« Part 10: Shelton No4.. Very nice find Part 11 of Plane restoration series Part 12: Stanley No 118 & No 130 great block planes!!!! »

Folks,

This last weekend I was able to get to work on a block plane that I just left aside the day I got it, also I was able to do some more work on a No 220 that I blogged here a few days ago. Its really impressive how a couple of hours of work can change a tool so dramatically not just to look better but also to perform better.

Sorry about the blurry photos but again I forgot to take some pics before starting the restoration and I just got a couple of screenshots from the seller

Now…

And this is when I got the No 220

And this is after a little bit of clean up

However I had the feeling that I could do something else to improve it even more

After the second attempt to restored

Nice couple right?

Thanks for looking

Looking good Alonso. That logo was used by Stanley between 1912 – 1918, so you have a very nice looking, very old plane to add to your collection. If you ever need a resource to determine the age of your planes by logo, there is a neat little page here that can gives the logos and the years in which they were in use.

Nice work.

Did you know there will be a Lie-Nielsen event at Cerritos Community College on this Fri and Sat. Ron Hock will be there selling replacement blades as well. I am thinking about going down and getting a replacement blade for a no. 4
They will be doing plane tuning demos.

Hey Sharon,

It is woodworking related!! kind of I think ;~), perhaps if this forum was related to car design/build I will be restoring ratchets, sockets and wrenches… RMAO

Yes I’m aware of the Lie-Nielsen event, I have that down on the agenda for over a month it really close to home (less than 5 minutes), I can’t let that go by, I think I’ll be there on Friday the last couple of hours (4-6) I think. I hope to get some new toys too.. :)

you’re doing good Alonso! with that arsenal of finely tuned and clean tools you’ll have an easier time around when it comes down to working the wood! that is impressive work right there.

Great restoration job Alonzo. It sure would be interesting to know where those planes have been and what they have done.
