  • Stanley #8


    Any of you guys have a Stanley #8 jointer-plane? I'm designing a sign for a high-end wood shop, & it will have a "retro" look.
    I need a reference pic taken perfectly broadside, if possible. Everything I see when I "google" Stanley #8 is taken so you can see the the width of the plane as well. This makes a much better photo, but it's not what I need for this project ........

    TR, if you don't have any luck, I have a Stanley #7 Jointer I could shoot some pics of. The #7 is 2 inches shorter & 1/4" narrower but otherwise very similar.

        Don't have a Stanley, but I have a Lie-Nielsen No 8 jointer.

        You have to be a real man to use one of these

              I took that picture specifically so that you could use it!

                Russell .... the pic is perfect ... I can't thank you enough. Here's what the sign it's going on might look like.....
                The red & gray things on the outsides of the dentils will be corbels.
                Customer has approved with some minor changes ...
                I still have to toolpath it. I'll end up handcarving the curved handles on the plane. ... I'm nowhere near smart enough to model that, & besides, it's likely less than 10 minutes of handcarving ....

                Thank you again ...

                    Which is why mine still looks new after 15 years! (It must be that I just take really good care of it. . .)

                      Find movies and TV shows you will love and like-minded fans to talk about them with. Let's end the isolation of watching alone, together.
