« Part 2: Transitional restore the dw way. Part 3 of Transitional restores series Part 4: Ohio Tool #122, What a Surprise »

I won this on Ebay for a pretty reasonable price.

All Ive done is soak the metal parts in evapo-rust and give the wood a coat of BLO and wax. I fixed the tote with a piece of beech from a donor transitional body I had laying around. The blade was wire wheeled and sharpened.

I don’t have time to upload all the action shots, but they can be seen http://timetestedtools.wordpress.com/2012/07/06/my-new-34-stanley-bailey-transitional/

thanks

You’re not a well man, Don. You need to send me half your planes right away to help ease the addiction. :-)

Charlie, I know I’m not well, but sending you half my planes would just make it worse for both of us. Lets face it, I see what you do to.

Papa, what’s next on the list…..stay tuned.

Brandon, so true (the compensation thing)

Thanks Smitty, and all. You guys are the enablers of enablers!!
