06-22-2007 06:19 AM by WayneC | 9 comments »

I have not been working on this series or any real projects for that matter for quit a while. I have been working very long hours at my day job and really not feeling too motivated. Perhaps I caught some of that bug that was affecting Mot a bit back. I have a nice early type 9 or so Stanley #4 I want to restore as part of the set I am putting together. You can go back to post one to see my overall plans if you want, but, iin a nutshell, I plan to assemble a complete set of old Stanley ...

05-14-2007 12:14 AM by WayneC | 11 comments »

Today is Mothers day. To cellibrate, the family and I went to the monthly antique sale. and I thought I would document the day’s find. This antique sale is fairly large and makes for a good family outing. There is a little something for everyone. I did miss one item that made me wish I had been there a little earlier. It was a large, highly figured and very beautiful lignum vitae mallet. Such is life. I was looking for router planes and also perhaps a scrub plane to add to the s...

Handplane Restoration #15: Stanley Bedrock #605 Jack Plane

05-07-2007 04:14 AM by WayneC | 7 comments »

Today was a day with a lot chores to be done, so I picked a plane to rework that required little effort. This is a Stanley Bedrock plane from the mid-1930s. Bedrock planes are Stanley’s preimum line of handplanes. They were made in sizes from #2-#8. All of the planes are numbered in the 600 series (e.g. 603, 606, etc.) The early planes had a rounded side similar to normal Stanley Bailey planes. In the early 1900s the planes changed to a more square side as you can see from the ph...

Handplane Restoration #11: Stanley #4 Type 3/4?

04-27-2007 07:06 AM by WayneC | 8 comments »

I’ve been having blogging withdrawals and was hoping to get started on my next plane restoration. Tonight, after I was able to free myself from my last meeting of the day, I inspected the #4 I had set aside for restoration. As you can see from the photo’s this plane is pretty rough. This plane was in a box of planes I bought at an antique store for $50. There were a good 15 planes in the box and lots of other Misc tools. The owner had it in the back of the store ...

Handplane Restoration #7: Stanley Bailey #3 Type 10 before

04-02-2007 02:07 AM by WayneC | 3 comments »

This is a Stanley Bailey #3 Type 10 Bench Plane that I picked up a few weeks back at a local antique street sale. It was better than the one that I had set aside to restore. (I’ll save the other one for Obi if he wants it) The purchase price for this plane was $20. The first step in the restoration process is to determine the type of the plane and condition of the plane. To do this I looked up the plane using the stanley bench plane dating page. using information from the plane. ...
