Rain Plane Day, Causes A Small Sweet Pea Delay.
Say that fast 3 times. Yesterday here at HQ the weather was very grey and wet, so I was able to do some small work, like knock out the boot stripe and start to clean the rub rails. And generally start to clean up and walk around in circles.
But really the day was spent digging through some vintage wood planes I got in a estate sale type deal. And of course they make an awesome display and very cool to play with. And photograph…and do a story on… and hopefully comment on…
Those really are little works of art. I have never seen so many planes displayed in one place. Wherever you scored those it is quite a find.
Are those pulley wheels on the top shelf?
Sweet Pea looks great!
Lots of pully wheels found around the place, and yes, there are more planes in the office. The guy had a huge collection of saws which I missed out on. UGH.
I can only imagine the work those planes must have experienced Great display. Quite a contrast to the bin of Dewalt cordless tools..
Of all the woodworking shop tool that I own, my favorite ones are the planes. I own 4 different types. There’s just something so satisfying about pushing that blade into the wood, seeing delicate curls of wood being shaved off and stopping to check by hand if the surface is ready yet. Power tools are great time savers, but you can’t get the tactile feedback a hand tool offers.
The old wood workers adage… it’s easy to take wood off, harder to put it back on.
Wow what a collection, I’m jelly. Well actually I’m not, as I’m on the downslide and downsizing.
I just sold most of my Panes…..except for one, a 1880s Stanley 113 circular Plane. This plane is a real piece of art and engineering. It can plane a curve up or down, convex or concave.
That is a really cool piece! I worked for Stanley for 35 years and that is something I have not seen before… 👍🏻
The 113 was featured on the Stanley catalogue cover a few years ago.
That saw hanging with the Stanley scraper is an old school stair saw. Used for cutting the dado joint into the stair stringers. The depth of cut is adjustable and you just keep sawing until the blade stops cutting, then chisel out the scrap.
Yeah a router would accomplish this too, but this saw gives you an aerobic workout.
Nice collection of vintage tools, but what I really like is the much easier to read print in todays story and comments.
