THANK YOU! concise without all of the uh, um, and ahhh, of other videos. Not boring like the dull techno dudes.
Hi , I just wanted to let you know how helpful I found this plane setting tutorial to be. I have been messing around with my stanley bailey for months. Now it works fine, even better than I would have hoped for. Most Grateful…
Thanks Rag n Bone! Great skills 🙌🏼
What happens when the adjusting nut comes out and never wants to go back onto the bolt?
I learned everything I needed from this single video. Thank you very much. Liked and subscribed
I tested my blade by dropping a hair onto it and it split in 2
thanks, much appreciated
Cheers, thank you.
Awesome video! great for teaching resource thank you!
Thanks for posting this, very easy to follow, very helpful!
I used a belt sander to speed up the flattening
Brilliant, I’m very new to woodwork, so thank you for making it easy on an old female person 🤗
Amazing very informative video ive learnt alot about hand planes bravo lad be blessed
That was really useful, straightforward, comprehensive… and no complicated or expensive ideas… thank you… I’m going into my shed to reform my planes today!!
Very useful video, thanks. Thanks.
Easy to follow . Very useful
What do you do when a staple or nail gouges the plane sole?
Thanks.. That was a great run through with the planes
Thanks soooooo much for this. I’m a hobbyist and you explained much more than I thought there was . Cheers mate and thanks again.
All the necessary information without unnecessary explanation. Thank you
3:22 — pew pew pew! take that, rebels!
Bless you, great job really.
Very very helpful. Thank you
That was great, many thanks!
Hey I just noticed…..what a great site as well Thanks Again..
great video, tons of useful information with minimal fluff. thank you sir
Great work. Only thing I would have added is take the frog out and clean the area under.
good honest instruction, not flash, gets to the point, easy to understand, loved it!
Brilliant video. Exactly what I wanted.
4:40 – Another (more fundamental) cause of jamming is for the chip breaker to "make contact" with the iron away from the chip breaker’s front edge. The angle at which its bevel is ground affects this. You want the very, VERY front edge of the breaker to be the first part of it that touches the iron, and when you have that you can put it insanely close to the tip of the iron and you won’t get jamming. This is the preferred arrangement when you’re setting up the iron for smoothing. If your chip breaker is incorrectly ground and you’re getting jams, then you can ALSO alleviate them by opening up the mouth, but that detracts from the quality of your operation for smoothing.
To get the breaker ground this way, flatten it in the way the video describes, but hold the back end of the breaker very low – even lower than the surface of your sharpening stones if you can. This removes more material back away from the edge and ensure that material isn’t there to make first contact. Anyway, the rule of thumb I’ve heard is to have the throat about double the shaving thickness you want. So if you want 0.001" shavings, you can go with as little as 0.002" throat. That’s a WHOLE HECK of a lot less than 2mm. 🙂 See Paul Sellers’s videos on plane setup for more on this.
Thanks, very informative. Only had my Stanley plane 45 Years and now know how to set it up properly.
Well, damn….my cheap planes don’t have all those fancy adjustments on them.
Still a very informative video.
excellent presentation on basics of sharpening a plane! THANKS!!
Great job! I bought a download on how to rehab a handplane by Christopher Schwartz, the Jimi Hendix of handplanes, and followed it to a tee, but still couldn’t get the plane to cut properly. That’s not a criticism of Schwartz, I must’ve been not adjusted something properly. I watched your video and it solved the problem in a few minutes, it cuts like a dream! Thanks for posting! Mark
Thanks for this. A very clear and concise explanation. 👍🏼
What an excellent video. Thank you.
Great video. Thanks for sharing!!!
Great video. Straight forward and to the point. Thanks!
Very useful. I got Stanley 5 I think and it is all out of line
Great tutorial,,,, simple yet tons of info,,,,
I was great lesson… Today. .
No waste of time at all. Straight to the point. Everything one needs to know about a wood plane is here in this video! Thanks a lot!
Nice, straightforward, fast-paced overview. Just the refresher I needed. Thanks!
watching you using your well setup planes at the end was worth the watch alone, look at that smooth action, lovely!
Very good video. Thank you very much.
Thank you for this straight-to-the-point video. I recently purchased a cheap and poorly made Stanley #5 (looks a lot like your Record). I’ve been flattening the sole, 10 minutes at a time, over the past few days (that is, working it for ten minutes x4 or 5 times each day). I’m glad I started with 80 grit sandpaper! The high spot is straight down the center, and the area around the mouth was also quite high. I’m finally getting close to perfectly flat. It’s been tempting to use a lot of force, but I’m letting the weight of the plane do the work.
I hadn’t taken a good look at the knife until today, and it’s filled me with a bit of despair. It’s not straight (the edge is irregular and not at a right angle) when held against a square.
Excellent walk-thru. Thank you.
I am new to this at 63 years young. Thanks for the video. I have two old ones from my father in law, a sargent and one smaller one without a name. I suspect they are antiques.
I recommend this Woodworking Chamfering Trimming Planer: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08THFTW9G . The tool performs as hoped. I have used it on some small projects to add a finished look. It’s well built and should get a lot of use. Great value.
