  1. This is a highly decorated item and the last of the unusual I saw on my trip.
  2. Another antique store find. This time I know what it is and will post the answer in 7 days or there about . it is almost 3 feet long. Made of solid metal with wooden scales on handle.
  3. My next plane will probably be a smoothing plane, not right away, but hopefully not too far in the future. I was looking at the Lie-Nielsen web site, and I noticed that their No. 4 Smoothing Plane is offered in both a bronze and an iron body version. The bronze was $50 more. So is there any advantage to bronze? And if so, is that advantage of any significance to a hobbyist like me?
  4. Picked this up recently. It seemed to be in pretty decent shape although i haven't completely cleaned or tried to shave with it. Had a couple of squares, but waiting for Dave to return.
  5. One of the "treasures" brought home from Wapak.. I've already rehabbed the Defiance plane, and cleaned the drills up...which left that wood bodied Jack plane... Needed a blade/iron/cutter.....Well, I did have a chunk of decent iron handy.. This is the half that is "leftover"...went back as far as this was flat....used the grinder to cut a deep groove.. Because this chunk of steel was laughing at my hacksaws...got as deep as I could, then snapped the "good" part off. Beginning to think someone had re-worked an old lawnmower blade. More grinding.....beltsander......more grinding...wound up with an almost flat "back" and a cambered bevel... 2" wide iron....could have been a tad wider. Will work on the sharpening later... Had to trim the wedge a bit....will refine the cut later. It was sticking up further than the iron was. Finish the sharpening, may see about tightening the handle a bit...finish the wedge a bit..will do for now. May try to find out how thick the iron is..... Stay tuned....
  6. Hi Everyone This is a Custom Beer Tap Handle of the Hamilton Crest I just completed. Overall dimensions are 8 1/2" tall x 3.75" wide The Intarsia consists of 60 pieces from 9 different woods. The biggest challenge on this project (besides working with lots of little pieces) was bending the 2 ebony bands. I cut the ebony into 3/16" x 1/16" strips then using a woodburning iron heated the strips on the shaft of the iron and formed the circular shapes until they fit. Great trick if you need to make curved shapes. The dime shows the scale of the pieces. Challenging little project
  7. Seems a #3 sized Dunlap was in bad need of a resharpening. Right down to regrinding a new edge. What is so special about this little plane? Well, it has a metric width iron from West Germany. The bed for it is called a York Pitch because the angle is about 50-55 degrees, instead of the normal 45 degrees. Grinder and a 1" wide beltsander to refine the bevel, somewhere around 25 degrees or so. Then a pair of oil stones, one a "Medium India 600 grit" and one was about 1K grit Doing these free-handed nowadays, too. Then some 1K and 2.5K grit sandpaper. Clean and BLO the wood parts. Set them aside while I get out an old belt Used Dry, at that. Maybe 20 strokes on the bevel and the now polished back. Worked on the chip breaker, as well. Now has zero gaps between the chipbreaker and the back of the iron. Put the parts back together, and set up some scrap to test the edge a bit Not too bad? Left a shiny edge on the Cherry scrap. As for that grinder? I have a jig attached to the finer wheel I can set it to the angle that matches the bevel, tighten it in place, and grind away. All of the above took MAYBE 15 minutes, plus a little "play time" as well. Might have this figured out?
