    Looks like a Stanley No 4, a Brilliant, and a no-name. Any of them any good?

    And a lie-Nielsen LN271 small router plane, which is the only one I attempted to use.



    Found a sharpening thing under some junk. Is that anything?




    Next set of questions will be on chisels and sharpening technique
    Lyricnz,
    As Paige said, they can all be made to work, it just depends how keen you are.
    I would start with the Stanley Number 4,
    Search on the forum, or the Net there is literally a million ton of information out there about what an how too do it.

    Cheers Matt.

    OK, I took the Stanley #4 apart to give it a bit of a clean, and check it out. According to the Stanley identifier at How to Identify Stanley Hand Plane Age and Type (Type Study Tool) | Wood and Shop and it suggests it's a "Results: Type 19 Stanley Bailey Hand Plane (1948-1961)" (except mine says Made in Australia - not USA?)

    Will give it a clean, see how it comes up.

    Hi all,

    Calling for topic ideas in general from both the regular cadre of people and anyone else that would like to join us on zoom for some general catch up.

    For those that wonder what it's all about, it is 40 minutes on zoom, putting faces to names, getting time to chat about the weekly topic, ask for help, or just chat.

    We have gone from woodwork to fish ponds to gardening all inside 40 minutes so it can be an interesting ride at time.

    So ideas for topics, not just this week so post a selection

    Cheers
    Phil

    That site only dates USA manufactured planes. Made in England/Canada and Australia Stanleys are much harder to date against a flowchart.

    When just starting out getting the hand plane set up, don't go down the rabbit warren of needing to get the base flat to within a micron. As long as it's not noticeably out of flat, concentrate on getting the mating surface between the chip-breaker and back of blade neat, and the blade as sharp as you can get it.

    Simon, Lance's is good advice. You can spend an awful lot of time flattening the sole of your plane to the last micron!
    A general clean of the beast by dismantling it will give you a good idea of how these are designed, how the bits fit together and what they do, or are supposed to do!

    Flattening the back of the blade and getting it sharp is the more exciting part! I have to say that it can also be a bit frustrating to know when sharp is sharp. As you practice your technique will improve and you will soon enjoy the "swish" of a sharp blade lifting a thin and nicely curving shaving.

    Oh! BTW is also teaches a degree a patience but it also gives a nice sense of achievement when everything falls into place!

    Cheers,
    Yvan

    PS ...and don't forget to poke your tongue out the right way throughout the process!

    I am possibly a definite maybe.
    When you are dead you donít know that you are dead. You feel no pain, everyone else feels the pain. Itís the same thing when you are stupid.
