I just purchased 300 gramophone needles for 17.00 USD. Amazing. .05 cents apiece. I think I can make a few!20 November 2015 at 2:10 pm #132564

how do you sharpen the nail?18 November 2015 at 2:43 am #132509
Thanks Scott! I figured someone here would know. I guess it will not go on my tool wish list.

It looks so much better. Amazing how some thing will clean up! How did you clean it up? Vinegar for the metal?18 November 2015 at 2:18 am #132502
It is pricey too, $165. The metal tang at the top throws me off as well.14 June 2015 at 7:36 pm #127751
I am humbled and inspired. Good techniques are proven by time and spread through out the world. He does so much with what he has and even does embellishment on the handle in the first video. The embellishment reminded my of cloud lifts on Greene and Greene furniture which are reported to have be an inspiration from asia. I too have a 150 pound no-maring quick release clamp just like him. Works like a charm! I will checkout his other videos.30 May 2015 at 5:29 am #127401
Thanks Matt, I think varnish would be longer lasting than oil.21 April 2015 at 1:43 pm #126618
Your all oak board looks great!.21 April 2015 at 1:41 pm #126617
Thanks for the advice. I have to make a run to a big box store for mineral oil so I will add acetone. The sun is finally out so this can be an outdoors in the grass job. I have a 5 in one tool so I think I will be good to go. Thanks again.31 July 2014 at 11:39 am #59929
Thanks for the help. I am getting a “new to me” chip breaker. It should come on Saturday. Sue29 July 2014 at 2:26 am #59844
Thank you Edfly and Criag. I am posting some pictures of my plane.
The first is a side view, the depth adjustment knob is about as far out as it will go. It has J. Rippen imprinted at the base of the handle. I don’t know if this is the owner or maker.
The second shows a side view with the blade still out about 1/32 of an inch with the adjustment knob as the first picture shows. The third shows the cap removed and the blade in place. The fourth shows the blade and chip breaker put together.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Sue15 July 2014 at 11:45 am #59436
I was recently in an indigenous village in the amazon river basin. They used a lot of the scarf/splice joints. They had very limited tools and an abundance of dense wood (we call that exotic wood). The joints were used in the rafters and even the ridge pole as well as benches.4 April 2014 at 1:36 pm #48160
