This is a “flea market” save. I found this plane and bought it for a couple dollars. I replaced the handles and cleaned up the rest of the pieces. This is my first “overhaul” on one of these and I thought it turned out ok.

Great job! I’ve done several and know how much work goes into making them look like this. You should love using it.

What a day and night difference. I need to start checking out the local flea markets a little more often.

Wow – That is a great job.

How much time did you put into it?
Did you use electrolysis for rust removal?

That’s a picture of beauty! You ought to call it a Phoenix, from the ashes it has rose anew.
