This is the 2nd of these I made. The first got begged off of me. When I was in public,collectors would see my tools and make offers that were hard to refuse.

I call it the Loch Ness model. It is quite comfortable to hold with its curvy contours and overstuffed rosewood filling. The front half of the plane's sole can slide back and forth in a "T" track to make the throat as tight as wanted.

The plane is about 8" long. The iron is 01,and has a "sneck" for retracting the blade,using a small brass hammer. The blade is also advanced with a brass hammer. Once you get used to it,hammer adjusted planes are quite easy to adjust,and you get a satisfaction in adjusting it that you don't get with mechanically adjustable planes.

My name can barely be seen near the rear of the plane down at the sole.

Very sexy curves! You could of put a little round stress relief feature at the back of the slot that holds the blade however. :) Other then that you have basicly run outta places to add curves. :)

I'd like to know a little bit more about this guitar,

And this,

Explain these,

And where's the rest of this?,

Go back and read what Evan said to do to get your pictures here. You only need to copy and paste. What you did with the link to your album you can do with individual pictures.

He's posted all these projects over at Practical Machinist over the last couple of years, if you don't want to wait for him to re-post them here. The Brinkley compass thread, for example, is a cut-and-paste from the PM thread.

An 1802 surveyor's compass I made for David Brinkley (http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/1802-surveyors-compass-i-made-david-brinkley-213169/)

A brass shoulder plane I made. (http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/brass-shoulder-plane-i-made-186866/)

A brass dividing attachment I made for a rotary table (http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/brass-dividing-attachment-i-made-rotary-table-213301/)

An ivory,brass and steel spinning wheel flier I reproduced. (http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/ivory-brass-steel-spinning-wheel-flier-i-reproduced-213150/)

An Inlaid 17th.C. Italian Style Guitar I made (http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/inlaid-17th-c-italian-style-guitar-i-made-213904/)

I'll post and describe those things in other posts. Some,especially the guitar,require long explanations.

The dividing attachment is for my rotary table.

Those are handmade riffler files.

I don't know how to cut and paste,Lazlo. I made new text to post it here,though it is likely similar to the PM post. Not really just a copy.

To post pictures go to your Photobucket page and bring up the image you want.

Then click on the little window indicated:

http://ixian.ca/pics9/pb1.jpg

That will result in this being shown:


http://ixian.ca/pics9/pb2.jpg

Then switch to your post and right click in the post, select paste. The link will appear on the post. Make sure it is on a line by itself and submit.

I have done that,Evan. It didn't work. I did something wrong.

Evan

I forgot that you said you are using a Mac. What you need to do then is to drag the cursor across the text in that link window to highlight all of it and then use the copy function on the Safari edit menu to copy it. Same thing when you paste it into your post using the paste function. I don't use Safari so maybe someone that does can give better instructions.

To make it easy ..have notepad running

When you press on what Evan has pointed out ..it will say copied

Then pretend it's in your mouse ..
go to note pad immediately ..

right click in note pad..then left click and press paste

and paste it into note pad

you then have the image code

you can stack your codes there ready to insert in your message as you construct it

to pick it back up, out of note pad, drag mouse over it, whilst pressing right mouse button. and high-lite it.then copy into mouse whilst right clicking.

i have a feeling you have a lap top ..that's why you are finding it so difficult

if so ..get a mouse for your laptop

as Ive tried to teach people to to do this on their laptops ..and it's almost impossible
BTW ..great work you're doing ..excellent stuff .

all the best.markj

That is gorgeous work. No wonder the collectors are all over it.

Lazlo,I don't know if you are meaning to help me or not,but I would prefer it if you would not post my PM posts here. It sort of takes the fun out of it,and the viewers have nothing to look forward to. Thank you.

Lazlo,I don't know if you are meaning to help me or not

I was trying to help you George. Most of us here are also readers/participants on Practicalmachinist.

By the way, you asked in the other thread: this is the link to your photobucket account:

I thought you might be,but it does take away things for the other viewers to look forward to. If you would please delete the post,it would be appreciated. Thank you for your effort. I know there are some who also go to PM,but probably not everyone does. There have been quite a few responses from members who apparently had not seen them.

I don't know how to handle Photobucket well yet. Even if they see the pictures,I can still give explanations and other information when I post the pictures. I just won't post any more images there until I am ready to post them here.

So if you don't want people to see them until you are ready why don't you deleted the posts on PM ?
Or learn how to post pictures on here, it's exactly the same as doing it on PM.

It's very different posting pictures through Photobucket,and I haven't had to use P.B. in any other forum I go to except this one.

I am not very experienced with computers,and will just have to stumble my way along.

I think I am learning how to post pictures here. Learning is the key word.

Do you have anything bad to say about my work? You can say anything you want about my bad computer skills. I think the work is more important.

Amazing work, George.

Don't worry too much about about Lazlo or anybody else cross posting your stuff from other sites. Once you've posted it anywhere on the internet, it's out of your control. You can always add further commentary and details. Roll with it and have fun.:cool:

I realize that,but quite a few here seem to not have seen the work. I didn't want to post it all in 1 shot. Not that all has been posted since I didn't post all my work on PM. Actually,much of my best work is on slides,which I need to get put onto discs. I used to be hired to give lectures,and used slides for that.

Not got anything bad to say about your work or your computers skills for that matter.
I was just offering advise if you wanted to make a fresh start here for people to see your work, at the end of the day it's all your choices and decisions.

I don't think it's possible to post it all in one or ten shots, and even if you did it would generate enough interest and questions for dozens of threads. Do whatever works for you. I'll just sit back and admire it.:)

what does the small stamp on the small right corner wallmart mean? Please explain that. Seriously I love your hand work and the nessie plane too. Alistair

What right corner Wallmart do you mean,Alistair? The small stamp on the right corner of the "nessie" plane is my name,if that is what you mean. Otherwise,It must mean I bought it at Walmart!:)

Alistair,I need an explanation of Wallmart. I'm curious now.:)

That is Allistair's sense of humor at work.

Alistair,I THOUGHT I had filed and polished WALMART off of it.
