I’m sure this series has been posted a hundred times before but I’m going for 101.
I saw a listing for some old tools on Craigslist last Friday night. The ad said they had to be sold Saturday, so I got up early & picked up 4 Stanley Bailey Planes & a Disston Hand Saw for $45 (http://lumberjocks.com/topics/40346).
Three of the four planes were in pretty good shape. The last one was a little rusty. The saw looked really rough. I decided to start with the rusty plane. It’s a Stanley Bailey #4. I believe it’s a Type 14 (not 100% sure on that). If anyone can help confirm, it would be appreciated
Below are some of the pictures of the plane broken down.
I’ve been reading up on Evaporust & it looked like the way to go for all the metal parts. However, I’ve never used it so I thought I’d try it on another old block plane I picked up somewhere along the way. These pictures were taken about 15 minutes after putting the parts in. I think I’m going to let them sit overnight & check them out in the morning.
And so it begins…..
