    Old Shipwreck found on beach Orkney

    Just a warning, I use surfshark VPN and it messes with the BBC website something rotten, and that's in the UK. I fairness to it, it's fine with everything else, but I have to turn it off to look a the BBC website. Even if it set to a UK server it detects a VPN and plays up. I'm really saying...

    Any Archdale machines/stories/photos out there?

    This fellah on youtube has an Archdale radial drill in his shop which he uses quite a bit. He's an agricultural engineer in Yorkshire and his videos are well worth watching in themselves.

    DIY Welder!

    That's true unless you are wanting to tack anything thin (under about 3 mm), in which case a MIG would be better. A stick welder will just tend to burn holes. Edit: I've just looked back on the thread and realised Porker has already posted this info.

    Black & Decker smoothing plane

    Neither did I, which is why I asked the question. And there's nothing on the internet to suggest that they ever did.

    Black & Decker smoothing plane

    Thanks for all your replies, most illuminating. Glad someone remembers B&D making planes, I thought from the lack of info I might have a one off. @joshvegas, you are completely correct, looking at it more closely it is a paramo no 10 down to the "no 10" cast into the base in front of the forward...

    Black & Decker smoothing plane

    I have an old plane sitting around with no blade. Not really sure if it's a longish smoothing plane or a shortish jack plane. The only brand markings on the plane is the hex B&D on the lever plate. I finally decided to get a blade, but cannot find any trace of Black & Decker ever producing a...
