Just some elbow grease, files sand paper and paint to get this guy back to shaving wood.

Little projects like this feel great to complete.

Thank you.

The threads were pitted on the backside so I replaced it with a brass bolt and a small peice of wood until I find a new one.

Me too Don. You can’t tell too well, but I polished the blade front and back to a mirror finish. Made a huge difference with looks and performance.

I did the same thing with my iron… full polish front and back. Why? Because the blade was so small it was easy and quick.

Nice job on the restore. I love my #101…
