« Part 3: a recent addition, won in a drawing Part 4 of hand planes, my small collection series no next part

On the morning I shipped out my Millers Falls #14, returned from the post office and other errands and had a package sitting on my porch. It was from WayneC

The package contained all the parts for a Stanley type 9, in fairly rough shape. Probably the worst looking plane i have received thus far, but i knew what i was getting.

japping was in bad shape


so was the tote and knob, obviously the tote had been broken and reoaired a few times already, 3 times judging by this picture, but i think 4 times total on closer inspection


some new paint, and some filing/grinding of the frog seating points, on the bed and the frog itself

flattened the sole


crappy picture, will provide a better one later, had to crop this one as my wooden plane for the swp on sitting beside it.
The knob is the original, glued back together with some CA glue. Chucked it on the drill press, wet sanded it smooth, then a bit of Johnson’s Paste Wax till she shined while still on the press.
Tote is one from another plane, though i reglued the original and stuck it on the donor.
Shes dirty but works

some shavings from my knotty/curly cherry block, took some time but i got her dialed in. My first solid working smoother.

forgot to mention that i had it working the evening that i recieved it, though took me a week to post this.

I know the feeling Wayne. I don’t care to count. I hope to get my Siegleys done soon.
