Spring Line Planes

Have you ever just wanted to make a little molding with out the fuss of the router table, sand paper and setup. Well I have a method for you. Sprung planes.

No setup necessary, no sanding and no setup to get that edge just right. All you need is the plane a workpiece and bench.

Now there are many methods to using these. In my video I show a sticking board. You can remove some stock with a rabbet plane and make it a bit easier.

The wife needs some picture frames and this is the best way I can produce them. I find it easy and fast.

Oh I have also got my grandson his first plane. A wood river #1.

I try to show him a bit of the uses of the hand plane.
I will have to leave all this junk to someone. I hope he finds an interest in it.

I want to thank all you regular guys and Jeff for the planes. You are why I do this!

Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.

    Hey Dave – Great to see the grandkids in the shop with paw paw……they may not get it all right now, but they will in the long run……..very cool!

    And there is a reason why you have those sprung planes and not me, because you get it and can make them come back to life! I never put all that geometry together before, thanks for the lesson.

    And those frames are going to be excellent……….well done my friend…

    The angle of attack, for sprung planes, makes perfect sense….
    Good job explaining it to us neophytes.

    ‘Twas ironic, to learn about and watch low tech, electron free woodworking….
    On my electron dependent, internet enabled 49″ HDTV!!! It felt as if I was in your workshop….
    Thanks for letting me stop in!!!

    Please give my best to your loved ones.
    Carry on….

      Hello Randy!
      Oldest is four. 15 16 years at the earliest. Ill be worn out by then and hoping he will be showing them how to do it.
      There is zen in the old tools. And they still have there place.
      I agree, modern times. I video phone my grand kids at night now. When I was a child that was science fiction on the Jetsons!
      Thank you Randy. Ill tell her…..

Forge a whitty reply.
