Re: Brown & Sharpe Surface Grinder Rebuild by Philip Marcou

You can get a manual from Lathes (http://www.lathes.co.uk) for that model and in fact almost any machine under the sun......

Three more planes

Just pictures of two S20A's and a J20A. I have used Walnut on my planes for the first time. I found a lump of wood in the building here and on closer inspection it turned out to be Walnut- I guess it...

Re: Brown & Sharpe Surface Grinder Rebuild by Philip Marcou

Ian, I can get you information on how to get a manual for that machine- I obtained one via the internet so I will have to re find the information.
But right now let me say that gear oil is entirely...

Re: First there were two now there is one....

Peter, the base already exists in the form of a metal construction with curved wooden "cladding": the customer merely wanted the original top replaced by a bigger one.
I think any plane should be...

Re: First there were two now there is one....

.......the edges and end grain were dealt with as shown in the pictures and even the quarter sawn (most of the seven boards were q/s) came out in shavings . The Kress jig saw is one of those...

First there were two now there is one....

I refer to those S50NA's I made, the ones without adjusters. I am actually keeping one for myself because it is A PRETTY DAMNED FINE PLANE (and not too expensive, ha ha). Here's why: the landlord (he...

Re: New model made

I think the green arrow is misleading-the blade can easily be tapped from above or from the front depending on preference. I think the pictures show this and I used that hammer which use for...

Re: New model made

The mouth is not adjustable-the gap is about 5thou. The blade IS adjustable-but without the aid of a screw adjuster. The whole idea was to come up with a less costly plane. BUT, I am not going to...

Re: New model made

Hi Derek,
better you explain it, otherwise I might add confusion. Anyway, I will grind one of them tomorrow so I can compare them. Remember: it is a comparatively thick (5mm) blade and heavyish too,...

Re: New model made

Scott,
I think you are correct and that is why I said I was "in two minds about it" earlier on. It was a suggestion by Derek Cohen and I think I will just grind one of the two blades to confirm...

Re: New model made

Hi Scott,
if you lived around the corner I would send one plane for you to hammer on.
What do you think about grinding a horizontal bevel on the blade top?

New model made

In a move verging on rykenological heresy (new term coined for lovers of hand planes) I have produced two smoothers which are ADJUSTERLESS....
The body is almost identical to the S50A or S55A and...

Re: Here's one with a different wood.....

I machine all parts myself as required. Heat treatment of blades is done by a specialist company to a high standard. I buy the standard 4mm screws for the handle base and the 3mm cap screws for the...

Here's one with a different wood.....

I used a pure bred New Zealand wood for this S20A. It is called Black Maire , is really hard and dense and works beautifully. Sort of looks like English Oak in colour and has a smell like African...

Re: A few plane pictures

Here's one with Bedrock style sides just for Okami. The wood is Australian Wattle.An ordinary straight knurl on the brass knobs goes well with that plane.

A few plane pictures

Here are some recently completed planes, much the same as others seen here except for a new wood type and a different approach to the infill on the M12. The new wood is Australian Wattle, which...

Here is the rest of the S50A . The wood is Rhodesian Teak and Wenge is the contrasting dark wood on the knob. Adjustable mouth from 20 thou down to about 4 thou. A superior plane, which is to be...

Sorry Shawn, I did not photo the build process, other than a photo of the two rings as they were parted off some brass tubing.
