« Part 1: Cherry Bailey Hand Totes and Knobs Part 2 of Cherry Bailey Hand Totes and Knobs series no next part

Hello friends! No I didn’t make a self-aware robot. But I did complete my #5 Bailey restoration complete with new Tote and Knob. I refinished the base, polished the brass, and installed the new Hock blade. I will give it a test drive tomorrow. Have a blessed day friends.

Chrisstef—I turned the knob myself I had to laminate wood to get the right size but I don’t mind the design. You can get the template from Lee Valley for free here http://www.leevalley.com/en/html/16j4010l.pdf

Look for the link button for the totes here http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=56664&cat=1,46168,46175

Hey there… how did you get such a bright surface on the base? Looks almost like bead-blasting, but I would really like to know how you got such a nice, burnished finish on he cast iron…

Poopiekat—I just used a long piece of sandpaper that was originally supposed to be used for a big edge sander. It is 320 grit laid down on my bench top for the sides and bottom. I am not to worried for true 90 degree sides to the bottom. I have a Veritas low-angle jack for using on a shooting board.

Great! Thanks, newplane! I just scored a Bedrock #607 from a classified…I like evaporust for the frog, cutter, etc, but I dislike the dull gray finish on the soles that the solvent leaves behind. Gonna try your method! Ty again…

After the evaporust use a wire wheel on a bench grinder to clean the part a little more. The wire wheel will brighten the metal and also remove the black coating that will sometimes be present after soaking
