Stanley 112 scraper
« on: February 01, 2019, 08:00:43 PM »
      Kind of slow on the forum/site lately so I thought I would ask opinions......Using a Stanley 112 scraper plane with a Stanley toothing blade for preparing the surface for veneer...which blade to get.....22, 28 or 32 teeth?
     Any thoughts? I've been getting by, using part of a hack-saw blade, scraping by hand.

I remember reading that for toothing planes the coarse blades were for leveling a surface whereas the finer ones were for veneer work.

I have an old English wooden toothing plane (Buck 242, made sometime between 1880 and 1930) with a Ward iron.  The teeth were done by hand before hardening.  There are 18 tpi, which I've always considered fairly fine.  Your post and the follow-up have me reconsidering that.  BTW, my Lie-Nielsen toothing blade, which is marketed solely for leveling, has 15 tpi and seems considerably more coarse.


I haven't seen replacements toothing blades for the 112...can you share a source (merely out of curiosity...I don't even have a 112!)

My toothing plane is hand made. It has around 20 teeth per inch. I've always used this for veneering. I have never had any issues with the lines showing through, and have always had good adhesion. S0 I think any of those blades would work.


I prefer to slice my own veneers so they are generally thicker than commercial (1/32"+). But I have used the super thin 1/42" stuff with no issues.



I always hammer veneer, so the results may be different than vacuum veneering.
There are 10 types of people in this world, those that understand binary and those that don't.

I see Lie-Neilsen sells toothed blades for their version of the 112, in either 18 and 25 tpi.  So I guess I'll consider my wooden toothing plane to be coarse.  I've only used it for flattening and prepping glue surfaces, so 18 tpi seems about right for that.  I guess if I ever hammer veneer anything I'll consider a finer-toothed blade, though from ttalma's post maybe it's not necessary?
