  1. Rust Hunt on a Saturday....rain threatening ....Antique Mall 3 blocks from the house, and the Boss has sent me out to run a few errands...including buying a new roll of Blue "City" trash bags.....and..of course I hit that Mall...first. Backyard is shaping up... Metal framework is gone, most of the trash and old tarps or bagged up. That be the Neighborhood Yard Nazi's Garage, back there....her attempt to mow the yard got..rained out....too bad. I have to learn to NOT go up to the second floor of the Mall....but...I did spend about...$19 and change...on just
  2. In the process of building that box....had a bunch of resets on the Stanley #45 to do....mainly changing where the fence will be, and whether short or long rods were to be used....decided to make some things a bit..easier to do To change those rods...there are 4 thumbscrews to loosen, and tighten back up, with one too close the the handle area. They all needed a pair of needle nosed pliers to get them to ...move...look right under the wheel to adjust the depth of cut....so... I retired these two (FIRED!) and stashed them away...had a pair of slotted bolts to replace them..
  3. Anybody ever see this phenomenon? Same wood as other letters, same grain direction. Walnut for the back keep an eye on the l. What the heck happened? no. Same wood as other letters, same grain direction received_1829868993843337.mp4
  4. Well, the Christmas Gift Exchange list is out.....I have to find a present for my Grand daughter-in-law...... Bought about 25bft of Quarter Sawn Ash, today.... There are 11 boards in that stack..average width is just under 6"....all are around 3/4" thick. Hmmmmm, how about a Blanket/ Hope Chest build? Frame and panel? Or maybe a "6 board" style? been a while since I built a chest....maybe see what I can come up with? Give things about a week, or so...while the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up works things up into a "Plan" have to work around t
  5. Guys, I need to improve the quality of blade for my Stanley #7, I've tried everything to fix the cap iron re-beveled it sharpened to not allow any light thru but the chips still get in between. Thinking of getting a set of Hock pieces was looking for input or/and a good place to buy. Best price quick shipping and so on. Thanks Pat
  6. From the depths of the "Dungeon Warehouse Basement" in Milwaukee Wisconsin, we have this "Poor Soul" of a Stanley Bailey No. 22 Smoothing Plane. This "Poor Soul" spent the last few years in the bottom drawer of a filing cabinet that was in the basement of a warehouse in Milwaukee that flooded 4 or 5 years ago. There were several planes in this drawer, and this one survived in the best condition. I did a little research, and found that Stanley made these planes from 1870-1943. I believe this one dates from the end years of production due to the Stanley T
  7. The Stanley No. 49 auger bit depth gauge, I can't even tell it's on the auger, it fits great and feels well balanced.
  8. I set it to an inch deep and drilled multiple holes in poplar, nice and clean, and the same depth, it just takes a little practice to see when it hits, because you really can't feel it hit.
  9. Haven't watched this all yet, but a PBS documentary on the Stanley Works (about an hour long) https://vimeo.com/253882614
  10. So over the course of the spring, summer & fall when I haven't been working on the lawn mowers, mowing/trimming the acreage, working on someone's vehicle or coordinating repairs while in a shop, transporting grandkids, attending grandkid's events, tending to other family matters and maybe the occasional nap, I'd squeeze in some small tool re-conditioning from my yard sale & flea finds...Thanks for looking... This came from a yard sale...got it tossed in with a 7-1/4" Skil saw & case...all for $5; Sorry no before pictures but the screw and rails had a fair amount of surf
  11. Found these at the Restore yesterday, Stamped 18 Eagle Square Mfg. South Shaftbury Vt. Body is 1.5" x 18" and the tongue is 1" x 12" $2.50 Just inch increments no framing scales, Clean & smooth, no pitting. A Stanley #61 Boxwood .5" x 24" rule Stanley rule & level co. Warranted New Britain Conn. USA Has two pins in place, one at the 7/17" mark & one at the 11.25" mark. $6.00 Clean but needs a little lube in the joints. Any info is appreciated.
  12. Saw this plane on Facebook. Lady asking anything about it. I see Stanley bought Bailey's patents and machinery in 1869 and then used them and that is why Stanley planes are Bailey . So thinking this is before 1869 ?? Edit : Opps did not do enough research . It is a G-3 Gage Patent plane. Patent date 1885. When Stanley bought the company in 1919 and produced this plane from 1920 till 1920. Mystery solved but it does not make sense . I have never seen one of these , has anyone ?
  13. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    Just a very handsome Stanley No. 40 I picked up. 9" long, heavy with a great feel. I'd love to complete it with a whole set. I'll be on the look out.
  14. Will the "real" Craftsman tools, please stand-up. Not surprising this dispute would surface sooner-than-later... Stanley sues Sears
  15. 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 reg
  16. 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
  17. Now I am excited! Hey, simple mind, simple pleasure. I ordered the Stanley No. 49 Auger Bit Depth Stop, should be here by Saturday. It'll be a very handy addition for my holes! Ya I know I could make some, but I really like these mechanical do-dads and gizmos.
  18. 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.
  19. Some great information & pictures to help date Stanley planes by model numbers as well as resources for cleaning, sharpening and tuning planes. Also includes a brief history of Stanley Tool Works.
  20. Stumbled upon this site while researching a Victor smoothing plane. Lots of good information here about dating tools, restoration, etc.
  21. I had a little time yesterday after meeting my brother for lunch before I had to get back home. I hadn't been to Habitat for Humanity Restore for quite some time. Also stopped at the "Flea Market Warehouse" and one other small flea market...found these two "treasures" at H4H Restore. Spent a total of $1.39 including the tax. The blue sticker is discounted 20%. Always can use the "scotchbrite for something...Surform plane to turn quality lumber into chips faster thus saving time..."twin" for my 40+ y/o Craftsman version.

    Picked up a 408(I think is same as Stanley #4 ) Sargent hand plane that was clean, sharp and ready to go for $10.00. How bad did I do? My thinking is to sell all my Stanley Baileys and Baileys and use the lesser knowns for my work. I have some others like Dunlop, Craftsman, Buck Brothers, etc. I can pick up Stanley knockoffs with no name, and if it fits my hand, is well made, and is in good shape, I can always do all right. What do you say about my theory? Also, I turned down Wood Magazine's last offer because they shut down our community forum. I would not be surprised if they quit pu
  23. So a week or so ago, I posted on a recent Craftsman Machinist combo square I added to my growing stable. As I noted then, I didn't need it, but it was $2 and needed a rust revival... Why didn't I really need it? Well... Sorry pictures aren't the greatest but I was (am still) fighting cold cooties. Before picture conditions for most of these appear in other threads, so I won't bore you here. Top one: Craftsman Machinist recently purchased; one below w/ red strap I bought a few weeks ago for ~$1; I thought was a a cheapo Taiwan since that's what the square head was lab
  24. Found a Stanley level at the Restore today for $1.50. It is spot on too. Has these markings. It is only 20 years old? This is a picture from Google images. Mine says Pat 6-21-91 6-23-96
  25. Not wanting to hijack another thread about Stanley Levels.. Happen to remember I have a 24" version of a Stanley SW Level. . 24" long, Cherry & Brass. Hmm...someone even clocked the screws.... This cost me $3 a few years back...a No. 3 Level. There is even a spot to adjust the "plumb" dial Underneath this plate, is how you can adjust this dial... Both levels still work nicely. And, the Brass caps even have all their screws... May see IF the bubbles need any adjustment...sometime...Main one seems to read r
