It's used for trimming rebates ("rabbets", in the USA), even large ones.

How to adjust


Those are funny little planes - they're wicked handy when you need one. I like mine a LOT.

They ARE coarsely built, not a "fine" tool, but they do a fine job.

Loosen the little screw SLIGHTLY, then either bump the rear of the iron (to extend it more) or the rear of the plane (to extend the iron less) against a piece of softwood (bench, sawhorse, 2x4, hammer handle). When it's where you want it, tighten the little screw again.

Adjust the plane's mouth (assuming that you're using it as a bullnose plane, not as a chisel plane) by loosening the big screw, then just sliding the bullnose front & rear.

Remember - planes are meant to SHAVE wood. The iron should NOT take off a thick shaving, it should take off a shaving no thicker than one sheet of toilet paper. The iron should BARELY peek out from under the plane.

Cant get my 3" block plane back together


Pretty hard to help you directly. 3" is a pretty small plane if you mean the length of it, and pretty big if you mean the width.... try Google images for "plane buck", maybe a picture will help. Good luck.

What is a glider rocker?


A glider rocker is a type of rocking chair that moves back and forth on a flat plane instead on a curvy one like in the traditional rocking chairs. It is considered more comfortable and takes less space than the traditional rocker.

I found a combunation plane no 50 in my shed how do i use it


If this is a cast iron, nickle plated Stanley number 50 it is considered by many to be a collectors item and is between 50-140 yrs old. Depending on condition, original box, manual etc, this plane could be worth $150 or more to a collector.
As for using the plane, here is a link to the site "Cornish Woodworking" which does a great job explaining the parts and use of ploughs and planers.

How thin can i plane wood im planing to go to 1/16 inch


Use a backing board, such as high grade 3/4 inch plywood under the board you are planing, and you should be able to get down to 1/16, depending on the stability of the board you are planing. Take light cuts and flip it over to cut on both sides. Sounds like you might be making a guitar? Good luck.

How do I plane the edge, end and surface of a board? how do i find a hand saw for ripping a board?


Are your arms big? Good, cause that is how you do it. With a lot of muscle. They have too many power tools out there now to make it easier. But if you want to do it the old way, you will need a handful of planes, not just one block plane. You need a couple of jack planes, smoothing plane, and scraper plane, to get a nice surface, the jack plane, 12 -14 inches long will go right over the bumps and flatten those edges right out, Keep it square to the edge. Look by eye and use a square to check. Your end grain can be done with your block plane, get it in a vise and take little cuts. Your surface is the tough one, it takes a sharp iron and a steady hand to surface a board, some woods don't like being surfaced, some do. Again, start out with the scrub plane, 8-12 inches, and run it against the grain to smooth, then the jack plane with the grain to flatten, then the scraper to finish. Rip saws are hard to come by, the teeth are at a 90 degrees to the saw. and wide, and you need big arms. The japanese saws have both edges on their saws and they work great. But you can't beat an electric planer. Hope this helps.

The motor on my Badger 5 disposal was humming but not rotating. I cleaned out all the debris, reset it and now there's nothing - no hum, nothing. Is my badger dead?


The badger 5 has a dislodge device on the bottom right in the very center. An allen wrench will fit if you have lost the tool that came with it.

FIrts you will need to dislodge anything preventing it from turning. (Insert the right size allen wrench and turn both directions) The remove whatever comes loose after dislodging.

Then opush the red reset button on the bottom. Check the breaker that powers up the disposal, as you may have tripped it.

If the breaker is on, the unit is turning freely, and the reset button is pushed, then the next step is to check for power using a volt meter, to make sure the disposal is indeed getting power. If all the above has been done, the unit IS getting power then yes, the disposal needs to be replaced.
