« Part 7: April 15, 2015 - Victorian Desktop and Stanley #55 Part 8 of What's in my Shop series Part 9: April 29, 2015 - Grinder Stand, Plane Irons, and Side Ducts »

This past week I got a lot of work done on the Victorian Desktop. I got the back panel aluminum cut to size, and the cut out the various I/O areas. I finished the back frame, and mounted the side vent for the power supply.

The power button and pair of USB ports are also now installed in the front top of the case, and have done an initial round of planning the watercooling loop as well.

I also finally got around to cleaning getting my Stanley #2 iron cleaned up and sharpened so I can use it again if I want to. I also did the same treatment to my Type 11 Stanley #3c, and a ‘The Fulton’ jack plane.

The project log for the Vicotrian Desktop can be found here:

Cool Fulton/Sandusky plane, bud. I don’t really use vintage woodies much, but sure want to after seeing one like yours cleaned up. I have used Turtle Wax Rubbing compound on dirty trannies with awesome results…highly recommend it for a light, dry cleaning.

That Victorian case is a very nice piece!

That is a tight fit Mos, looking great. The air intake inset is very cool.

Thanks for the update. Sorry about the April snow. :-)

Thanks Tony. None of the snow stuck, just made for wet roads. I’m all for having a good snow storm, but only if it’s going to stick around. At this point, I’m just looking forward to ‘cabin season’ now.
