Ill resurrect one of these old Bailey No.4 smoothers this weekend in Tampa. - CLICK TO ENLARGE

I'll resurrect one of these old Bailey No.4 smoothers this weekend in Tampa.

I'm headed for Tampa this week for another Woodworking Show's Hand Tool Rodeo.

I’ll be at the show Friday, Saturday and Sunday - March 19,20 & 21 - giving seminars and meeting our woodworking friends. The seminars include a handplane and a scraper clinic. Festivities start on Friday, March 19th with the doors opening at noon.  Saturday’s hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The handplane clinic is going to be a discussion about four essential shop planes: scrub, jointer, smoothing and block. I’ll also delve into buying, resurrecting and tuning-up used planes, and I'll show you a few tricks for making an old Stanely Bailey perform like a high-dollar plane.

The card scraper clinic will show you how to quickly tune-up and use this sometimes misunderstood and despised woodworking essential.  Learn how to get a sharp, long-lasting burr on your scraper quickly and with consistent results.

I'm giving away a Stanley No.4 smoother that will be rejuvinated over the course of the weekend.  All you have to do to enter is stop by and fill out an entry form, if you win the plane will be shipped to you after the show.

Friday    12:45, 1:30, 2:45, 4:15
Saturday  10:45, 12:00, 1:15, 2:45, 4:15
Sunday    10:45, 12:00, 1:15, 2:45

I saw you demonstrate the card scraper at the St. Louis show and how to get an edge, is there a video of your demonstration? If not is there any other means by which you share this?
