Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #11: A home for my Stanley 45 Irons

03-11-2019 11:56 AM by Bill Berklich | 0 comments »

When we last saw our hero… (oops wrong story). Well still no substantive progress on the tool cabinet – waylaid by surgery/recovery and weather. Unheated garage is not conducive to cutting/fitting/gluing/finishing at 10F. I do need to get busy soon ‘cuz the house is going up for sale in a couple more weeks and packing has already started. But that is a another story. I have managed a few smaller projects over the past month or so on warmer days and with the heater going...

Vintage Tool Rehab Projects #31: Adding a Stanley #45 to the Till

10-16-2015 08:18 PM by Brad | 4 comments »

I’ve always been fascinated by the Stanley #45 contraption—with all its knobs and screws and accessories. It was tailor-made for folks who love gear and accoutrements. And to justify its purchase, I reasoned that I would put it in my Dutch tool chest for when I travel. It was after all, billed as “45 Planes in One.” An eBay foray delivered a Sweetheart model to my door for $158.35 shipped.

Workshop upgrades #1: Glenn Drake saves the day...twice.

03-06-2011 05:33 AM by RGtools | 6 comments »

I am currently building a small shelf out of Alder and some mystery white wood to house some of my finer tools so that I do not have to go into my larger cabinet to get them all the time. This is part of a larger initiative to keep my sharp tools sharp and accessible, as someone who only uses hand tools most of the time this is about as critical to my work-flow as paying the power bill before someone fires up their table saw. Roughly six hours got me to this point. I really did not take a...

Setting up my shop #3: The planes are on the wall.

12-10-2009 03:08 AM by CoolDavion | 2 comments »

After reading a lot of different options about how to store your planes (on there sole, on their side, blade in, blade out, etc) here is what I came up with: Here is the holder, basically two platforms on opposite ends of a cleat, edged with pieces of lattice As you can see I sized the platforms to be short of the blade opening. Both platforms are the same size so that I don’t need to place the plane the same direction every time.
