Nice bench!
english link to fine tuning a japanese plane isn't working
you might want to shrink the file size on some of the images - 757K for the bandsaw tensioninng crank is a bit much

Sorry Charlie, The translation for the tuning of a japanese plane is not yet done. In fact, I wrote this article because there is a lot of information avaliable in English on that topic but there is no equivalent in French as far as I know.
I will shrink some files as you suggest. Thanks,
Claude

Mr. Livernoche, you show a Peter Wright anvil #127, I know nothing about them but you mention it as: "The ring is clear and it has a perfect rebound." what do these terms mean?
Thank you,
Alex

Alex, Blacksmiths say that the sound made by an anvil can tell us if the anvil may be cracked. The rebound tells a lot about the steel quality. A good rebound also minimise fatigue and maximise the hammer's work. A cast-iron anvil generally has a poor rebound compared to a steel one. I'm not an expert in metal working. Maybe someone else could elaborate on that.

them but you

This can be true. OTOH, some excellent anvils don't have a strong ring (still, they don't sound cracked).

That's the key. The rebound is far more important than the ring. A large ball bearing (~3/4") dropped onto the face of a good anvil will rebound at least 75% of the way back to it's release point.

Which is why they are so often correctly called ASO's -- "anvil-shaped objects," and not "anvils." (G)
NB, though, that cast _steel_ anvils can be quite usable.
Cheers!
