Well I finally had some time (and warm weather) to get into the shop this past weekend. I had inherited several hand tools from my Dad and I’ve finally decided to start cleaning them up. I think I’d mentioned my success with one of the #4 planes Dad had. I should take some pictures of it when I’ve got it all reassembled. This photo is of the set of three calipers he had. Dad was a welder and had these tools mostly for welding and I guess after he got sick some of the tools got neglected so were pretty rusty. I soaked these in citric acid solution and they came as clean as a whistle.
I’ve got anther #4 I’m going to clean up. I’ll take some before and after photos and post them here.
I seem to be having technical difficulties getting the pictures up…it seems the operator of my web page hasn’t a clue as to what he is doing ;-) Once I get him/me sorted out I’ll post the photos.
