  1. My trip to the Emerald City on Wednesday to get my haircut and other errands also resulted in a few detours. Even though my wife was home in bed suffering from her turn of 36 hours of demonic intestinal possession, I managed to get sidetracked. First stop after the ATM & haircut was at the "flea market warehouse." I've been going there for probably 12 or 13 years. Upon arriving I noted there were no cars in the parking spaces...further inspection, revealed a handwritten note taped to the door, Closed, Thank-you for your business over the years. Hmmm...that's a bummer...so I regrouped and hit a couple of Pawn Shops I hadn't been at for some time. The first (a regional chain) yielded a new layout so took me a while to scan the items. Several NIB H-F items priced at or up to 25% above what H-F sells the same item w/o a coupon and no free flashlight either. Most everything else was priced ridiculously high too...left there...on the the next shop. this one makes me a little nervous even during the daylight hours...a lot of stuff...most organized or should I say disorganized and displayed terrible and random at best. Again, most everything priced at or above new prices...looked at a few flat screen TV's for a second bedroom TV. Cheaper at Walmart with a warranty there...So, I walked back around opposite of my earlier path...in a locked glass display cabinet, not well lit area, on the bottom shelf, stacked with other non-valuable items, I noticed a couple of hand planes. One was a No 4 size, missing the lever cap, iron & chip breaker...nope don't need that. The other was a Stanley, #5...I asked the attendant if I could take a look at it...he retrieved the keys, unlocked the case and handed it to me...pretty decent looking plane...no price tag..."how much," I asked..."IDK" he said..."I'll ask"...after talking with the manager he came back $9.99...Me "Is that with tax?" Him, "No, 70 cents tax." Me, "I'll give you ten bucks for it", Him "OK." Handed him two $5's and headed to the door and my truck making sure no one was following me with an axe, sword or ball-bat. Anyways, the pictures you are about to see are actual footage taken in the safety of my drive-way on the tailgate of my truck. Warning, these pictures are of the plane after it was pulled from the bottom of that dark display case so if you have a weak stomach (like my wife and both grand-daughters before her did) you may want to grab a bucket lined with plastic shopping bags (like my wife and the grand-daughters were accustomed). I did stop and buy my wife some Ginger Ale before returning home. As always, thanks for looking. I'm still bummed out about the flea warehouse though. From everything I can surmise, it's a Type 16, circa 1933-1941 so Pre-WW II. It appears it is all original. The plane has been used over the years but not abused. The iron has been sharpened albeit not that well, but is reasonably sharp. The tote & knob are loose but intact, no cracks or damage other than the lacquer is flaking off. You can see the iron edge is straight but the bevel is not. Chip breaker lays flat across the iron. Nickle plating on the lever cap is a little pitted but not as bad I originally thought. Being the kidney shape hole helps to date it as a Type 16. The frog has some surface rust, but not bad at all. The iron adjusting bolt and knob are both brass. Thought I took a picture of them but guess not. It does have the frog adjusting screw. The "whale tail" lateral lever also helps date it. I do not see Stanley printed vertically. The iron appears consistent with a Type 16. So, another to my collection. I really didn't need another #5 but this is a first model post Sweetheart and being pre-war it needed a home. Looking forward rehabbing this one once it warms up enough so my tongue won't stick to it. So that's it...I'll let my wife know you asked if she's feeling better.
  2. Not too long ago, I bought a #5 Veritas jack plane from Lee Valley. I'm realizing now that I don't really know how to use this tool effectively. For example, I tried to flatten a board that was too wide to run across my jointer, so that I could run it through my planer, and it came out looking worse than when I started. What I am looking for is a comprehensive guide for someone who is a newby regarding bench or jack planes. Or just planes in general. I realize I have other options, such as ripping the board to fit my jointer, flattening it, and gluing it back together for the planer, or building a "shimming sled" to use on the planer, but I would also like to be able to use the plane to do this. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
  3. A very detailed site for doing a type study on Stanley Bench Planes.
  4. Had a large are on the new plane till without a plane on it. Decided to add a few more to the till. Used some more of the cap molding to make some dividers. Made sure to keep things a bit tight, no wiggle room allowed. Added a #3 and a #4 smooth plane, and a few block planes. There is a fourth block plane, but it hides in it's own box. A better view of the crowded till Yes, there is still a couple open spots. Trying to figure out where to place this Stanley SW #70 Whether to hang it on a hook on the side, or drill a hole to stick that "Billie Club" of a handle through? The wood bodied ones can reside in the tool chests. Need to find a better way to store these old drills, too Maybe build a rack of some sort?
