« Part 20: Traditional Moulding Plane Part 21 of refurbishing old tools series Part 22: Wood Plane 101 »

Hello, I found this little plane on ebay and had to have it.

I believe David Ward made it.

I used turpentine and BLO for the refurbish

The shavings and finish it left are amazing.

Very nice Dave.
One day I’ll luck up on some of these planes like you do, when I have the money.
Anytime I have money to spend, all I find are overpriced.

We’re gonna get a federal grant for him Jeff.
I think he’s ready to open up a school with a curriculum that deals with strictly hand tools.
I think he can handle it and keep it interesting for a whole school year too.

If you’d name it School of Old Fools, then I could be a teacher too.

Don’t forget oak.
What do you guys have against oak.
I could barely hear Dave say that in the video.
Because I turned the volume down by then.
And now ya’ll are neglecting it here.
I’m starting a school wide strike until ya’ll can recognize the strength and beauty of the mighty oak.
