No. 63 Low Angle Jack Plane Woodriver.jpgGrand Prize

We are proud to offer a Woodriver No. 63 Low Angle Jack Plane to this months "What's It" winner. This months "What's It" is sponsored by our supporter Woodcraft Supply.

 

Originally advertised as a plane for heavy stock removal across the grain, the No. 62 has found a home as a smoother and is quite popular among collectors. The WoodRiver® No. 62 is faithful to the original design, but is almost a full pound heavier at approximately 4.6 lbs. It features a body cast from ductile iron, with a bed angle of 12°, a bubinga tote and front knob, and a high-carbon steel blade with a 25° bevel. The plane measures a little less than 14" in length x 2-7/16" in width and has a 2"-wide blade. (Value $205.00)

 

"What's It" Basic Rules Reminder

(For a full run down on this project and rules please go to: "The Patriot Woodworker and MWTCA "What's It" project")

  • Only Patriot Woodworker Members are eligible to participate and receive the award.
  • The MWTCA only accepts a verified source to support your answer, so one should be submitted with your answer, such as a patent, catalog entry, tool book reference, or a respectable website on the subject. Do not let these requirements prevent you from having fun and submitting educated answers on the subject without verification, we can worry about references later. All answers are welcome, as well as healthy debates regarding "What's It".
  • If a verified and referenced answer is not arrived at by the end of each month's "What's It" project, a random draw will be performed for a "One Year MWTCA Club Membership".

Ok ladies and gentlemen, we now have our May "What's it" live and ready!

Its a tethering fixture. It can hold up to four animals always males. Preferably one at a time. The next procedure is quite simple just a quick motion and their voice is now higher. Wait a few months and it dinner time.

Don't know what it is but they needed more than one.  The object in the second picture was made by a skilled blacksmith while the object in the rest of the pictures was made by a person with less skills.

At first thought it was a pendulum for watching till saw as connected on the end so.....Firewood carrier , homemade. Put the wood on the plank and hook the chains on and carry by handle.

Seems like the recesses in the board are at the opposite angle they should be to hook the ring on the chains.    Looks heavy to carry anything such as firewood.    Was thinking something round (like a pipe) goes between the recesses and the rings.     Roly

I think Gerald and Roly are on to it.  Pipes fit over the pegs and the chain rings go over the pipes when full of firewood.  Chains go further down the pipes as it is used up and keeps the remaining pieces from falling out and dinging the floor.

I think this is closer to what he envisions, Herb! These were used extensively back in his teens!

The rings on the chains would be attached to the halters to stable. Obvious now it couldn't be used for feeding :lol:

I see a clue that could determine when it wasn't made, time period anyway. It's in the fabrication of the iron. Anyone else see it? Also those chains are not attached to the wood block at all. They are there to support something.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
