I picked this rosewood jointer up at a flea market. It was missing the tote, wedge and blade. When a blade came along, i found a piece of maple and had at it.

Tools and Woodworking for fun

Here are a few things I’ve been working on. All of these are listed for sale. There are also several I’ve made in the past I’ve listed. I hope to add a milling machine to help with the builds.
I’ve started an update for the build. The godaddy website builder has been giving me some problems so its not as far along as I’d like. Stop back, I’ll be updating it.

The weather just doesn’t seem to want to break. I’m looking forward to some spring thaw.
I’ve posted a nice restorable Jointer for sale, https://timetestedtools.wordpress.com/tools-for-sale-2/
I know several have inquired about a jointer.
I picked up a nice Siegley #2 recently for my collection. I believe it’s a type 5. I plan to post on my website soon. I also picked up a Sargent #3411 in nice shape. This is a type 1. I resisted the Sargent Transitionals for as long as I could. They just seem to call my name.
Please join in the conversation on the tool forum. There are lots of woodworking sites to chose from, but very few dedicated to the collecting of vintage tools. http://timetestedtools.forumchitchat.com/
Thanks for looking

I built this out of a Stanley #4 base. The base was broke at the rear handle bolt. Its bedded at 55 degrees. It has a SW cutter.
The wood is locust (stained with ebony) and bloodwood.
The cap bolt is through the wood with 3 countersunk nuts on the back side. Don’t ask why 3, I don’t really know.
The finish is a quick coat of blo with a few hours to dry and a few coats of Shellac.
At this point I’d estimate I have about 12 hours into this project with the 2 days I have into it.
Thanks for looking.

I hope everyone had a tremendous holiday and I hope you are looking forward to a New year.
I’ve added several planes since my last post. Take a look. Here is a preview.
Along with a nice #3 as found project smoother.
