Hi guys,

Bought a tool box full of tools for £40 a while ago & the following planes were in it!

Image

The smallest of the planes doesn't plane as it appears that the previous owner has sharpened the cutting edge in a way that the back of the blade hits before the cutting edge?!?

Image

Any guides as to how to sharpen these?

Thanks in advance!

Get the model number and buy a replacement blade,they are cheap as chips. I grind mine down myself by eye and couldn't tell you the exact grinding angle tbh. You can get local places that'll sharpen chisels and plane irons fairly cheaply as well.

This was the only plane I couldn't make the model number out of! Got my chisel grinding stones I could use I guess. Just seen on YouTube typically use 3 stones then leather....

The blade looks to be upside down.

My block plane only has the indentations on one side so in my case it'd be impossible.

Good shout Rorschach! Turned round and planes lovely... easy fix!

Haven't used a block plane before so was none the wiser if it was supposed to be like that!

:thumbleft: Jolly good.
Now see if you can fix my jack plane for me! haha. The mouth is too narrow from the factory I am sure, really can't be arsed to file it out but going to have to at some point since it gets clogged so easily when rough surfacing boards.

I've had to tweak all of my new planes in the past, filing away the back of the throat so that it aligns properly with the frog.

No problems with the frog side of the mouth it seems, just narrow in general, when the blade is out enough to take a cut there is hardly any room for the chip.

It's an adjustable mouth on that plane by the look. Undo the front knob a bit, and there is either a little lever there to move it or it slides somehow.

Yeah - adjustable mouth. Managed to figure that out. Nice little plane which has a decent weight to it. Unsure if this is a Stanley like the others.

Could be a Stanley but that design is copied almost exactly by so many these days. I have a near identical version that cost less than a tenner and is a lovely little plane.

I love old tools! These will be going into my wood working shop once I build it!
