Default FS 1st of the new year planes and 30% off the rest of my planes.

30%0 Off planes of all sorts.

The plow plane is almost finished. A few more refinements to work out. You can
see the pics here

I have several first of the New Year planes.
http://www.knight-toolworks.com/web_...yearplanes.jpg
Right now I have two pocket planes that is a 1.5" iron they are about 5" long
less then 2" wide and 2" tall with nice short irons so you can use them one
handed
http://www.knight-toolworks.com/web_...urpleheart.jpg
One in ebony and one in zircote both woods are getting hard to find. I have two
small finish planes like this one
http://www.knight-toolworks.com/web_...nerosewood.jpg
That are 7.5" long a bit less then 3" wide and 2" high with short irons. I have
one like the pic above and a bubinga one. All of these are dated numbered and
signed. I have enough ebony to make two of the finish planes if interested.
Email me if your interested in these one of a kind planes.


New marking knives and hammers are now available.
http://www.knight-toolworks.com/web_.../newknives.jpg
made by CHESTER TOOLWORKS LLC and they are made from precision ground 3/32"
thick O1 tool steel and are 5/16" wide. Snakewood, East Indian Rosewood,
Brazilian Tulipwood, or Gabon Ebony. 44.00 for the snakewood and shipping 39.00
and shipping for the other woods.
New plane adjusting hammer
http://www.knight-toolworks.com/web_.../newhammer.jpg CTW hammers are
designed specifically for adjusting the blades and wedges of wooden hand planes
and infill hand planes. The polished brass and Lignum Vitae head is weighted
toward the brass striking end and is designed so that it won't mar or mushroom
the blade like steel hammers. The Lignum end is of a smaller diameter and is
used to tap the toe or heel of the plane without leaving dent marks. It should
also be the end used for tapping wedges tight since it won't damage the heel of
the wedge. Handles are individually shaped from Quartersawn White Ash with the
grain oriented to prevent the runout which weakens many other hammer handles.
45.00 plus shipping. New plane idea's

I also have new tools almost ready for beta testing email me if interested. A
plow plane a side rabbet plane based on a nice old design and a set of T&G
planes.



Knight Toolworks in conjunction with Harrolson at www.japanesetools.com have had
these custom made Japanese irons made for western planes. These are the first
and only hand forged/laminated Japanese irons that will fit a regular wedged
plane. They are 2" wide and 5.25" long and are a bit over " thick. They will
drop into any knight Toolworks plane that uses a 2" iron with just a little
mouth and wedge adjustment. They are made from blue steel (holds and edge longer
then pretty much any tool steel on the market) and wrought iron. I believe these
to be the best irons out there over O-1 and A-2 irons. They will hold an edge
longer then A-2 they will get sharper they will leave a deeper/cleaner surface
and they make the plane easier to use. They will really help with tearout too.
They are hand stamped with Shizu Tani (tranquil valley) Shipping is 5.00
including insurance.

All planes now have finger grips and brass set screws to adjust the fit of the
iron.
Rock maple
Purpleheart Cocobolo at an extra cost is also available.
Padouk
Please check my page for all my planes www.knight-toolworks.com


I also have razee jointers and jack planes and scrubs.
http://www.knight-toolworks.com/wooden.htm
I have great looking/feeling coffin smoothers
http://www.knight-toolworks.com/graphics/coffin.jpg
All planes now have setscrews to center the irons in the body and make adjusting
the iron easy.

All planes are sanded/planed and finished with a special oil and wax finish.

Darn, Steve! It's been less than two hours since I resolved NOT to buy
every interesting new plane that came along!

And the really cool bubinga coffin smoother that you built me during your
November sale just got it's first workout Friday afternoon.

Nope. Not quite yet. I have to have just a little more self control than
that!

Maybe next week. Or later this.

irons too. I don't make ebony planes too often anymore. ziricote is pretty rare
too (G)

Alternatively, you can just keep it on the coffee table when you're
not using it. Steve's planes are sure decorative enough.

Well, yeah, but there's the grandcritter to consider. He's not old enough
to respect a blade that sharp.

Worse yet, he's likely to try to mimic grandpaw and take a few
shavings off the coffee table.

Good point.

I wish my old one had them. (Hmmm, I could do that myself, couldn't I?
What size do you use? Spring-loaded type?) Add a few pair of those to
my tab, will ya, Steve?


http://www.knight-toolworks.com/web_...urpleheart.jpg
What other woods do you use on the jointers in a razee (AKA Moby Dick)
style without inlay? Got one with a Japanese iron? Is this the big-un
you referred to last week?

finish,with time off in the middle for life to intervene.

I wish someone gave me the idea sooner (G) they are easy to add. I use 8/32 it
seems to be a good size and does not stand out like a sore thumb. I drill a 1/8"
hole then tap it with my cordless drill

no I have not got a pic of one of those yet and a Japanese iron is too small.
hope to have one done this week.

That's OK, I can wait. As Tom Selleck says "The oxen are slow, but the
earth is patient."
