I was lucky enough to come across this rather sad looking specimen – a Norris A5 handplane.
As you can see, she has seen better days – much better!!
So I’m going back to square one and shall re-build her. That means removing the rust (and there’s lots!) replacing the infills with new Rosewood, building a new adjuster mechanism and finding a replacement iron.
I’m keeping a photo diary here and shall keep you up to date with my progress.
