Topic tags/keywords: plane cart chest bead stanley 45

The 45 is finally usable and I started to run a bead on a drawer front for my Sharpening cart – I definitely need to learn the adjustments and nuances of this tool but I think it’s going to be a good add to my tool chest.

Dang Bill – you have a fine looking profile plane. I hope that is the right description.

Thanks – great Blog link, I’m going to use several parts of it. Next up for this baby is a blade box then a box for the whole thing.

Bill, it’s an easy beast to tame. Used mine for some rabbets yesterday -

And needed a depth stop where one didn’t fit. So, I improvised with a cut nail.

Hey Smitty – good to know. I need to spend some time with the 45 and get to know it’s adjustments. I like your improvisation ;-) I’m hoping to use it for the rabbets and dados when I build the box for it – I saw someone else on here do that and it looked good.

Bill,
you are a more patient man than me. I have a 45 and a 55 but I haven’t taken the time to set them up for anything but collecting dust from my routers.

I hope you have a peaceful, QUIET, and earplug free experience. There is something soothing about the soft “snick sound” of a sharp plane taking a paper thin shaving.
Cheers,
Tim
