Hand Plane Rejuvenation

Part 1: Saturday, October 21, 9 AM - 5 PM
Part 2: Sunday, October 22, 12 PM - 5 PM

Class Status: Open
Instructor: Mike Fisher
Skill Level: Beginner
Class Size: 4-6
Tools Required: #5 or similar hand plane
Description: Many people have old hand planes that they’ve inherited or just couldn’t resist as a good buy at a garage sale. Then, when they tried to use them, the results left a lot to be desired. That’s because even a brand new plane needs tuning and an old one might need a complete rebuilding. If you have a plane that needs some TLC, this class will show you how to rejuvenate an old plane to make it work like new. You will start with taking the plane completely apart, evaluating the condition, and fixing it. You will need to bring your own plane, preferably a No. 5 or something similar. It can be pretty ratty but it should not be solid rust or have a cracked body or missing parts. In this class we will also cover sharpening the blade and provide you with a jig to make this important part of the rebuild process doable. If you have questions about the plane you have, bring it into the store when you sign up. We can advise you if it is something that will work.
