eBay Coffin Smoother, tuned up / woodworking / tools

Woodworking needs a smoother, and wooden ones are cheap to pick up on auction sites. Here I’m cleaning up and tuning an eBay find that has now been one of my go to smoothers for the past decade!

    I enjoyed this. Really good photography technique, with good view of the work. Thanks.

    Great work. But so hard to finesse I am cured of any attempt to "try this at home’

    Great result, surprised that you repaired and not replaced the wedge.

    Well done Mitch!

    Mitch : I have a smoothing plane same style but no iron sole? Why ?

    10:40 Mitch : I have exactly the same situation (well it looks like ) . Mine shatters (vibrates) terribly when i am using it:(

    I don’t see why cutting the extensions makes a difference ??

    Nicely tuned plane Mitch.
    Takes a bit of patience to fettle the wedge on the worn plane body.
    I have a few that I spent the time on. They feel good in the hand.

    Interesting video Mitch, I have a few and some need this fix or different types of fixes. I have lots of spare beech laying around I will have to give this a go cheers.

    I just love seeing an old tool saved and brought back to its glory. Long life the hand tools! 😀

    I loved watching this. It is so nice to see your attention to the details of that wedge. Great job – thanks for sharing this!
