« Part 1: organizing Part 2 of clean up series no next part

This is a stanley no. 5 1/4. It is like a mini jackplane. A regulare stanley no. 5 is 14 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide the stanley no. 5 1/4 is 11 1/2 inches long and 2 1/4 wide. I cleaned this plane without taking before pics. but i have one from the iinsurance pics, so i’m going to put that one on. The rest of the pics are after i’ve clean it up. I’ll have a few more like this, but i do have some with better before pics witch will come later.


this is the insurance pic.


this is it all cleaned up. I used sandpaper and a wirebrush for most of it. The tote and nob I used a wirewheel.


this is what the tote looks like after i hit it with the wirewheel.


the nob got burnt alittle. but it is still usable.

I’m trying to make these interesting but i don’t think i’m doing a good job of it. Hopefuly I’ll get better as I keep posting more. thanks for looking. question’s welcomed.

What happen to the planes? Fire, flood?

Why did you decide to wire brush the tote instead of sanding?
