Here are the 3 hand planes that my Grandfather owned. Now i have no real experience with hand planes other than having someone set them up and letting me piddle with them, but it is a skill I would like to learn. Since these obviously need some work to get them back in shape, I figure this would be a good way to learn. Hopefully with some help from this community, i can restore these back to some good working order. All the blades are dull and completely out of align, even my novice self knows this.
2 of these are Stanley planes, the third i have no idea, maybe someone can enlighten me.
Stanley Bailey #5
and the Mystery plane ( coloring maybe Craftsman?, based on bench vice that has the same)
gonna take these apart one by one, try to sharpen the blades (if possible) clean and possibly repaint them, any advice or ideas on how to do such would be appreciated.
found Don W’s blog’s and doing some research:
