Shop Tools #21: Stanley 66 Hand Beader

10-01-2013 03:57 AM by WayneC | 10 comments »

I have wanted one of these for quite a while and last week the gods of eBay smiled upon me. The beader is essentially a mass produced scratch stock that puts profiles on wood. Stanley made them from 1886 to 1941. Because this one is jappaned, it was made before 1898. Handplane Central has some information here. When shopping for them you want to look for one that preferably has its fence and set of 9 cutters. You can also make your own cutters with custom profiles. Both Lee Valle...

Shop Tools #20: Union 42 Tongue and Groove Plane

09-28-2013 03:01 AM by WayneC | 10 comments »

Another tool is moving into the toolbox and taking up residence. This one is a Union 42 tongue and groove plane. It was purchased to go with a Union 41 Tongue and Groove Plane I got a while back. These are functionally the same as Stanley 48 and 49 T&G planes. The Union 42 is the equivalent of the Stanley 49 and appears to be much less common that the Union 41. The Union 42 is designed to cut tongues and grooves in stock 3/8” to 3/4” thick, and centers its groove on stock...

Jameson and Co. 5" Brace

09-27-2013 04:12 PM by WayneC | 8 comments »

I got this 5” sweep brace as part of an eBay tool lot. This is actually the first brace I have seen with this small of a sweep. It is marked “Jameson and Co. Warrantied”. I Googled the company and only found one reference for the company name. It was from Newcastle UK. If any of the UK Lumberjocks have any info I would greatly appreciate it. This is a photo of the brace with my 6” Millers Falls #34 so you can see the size of the brace.

Shop Tools #19: Stanley 140

09-27-2013 02:27 AM by WayneC | 10 comments »

Documenting the addition of another plane to the tool box. This one is a #140 Rabbet and block plane . They are pretty cool planes. One side of the plane can be removed for doing rabbet work on things like tenons. With the side on it can be used like a normal block plane. I’ve been looking for the right one for a while and also have been torn as to if I should get the Lie-Nielsen or stick with an old Stanley. This one is in pretty nice shape and it was about 1/3 the cost of the...

Shop Tools #18: Record 044 Combination Plane #2

09-19-2013 10:53 PM by WayneC | 10 comments »

Documenting the addition of my second Record 044 Plough plane to the shop. This one only came with a single cutter and is missing the short rods. This one was made prior to 1951. My other plane is complete with all cutters and both sets of rods. More info on this plane can be found at the following links. Cornish Workshop Record Planes

Shop Tools #17: Stanley Bedrock 605 1/2c

08-30-2013 12:22 AM by WayneC | 7 comments »

Again documenting another plane. I believe this is a type 5, the first of the square sides. This plane was only made in 1911 making it approximately 102 years old. This will be my primary 5 1/2 size user. It was obtained in the mail from eBay today. Main complaints are the tote broken in two places, the chip breaker on the blade backwards, and the frog way out of adjustment. Also, the seller sanded the plane a bit, which I think probably turned some folks off. I disassembled, replace...

Shop Tools #16: New Plane Stanley 5 1/4c

08-29-2013 12:06 AM by WayneC | 7 comments »

Just documenting this plane. It will fill this slot in my bench plane family until I get crazy lucky and find a 605 1/4 in the wild or have extra money to plunk down on the LN version of the plane. I am upgrading from a post WW2 version of the plane. This one is an early example and it is corrugated. If you take Patrick Leech at his word this is the scarcest (5 1/4 corrugated plane) of the Stanley bench planes. Unfortunately this one has been drilled to hang on the wall. More info c...
