Brass side rabbet planes restore
New life to old tools.
Once in a while we stumble upon a tool that calls us.
Yes that call us, even it’s not our name written on it.
Most of the time I don’t buy a tool I already have, at least never one that are the same model, but once in a while we see something we have and don’t need, we know we will use on rare occasions, but that have this special message that calls your name, this special feel to it, this hidden message of having been used and even made with hands that cared, yes I will even sometimes say I can see it was made or / and used with love.
These planes talked to me like that.
The post in from the; Brass side rabbet planes restore blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/43386
1. Side rabbet planes got a new life.
2. How they looked before the restore.
3. Making new irons.
4. Turning knobs (made of wood – smiles).
5. Deep stop are created.
6. Shaping the plane body, to sex it up a wee bit.
Hope this can inspire to bring life to old tools,
