Hey, I need a jointer and came across this one at and antique shop for $15. It took some work just to get the blade out. I wonder how long it had been in there? There were some worm hole that i found so i put it in a plastic bag and in the deep freezer for a couple days. Then i notice all the dry rot where the hammer had adjusted it over the years so i cut a chunk of Maple to cover the rot and then in layed it. after that it was just a light sanding, a coat of Boiled Linseed oil, to flatten the bottom and sharpen the blade. I still am thinking about making a new handle but kind of like the rustic look to it. I know not everybody will agree with the big piece of maple but I like it and it is definitely my plane. Oh and most importantly it works great.
