Set up time - bandit571 - 07-10-2022

Depends...with, or without stopping to take the pictures....Start with this box..
Open it up...
This is a Type 20, from Roxton Pond, QUE. CAN.    Need the Main stock and a cutter..
1/4" wide, SHARP cutter....next..
Won't need the long rods, so these short ones will work just fine ( like the screwdriver?) Next..
With cutters 1/4" wide and up, I add the Sliding Stock to help support the cutter...also a place for me to hold onto...next..
The fence helps align the plane with an edge...so the groove I am cutting will be in the same place....1/4" in from the bottom edge of the board.  Set with a combo square, check that both ends of the fence are the same distance....

Should be ready..
Just have to knock the 4 parts apart, and set up a way to hold them to the bench...
Without taking all the photos...set up was under 5 minutes.   
That screwdriver....a Millers Falls No. 6.......I don't have the Stanley one..

These are fun planes to use....

Interesting!  I'd not known that Roxton Pond made the specialty Stanley planes as well.
