Another long week at work, so I will post another of the planes that is in good shape. This plane is a Stanley Bailey 5 1/4 Junior Jack Plane. I purchased this plane on ebay and it arrived in the mail today. It came with it’s original box and is in good shape.
This is another plane that was used for training woodworkers. It is 11 1/2”Long, 1 3/4”Wide and weighs 3 3/4lbs. This plane was made from 1921 until 1983 and this one appears to be a more receint model. It came with its original box.
Basically all I did to this plane was to provide a light coat of wax. Hopefully I will get some sharpening done this weekend.
The following picture shows the planes that have been completed so far.
They are from left to right Stanley #3, Stanley 4 1/2, Stanley 5 1/4 and a Record T5. Also, I found some info on how to make a side handle for the T5. Perhaps I will get to turning one this weekend. I’ll post pictures if I get there.
Today at work we had the going away party for a group of my retireing friends. I presented the pens that I turned last weekend. Everyone was extreamly happy. Anyway have a great weekend.
