  1. I acquired this with some other tools and lumber in one big lot. The original owner bought it and never got around to using it. 175 + shipping charges. Message me if interested Josh
  2. I resaw a lot of wood with my 1/2" woodslicer, and they last a long while. They are great all around blades too. I use mine for most all my bandsaw work. The lower cost general purpose blades highland sells are also good and resaw pretty well. They just don't last as long.
  3. I purchased these from Patrick Leach awhile back, and never touched them. You will get them in the exact condition I received them in and Patrick only sells top quality used tools. I bought them with the best of intentions of using them, but never got around to it and probably never will. I gave $85 for them, would like to get $75 Josh
  4. Selling this blade for $30. A2 steel, sharp and ready for use.
  5. I am selling my Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Jointer 7 1/2. I purchased it new about a year ago. There is nothing wrong with it, it has been used and shows normal signs of wear. There are a few minor dings on the top of the handle. I am only selling because I like BD planes better so I bought a LN #7. It is sharp and ready to work.
  6. I picked up an item today I am looking for help identifying and trying to figure out what it's worth and who might have a need for it. I have a long standing habit, usually a profitable one :), of picking stuff. It's fun!! This huge and heavy piece of steel is 24"x36"x7/8". It has a 36" starrett rule inlaid in it. The top 1/4" or so appears to be a different material/layer. It's steel but it has a fine grooves running across it, not only the ones u see in the pic but very fine grooves that cover the whole surface. Searched online but couldn't find anything like it. The guy I got from p
  7. I have not, but did some research on how to do it. That is exactly what I did. It has three different nicker lengths, the shortest extends below the bottom of the plane about a 1/16". On softwood it works "ok" on hardwood it is a show stopper. Either it is to long, or it needs to be sharper than it is? Thoughts? Josh
  8. Thanks everyone. Got it all put back together today, and it works pretty well. I kind of feel like the nicker protrudes down to far, it is difficult to get the iron to engage when using the nicker. It sort of rocks on the nicker. Since it has 3 sides, thinking I would file one down a little and see if it works better. Tom, thanks for the help but I found it complete. I just had the nicker out for cleaning.
  9. I would like to be able to cut rabbets with it.
  10. Hello everybody, its been awhile. I have been lurking, just not posting much. Too busy building things in the shop!! I picked up Craftsman(Sargent made) Rabbet Plane a couple weeks ago for a nice price at a local antique store. I paid $20 for it, and 100% complete, first time I have found one complete. Started working to get it tuned up and ran into a few issues. I would appreciate some input. The bottom flattened pretty quickly, there is decent sized shallow area on the side opposite the main reference face. Curious if this will be an issue? I figured since the bottom is 95%+ flat and
  11. I have a list of tools I want to buy, mostly of hand tools but some power tool stuff as well, either save it for the next one on the list or buy it.
  12. Any thoughts on using this joint without screws and ebony plugs? If the joint doesn't see a lot of abuse will it hold well with glue only? I have Never made this joint, but thinking about using them on a small box type project. Don't want any plugs or fasteners but looking for something quicker than dovetails.
  13. It's been awhile since I have been on the forum. Since I finished my Roubo have not had much shop time. Was in bad need for outside dining table and don't want to buy any junk, decided a hefty picnic table made out of left over white oak(knots and sapwood) from my Roubo build would fill the need and be fairly quick build. Found the basic plans online then modified significantly. One of the simplest projects I have done, but turned out to be one of my favorites. The Roubo handled these big boards with ease, it was awesome!
  14. Thanks for all the positive comments everyone! I worked hard on this project so the comments mean a lot. Put on a coat of finish on this morning and just completed one more tonight. Think I am calling this thing done! I will post one more picture once it dries and before I start working on it. I really like the character the hand plane left on the top! Should make for some nice grip as well. Hard to believe it started out as this pile of air dried lumber. That amazement is what keeps me working wood!
  15. i I used a dewalt lunchbox with roller supports on both sides and a helper. It gets u close but it wasn't perfect either.
  16. Just under 2 months start to finish. I didn't think I would get it done this weekend. All the work ahead I did while waiting for hardware made all the difference. After the progress I made yesterday I was determined to finish today if possible. Oil/varnish blend for the finish.
  17. Thanks Tom! I appreciate that.
  18. Well except for leather on the dogs, a little burning to clean up on the ends of the slabs, and a few couple coats of finish. I about done!! This has been the most satisfying, challenging, and just plain hard work of any project I have done to date. I will post some final pictures once I get finish on it. Now guess I need to go mow the yard!
  19. Decided to flatten by hand, mostly because I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. Never flattened anything this large. So I went to work on it with my LN #7. My slabs where in pretty good shape but it was clear that my back slab was lower. So after knocking down some clear high spots. I started working diagonally. After a few passes u can see the color difference on the front of the back slab especially in the middle . It was much lower than the front slab. After a few more passes. The pencil marks are the low spots. Getting closer! And finally a flat bench!
  20. Yeah it was a pretty great feeling. Lot of hard hours and heavy boards to get to that point!! Putting the down time I had waiting on hardware to use has paid off today. Made a ton of progress. Got the chop shaped and the deadman runner installed. Both the chop and deadman are cherry. Waiting to put the leg vise on until I get the top flattened. I don't have the energy left for that today. Maybe tomorrow. Put my shelf in.
