Hand Plane Restoration
I have one big hand plane and wanted some more hand planes to complement my tool collection. To my rude awakening the planes was pretty expensive, so the Hand Plane Restoration direction is a more affordable way to go. We have a local swap meat market that one of my friends go to very often. I asked him to keep an eye out for any old plane that might surface at the market. He called me with some good news, he stumbled upon some old planes and
I asked him to get it for me. the total cost $135 got them all, now the process of restoration. I need to do a bit more research but in the mean while I will just get rid of all the rust and gunk that build up on these over the years.
I sure there are some article or methods out there that will assist with the process. Once I figured it all out I will post a update on this. In the mean time I will try to locate some new handle for the planes. Also need to replace some of the blades on a few of them. But all and all i think this still a cheaper way that purchasing something new.
