With planes I can get some good puns :D
My dad has graciously “lent” me these three planes to use until he needs them back. Which is never cos he doesn’t do much in the way of woodwork anymore. Though he kept the #5 just in case…
The story goes that he got these planes and a bunch of other stuff from an old chippie he worked with who was retiring when I was very young. I dunno how old that makes these but they sure are looking good for their age!
Let me introduce you to my ladies;
Record No. 4
Made in England apparently and still on the original blade, well it says record and made in england so I can only assume it is.
Stanly Victor No. 20
This one is quite odd, I’m assuming the bottom curves for doing chair seats or something like that
Not sure what this one is supposed to be called. It says Stanley in one section and Bailey on another. All I know is it’s bloody long, heavy and made in Australia (like me!).
My current plans are sharpening the blades nicely, giving everything a nice clean and then using them. Crazy I know right?
