    Dust collection

    Usually, the longer you can go with the biggest pipe will result in the best result.

    Stanley 7c jointer plane type 7. How rare?

    Here is a link to a Stanley Bench Plane site that will help with information on your plane, but it sounds like you've already done some research to determine that it is a type 7. As for selling it, I've always found that it's only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it. Some want it for the collectible value, no matter what shape and others would rather have it cleaned up.

    Beginner building workbench

    Go for what the design calls for. Just cut the mortises first and carefully make sure that the edges are square. You can always sneak up on the cuts to each tenon to match.

    Tool stand

    This is on wheels and gets moved around, just about 2 1/2 times the size.

    Tool stand

    I have so many benchtop tools and such a little space (or so it seems) that I built a flip top tool bench that is much larger than the individual stands. I got the idea and modified the one in Wood magazine #220 (Sept '13). It's served me well as I have my 10-20 belt sander, Rigid oscillating sander, 6" bench jointer, 12 1/2" planer, 1" belt sander and 4x36" combo sander all attached. I had to do a lot of calculating on evening the weight and workflow patterns, but it's been great and has helped free up a lot of bench (and floor) space.

    Buying a router plane.

    I have an old Stanley 71 1/2 that I refurbished and only have the 1/2" spear point blade. Maybe I've been missing out on a fence and smaller blades, but ignorance is bliss. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    HELP need repair ideas!

    Looking as closely as I can at the pictures, it appears that there is a skirt around the edge. You should be able to glue the boards as others have suggested, at least it will be closer than it currently is. The rest of the top appears to be in rough shape for a table as well. Were it me, I would repair the corner as well as possible and sand the whole top flat and smooth. You can always stain the "patina" back in. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    Got a birthday card this week that says: Measure twice, cut once, say crap three times, go back to lumber store. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood."

    Gaming Table

    I like the leg design too, but the dimensions that he's giving sound more like a desk.
  11. I'll have to search through all my magazine indexes, but I recall a plan for a box for a benchtop mortiser that included a lot more features than just a stand. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    I'll take it off your hands for $2 and you can double your profit. I've used Evapo-Rust on several Disstons that I've found and it works great. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    Help my friend get started...

    He may be interested more in scroll sawing or turning. That would go off in a completely different line of tools. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    Help my friend get started...

    I guess I don't have enough information to reply well. What kind of projects is he going to build? I may be stepping on some toes, but I'm one that feels you only buy a tool that is justified by the project. When I started out as a kid, I only had hand tools and made some decent ones.
