As shown in part 2 i had a Stanley 120 that was my grandfathers, i finally got around to cleaning it up.
it was pretty crusty and the japping was completely shot
Not much else to say, I haven’t gotten around to making any shavings with it, as the blade is still in bad shape. It was obviously sharpened by grinder, and has a serious uneven radius. Working on at least getting the bevel consistant across the radius, figured may as well use it as a scrub block if i even do use it.
Here are some pictures:
pictured with my 65 1/2 i will cover in anther blog maybe.
got a new paint job and polish
haven’t looked up a type study for block planes but if anyone could id from the blade stamp maybe you could help me date it?
found a knob in a box of block plane parts i bought some time back, cleaned it up and installed.
