« Part 1: craftsman plane #1 Part 2 of Fettling series no next part
  1. 6 and another #4

they both in rough shape hopefully can make them into something
look to be made by Sargent?

#6

#4

so i took the 6 apart


Tote is missing the top tip, knob is grungy, both gonna get stripped/sanded.
Lots of rust all over, the japping/paint is 70% shot.

blade rust looks bad, but no pitting that i can tell

more later..
