Dresser design strong enough? - 9 replies

This is the first real furniture project that I’m not using someone else’s design on and I was second guessing whether the design is strong enough. Are the rabbet and housing dado joints on this dresser top and side panels sufficient? Should I add dowels? I’m using solid walnut.

Who likes krenov planes? - 26 replies

I recently read David Finck’s book and Scott Meek’s video on making Krenov planes. I get the impression from both that they expect that you’ll love krenov planes so much you’ll make a full set and never touch your metal planes again. Has anyone experienced that? Who’s built one krenov plane hated it and never looked back? What about people who h...

Veritas skew block plane usefulness? - 6 replies

I was wondering how well the veritas skew block plane works for actually cutting rabbets. I’m considering getting it to kill two birds with one stone. I don’t have a decent low angle block plane but I’m not satisfied with how my Stanley 78 does cross grain rabbets. So if you own this plane what do you think? Does it do a good e...

Stanley 78 rebate plane problems - 13 replies

I bought this plane on ebay several months ago and had to buy the fence and the rod separately. I’ve never been able to get it to cut squarely but it’s never been a big enough problem for me to try to solve. But I’ve got a big for me furniture project coming up that will incorporate several rebates so it’s time to solve t...

Replacement yoke for no 7 plane and thicker iron - 9 replies

I recently bought a no 7 type 11 on ebay which came with a hock iron. There are two issues with the plane and replacement iron/chip breaker. One has to do with the mouth which may have to be filed and the second is that the yoke isn’t quite long enough to connect well with the chip breaker. After looking around I found that clifton makes a...

No 7 jointer plane buying help - 42 replies

I’m getting ready to get a no 7 plane to flatten my workbench and help with a few larger projects I have planned. I’m struggling to decide which to get. At the top of my budget is the woodriver plane at about $300 after 10% off coupon, but I’m tempted by the rockler bench dog plane that’s on sale for $239. But the bench dog looks very similar to...

Back saw identification eclipse 84-3998 - 2 replies

I’m just getting into hand tools and picked up this saw for $5 at a flea market. It has Eclipse 84-3998 printed on the blade and a warranted superior made in USA medallion. The blade is 14” x 4”. I haven’t been able to find anything to help identify this saw. I’m just curious was this a good find or just good sharpening paractice? Did eclipse ma...

Cutech or Grizzly Spiral Jointer - 12 replies

I’m looking to get a bench top jointer because I don’t have room for a proper floor unit. I mainly build guitars so the longest pieces of wood I need to joint are about 24-30”. I’ve narrowed it down to either the Cutech 40160H or the Grizzly 0821 and am leaning toward the Grizzly since it has an actual helical head instea...

Help identify unusual USA made hand plane - 16 replies

A guy on craigslist is asking $15 for this hand plane. It doesn’t have a brand name but it says made in USA. Has anyone seen a plane with an unusual gripped tote like this? Any idea what it is or if it’d make a decent smoothing plane for $15?

Delta 52-965 a good deal at $200? - 2 replies

Saw this on Craigslist. It looks to me to be a really good deal for a 14” bandsaw. The picture shows that it was made in the USA. Anyone have experience with this? Should I jump on it or wait until I have a few hundred more to spend on a bandsaw?

Central Machinery T-586 drillpress buy or no? - 5 replies

I’m looking on craigslist for a decent drillpress and found this. I went and looked at it today it seems solid and sounds like it runs smooth. It says it was made in 1990. I haven’t been able to find much online about this particular drillpress. Does anyone have experience with this or similar? Is $150 a good price for it? https://tucson.crai...
