Really great job. I manage to pick up the #7 about 5 years ago at an auction for $25.00 Best investment I ever made.

Nice job. What was your process for refinishing the knob and tote. Im refinishing a few planes myself and could use any tips you can offer.

The Old plans are so nice for general work and at that price why not.

It looks like you did a very good job. I was lucky enough that my grandpa had one that dad had kept oiled and sheltered in the closet at our house (it’s mine now of course, and it get’s frequent use). ;^)
Keep on collecting and saving tools. They are our heritage!

Too bad you messed that up so badly.

To make your shame go away, you can just send that over to me and I’ll take care of it for you.


Well done!
