I bought this old wooden plane at a market for 3 Euros, but I had stored it away and never looked at it until today. I gave the body a light cleaning and oiling, flattened the sole and sharpened the blade. It has been knocked about a lot through its life and I decided to leave it as original as possible. It works really well and will get used a lot by me :)

It is pleasing to see people still using these old hand tools. Keep up the good work.
