Here’s a couple tools I picked up saturday at a local flea-market, both were rusted pieces of rust when I started, but with a lot of wire brushing, filing, and lapping on the plane, they shaped up over the weekend, and a quick coat of paint have them looking and working nicely. I was amazed by how well the chrome levercap on the plane cleaned up, in the first picture you can see the painted body reflected in it, clear as day! The tote and knob were painted black, I expected to strip them down and find some ugly, cheap piece of ash or maple, but I was happily surprised to find beautiful rosewood. For $5 and about 5 hours, I’d say I got a good tool. As for the saw clamp, I saw it and just had to buy it, I’ve never sharpened my own saw, and I’ve always wanted to, I figured this is a good start.
