The hand powered equivalent of today’s cordless drills. A hand brace takes special square end bits and uses a screw on the point of the bit to pull it through the wood.
A sharp steel point fixed to the end of the gauge is used to scribe a line along a board. The adjustable fence uses a thumbscrew to lock it in place.
The thick steel on these specialty chisels allows them to be pounded into the edge of a board and lever out the wood to form a deep slot or "mortise."
One side of this gauge has two adjustable steel pins that can be set to mark the width of a slot or "mortise" while the other side has a single pin for general scribing.
These workhorses in the shop come in different widths and are used to cut various joints and to mortise hinges.
The narrow body of this plane allows it to smooth the edges of curved pieces of wood. As the name implies, it was originally used to plane spokes for wagon wheels.
This plane comes with a selection of exchangeable blades and a fence that allow it to cut various molding profiles in the edge of a board.
The blade on this plane is flush with the edge of the body, allowing it to cut a notched “rabbet” in the edge of a board. An adjustable fence and depth gauge limit the cut.
The longer body of a jack plane allows it to straighten bowed edges and flattened warped surfaces of boards.
This standard hand plane is used for smoothing flat surfaces on the face and edge of boards. It can be made of metal or wood.
The hardened steel, replaceable blade and tensioned frame allows this saw to cut through metal with ease.
The tensioned frame of this saw holds an extremely narrow blade, allowing it to make curved cuts such as reverse profile "coping" cuts where moldings meet in corners.
As the name implies, the narrow blade on this saw allow it to be used to make curved cuts such as that of a keyhole.
Extremely fine teeth make this the saw of choice for cutting intricate dovetail joints on drawers.
The stiff back and fine teeth make this saw perfect for precise joinery such as cutting tenons or for use with a miter box.
