« Part 19: Coffin Smoother part 2 Part 20 of refurbishing old tools series Part 21: A four inch coffin smoother. »

Here is a video on a plane refurbish from out of the box to use. The plane was bought online and a pleasant surprise when I got it. I have also posted this on my blog. It goes a bit more in depth.

Enjoy.

Thanks for showing. Very informative and going to be useful to me, as I too have some wooden planes to work on.
Thanks for the tutorial.

Thanks dude. That was what I was reaching for. Most everything you find is in pieces. I tried to put in as much as I could in one shot.

Very nice Dave… Good tutorial!

Good to hear you!

Music at end, drowned you out and was over modulating.

Very good!

Thank you!

Great ‘How to’ Dave. I haven’t restored any moulding planes yet, but now I know how. Thanks.

Wow Dave, I was about 1/3 the way into the video when I realized you was talking instead of tagging. Had to start it over and watch it again. Great instructional…..
