  1. Hand Tools
    Hi! I am a beginner and have been trying to learn how to hand plane. I recently bought a restored Stanley No. 4 hand plane. I was inspected all the pieces and noticed that the chipbreaker sits crooked on the iron. I have added a picture of it. Will this affect it in a noticeable way? thank you!
  2. Hand Tools
    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...

    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...

It has a 10 inch blade and has the number 803 on it. The number is kind of hard to see but it for sure has the iconic sweetheart logo. Does anyone...

    So, i recently found an old stanley bailey no 4, i believe it's a type #19(c.1948-1961) for pretty cheap at an antique shop. I was in the process of taking it all apart when i got stuck on the tote screw. The tote itself has a little wobble to it, but no matter how hard i try i can't budge the...
  8. Tips, Tricks, & Homemade Jigs
    I decided to build a couple of side tables for my wife (she's been asking for them for 2 yrs:eek:) and it wasnt in the original 'mind design' but I figured I'd throw some Breadboard Ends on it and use it as a tutorial! I'll be doing this build with primarily traditional hand tools but you can...
