Include the make and model of the plane, or at least add a picture of the whole thing
I don’t think anybody says you have to do everything without jigs or fixtures. Paul shows how to make uniform thickness stock, tapered stock, matched mortise and tenons, and dovetails, all with jigs. Shooting boards and mitre boxes are added by him to the list of aids.
You mention Krenov. The same holds true for Tage Frid, Sam Maloof, Frank K…[Read more]
Paul uses a 7 sweep – 35 mm gouge in that video, if memory serves right. The brand he displayed is Hirsch, I think, but he has used Other brands, including two cherrys and Swiss made-Pfeil, and an English brand I don’t recall. All will work.
He also uses the same or similar size in the video on making a Mancala board.
Irwin and Jennings bits are often $1 at flea markets near me.
When I’m bored with the offerings there, I pick through them.
80% are worn out. Check carefully.
Expansive bits to 3” are also a choice. Good brands are Irwin, Jennings, Clark( the original) Stanley, or Miller falls.
( about $12 with 2 cutters at a flea market)
A beginning woo…[Read more]
For 3/16” to 1/12”, The old standard were Irwin or Russel Jennings bits, now rare new but apparently still being made. There are millions on the used tool market. Condition of the Spurs is everything.
The new standard are three flute bits by Wood Owl, which I think are Japanese.
Irwin als…[Read more]
For further verification. I have a Stanley 45 and an old 50,and the cutters are 1/8” thick within a couple thousandths. I can use them interchangeably except that the 50 cutters have no notch and I have to set them By hand.( they are 74 mm long)
I also acquired a Craftsman 45 set of cutters, and they are complete clones of the Stanleys. (…[Read more]
Are you trying to use the brace with round bits or the square conical ends like Irwin and Jennings brace bits?
One thing to check is that the inside of the chuck housing isn’t scored. If it is, or there is hardendened grease inside, the jaws won’t function well. The jaws open and close by contact with the inside of the chuck housing.
If it is…[Read more]
Thanks for the info but, those are just for the 044, they are not compatible with the 044C. I appreciate your help though.
I see the cutters are different. My bad.
But they look an awful lot like the cutter for a Stanley 45 or a Record 405.
I suggest you buy the cheapest one you can find on eBay and see if it fits.
The problem is where the plane was probably dropped and brazed or welded as a repair.
I have a Stanley #7 with the same issue. They tend to cup when they are welded or brazed back together.
The good news is that the area right behind the mouth isn’t much problem if the rest of the plane is flat, and if it bothers you, it looks quite possible t…[Read more]
Try a small rubber washer between the handle and frame. Look in the plumbing department of your hardware store.
Or try rosin on the threads if there is a violin player in the house.
I just checked, and as I thought, Paul was talking about detempering a blade made from high speed steel (HSS) portable bandsaw blades ( see photo) for cutting steel
I took this photo off his blog post.
From the photo, I’m not clear on whether just the teeth are HSS or the whole blade, or whether it is a bimetallic b…[Read more]
I just looked on eBay.
There was a complete record o43 plough for $32 USD on “buy it now”
Shipping to the USA was $32.it could stand a vinegar bath.
I don’t know if you thought that was expensive, but you’ll now have to find your own bargain.
I bought it.
Great looking bench, Derek.
It strikes me that this is a substantially more massive bench than the one Paul designed this time around. Folks should keep that in mind that his new design is more portable for those folks who tend to move.
I also noticed he laminated his apron from three pieces.
