LostArtPress on InstagramOur moleskin work vest is now available. Made from U.K. moleskin and stitched here in Cincinnati. These are soft, warm and hard-wearing.These planes are fitted with three adjustments. Adjustment nut or screw enables cutter to be fed out or in. Lateral adjustment lever gives correction if one corner projects more than the other. Mouth adjustment screw is used to enlarge or reduce width of mouth. Before it is used the frog fixing screws must be slackened and tightened again afterwards. In addition the back iron can be set to any requited distance from the cutting edge. For rough work this should be about a/16 in. and as close as you can get it for finishing difficult grain. In the Record “stay-set” back iron the screw need not be undone when sharpening. Note the thin part of the sole behind the mouth, enabling the frog to support the cutter regardless of the mouth width. In some cheap, faulty makes this is not done and cutter is unsupported when mouth is fine, causing plane to chatter on hard wood. — from “The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years: Volume I” published by Lost Art Press #The_WoodworkerTexture describes the roughness or smoothness of the wood to the touch and visually. Smoother woods are generally more lustrous in appearance whereas open-pored woods are duller. Oaks and other hardwoods with similar growth patterns such as chestnut and ash (image 1), which collectively are known as coarse or uneven textured woods, make ring-porous wood. In the spring, the tree lays down a ring of open-pored wood well-suited to transporting liquids and, during the summer, they create denser, less-porous wood. The difference in the ability of spring wood and summer wood to take in and conduct water is well demonstrated when the two types of wood are dyed as part of the wood finishing or polishing process. The open-pored spring wood soaks up wood dye more readily and generally darkens more than the summergrown wood darkens. The spring growth of some timbers is so coarse the pores are readily visible – red oaks are a good example. Semi-diffuse-porous or semi-ringporous woods like walnuts show some differentiation in the pore size between spring growth and summer-grown wood in which the spring growth exhibits larger pores than summer-grown wood, but the borderline between one zone and the next is blurred (image 2). — from “Cut & Dried: A Woodworker’s Guide to Timber Technology” by Richard Jones #Cut_and_Dried
