I have a plane that was in my dad’s belongings for years.
He always said it belonged to his brother who passed in the late 40’s
I decided now that I’m in good hands here on LJ I’ll undertake a restoration challenge.
Here it is…..
I have no Idea about the manufacturer or history of this plane other than what I have written.
I have never used a plane.
I’ll just be restoring it for the sake of putting an old tool back to life.
I’ll give it to someone who will appreciate it. One day.
But ….. in the mean time … I have no idea what I’m getting into…
This will take time so please be patient with me.
I need a blade first to make it complete.
A machine screw for the handle.
I think that’s it??
I’m going to try bicarb and vinegar with hot boiling water for the rust.
If that doesn’t work steel wool and raw fingers.
-- One day.....oh boy!!! One day..... I'll be half as good ..
