  1. What's on your work bench? This is the official topic for images and friendly chatter regarding that all important surface, the personal statement of your shop, the steadfast friend we can always count on, the space of your shop that nobody knows better than you, we are talking about the almighty "Work Bench". Submit your images now! That's right, don't clean it up, don't be embarrassed, the messier the better, or if there is nothing on it at all, that is fine too. If you have not touched your bench in years, and you have taken a break from woodworking and have boxes pile
  2. 3 planes...first 2 were easy... Handsome, ain't they...spent about $10 for these three "gems"...In the front is a Sargent V.B.M. #5408/408c (Stanley #3 sized) mainly a lot of wire wheel work, a few spots needed a spritz of PBblaster to loosen bolts up....sole was "groovy" Yeah....refinished the wooden parts...old finish was flaking off.... NOT Rosewood, Sargent used East African Mahogany. Base has a coat of penetrating oil...later was wiped down and a fresh coat of black was sprayed on.. Made about 1917. Metal parts were shined up, chipbreaker m
  3. Hi, I have four hand planes that I 'd like to sell, but unfortunately I don't know much about hand planes. even the identification / model can be a job to figure out I'm finding out. I've had these since new, early to mid 80's I'm guessing, and never really used them. There is no rust on them, all in pretty good condition in my opinion. Two of them are Stanley's, and the other two are Sears, all of them were made in England. The Stanley bench plane is a 14", and the Sears bench plane is a 9". The Stanley block plane is a low angle, and the Sears is a regular block plane. Any idea of the a
  4. Spotted these in the background of a sale ad that is selling other items and have sent a note to the seller asking if they are for available as they appears to have a price tag in the photo. Picture shows poor details and is the only 1 I have available. Anybody recognize these items and are they significant in any way such as value or usefulness. They look specialized like they run in a guide a a miter plane would. I have not seen any planes quite like this before and not sure what they are? It looks like the left one is two pieces I.e. plane and track or slide while right one appears r
  5. Meandered down to the shop this evening.....decided to at least try a few things out.....tried the Aldi's crosscut saw to make four pieces of pine parts... It do cut fast, and it even tried to cut me thumb. Got two small holes. It had hopped up out of a cut. The 1x6 I am using was a little out of....focus. Needed a plane to bring things back into line.. I planed the two matching sides together, edge grain and end grain. I wanted them to match, and be at least close to square...Plane didn't do too bad on the end grain.. Millers Falls No. 11 junior jack pl
  6. I was asked in 2015 to bring some old tools in for a presentation as part of our local library centennial celebration. While not an expert, I am somewhat versed in the subject as a hobby and so I presented for about 15 minutes that night about tools at the turn of the century. Fast forward 4 years and I was asked to return. I talked for 90 minutes on basic hand tool design and use, makers marks, electrolysis rust removal, refinishing and whatever else came out in questions. My 11 y.o. Daughter helped me at the first showing and spent 10 minutes talking with the crowd about her planes and
  7. I have been posting some of my furniture builds. Here are are few of the tools I have made. There are details and pictorial on my website for those interested in making their own: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ShopMadeTools/index.html A few of these have been featured in Fine Woodworking magazine. This is one - a bridle plough plane ... The plough is based on the Mathieson Bridle Plough. The “bridle” is the method in which the fence is attached to the arms. For centuries many methods have been offered to ensure that the fence runs parallel to the skate. The bridle appe
  8. So I had hoped to get to Lee Valley while in Vancouver before we left for our Alaskan Cruise but the promise of going to Butchart Gardens one day took the whole day and the flight from DC to Vancouver left the first day with us exhausted so there was no getting to Lee Valley as hoped. And flying back from Fairbanks niched any chance. So as much as I wanted to I'm lead to deciding on a low angle block plane which I intend to use for taking the edge off some corners and for planing end grain which I hear it does quite well. Better than sanding if truth be told. I need it to be perfec
  9. Today I finished another batch of 8 wooden planes so I will bore you with the pictures. Herb
  10. Lee Valley Custom Shop is now open...
  11. The first one was that little guy that hurt my hand to use. I thought if I made it larger to get a better grip it would be better. But not so, still was a pretty plane but not so pretty to use, Then I fixed it on the 3rd try. Pic 1. is the first one you have already seen. The last picture is a reject block plane I threw in to fill out the upload. For some reason the pictures loaded before my Text ??????? Herb
  12. Been a while since this was mentioned, so I thought I'd mention it again. I knew Patrick years ago when he was active on "old tools" mail list (predecessor of "forums") and how I'd waste my lunch time at work. Even before eBay drove up prices of old Stanleys, for a while. http://www.supertool.com/StanleyBG/stan0a.html
  13. Today I finish sanded 4 planes and got the 1st coat of shellac on them to see if any marks show up that I need to sand out.
  14. I got to thinking that maybe since I had a couple of plane blades left that I would make a couple more planes. This time I used some Russian Birch Plywood scraps I wanted to use up. Russian birch is not as good of a grade as Baltic birch, but there was a time not so long ago where the Chinese had bought up all the BB and we couldn't get any, so the lumber yards here stocked 4X8 sheets of Russian birch. Also I had a piece of Purple Heart that I have been trying to find a project to make out of it. I found out one thing when I finished the other planes I gave them a coat of shellac and san
  15. As I posted in another thread I have started making 18-20 wooden block planes that I made 4 several years ago copied from a Wood magazine. Since I have a presentation at our local WW club, I plan on giving a presentation on how to make these. I figure if I give each member that comes to the meeting one of these to hold and examine while I go through the steps of building one, it might be more clear in their mind how to do it themselves. And they might not fall asleep during the presentation. Yesterday I showed the blocks glued up for the bodies, and the one I am using for the pattern.
  16. but I don't hold a candle to these guys. I caught this on another forum and thought it might of interest here. The Japanese really take hand plane skills seriously. Skip to the 2 minute mark to get to the real stuff.
  17. Among the split-tip screwdrivers, all are one brand except the one at the bottom which is labelled "Klein"; the rest are Quick-Wedge. I still have a lot of work to do on the planes, as neither one has been really cleaned up well. The Reed & Prince is an old Craftsman i bought many years ago - note how the tip is much different from the look-alike Phillips.
  18. Stumbled upon this site while researching a Victor smoothing plane. Lots of good information here about dating tools, restoration, etc.
  19. Have ya'll heard of Jim Bode Tools, ya, pretty cool. They are advertised in the MWTCA Gristmill. Have fun! https://www.jimbodetools.com/collections/whats-new
  20. On another site, there was a thread about wanting to use a #8 Jointer plane....in making boxes and trays... I made up a little show & tell.....the OP has a #62 ( I think) and was wanting to buy a #8. A #5 Jack plane is roughly the same size as a #62, so.. In my case, this would be the Millers Falls #14 Jack plane sitting beside my Stanley #8.....bit of a size difference? Jack has a 2" wide iron, the #8 has a 2-5/8" wide cutter...Hmmm, maybe if we try a Jumbo Jack instead? An inch or so longer, and the cutter is a 2-3/8" wide....rather an "overwei
  21. Like the title says.. Some have already seen this plane til....those block planes across the top? Are the main users. Half are low angle ones. Some of the "special" planes. The old block plane is great for knocking off excess dried glue.. There is one thing about these wood bodied planes...they weigh a bit less than the iron versions. That red jack? That is my "scrub" plane. The Big Guys. The Millers Falls #14 because it is used as a big smooth plane. A #8, another #7, and a #81 try plane. You need your Wheaties, before a full da
  22. Rehabs the rest of the weekend, maybe? One Garage sale...all it said was.."Tools" Boss spent more than I did...but, she wasn't buying tools. I spent around $9 this morning...picked five tools Just had to shine up that medallion, to see what this saw was. . Hmmm, ring a bell? Saw is 26" long, has 8ppi, a skew back, and is wickedly SHARP. Paid a dollar for it... This be a $2 all-steel Shelton block plane....next.. This be a Millers Falls No. 900, I think. made after the Mohawk-Shelbourne line was ended...mid 50s? $2.....h
  23. I read with great interest and relief for the outlook that James Krenov had with his hand tools, and sharpening, and maintenance. For years I have been put off by the many sharpening gadgets, guides, holders, science, bevel up, bevel down, yadayadayada. I have always thought that folks can get wound waaaay too tightly over the science of woodworking, and tooling, so much so they forget the joy of the actual woodwork. James Krenov had a very lax position on the sharpening of his tools, specifically hand plane blades. He sharpened free hand, never spent too much time doing it, never
  24. This past week I purchased this Stanley No. 71 Router plane and was glad to add it to my collection. I haven't done anything to it yet as far as cleaning it up. It has a patent date of March 4 '84. This is a Type 4 No 71 Router Plane. This plane was only made for a three year period in this configuration so this is a fairly rare plane to find. I already had a No 71 Type 8. They type 8 was made between 1908 and 1915. Also in the collection I had two Stanley No 71 1/2 planes. The first one is a No 71 1/2
  25. On the road trip from the Lumberjocks get together......trying to make it around curves and over mountains...back end of the pickup truck was FULL. Kept looking for ANY Antique Stores / Malls......got back into OHIO before we even found one open. To even get out of the Shindig, we had to load up as much of Charles Neil's "scrap wood bin" as we could. This is about half of my "share"..the rest is further back in that corner. Anyway, this is about tools.. These two are the "keepers" of the BUNCH... This one is only for the handle, plate
