According to the hand tool reference site Blood and Gore, the Stanley #194 was manufactured between 1936 and 1958.

If you would like this plane, please leave a comment below with a description of its would-be new home (e.g. on a dusty shelf between my palm sander and tape measure). I’ll give you a bonus entry if you tell me your thoughts on wooden spokeshaves (I’m scheduled to teach a class making a wooden spokeshave at Lee Valley Tools Coquitlam on the 14th). You may enter until the end of Tuesday, February 10. I will then draw a winner at random. Even if you don’t get this tool, remember that there is still much more I want to give away.

DSC_9319Each hole saw attaches to the mandrel quickly and easily via a threaded post and nut, and all the parts can be nested and secured for compact storage with no loose parts.

Overflow, Part XIV

Sander Sitter

The Sander Sitter is essentially a round crepe pad in a tray, mounted on bearings.  The idea is that you set your random orbit sander down in the tray while it is running or spinning down and the crepe cleans the abrasive disc.

I no longer own a 5″ sander, so I’m giving it away.  It is in very good condition and I’ll even dust it off for the winner.

If you would like this 5″ Sander Sitter, please leave a comment below indicating your interest by noon of Thursday, August 29.  To qualify, simply state that you would like the accessory and tell me which of my creations is your favourite.

I will then draw a winner at random.  Even if you don’t get this item, remember that there is still much more I want to give away.
