    W. E. Hill finger planes and a Tasai chisel

    Sale pending on the planes. Chisel still a available jesse
  4. I’m starting to sell my duplicate tools or ones I don’t use. Car repairs and life dictate this unfortunately. The finger planes are stamped W. E. Hill and sons. And have a brass insert (see pic) sizes : 15mm (but might actually be 16mm, I don’t have a bigger iron to test), 11mm, and 8mm irons. All are slightly convex and In really good condition. I have shown these around to people who I trust to know and the consensus is that they were put out by the Hill shop. Nobody is 100% but close. And I stopped trying to find more info. The Tasai chisel is hammer finish Wakizashi chisel. Meaning it’s made with a slightly heavier build. 24mm and only used 2 or 3 times to test. Email me at waterlooluthier@yahoo.com or IM me here if interested. All reasonable offers considered. Jesse

    gee that STINKS... how to remove scent smells!?

    Baking soda in a box or carefully wiping vinagar might help not on the varnish of course. Both are helpful in other areas to remove odors. Jesse

    Looking for info on these finger planes.

    And yes they look a lot like prestons that I've seen. Not exact but close.

    No not marked unfortunately. But they still have the tempering coloration if that helps at all. The color isnprobably useless for identifying them but I'll add it to the mix anyway.

    Stavanger here is a pic of the inside. Or at least the best I can do. Does it tell you anything?

    Thanks. eBay of all places.
  11. Hi all, I picked up these 4 brass finger planes and wanted to see if the engraving might indeed be correct or just a cool add on. "W.E.Hill & Sons England" and on the cap iron 1762 with a crest. Any info would be appreciated. The back under the iron is filled with a brass plug too. Jesse

    Sandvik product?

    I do know Michael Kocher and he is a good guy. I also have a stash of fine grit sandvik sand plate for those interested. Waterlooluthier@yahoo.com if your interested. Jesse
  13. The set screw is just in the wood. However I pretreated it with superglue and let the screw tap into that instead of raw wood. It seems to help keep it from deteriorating. Jesse
  14. Many years ago I saw M. Darnton knife handles and they were with a set screw. Here is my interpretation of his handles.
