Planes restored - Because I can. #9: Plane Restoration, roll it together with a Millers Falls #10

1041 days ago by Don W | 28 comments »

So, I bought this bunch of planes in this pile which is shown with all the other weekend finds. Included at the bottom of the pile was this Millers Falls #10. NOTE: This blog is not a suggestion to strip every plane and repaint. I actually would suggest otherwise if the japanning is in reasonable condition. Some are not savable and I don’t like tools that look terrible. If you can save it, I’d recommend that. If not, strip it. I figured since this plane needed almost any...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #2: Cleaning Brass and making it shine!

1300 days ago by Dan | 18 comments »

Many old planes and tools featured brass elements such as screw caps, adjustment wheels ext ext. In most cases you cant even tell that its brass because of how dirty it is. Most all of the old Stanley planes have brass nuts on the knob and tote and a brass adjustment wheel. There are other makes that featured brass nuts and wheels as well. If there is one area of the cleaning/restoring process where you spend a little extra time and effort this is it. When polished and cleaned the brass el...

Just some planes restored #3: A Scrub and Jack back to service

976 days ago by Don W | 10 comments »

I’ve been looking at the #40 Stanley for a while. When I saw a couple of planes on Ebay that needed some TLC and seemed to be a reasonable price, I pulled the trigger. They came as a lot, along with a very nice 220 block. I haven’t repainted the Stanley #40 yet. I’m not sure if I will or not. What you see in the picture that looks like rust is just the fluid film. I’m not sure why the picture make it a “rusty” color. Here are the before pictur...

Just some planes restored #4: Infill Jack (well almost)

878 days ago by Don W | 11 comments »

I’ve been working on this for 6 or 8 months. I’d do a little, loose interest, and set it back on the shelf. It sat so long I wound up using the frog, blade, cap iron and cap for another plane long since forgotten. The current frog has a broken top, so the lateral adjustment lever is gone. I will need to find 2. One for the nice #4 it came from and a replacement for this one. The infill is made from ash. The front knob was a broken knob off a transitional. I had originally plann...

Transitional restores #4: Ohio Tool #122, What a Surprise

736 days ago by Don W | 20 comments »

..Some times a restore comes along that just surprises the crap out of me. I’m a bit of an Ohio Tools buff. I’m not sure why, but I just started seeking out anything that has Ohio Tools stamped on it. This plane is no exception. I really believed it was beyond hope, but I could make out the Ohio Tools stamp. Had it not come with a bunch of other planes though, making it almost free, it probably would have been still sitting on the antique dealers shelf.....Someone in its previous ...
