Hey now,
I cured this problem by putting some ppetroleum jelly on the hinge where the pin is. Glue won't stick there now. Much easier than fixing it afterwards.

Over the years I've built up quite a collection of hot wire cutters for my soldering gun. Bits of copper wire I've bent into different shapes.

I often make hinges from covering material. I don't care for the top hinge thing, too much slop for many of my planes. So I make classic style over and under hinges from moneycote. I cut...

Razor plane, very cool tool. Balsa stripper is too, I also like the tiny spoke shave that X-acto sells, if I'm doing extreme tapers on lumber it's the best. A good tapered reamer comes in...

This reminds me; when I buy a new/different colour of moneycote I cut off a small piece and iron it to some scrap wood, listing the brand ans colour name on the back.
Over time I've...

Hey now,
So a few years back for a totally different hobby I built a light table; basically a box with a light bulb inside and frosted glass for the top.

Hey now,
For flat laminations I like to use two layers of balsa and this nifty carbon viel I got from a Russian guy a few years back. It's thin, like .5ox glass cloth. I lay it up with Tap Plastics...
