How to Use Basic Woodworking Tools

Despite the fact that the history of the plane is very ancient, this tool does not lose its popularity until now. However, there appeared different types of planes, differing both in sphere and technology of their application. About how to use the plane, we will consider further.

The working principle of the tool planer and its functional features. Rubanok practically did not change its form and principle of operation from the moment it appeared. This tool is an indispensable assistant in the process of making wooden parts.

The main function of the planer is the planing of parts from the tree in such a way that they acquire a perfectly flat surface. To obtain a high-quality planing result, the planer blade must be properly tuned. In the process of working with this tool, one should take into account the fact that the chips should be removed equally in all parts of the product.

Fugankom is called double-type plane, which has a double blade. Above the blades is a chip-shaped part, it is densely located above theĀ blade and performs the function of chip removal.

How to Use Basic Woodworking Tools

The principle of the planer is that the knife is fixed on the product, while the chip chip is installed in the slot and splits it so that the chip is removed. The blades are arranged in such a way that they run parallel to the sole. Then follows the process of final fixation of the blade, with the help of a wedge, screw or cam clamp.

When the planing is performed, the upper portion of the planer moves in relation to the workpiece, so the carpenter’s position must be parallel in relation to the workpiece, while one of its legs is set forward. First, press on the front of the plane, and then on the back, so that the resulting chips will be uniform.

The answer to the question how to use a plane depends on the type and place of work of this tool. So, for example, in the process of planing the edges should move in a flat position. In this case, the overlap should be uniform. Knives on the plane are fixed in a flat position to avoid their vibration inside the pads. The shavings should be the same and should not be torn. Stroking should be parallel to the fibers of the wooden part.

If the texture of the tree is thin and irregular, for example on the root parts, you should first sharpen the knives. In this case, it is necessary to carry out a constant rotation of the workpiece during its planing.

A good plane should straightforwardly plan any parts, even the smallest ones. In order to get rid of roughness and roughness on the surface, you should treat it with a grinding wheel and a plane.

If work is planned on cleaning the end sections, then it is sufficient to use a planer, which should be carried along the ends of the part smoothly and evenly pressing it to the surface. At the same time, the knife must be very sharp, otherwise uneven areas will form on the edges. To ensure that the edge does not chip, you must first perform the work on chamfering.
