I'm just a recently retired (2016) pharmacist who is sliding into the world of woodworking and it seems as a result the extremely slippery slope of old rusty hand plane acquisition and restoration. Given my obsessive compulsive tendencies this could get costly and ugly pretty quick. :) Being a tinkerer of mechanical things since childhood ( who doesn't like to take things apart to see how and why they work?) this could be a great retirement time occupying obsession. Let's see: past obsessions (and still current as well) building and restoring old cars and engines, US coin collecting, Lionel trains, ancient coin restoration (Roman era etc), electronics, golf, grandkids, and last but not least ALL of the honey do projects that have accumulated over the past 40 years.

So here I go-I will try and get my before and after pics of my initial restorations up here in the near future. Glad to be aboard after lurking as a non registered user for past few months.

Belated welcome aboard from a North Carolinian stuck in OH for the past 23 years. Is that a Massey Harris pony tractor in your avatar?

Actually an old 1949 Allis Chalmers B tractor with an old Bronco meyers plow on the front-does the job-esp. with grandson helping to steer it :)
Where in OH-I transplanted from western PA 40 yrs ago-brother lived in OB for years-vac there every year for long time.
