This site has been good to me and it is time to give something back - 5 replies

As long as you have some time for me to dumpster dive and you will pay the postage I am pretty sure I can g...

What happens to wood finish? - 4 replies

My parents probably made a genuine sacrifice to buy it then and it served me well when I was first married to about 20 years until we got stuff that matche...

Yoke pin on Stanley plane - 2 replies

In working with a transitional plane #28 the yoke pin is wider on the right end and drives easier to the left when installing and to the right when removing at least that’s the way I saw it tonight. Hope this someday helps somebody. My yoke was broken and I got one from a steel plane and it seems to be the right size.

Pipe clamps and Aluminum Stones--Newbie questions - 5 replies

Experience needed here. On Pony pipe clamps what is the little 7 or 8 turn spring for? Clamps are 1/2” pipe clamps. The moving end has a spring in it along with the 3 or 4 metal “grabbers” that hold the pipe. The fixed end that goes where the turning gizmo is does not seem to have room for this spring. I have a 20 year ol...

Silver maple--Comments please - 59 replies

I have the opportunity to have two silver maple milled up for about 50 cents a bf. Trees are about 25-30” breast hgt diam.

Please if you have first hand experienc...
