This will be my first go at restoring a wooden bodied hand plane. In the pics you’ll see it’s an older Stanley wooden bodied plane that is rusted up pretty bad. I can handle the rust issue with electrolysis like I’ve done many times before. As I’m typing this there are parts in the bath and last night I did the iron/blade….which is pitted pretty bad. But what concerns me are the checks in the wooden body and layers of gunk built up on the wood. In your...

If you are able to stack cut three projects at the same time then I think I reach a productivity breakeven popint. However it is not possible with all of the patterns I cut. Second, the seasoned knowledge of...
