  1. There was a tub brought home from Fred's get together up by Wapak, OH.....had, among other things, about 7 block planes....well...finally got the last of the 7 rehabbed. The "Before" looks ( Hide yer eyes, Mabel!) Uuummmm.. Coyote What? Had newspaper stuck to the sole... At the start of the Six Million Dollar Man TV show...they talked about how they could "rebuild him" We also have the Tech to do this...and send this back to 1955....no Delorian needed... A selection of wire wheels...some big.. Some not so big.. Some d
  2. I had a little fun in the shop this morning. Soon I'll be firing up some chairs to build, and right now I am kind of jigging up and tooling up for this big project. Besides the jigs my son and I have been working on, today I got in the shop and made one complete mallet, and I have a couple more in the wings that need to be made as well. Before I took these images I had already made my layout lines and cut the mallet handle slots on my table saw. I simply set my table saw t-slot miter to 4 degrees and cut the slots in from one side then I set it at 4 degrees the other way and cut the other
  3. Got this in the mail today, luck of the draw in the lottery from our Annual Fundraiser. Not being a hand plane guy for a long time I confess I only have ever had a cheap HF special. Never had an interest till I returned from Iraq but the pins in my wrist really did not like the activity of planning. Late last year I met a customer that also had same problem and he gave me a hands on tutorial of the ins and outs of holding the plane so it doesn't aggravate my injury. Okay, so I tried it at home and have been playing with the thing getting it tuned in and all. It makes nice ribbons, which I
  4. Not enough lumber to start another project....might as well keep going with the rehab stuff.... 5 planes...some parts were cleaned up, and given a new coat of paint. Threaded items were cleaned off, and oiled up. Decided to work on the red plane Sole is now as flat as I am going to get it. Like the hanger hole This was the easy one...we also have the "Bad".. And the "Ugly"...to go along with the "Good" Yeah....Ok, iron was flattened on the back, honed to 25 degrees and 2,000 grit....then stropped. putthe plane back together So
  5. Behind getting the preliminary pictures posted. During the Covered Bridge Festival I managed to rescue these treasures from the scrap heap. Last thing I needed was another block plane or pieces parts BUT... Top is a Stanley Defiance pattern/model-maker block plane; almost a clone of the Stanley 102. I suspect this is one of the last ones made which was mid 1952. Lower left, remnants of a Stanley 220; middle, remnants of another Stanley similar to the 220 but a tad shorter. Far right, Craftsman 619.3704, adjustable throat. Soles need some work...In-process on the Defiance & Craf

    Back Slats

    From the album: Shaker Furniture

    Once shaped each back slat separately I then ganged them up and did a few more passes with my shave and block plane, to get them all to even height and shape.
  7. Marked out where I did NOT want rounded over ( in theory, best laid battle plan?) I wasn't to go past that line on the long sides. Short sides I could plane all day long.. Main tool for this sort of thing was just a block plane. Wasn't trying for a perfect half circle, just enough to "break" the edges. I also planed a bit on the bottom of each part.. As there was a few rough spots. Got the two ends done. Tried to plane the longer ones And forgot what that pencil line was for...ooops. Jointed the edge, re-marked the line with a chisel. Needed a be
  8. From the album: Big Ash Mallet

    All the edges of the mallet were chamfered with my block plane and the handle of the mallet of was shaped using my draw knife and a card scraper.
  9. Or.......just drive over to the place, and pick it up? 20 minute drive, on a sunny morning? Went over to a little town called Mount Victory, OH ( lots of antique stores, if you can catch them opened)to pick up two items I won on FeeBay.. Maybe a 20 mile long drive. Farm house and barns were back a LONG (3/4 of a mile!) lane that had more potholes than the city of Bellefontaine. The two items I picked up? Stanley 9-1/2 and a spokeshave from Seymour Smith & Son Rather a bit newer one. got them both cleaned up.. The "model number"
  10. Bag it came in had a few holes in it. And what was inside was covered in bubble wrap.....with not a scratch on it.. Sears 107-37031 block plane. just a tad rusty....sides were unfinished and very rough. Sole wasn't too hateful... It did have a Cocobolo knob out in front.. Note the time stamp. Time to get this thing cleaned up, before Supper? Might be a bit better? The nickle plating was just flaking off, Cleaned the rest off. Those rough, painted sides were sanded down a bit. Wiped the grime off the knob. Sole is now cleaned up
  11. and very little got done. Brought two 1 x 10 pine boards to the shop, since they were stored against the wall of the house. Cut them to a length needed. Ripped one right down the middle. Ripped just over 5" out of the second board. Used a jointah plane to ease an edge or two And the chest now has a bottom. Screwed to the cleats along the outside edges. Center plank is just held by a pair of screws, one on each end. Had the box clamped to the bench for a little clean up Well I used this to clean up after a belt sander leveled things a bit. Then a block plane for so
  12. That came out of Southern Cal. Seems about five block planes were hiding in there... with a very OLD Stanley 9-1/2 leading the way. Took a few days to refurbish all five of these, two days actually. Things as simple as removing all the rust and grime. Have a H-F drill press set up for this sort of thing along with a few other brass wire brushes. Paint brush with a wee bit of 3in1 Oil on it, to scrub away the grime. Sharpened all but ONE iron. It was just too short to do. Set up a test track of White Oak. The old 9-1/2 decided not to do a test drive. Pin to advance the short
  13. 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 t
  14. Rust Hunting today, so not too much was done on the Pine Table. All the legs have eight "flats" four at the top, and four near the feet, mostly rough sawn, too. Clamped each leg up, and smoothed each flat, using the Little Guys The low angle one mostly. The square areas on each leg, like where an apron will go, were smoothed out. Do one side, release the vise, rotate, and repeat. The Knuckle cap was used a few times, as well. Nice change of pace from them big old Jack planes. A Wards #78 had snuck out of the Tool Chest, too. The one in back of th
