Well I recently found this forum in search of something else that has been since forgotten ..
I’m Jack , in central Bama , and makin’ SawDust is just one of several hobbies that consume my spare fun chips ..
Be 54 this year , and been making SawDust mistakes for quite a while now ..
Most of my projects were renovations additions and pieces to use in our 100 year old log , cedar and heart pine home that burned to the ground in May 2007 ..

After that I lost my desire to do this for a long time , and am finally coming back around to makin’ SawDust again ..

I love old hand planes and find them when the prices are right , and refurbish them for my use .. I lost quite a number in the fire and recently acquired three more to start this hobby over again ..

I found a pair of Baileys , a #5 and a #22 , as well as a Millers Falls 14

Oh, Wow, something like this will surely suck a lot of life and enthusiasm from anyone! I’m glad you are finally coming back around.

Sorry that happened to you. If it was me I don’t think that I would ever woodwork again.
