    Re: Old Tools

    A great example of old tools is a hand drill and a two-handed saw. My always used them and every time I had to repair something, I had to sweat a lot!

    Latest Ebay purchase:



    I fanced something a bit longer for jointing long boards (currently building some shelves in inch thick oak). Long metal planes are well over £100 for anything that's not a pile of rust. Picked this up for £30.
    It's in great condition; the mouth and horn of the handle have been repaired at some point, with a decent match on the wood. Blade has plenty of meat and came in good condition without nicks or weird camber.
    I gave it a couple of licks on a piece of whitewood and managed a pretty much spot on straight edge with minimal effort.

    Re: Old Tools

    thats very nice.

    I've been using my old Stanley plane a lot recently and not just for planing.
    Dunno if people know but the cast steel has a perfect 90 degree edge, so I use it for aligning saw blades.

    Indeed - The usual trick is using the plane to lay one board face atop another's edge, to align everything for marking out dovetails. Not sure I'd want a saw blade rubbing along the side of my plane, though... might damage it.

    Re: Old Tools

    I make furniture in the woods from old school hand tools, my favourite tool has to be the pencil sharpener as I call it (chair makers rounding tool)

    This is the first chair I made.



    I then moved on to a much bigger project and this is what materialised.
