A Project for August, Tool Chest #10: Drawer #4...

Needed to sharpen a few items, too….spurs on the Stanley 45 were bad...This one needed sharpened up….the other one? Only reached to be flush with the edge of the skate….replaced it with a spare from the Stanley 45’s case…and sharpened one of the un-sharpened lobes….NOW the plane can score 2 lines across, so I can plough a dado, or two.. One other item needing work…I have a WR #62…was getting DULL, area under the blade had filled up with &#...

While I was at it..I added a screw to the back corners… Counter sunk, of course…last of the first stash of Ash was hauled to the shop…after which Old Murphy was fired..Drawer #5 needed two sides milled for length and width.. Done. Drawer #3…ne...

We have a few blanks for drawer fronts….need a few sides.. 7 out of the 10 I needed…still a couple fronts short… Bring another plank to the shop. Even milled backs for the top 2 drawers….that need to be quite a bit thinner than the sid...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #6: We have glue up!

08-09-2021 01:03 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

One thing lead to another…was almost as bad as herding cats…not quite, but close…Drawer dividers kept sliding in and out usually when I was adding a clamp to that exact spot…..kept the mallet handy, to “resolve” any disputes That thin section of sliding dovetail? both front ones had cracked, and needed glued back in place..more clamp Then, along the front, where the floor board resides in the rebate….bead of glue was added in the rebate, then...

Acorn No 4 - refurb #1: Made in Sheffield - pre-Stanley Acorn #4

08-08-2021 09:39 PM by Brodan | 2 comments »

Picked up a couple of Acorn #4 planes a few weeks ago. A quick search revealed this tidbit. The Acorn brand name was first used by James Arscott Chapman who is simply listed as a “tool and metal plane maker” from 1924-1939 in Goodman’s guide. Chapman Ltd was located in Sheffield England and was known for its range of steel braces, but later started making hand planes under the “Acorn” name in 1934. Around 1936 Stanley Works Ltd (Yes, THE Stanley) bought out Chapman Ltd and used the fac...

08-08-2021 12:59 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Catching up a bit…router table has been put away….tablesaw brought back out. Set up a Stanley #45, Type 4 to mill a couple dados In hind-sight, I should have added the Cam rest…as this was hard to keep from tipping to either side..mainly to the left…First, I had it set for 1/4” deep.. Discovered the spurs were a bit on the DULL side…got a bit..chippy.. Plywood to get for high spots…old, plain candle to help ease the plane through the cu...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #2: Panels flattened, web-frames started, is it August yet?

08-01-2021 10:18 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

So….panels are now out of the clamps….? Not exactly, but.. First they will need a bit of trim work…square the ends, too. Handsaw? No…Unless this counts as such.. A Vintage saw? 6” version. Needs a way to guide it along, too…..rip fence from the tablesaw can also be used for other chores.. I mark the cut line first, then use the saw’s foot plate to mark the distance between the blade and the edge of the plate…square that line a...

Picked about 24 bft of 1×6 Ash last Monday…and in search of a Project to use it on… When I thought about…this mess.. Three cardboard boxes, plus stuff that didn’t quite fit….sitting on top of an Old Coffee Table….might keep the table as a base? Maybe a Tool chest…..got to be better than … This thing ( will be heading to the curb..)But…maybe a chest of tool drawers? Not sure about the number of drawers, yet…or their s...
