Well I have bugun to start my collection of fine hand tools. I recently spent 3 weeks trying to get the Stanley Bailey set of old hand planes. I wanted to get them all rusted on purpose, so I would gain the knowledge that was going to bw necassry to get them back to good condition and keep them that way. So as the days progressed the planes begain to arrive at my home. I am now the very proud owner of a small Stanley 110 a stanley handyman a stanley #4 flat bottom a Stainley #5 2 Stanley #6 planes one with pleated bottom one flat. last but not least and by far the hardest to get for me was the #7. Next weekend I will begin the journey of rehab for these new to me treasures.
