Upon completion of this 2-day class, you will gain experience in the use of the table saw, thickness planer, jointer, bandsaw, and a variety of hand tools. As always, safety is of the utmost importance!

Hand Planes with: Mike Fisher
Beginner

Saturday, November 20, 9 AM - 5 PM

Tools Required: Safety Glasses
Description: You may have an old hand plane that you have inherited or just couldn't resist as a good buy at a garage sale. Then, when you tried to use it, the results left a lot to be desired. All planes, even a brand new one, need tuning and some planes may even need a complete rebuild. If you have a plane that needs some TLC or a new one you need to learn how to tune, this class will show you techniques to make your plane work efficiently. You will start with taking the plane completely apart, evaluating the condition of the parts, and fixing them as needed. You will learn how to sharpen and hone the iron with a provided jig. If you have one, you will need to bring your own bench or block plane of any size. The plane can be rusty, but it should not be so rusted to prevent adjustments. However, we can't refurbish a plane with a cracked body or missing parts. If you have questions about the plane you own/have, bring it into the store when you sign up. We can advise you if your plane will be satisfactory for this class. Also, we can discuss the different kinds of Bench planes, i.e. Jack Plane, Low Angle Block Plane, Jointer Plane, or Smoothing Plane.
