SuperTune! The Lie-Nielsen Block Plane – Part 1

SuperTune! The Lie-Nielsen Block Plane – Part 1

Hello Everyone!

This is Episode 26 and is another in my SuperTune series. Originally this was going to be one video – I thought “small plane, small video” – but it turned out to be much more involved than I first anticipated, so I’ve split it into two parts. Part 2 is almost done, so you won’t have to wait long.

Some of it is more of the same as the No 4 series, but there’s quite a bit of new stuff.

Video Production Notes:

Process is improving significantly and there’s incremental improvements in quality. Although I’m not yet 100% happy, it’s getting better.

So far I’ve spent 61 hours for both parts 1 & 2 and it’s 41 days (down from 53) since the last post and I was able to work on 24 of them, averaging 2 hours 32 minutes per session. Not quite the 35 days I was aiming for, but not too bad.

Time expended to make each minute of video has improved; from 2 hours 8 minutes to 1 hour 46 minutes.

Your comments are most welcome; keep them coming!

    Well, in getting this out of an old plane, it makes me wonder why there isn’t a slot in the top of this threaded piece so you can just unscrew it?????

    The sound is too low.

    Great video once again Mr. Linn! One question: would using nylon soft jawed pliers work better for taking off the brass screws than wrapping them in brass wire? I have one for adjusting brass set screws and they work well.
