Well, at least one of them.
Stole a little shoptime today to arrange the plane drawer a bit. I also got 2 more ebayers in the mail today. A super nice type 18 #6 in the box (gave box to wifey for her collection) and a type 16 #3 also near mint. The LV LA block came a couple of days ago. Here they are with Robin's #4 and #5. The group takes a pretty nice picture.
Matthew Dworman showed me a pic of his storage. I really liked the simple clean look of it and I have transfered much the same thing into my newly dubbed "plane drawer". Everything is just laying in the drawer for now. I'll screw the dividers to the base when I get the rest of the goodies in there and arrranged just right.
I know, I know...the Record looks like a step child amounst these Stanley's.
I have a couple more coming...yet another near mint #5 from the bay and the LV LA Jack (HA blade is already in the drawer) so those account for the holes with no occupants. I made some rabbeted blocks to hold my LV 24" straight edge on the rear of the drawer itself.
I decided to store my bench accessories in this drawer also as one kinda leads to the other.
I cut some little spacers for the heels of the #3 and #4 so the totes would not be against the divider.
The #6 barely fits in this drawer so I guess I'll never need a #7 or #8...lol...ya right!! I notched the front divider to fit the toe.
Anyhow, pardon my newbie excitement again but this plane deal is pretty cool. Where is the bottom of this darn slope anyway??? I think I'm about to find it, for a while at least. I had saved money to buy a PM stationary mortiser but I seem to have blown it all on planes and such like Neander stuff. I have a bench top Delta mortiser anyway so I think I'd rather have the planes.
Ya'll have a Merry Christmas!!!
