    Well Bill, since the "boss" brought your donuts first, looks like your turn in the jet got moved out.

    Congrats Mr. Schnooge and welcome to the club!
    Just so you know new members bring donuts to the next meeting...
    Oh, and you don't get to use the limo or company jet until you do.

    Grandpadave52 got a reaction from FlGatorwood in No 51. Shoot Board Plane (Lie Nielsen)   
    Well, you showed me literally this is no longer a mythical plane but a real life addition to the Morris family. Beautiful tool. As you noted, the first thing I noticed was the thickness of the iron and chip breaker. Premium touch. It also appears the finish is modern day, actual japanning versus paint? True to tradition and testament of quality and detail, Made In USA, No 51 and Lie-Nielsen cast into the body as maker's marks puts the reputation on the line; intended to be an heirloom quality tool.
     
    Happy for you John...just for grins, print out this thread, place in a zip lock bag and keep in the box with the plane as it begins into the next 100 years. Hopefully, someone will appreciate it's beginning and journey like we all do today. Think of the stories it could tell in 100 years...
     
    Thanks for sharing your "tool gloat." It is gloat worthy.

    I'll encourage you to drop by this forum and start a thread allowing others to properly greet you as well.
     
    BTW, how's the weather down in Perth right now? I've seen it's been a very hot summer there?
     
    @John Morris...sorry "chief" didn't mean to hi-jack your thread but since we're waiting to see that "mythical" new plane, wanted to keep the thread active.

    Is that wrong? Besides, my hands get cold when I take my gloves off.
    OK, I probably should know better right? I know, not on the sharp ends.

    That is just plane cool John. Of course this is all hypothetical until we see it in your shop.

    Use a little mineral oil in the holes and wipe some on the on the tubes and the screw shaft. For the actual screw threads, I'd lube with paraffin.

    Geeze Herb...glad it was not worse...certainly serious enough for sure. That blade could have sent fragments flying into your face or an eye. It's got me re-thinking my plastic pushers now...some are more of a "nylon" type so shouldn't explode, but IDK if heat generated.
     
    Still, happy to know you're on the mends...thanks for sharing the story as a reminder to us all. I guess it's better to Mis Hap than Mis Fingers... Take care of yourself while the healing continues.

    I liked my old one I bought used 40+ years ago so well, I bought another one just like it over 10 years ago plus have an old B&D 10" I bought for $20 8 or 9 y/o. It's missing the table; wish it had come with round-tuits The old Craftsman's work great for wide cross cuts. My 10" Compound Miter Saw was purchased before reasonably affordable SLCM's were on the market.

    Great to see you have the lathe still and hopefully get some time to use. Didn't your Uncle make you a steady rest before he became ill? Seems I recall he made some very unique tooling for your woodshop?
    @HandyDan, @Cliff and @Fastback (been a while since he posted) will be great SME resources when you get ready to use it Bob. Probably others too, but these three came immediately to my mind.
