This weekend I went to a garage sale, I picked up three planes the Stanleys were $1 each and the craftsman rabbit plane was $5. I left probably 10 planes on the table but didn’t have money with me and it was so dark I could not see the markings on the planes.
I live on a peninsula with the Pacific ocean on one side and a bay on the other, things rust here. I think I can clean these up, the only fear is that the blades are too rusty.
My Grandfather was a finish carpenter, My earliest wood working memory was standing in his shop, I was probably 4 or 5 and watching him use a plane, the sound of it as it cut wood playing with the curl it made.
I have a feeling I am addicted already to planes and just don’t know it yet.
