A fellow lumberjock commented on the feel of an antique tool in your hand. He mentioned that the only thing better is a hand-made tool, and I agree wholeheartedly.
Here’s a rusty old No.45 that I dumped in the electrolysis tank for a few days. The fence required a few passes with another antique tool to true it. Took the handle/knobs down with sequential increasing grit & applied a coat of turpentine/beeswax. If you value fine tweaking tools, you should consider picking up a plow. They’ve got “that thing” for me.
