STANLEY BENCH PLANE RESTORATION Click here for large format version PDF ELECTROLYTIC RUST REMOVAL INSTRUCTION SHEET More information available on my woodworking blog & podcast The Folding Rule Show Step #1 – Cleaning & Rust Removal I have been inspired by a number of resources to start using my hand planes and start on the slippery slope of a hand plane collection. Not the least of whom has been Wayne, our own Lumberjocks plane guru. Of course I have also explored...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 17 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 38 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Good Quality Hand Planes On a Budget

03-15-2010 05:31 AM by knotscott | 21 comments »

In recent years there’s been an influx of imported lower priced value hand planes hitting the market. Some are decent, some are marginal, some are a waste of money. In the lower price ranges, most newer planes use lower quality metal on all components, thinner blades, thinner castings, and poorer machining techniques. With an upgraded aftermarket blade, and some fettling, some of the low cost new planes can be made into useful tools, but many are an exercise in futility and frustration. Even ...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #6: Adding the casters and finishing the project

04-03-2011 07:30 PM by Lockwatcher | 0 comments »

Well, my casters came in from my local Woodwerks store. Just as in previous entries, the casters are the most expensive part of this project. The casters I have been using lock both the wheel and the pivot as well. Without the double lock, when you push on the table, the pivot will spin – and you can move the table – even when locked. Let’s install the casters next: Below: These are the casters (with double lock mechanism) Below: Use the bottom of the caster to...

Handplane Restoration #18: Stanley #78 Duplex filletster and rabbet plane

07-07-2007 10:31 PM by WayneC | 19 comments »

I’m straying a little from the bench planes today and documenting the restoration of a Stanley #78 Duplex Filletster and Rabbet Plane. I found this plane at the flea market last weekend and had been wanting to play with one. This one was in fairly good condition and was complete. Many of these planes that you find are missing parts. Things to look for are the depth stop, fence, and 3 blade spur. This plane can be used with the blade in two position one for normal use where you cu...

Techniques & Methods #1: Scary Sharp Method

06-18-2008 03:43 AM by PurpLev | 28 comments »

so just like every other woodworker at one point (what’s up with the other every other woodworkers is beyond me…) I was researching and learning about ways to sharpen my chisels, planes, and other blade tools in the shop. Since I am the weekend warrior at this point, and I do not need to resharpen my tools THAT often, nor THAT much, I figure that I can do without any expensive powertools (there are several of those on the market) to sharpen blades and I dont really have the spa...

Tool Tutorials #1: Plane frog and cap iron adjustment

10-21-2010 08:53 PM by David Craig | 15 comments »

I have read a great deal of tutorials on plane tuning and restoration processes over the last few weeks. Before getting started on my plane accumulation, I wanted to be as educated as possible. Most tutorials contain excellent information on the basics of sole flattening, blade honing, frog flattening, etc. But, I find the information comes up a little short on why the advice is given to avoid newer planes (except LN), what pitfalls can be expected with a newer plane (i.e. record planes post ...

"Art Box" Tutorial #6: The Lid

06-30-2009 04:42 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Regarding wood movement:Depending on the wood you use, where you live, and your own personal experience,y ou may want to allow more clearance.This is what works for me. I really dont allow for any movement at this stage. I know this sounds like trouble waiting to happen, but it works just fine for me. Even if we start off with a snug fit, we will still end up with a small gap around the perimeter. This is due to the final sanding and easing of the edges between lid and l...

"Art Box" Tutorial #9: It all hinges on this.

07-17-2009 03:53 PM by Andy | 8 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is where you need to decide how you want to open your box. I mentioned at the outset about some of the different boxes I have made and how they hinge differently from one another. All are good, but you may have a preference in style or it may be your ability that decides for you. The pin hinge is what we will mainly be focusing on and was used on this box. Chapter 10 will discuss this style. The Deco box uses a standard brass butt hinge with a stop stra...
