which left that wood bodied Jack plane...

 

Needed a blade/iron/cutter.....Well, I did have a chunk of decent iron handy..

Great save and re-purpose. I'd just seen a YOu-tube about re-using old lawn mower blades to make irons & chisels...hadn't thought of that...probably need to dig some out of the scrap iron pile???

Any maker name or city on the body anywhere? Is the handle dovetailed into the body? Gonna' be a pretty nice 'ole user plane when you get done with it.

Handle seems to have been dovetailed in...then a "plug" was added to lock it in place...with a nail into each.   May try to redo.

 

Iron is 1/4" thick!    Sparks were "forked"....first few grinds, I used oil to cool it down a bit....last one was with water.....now, I need to go out and buy a few new hacksaw blades....now have two hacksaw blades without any teeth.

 

Someone had "forged"  a round handle on the end....long ago.   May look at using the non-handle section....IF I can hammer it flat....has a bit of a curve to it...

 

Haven't found much of any markings on the body...yet.

IF I read the scratchings on the toe....I seem to see an O H I O   as in Ohio Tool Co.   out of Columbus, OH.  factory was washed away during the 1913 floods....they merged with Auburn Tool Co. after that.    I seem to recall a factory up river at Charleston, WV.....

You can use those slick hacksaw blades for small knives! Looks good when you put a deer antler on for handle!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
