Video: Hand Planes with Rob Cosman
This DVD is designed to help you get your new plane from the box to the bench in minutes! This is our first in-house production. While the video/audio quality is not as good as my other DVDs, I think you will still find great value in the content. I cover the following topics in the DVD:
Which planes (1 thru 8) do I need?
Do new planes need flattening and how do I tell?
Do I need to "tune up" a new plane?
How do I quickly sharpen blades?
Which stones are best?
Why adjust the throat?
How do I keep edges square?
How best to hold a plane?
How do I plane end grain?
How is a shooting board used?
How do I make a shooting board?
What about block planes?
Running Time: 1 hours and 30 minutes
Available as a single DVD or on demand streaming
I have been in woodworking for over 60 years and learned many things in this video and learning more.
The video set
I have almost finished all of the video package set. I found them very informative and a great source when I need to review the hand tool techniques before I start a new project. I believe that I now can proceed with confidence when I finish organizing my new shop. I have several shop storage ideas to practice all these new tools. I will begin with the Moxon vise first so I can hand cut dove tails to build a case for all of my hand tools.
Hand Plane video
The demo was very helpful to approach the sharpening process quickly. Accessing was more challenging. It may have been an operator problem.
DVD: “Hand Planes with RC
While one could always th\ink of a few things not mentioned in this review of handplanes for beginners, it is nevertheless the most complete review I have seen yet. My daughter is just getting into woodworking, and I intend to send a copy of this to her. Well done, Rob Cosman!
