Heres a Stanley No 18 Block plane I picked up. I decided to do a full resto. I know it’s not necessary but I like my tools clean and shiney. The first 2 picks are before shots. The last 2 are after paint dried. I’ll post some more and a complete write up once it’s reassembled and operational.

Well I took more time than I wanted on this one but all I have left is to sharpen. Here are the latest pics. I know I got a little carried away for a user on the flattening / fetteling / polish aspect lmao.
