Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #14: Stanley #45 Chest

06-08-2019 01:17 AM by Bill Berklich | 5 comments »

Like many LJ’ers I’ve felt the tug of vintage hand tools. I discovered and acquired a Stanley #45 almost complete for a very reasonable price and got it mostly cleaned and sharpened and it’s been laid out on a side bench. Finally found time to make a chest. I wanted to make a chest similar to the original ones with finger joints. So to get started I made a simple box joint jig. Then I thicknessed Red Oak stock to 1/2” for the sides/ends/top and I also th...

Stanley 45 Combo Plane Overhaul #6: In the home stretch :-)

01-31-2019 03:12 PM by HokieKen | 26 comments »

I had a little bit of cleanup left to do. I put a couple of coats of Tru-Oil on the knob and tote. I also had the cam rest from CL810 that I hadn’t cleaned up yet. Before. After. Then there was the slitter which I hadn’t payed any attention to yet. I cleaned it up on some wet dry paper to remove some surface corrosion. It was pretty dull so out came the diamond plates. I quickly realized there was a lot of work to do on that little sucker and that it wasn’t a...

Stanley 45 Combo Plane Overhaul #1: A new pretty :-)

01-23-2019 08:58 PM by HokieKen | 10 comments »

Recently I decided it would be beneficial to have a rabbet plane in the shop. I don’t generally buy tools unless I know they’ll get used. I’ve had several times recently I’ve had to set up the router table or a dado stack in the table saw to cut a single rabbet and thought “there has to be a more efficient way”. So I had almost settled on buying a rabbet plane but then decided to poke my head into the Stanley #45 thread here on Lumberjocks and see if may...

Hand Tool Finds #1: Introduction and Luck at an Antique Store

12-27-2018 01:25 PM by Beats85 | 3 comments »

Long time lurker, first time poster here. A little over a year ago I enlisted the help of my brother in-law to make a jewelry box for my daughter. I have been a tinkerer for a long time but that was my first serious wood working project. I got bit by the woodworking bug hard and have been learning and doing as much as I can since. Partly out of space constraints, but also because of the appeal of the “old ways” I’ve decided for now to be a completely hand tool woodworker. One day I’d lik...
