« Part 3: No. 5, Type 18 Part 4 of Stanley Bailey Plane Restoration series no next part

Just as the subject says, like any other “addict”, my addiction had only grown into a more expensive habit. Check this out….

My love for restoration is now growing. Currently I’m restoring 2 more drill presses. One Atlas, one South Bend. I WILL get back to my planes soon. However, these planes are so much simpler now, after tackling such a huge project like an old Lathe.

Hello my name is Dave and I am not a collector. I use every one of them. It gets worse when the wife says not another one.
