    Time to put it away

    Last of the grooves, and tongues are done...time to put this old plane away... Don't quite fit? Well, IF I tear it down a bit, and start stacking parts.. Put the cutters back into the two slots..straight cutters in the back row. There is a 3/16" Match cutter, a sash cutter, a 1/4" match cutter, and a whole herd of bead cutters.. The Support Staff. Fence, sliding stock, cam, and both sets of rods. spare spurs, screwdrivers, and a couple extra cutters. One of the cutters is too small to stash in with the rest of the straight cutters. Then I can stash the main event.. Has to slip in here, just so...IF I want the next item... Mainly, close the lid, and latch it shut. Until needed again. Keeps it dust free.

    Plane rehab

    Ok....downtime IN the shop....taking a short vacation from woodworking projects, for now. Bench was cleared off, planed flat Even a coat of shellac on the bare wood. The plane lying on the bench came from the Wapak Gathering....came home in a pink plastic tub. i thought maybe I could clean it up a bit...and see IF I can make it a little bit better than a junker plane. "Whale Tail" Stanley Defiance. Made between 1955 and 1962....when Stanley crimped the lateral lever down tighter.. Named because it looks like the south end of a north bound whale. Rear handle....may see about rounding it over a little bit better. Hmmm, yeah...need to clean under the hood, looks like? Get the frog to seat better. Flatten the face of the frog, so the iron fits better...the "hood"? Clean the lever cap from this plane, and a spare cap I had on hand. Stanley on the right, Millers Falls Mohawk-Shelburne on the left. Stanley had a big chip-out missing along the leading edge..dead-center....it will still work, but..I also ground things back to remove the chip-out....reason the Millers falls one MIGHT get used? Because it has that piece of spring steel. Keeps the lever from digging into the chipbreaker. The Stanley one never had it, made for a cheaper part..but also a looser fit.. Somehow, I don't think this is the OEM bolt.....I don't had the correct one in the spares box....will work on this thing.. And work on this side, as well...grinder was fired up, again.. The reason these bolts have a flat head? There is a "well" in the frog, where the bolt usually sits...not a whole lot of room in there, either. Too tall of a bolt, and the iron can rock side to side. As for the other side.. Ground flush. These bolts protrude up under the lever cap....again, too tall and things can rock and wiggle.... Stamped as a Defiance, Made in USA. Will work on a sharpening, later... Have this piece of oak as a test track....mainly along the edge grain. I put the plane back together, using the freshly worked on parts...no sharpening was done, new lever cap was used. Set the test track into the vise, and gave the plane a test drive... Took a few tries...adjusted for depth, until it started to cut. It's a start....will be working on this Defiance tool, and another one.. Defiance 1-1/2" wide socket chisel....dead ringer for the Stanley version. About the bench top....had a wooden dog stuck in one of the dog holes...was unable to extract it, or even just drive it on through....so..I drill a new hole..a bit closer to the vise.. PEXTO No. 8012, 12" sweep, Samson chuck. Plane beside it? It is an older version of the Defiance planes, a #3 size. May try to get it working, as well. Drill got put back in the til.. There is a larger brace right next to it....a 14" sweep. Squares...a plough plane, and 3 spokeshaves...there is even a saw set in there.... Stay tuned...we'll see how that "Junker Plane" turns out.....

    A Plough Plane Reborn

    As part of the Dungeon Clean-up this year....the old plough plane was rehabbed back to life.....found broken, and discarded....new parts were made. New, better wedges were made. Cutter sharpened up. New, Maple handle was made. Skate was cleaned of rust. A new fence, made out of Ash to replace the broken Beech one. New wedges are Walnut. There is a screw to help secure the handle in place, as the old dovetail socket was worn away. Glued the handle in place, then added the #10 screw. Two other #10 screws to attach the fence to it's arms. Had to repair one arm...old screw had split the "boss" where it attaches to the arm. Wards #78 plane to make the rebate. Wedge to hold the cutter was beveled to allow the cutter to reach full depth of cut. It also deflecks the shavings out the right side of the plane. As there is no place for the shavings to go on this side.. far cry from what was dug out of the "trash"... Even the sole of the plane needed worked on....was worn crooked... As found.....iron plane is a Stanley #4. Plough plane does look a bit better, now....

    Lie Nielsen No. 51 Shooting Plane

    My next hand plane, I gotta have her. Been collecting Lie Nielsen's over the last 12 years, and it's time now to make a big jump for their No. 51 Shooting Plane. She is absolutely gorgeous. Still eating off the proceeds of my big stationary machinery sell off, and having a blast spending it! Hey, dad don't get this much money very often and I don't know when I'll have it again, it's my turn! No. 51 Shoot Board Plane The Lie-Nielsen Shoot Board Plane is based on the Stanley 51, which was made between 1909 and 1943 and sold with a companion metal shooting board. Our Shoot Board Plane will fit the original Stanley board, but can be used with any type of shooting board. Plans for simple shop-made shooting boards are included with the tool. The skew-set blade can be adjusted for lateral adjustment to allow for angled cuts, such as draft for pattern work. Read more...

    Miniature Rabbet Plane

    So there really is a reason they are called Rabbet planes. Found at Jim Bode Tools https://www.jimbodetools.com/collections/fine-braces-drills/products/3-4-inch-miniature-rabbit-rabbet-plane-by-paul-hamler-58078

    Ohio Tool Co. #81 Transitional Plane

    Yep, another rehab. This be a PIP of where this big guy is at right now Clamps are there to hold those tabs in lace while the super glue sets up. Top of the body has been cleaned off. Sides have had a plane work them back to almost new. At least the old cruddy finish is gone. Sole has been planed flat as i can get it. Not 100% flat, but good enough for this shop. Tote has seen a wire wheel to get most of the oil finish off, and some of the old paint splats. Tried to flatten the toe a bit, almost back to a level front porch. Might still turn a front Kanoobie... Wedge has been tuned up, cleaned up, and an oil finish is on it. Rest of the body has at least five coats, so far. Wood might be a tad dry? Body is 22" long, iron is 2-1/2" wide, about the same as a Stanley #7 iron bodied plane. Iron has been reground to get rid of a few nicks. Awaiting it's turn on the oil stones... Might not be too bad a plane...afterall?

    1" Infill Shoulder Plane

    From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    I have been blessed with a bounty of hand tools and wood these past few weeks, it's a long story, after returning from my latest trip, and after sorting through the tools, I found this infill plane among many other gems. It's a 1" Infill shoulder plane. At this time I cannot see any markings, the hand plane is ready to use now, the edge is excellent and the body is square and solid. I love this plane, and I'll use it. 7.5" long by 3" tall, heavy with a square sole to side for accurate registration. Can't wait to use it!

    Ohio Tool Co. #81 (Updated)

    Got the iron back to sharp Cuts nicely, but was hard to hold onto. Saw a place that does refurbs for a living, and they also had an #81.....with a tall knob. Hmmm, well, I can clean off the work bench (10 minute job right there) and drag out the wood lathe, again. Blank of spalted maple was in need of squaring one end, tried to hand saw that. Three different saws.....end was almost square. Fired up the lathe. Plan ( Plan? I don't need no stinking Plan) to turn two bench plane knobs. There was enough room between them to squeeze a block plane knob in there too. All sanded down, parted off, and ready to trim the ends smooth. Beltsander? Nah, it threw one knob across the shop! Ok, narrow belt-sander. Meh..... ONE bench plane knob turned out decently, the other ....not so decently. Drilled hole through all three. About the same results. One GOOD knob. Went and dug up a steel, slotted screw. Installed the Kanoobie on the front porch of the #81, and started coating it in oil well...not too bad. Looking more like a plane, now I did try this set up before the oil went on, Nice and easy to use now. Shavings flew out, even on Oak. Might just be a keeper

    Hand Tools - Use 'Em

    Hi, new to this forum. Have been working on restoring hand tools and developing skills for a couple of years. Thought you might be interested in a project from last year. These Eleven Grooved Boxes are made, with the exception of preparing the original stock, entirely with hand tools. A big Stanley miter box, planes 4, 5 1/4, 18, two 45s, and a round side 606. Love them all.

    My Dad's Plane

    I am trying to identify a plane I inherited from my Dad when he passed. The part on which the frog sits (is this called a boss?) is H shaped and has C 74 1/2 stamped on it. There is a 2 stamped in the base by the heel. A U is stamped on the frog on top and in the front, down close to the base. Made in USA in on the top of the base by the knob, and also on the iron. No markings on the cap iron. The sole is 14" long, with a 2" mouth. The only brass component appears to be the machine screw holding the tote to the base. The sole misses being square to the sides by maybe 1/32", but is flat along its' length, so if I am not using it on a shooting board, is this really an issue? I thought at first it might be an older Stanley, but my research indicated that the 74 was a floor plane, the only one they made for planing floors, with no mention of a 74 1/2, and actually nothing with a preceding C. Now I am thinking it is a cheaper brand that used a knock-off of the Stanley numbering system. Posting pictures now.
  11. Last weekend my wife and I celebrated our 41st anniversary and we did so by picking our way to Nashville and then a little more picking on the way home. I did take her out for a very nice dinner at Stone River Steak house in Franklin, TN so it wasn't all about picking and she likes it as much as I do. I didn't take pictures of her treasures, but she got quite a few deals. She like dishes and pottery. I found a variety of things a several different places along the way. So I found that Keen Kutter metal sign and most likely it is repo but it was a cool sign and I wanted to put it up in the shop. Tool signs are hard to find so I try to get them when I can. I also got the Screw and Bolt signs which are double sided. I ran across this one place that had a great collection of really nice tools. They were locked in a glass cabinet. I ask the person to unlock it and told her I was going to be looking in there for a while. She ask if she needed to get the mop to clean up the drool. I first got this nice Keen Kutter Sliding T Bevel square. It is metal and nickel plated. Just below the screw it has a patent date of Oct 29, 07 stamped. I also got this Lufkin No. 014 Caliper ruler. What I thought was really cool about it is the fact that they also put the Stanley number next to their number. Shows you how popular and big Stanley was even them. I have this same small caliper rule in the Stanley 136. I then pulled out this really nice Stanley No. 53 1/2 ruler. When I started college I wanted to be an Architect so this ruler was kind of neat to find. The No 53 1/2 was made from 1879 to 1942. The rule was beveled on the inside edges so the numbers would be close to the page. This ruler has the brass arched ends and brass joints and ends. The patina is really nice and it is very readable. I also saw this nice No. 66 1/2 boxwood ruler that was made from 1870 to 1957. What makes it special it is one of only three 3' four fold rulers to survive WW II. This one happens to be from the Sweet Heart era 1922 to 1935 so this one would have been Pre WW II. This one also had the brass arched ends. This one wasn't cleaned by someone. I have the Stanley No 36 Cast Iron level in the 18" and 12" and it was nice to find this one in the 6" size and all of the vials intact and working. Then I found this Stanley folding ruler with Green Ends. I had just been looking through one of my original Stanley catalogs a week earlier and saw this information on the Green End rulers. So when I saw this Stanley Green end folding ruler at a very cheap price in the cabinet I had to get it out and add to the collection. And then I found my real prize of this pick. I saw this really nice Stanley No. 98 and picked it up and checked it out. No cracks and the finish is in good condition. I had to include it, I just couldn't leave it there. They made these in right and left handed models. The No. 99 is the left side model. I am looking for one of those to add to the group and to make this complete by having a right and left model. This little plane was made from 1896 to 1942. This one appears to be a Type 1a which was made from 1905 to 1907. One of the things about this little plane is the knob is the same size and a perfect replacement if you need a knob for a Stanley No. 1 bench plane. The knob can be worth as much or more than the plane itself. So I have added a few more items to the latest display cabinet in the house. This is the ruler shelf. All of the catalogs are original catalogs and the oldest one is a Stanley 1914 catalog. So that was my anniversary weekend picking and we had the best time out with each other looking for those special treasures. Till next time.... Patriot Picking

    My Very First Veritas

    So since the weather outside is NOT delightful with 6" +/- of snow AND sub-zero temperatures back to my picture archives for some 2017 picks... During one of my visits earlier this year at the Flea Market "Warehouse" as I was foraging through some totes, I ran across this...since it had Veritas on it, no brainer, I had to have it even though I was clueless at the time exactly what it was...BUT it was clearly marked Veritas...anyway you get the point, right? Any guesses assuming you didn't cheat looking at the tags? In the same bin was this 1/2" shank x 1/2" dia., 2 flute pattern bit...mainly flash surface rust Bottom view...seen one, got one? Cutter has some barnacles on it and some pitting, BUT it's a Veritas. I did get the rust cleaned off everything before winter set in but no further... Stay tuned next Spring (78d 9h 8m 01sec) for the final result Figure it out yet? Keep scrolling if you're still awake... So, all three items that day I spent a total of $3.25 with tax...makes each item at approximately $1.0833333333...guess I didn't over pay? No doubt you guessed a Veritas Invisible Nail "Plane" A few months back Veritas still had a picture and description of the tool in the on-line catalog but as NLA. Used to hide nails in molding & trim work. Obviously before 'super-glue" Last selling price was $19.99. I did find THIS PDF instruction sheet still available from Lee Valley...Thanks for playing along. Now back to your regularly scheduled Sunday afternoon nap.

    Early Christmas

    The guy in the brown truck just dropped of an early Christmas gift from me to me. It's a Stanley Sweetheart #62. A low angle jack plane. Destined for shooting board duty, among other things. Ain't she a beauty? The wife's gift is in transit. Thought about getting a plane for her, too. Settled on a birthstone ring. Probably a good thing.

    Little Giant

    Dug out this little plane, and decided to clean it up. . It came with that little paper wrapper to hold the cutter/iron.. Yep, a razor blade. Might be a little rough doing any sort of "back bevel" I cleaned up the sole.. Was a bit hard to tell IF I got it flat....cleaned up the cap iron, as well.. Didn't find any rust, though. Might be a little hard make sure both it and the bed for the cutter mate up. Not a lot of parts It did make a few shaving. Has two openings, but not much to hold onto, I can also cut like a scraper plane.. Hardest part is NOT slicing a fingertip, trying to use this "Little Giant" plane. I hear there was another type of these planes, too....just haven't found one, yet.. Maybe L-N will make one out of Bronze?

    A find

    Been working antique stores on this trip and nothing I did not have or at a price I wanted to pay , til today. Found a plough plane with great pastina all original . Only a chip out on top the tote. Paid 40 and felt good as this may be a $120 plus item.

    Help with ID

    I bought that box of planes from Craig's List and want to give some of them away as gifts. The first one is a molding plane and it has "J. Webber" stamped into the end of the body. Anyone have an idea when it might have been made? Wanted to provide a little info to the recipient

    Buck Brothers

    Picked up an old Buck Brothers hand plane yesterday for $15.00. It looks to be in good shape. It needs cleaning up and the blade sharpened. The part that moves the blade toward the front, not the nut that advances the blade, but the part that has two screws under the blade looks like it should be moved forward some. Other than that, it seems to be a good one. Did I pay too much for it? I don't believe I have ever seen one made by them before. Any comments?

    Patriot Picking - Stanley No 45

    It has been a while since I was out Patriot Picking, but Tuesday, my wife and I made it down to a flea market and I ran up on this Stanley No 45 in the Metal Box. I currently have one with an 1890's patent date in the wooden box and got to looking at this one and it spoke to me so I had to take it home. It looks like it had everything in the box with the wooden holder for the blades along with several other blades laying loose in the box. The box was in good condition and the lid fits nice and tight. It has been used, but doesn't appear to be abused. I am looking forward to cleaning this one up. It has a patent day of July 09, 1901. A nice find and look forward to getting it going.

    Recycled 2x4s?

    Whew, working up a sweat now.... Hauled those 6 pieces of 2x4 down to the shop. Sat the three longer ones aside, for now.....at least until after a break.... The three shorter ones, well, they had a date with the bandsaw. I set up the resaw jig, just enough to peel off the edges past the rounded over stuff.. Maybe a 1/4"? Once all six edges were trimmed, a small plane was landed.. Ohio Tool Co. # 0-7 Jointer plane. I wanted the edges straight, free of sawmarks, and as square to the sides as I could get them.. Imagine walking around in a pile of this stuff.. Once all three boards were jointed along the sawn edges, I dug up a 3/4" thick piece of scrap. A pair of lines down the center of one edge marked a center line to saw. Reset the jig to the center of the two marks. recheck the bandsaw's table for square to the blade. Since I had to raise the saw guide a bit. Ran the three through, trying to stay centered... After a LONG break, I'll come back and plane the saw marks off. Might need that old jointer plane, again. 3 boards almost done, three to go.. Handsome critters, ain't they. hope to have them all S4S by this weekend. Might need a new blade in the bandsaw... Grandson will be here this weekend, I'll have him haul all them shavings out to the old garden plot. Not sure what I'll build out of these...yet. I also have a pile of other Pine scraps......stay tuned.

    Clock is ticking

    Picked this this afternoon... Hey,,for $5, might as well try... At first glance, you'd think it was a Stanley..... Not! Made in India, an Anant A4, Stanley knock-off. A-yep, this will take awhile..... Strange place to stick a label.....There IS a bolt down in that hole...the wrong one of course. As soon as I can rustle up some GOOD batteries for the camera, I'll go and open the Rehab Shop......will TRY to be done by suppertime. Will post results here...do you want a "blow by blow" account, or just the final results?
  23. steven newman

    Did a walk-about today..

    And walked downtown. I was just going to see IF anything was "new" at the usual place.....nope, same old,same old. Walked back out, spotted a second store across the street....it was OPEN? Turns out she is only open on Tuesdays, 12 - 4...my lucky day.... Asked about old tools....was shown a few sitting around....."How much for that rusty little thing?" At first, she wanted $7......nah....then it was down to $5......Ok, I gave her a dollar to hold the "prize" until I could get back...3 blocks each way, twice....whew. next time I'll DRIVE down there. Paid her the $4 she needed, and walked home with this "treasure" Handsome devil, ain't he? 1951 Dunlap, made by Sargent for Sears. A small chip off the corner..meh.. Not exactly sure what colour the handles are supposed to be.....decided to rest up a bit, before the Rehab Shop could open... Insides are a bit cleaner, even the spider stuff is gone. Colour is actually black, camera causing the blue tint.. The sole did take awhile, as did the sides.. Hardware cleaned up...nasty finish on the handles has been wire wheeled off.. Yep, those are the bolts for the handles....handles were a tad loose, so I buzzed about 3 threads off the ends of the bolts. Chipbreaker needed a bit of work t mate to the now flatten back of the iron. Honed the iron to 400 grit, called it good enough.. Gave the plane a test drive after it was put back together....and...here we go... rear view.. Looks a tad bit more like a plane? Works like one, too.. Might just do, for a 66 year old plane. Plane is a #3 size.
