Default Plane restoration 1

I bought a box of old tools just to get the ones I wanted. This is the first one finished. I really do not use hand tools that much but sometimes they are perfect for a job. Really like seeing the old things come back to life.

Nice job Clay. That restoration will give plenty of satisfaction every time you use it as well as every tine you look at it.

I love working with hand planes. Something quieting about it. Surprising how even a relatively cheap plane, worked over carefully, can work so well.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Clay, you put a lot of work and time to get that plane back in working order. Now it looks great.

I bought a lot of 5 block planes on eBay and I got one back in working order. There is another I am going to fix up (soon). The others are for parts.

After careful sharpening and stropping, it will work like a dream!
