well, heres the next installment:

https://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/gallery/det ... age_id=267

the beech has all been resawn and is stickered waiting for 8 weeks.

I`m then going to thickness (just until I get a even boards, i.e. not to final size) and grade all the lengths and leave stickered for another 2 weeks (whilst I`m in `merica)

I`ll then machine all stock to final size.

Most boards are well oversized in both thickness and width which should give me plenty of scope for any movement. (I made sure that some of the wider boards are stacked at the bottom i.e. have most weight bearing down to try to discourage movement)

regards

Yep, that's a gloat. :roll: Piccy size vunderbar here. Veritas are Canadian (tsk tsk) :roll: . In the States you'll probably want to hunt down the nearest Woodcraft, be prepared to go "Gasp" and have the credit card wrestled from your hand by the LOYL by all accounts. :lol:

Cheers, Alf

Did you notice that Adam has also joined them now?

The consolation you have is that nobody no this board, or in the world, knows more about/has more planes than you. :lol:

Well, Father Christmas seemed to come a bit early for me this year....Mini-gloat on behalf of Tony as well here, it seems work were auctioning surface plates from the (soon-to-be but now closed) engineering department for the princely sum of £2/each. I decided to buy 2, and when Tony got a sniff of this, encouraged me to get a third. So Tony, your plate is the one on the right! Not that I need either of mine now I've just replaced all my planes, but I thought I'd keep 'em just in case. By the way, I reckon there's at least 5-10 more plates in their, retailing for about that price, so if anyone wants one, send me a PM, I absolutely cannot guarentee you'll get one, I reckon the chances are <10% as all the staff are redundent, so theres nobody left to evaluate my bids, and they are getting really funny about disposal policies and the like. But theres always a chance. As for picking them up, either Surrey/Sussex, or oneo f the woodworking shows.

Bet the postman was giving himself a hernia when he had to deliver that load!!!!

As to my avatar-well, there was critism of my previous avatar for being boring. So don't blame me (or my Clifti :lol: )
(Personalized avatars-they're the new mobile phone ring-tones you know!)

regards,
Philly :D

Mrs A is resigned to it now.:wink::roll: In fact, it was me that carried them in from the car, so it's a sign of an improving back. As for the planes, Mrs A liked them 'cos they are shiny, and looked smart in the boxes :shock: . Oh well. They've moved to the workshop now, just need to move the plates in there. Gotta a mate coming round to use my tablesaw/biscuit jointer tonight, and he gets to carry them all into the workshop. (Doesn't know that yet though! :? )

Do I get the impression somebody's been shopping? :roll: Nice haul, and fortunately I can go "Got that" about enough of them not to go completely green. :mrgreen: :wink:

Cheers, Alf

Wondering how many planes you can get into one avatar... :twisted:
