no previous part Part 1 of Yet another Handplane Restoration blog series Part 2: FINALLY! a use for a buck bros plane... electrolysis on #6 »

my eBay score…

type 9 per the web resources; so it’s a Stanley Bailey #6 that’s at least 105 years old (which, to my kids, is roughly the same age as me)

remarkably good shape with a the requisite broken tote, but most of the horn intact

evapo-rust due in the mail tomorrow – tote to be epoxied tonight – let the games begin!

These vintage hand tools are hard to come by. “They just don’t make ‘em like they used to…”

I now have about twenty of these “oldie-but-goodie” planes in the shop, some looked much worse than your pics. A few hours of my time to perform some TLC and now I have planes that are a joy to use.

Nice score! Hope your restoration goes well. BTW…love all the pics you provided.
