Still waiting on Spring 2015

 

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

A #4 infill Smoother. Shop made

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.

    A Union #4

    Here is a Union #4 I cleaned up for my #4 collection. If anyone has a good reference for Union planes, I’ve been researching for a while and haven’t found much. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    A type 14 Stanley #5C restored.

    I don’t have any before pictures, because this beauty came with a type 20/21 frog with the folded lateral, so I wasn’t even going to do anything with it. I changed my mind more just to see how much work it would take, since it was a jack anyhow, I figured it would be ok. I thought it was strange that it had rosewood, but I didn’t think to hard on it.

    On closer inspection though, I found this wonderful type 14. Based on the broken tote tip, I would say it was dropped and the original frog busted.

    I had the correct frog, so its all back to normal now.

    I didn’t do the tote repair, its an old repair which seems very solid. I just sanded it out and refinished, leaving the history intact.
