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!)
