It has been some time since I updated my shop. I had received a lot of tools and need to update. I hung some French Cleats and built a few gizmos to hang them in.
Technically speaking, a fixture means it holds something – fixes it to position. If the device and your workpiece are clamped together, call it a fixture. A jig, meanwhile, can refer to a fixture or to an accessory that is positioned or guided by hand. So all fixtures are jigs, but not all jigs are fixtures. Call them gizmo’s and you will be on the safe side.
I had a nice clean shop (cleaner) so it was a perfect chance to mess it up refurbishing a Stanley #4.
It was real bad so I cheated and used another plane for donor parts.
I know the video is a bit long but it has two parts. First we do a shop tour and then look at the ole plane.
Thanks guys. More plane refurbing and history to come.
