 Razee.....yep, it do have a tapered iron...
  22. Sargent Plane Type Study

    A great resource for doing a type study on Sargent Planes.
  23. hand planing plywood edges

    I understand it is not a good idea to use a plane on the edges of plywood because of the glue. My question: will doing so damage the plane in any way other than dulling the iron? If this is the only problem, a few minutes with the WorkSharp 3K will clear that up. Sometimes,when fitting small pieces, it is necessary to remove minute amounts, impractical or even dangerous with a table saw. Seems like a hand plane would be the ideal tool for such a job.
  24. First of all, I would like to thank a fellow member on Routerforum.com for giving me the opportunity to acquire this beauty and give it a new home! He purchased this plane, new, a couple of decades ago and never used it. There are probably many of you who don't know, that, I like using hand planes. I find and refurbish them, and I have rescued dozens from garage sales and flea markets. I have several boxes of cleaned up and still in the rough planes, but the one that has consistently eluded me was a #7 (and a #8 if one ever will present itself). Most of the ones, that I found, were rusted, beat-up junk that were overpriced. When the member offered a NIB #7C, I knew that I couldn't pass it up. Well, it arrived on my doorstep today, well pack, and calling to me to let it out of the box. Well, I thought that I would share this beauty with the forum. So, without further ado, meet my brand new Stanley Bailey #7C (corrugated sole) plane. So, where does this hunk of iron fit in? Well some pictures of its new home. You'll notice the empty spots that were made just for a #7 and maybe one day a #8. From right to left #3, #4, #5-1/4, #5C, #6, and now a #7C, two molding planes, a ca. 1840 wood plane, and finally my ca. 1880 Keen Kutter wood plane. These are all of my "user" planes. I have several others that I use, but these are my go to ones. Hope you guys enjoyed this. Bill
