. I bought an Old Ohio tools Razee plane for one reason , I loved the feel of the handle. It was not in the Best of shape otherwise as time and weather had split the front in three places which wouldn’t of held up to the forces after cleaning and reglueing so the Idea of building another body around the old handle was started.
First order of buisness was to cut the handle and bed free of the front portion, change the bed angle to 50* and make some drawings to work to what was left. The blade was in pretty bad shape but proved itself when it all came together. Finish was 10 coats of BLO sanded in with 400 grit and the last several rubbed in by hand.
All the Best, JD
