I was given my grandfather’s old plane’s and got the Stanly No 5 restored.

It was fully rusted, full of gunk, and had paint on the handles.

Looks like a good cleanup of a solid plane!

Thanks! It’s actually a No. 4… the 5 will be done soon.
I also took the time the next day to sand down the handles and it looks even better :)

Have your say...
