  1. Do you know where I could find parts for a No. 4 plane it was given to me with nothing but the base and frog

  2. You can get a brace bit and old Stanley block planes for less than five dollars. And they both still have a modern use.

  3. Don't really get people disliking this video. The guy's just trying to help people. Is that offensive or something? weird.

  4. Had to stop the the video..Unfortunately I have had poor results with the 13 dollar Harbor Freight Planes..I thought it was me..I love most of their stuff.
    I have found that their chissels are fairly good quality. I actually use a file/rasp to sharpen them. For the new. A chisel usually has to parts to the blade…at the very end the is very small angled part..it probably a16th" and that has to sharpened every so often. If not careful the chisel can be ruined if this straightened.

  5. I have a Stanley plane, similar in size to the first plane you ever purchased. It is older than 1940 or 1945. What size is it? No. 2? etc. It is real nice and belonged to my great uncle, I'm 72, so I know that it is real old. I almost ruined it when I was 10. What is the best grind angle for the blade? Thanks.

  6. Yep… pacific northwest seems to be a very difficult location to find decent old tools. I've gotten very lucky to find a good old Rockwell tablesaw for 25 that just needed a belt and a Stanley 151 (old made in England) for $2 that looked like it's only been used a few times and never actually been sharpened or had the sole trued up(both the bevel and the sole had factory style grind markings)

    But man… finding old chisels (that haven't had their wood handles beaten off and turned in to metal chisels poor things*) or planes are such a pain. Old Stanley plane, oh that's a collectable so priced as a valuable collectors item. *sigh

  7. This question is probably not so relevant for you and most of your main audience, but I'm kind of wondering: is there any alternative for the places that you mention in Europe? If you're from the mainland (not UK) Europe, I'm having a hard time finding tools. There are flea markets and such, but "state fairs" are to my knowledge not a common thing here.
    Very nice and informative video!

  8. James I want to say thank you, your videos have been a great help. I am 40yo medically retired vet with hardly any money and a lot of time on my hands. I am working more hybrid because I do use power saws but I started hand tools because I am working out of a 10’ x 12’ mower shed with limited space and hand tools fit this space better and your information, and your energy has really helped me

  9. Just an FYI everyone who tries looking them up, ReTool has no website to visit.
    Seems like you have to lie in the Nashville, TN area to check them out.
