  1. Zebrawood Tote & Knob Sets for Stanley No. 4

    I am in the process of restoring a bunch of old Stanley/Bailey planes, and many of them had broken or damaged totes/knobs. This was my first attempt at making my own tote/knob set. I chose Zebrawood, and I decided to make 2 knobs and 2 totes. Obviously, the knobs were turned on a lathe. The...
  2. Referbished Hand Plane

    The Stanley number 7 For my plane class at Palomar College I choose the big one to referbish becasue I wanted to use it to flatten the new workbench. The process is involed and time consuming. Oh yes I did forget how big the bottom was and of course I had to flatten that part. We also...

  4. Drill Press Table V1

    EDIT: Pictures are too wide for here. If you want to see them without them being cut off, go to my photobucket drill press library. Well, during football season, not much woodworking gets done. As such, my project over the last three weekends has been a drill press table. I meant to...

    I recently had to drill out a bolt on an old Stanley plane. The plane only cost me $15 so no big loss. Anyway, since Stanley bolts are not common thread, I ordered a bunch of similarly sized and shaped bolts. I had to redrill and retap the holes for 1/4" by 20tpi though. These are not big box...

    I'm trying to restore a type 20 Stanley No.5 jack plane that I've had lying around for a while to good working condition. Everything seems to be in fairly decent shape except for one crucial component: the y-adjustment lever, AKA the "yoke", which of course in the type 20's is a cheesy assembly...

    Any Stanley Type experts out there? I picked up an early Stanley transitional plane at a garage sale last weekend but I'm having difficulties determining the type as I can only find type studies for metal body planes and Liberty Bell planes. If anyone has extensive knowledge of Stanley types...

    I was at a sale with many old woodworking hand tools. I ended up with a PS&W extra chisel. Anyway, I seen this Stanley plane with a extra wide base to it. I wasn't sure what type it was or what it was used for. None of the other folks there did either.

    This cabinet scraper belonged to my great-grandfather. A couple of months ago, I was cleaning my garage and decided to clean out his old "too box" which was some 1/4" plywood nailed together with a rope for a handle. This was one of two Stanley tools that were in there. I have access to some...

    Lucky find I have started buying Stanley planes. I'm not collecting for resale. I am purchasing for use. Over the last few months, I found a No. 7, No. 5-1/4 and a No. 3 on Ebay. They all need cleaning and sharpening. I also purchased 2 No. 4's from Craig's List. While browsing CL last week I...

    A few days ago I posted a request on the Hand Plane of Your Dreams forum to some of my buddies to help out if they could. I was thinking maybe I could squeeze out maybe a combined 50 dollars or so. The response was overwhelming. And we are now at 21% of our goal to cover Jesse's medical costs...
