    I just purchased 300 gramophone needles for 17.00 USD. Amazing. .05 cents apiece. I think I can make a few!

    Thanks everyone for your help. I will probably receive one and also make one.

    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?

    It is pricey too, $165. The metal tang at the top throws me off as well.

    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.

    Thanks Matt, I think varnish would be longer lasting than oil.

    Hi Brett
    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.

    Thanks for the help. I am getting a “new to me” chip breaker. It should come on Saturday. Sue

    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. Sue

    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.
