    I made a sled to plane some large "rounds" (photos below). They are about 40% moisture. Plan is to plane and seal (done). I didn't expect perfection and maybe this is good enough for now. But I am getting some "tracks". See the vertical lines in photo. These are only slight and probably would...

    I've had this video ready for the narration for about a week but couldn't finish it because I lost my voice! But now it's back and this very short video is done. I'm sure there are no shortage of good ideas for sharpening blades here but this station was quick and it can only improve from here.

    Hi guys, As a part of my workshop startup, I am looking for old Stanley planes in my budget. I am reading a lot about how to identify old Stanley. I encounter a clean plane for $45. I guess it is type 17. I appreciate any ideas and suggestions about this plane or in general buying a good...

    Greetings! I am looking at making my first hand plane purchase, but am unsure which one I should buy. As far as brands go, I've decided on the WoodRiver v3 series by Woodcraft. I feel like these are a good investment in a quality plane without getting into ridiculous levels of spending. I...

    I bought an ordinary Stanley #7 jointer hand plane at the swap meet the other day. I want to use it as a jointer for jointing (straightening and "right-angle-ing") board edges. Someday I want to buy a powered jointer, but I need something now, and it wouldn't hurt to learn hand planing skills...
  9. General Woodworking Discussion
    Hi all, I was recently given 2 old hand planes (pictures below). I am pretty new to fine woodworking, but would like to get these things into working condition. Unfortunately, the blades (and some other parts, I believe) are missing. I would really appreciate it if ya'll out there could help...

    Purchased a few handtools from an elderly widow down the street. Amongst them was this interesting "Grueco" plane which I hadn't seen before. Tried some google searches but really couldn't find any information at all, let alone even a photo of a similar plane. About all I can gather is that I...

    I'm about to make my first shooting board and have some questions. First - What materials should i use, I've heard plywood works well. Second - Some people place a small lip on the shooting surface so the plane doesn't touch the upper board. I'm assuming this is a really good idea, but was...

    Hi everyone. I'm in need of some help. I have inherited an old butcher block from the mid-1800s that was in use in our family store generations ago. (photo attached) Until about ten years ago, it was in use on our family farm. It's a single piece of wood (tree cross section), and the top...

    I am a beginner wood worker and stress is on "beginner". I am trying to get started by buying tools that can do double duty. I have an immediate need to take off some of the top of a few doors that are sticking in their jambs. However, I would like to buy something that will help me in wood...

    Hey folks, So I bought two Stanley #5s, mostly to learn something about dating them and looking for various features. I definitely plan to restore the one I'm keeping (type 13), but about the one I'm going to sell (type 16)... Will it be worth more if I restore it and sell it or will people...

    I'm trying to plane 5" rough cut reclaimed red oak boards on a bench-top jointer to remove warps and bends before sticking it through a thickness planer. However, I can only do about three to five boards before the blades are dull. I have already gone through three sets of blades. I'm trying to...

    I just found a listing on ebay for a shelton No. 4 plane. It has the older shelton adjustment. The seller is asking $10.00 for it. Is this a good plane, and what would it be used for? What size stanley does it compare to? He is also selling a vintage stanley level which looks really cool.

    I got a Stanley No. 5 off Ebay and decided to restore it. This was my first real restoration of an old tool and for the most part it went great. I didn't pay extremely close attention when disassembling it, specifically the frog and lever cap. Now, when I put the iron on and the lever cap...

    Hi all. I'm new to the forum, and having fun reading through various posts - what a great resource. I recently dug into the wallet and purchased a new Stanley Sweetheart #4 smoothing plane. I love it so far, but I have a couple of questions. First, the Norris-type blade adjustment knob for...

    Hello everyone, I've got a 220 that I got at a flea market knowing next to nothing about planes for $5. I do know a thing or two about tools in general. I helped my father build our log cabin growing up, so there is that, but on to the plane. It's got a busted mouth, like somebody pulled it with...
