This has gotta be the most addicting thing I have ever been a part of.
This makes 5 planes I have refurbished and I have two more lined up and another one on the way.
What have you guys (and gals) done to me? :)

I bought this little block plane for 15 bucks.
It cleaned up real nice.
I used my Work Sharp with my new Wide Blade attachment to rehab the iron. Man this thing works great!

All cleaned up and back into service

I am having a hard time nailing down the specs on this little guy. Looks like a 220 but the cutting depth adjusting knob doesn’t match anything I can find on line.

What is your guess?

Thanks for looking.

No. 220…..Stanley changed those knobs over the years…..this version may have been the last before the red plastic craze started…

You were warned about the addiction! :-)

I started back in 2014 and I think I can claim that I have not bought a Stanley plane this year, but after awhile I tend to forget. So maybe I did buy a few and but I can’t remember.

This year, I did buy a file cabinet to keep my planes in.

2 No 8’s. 5 No 7’s. 5 No 6’s (I think). 5 No 5’s. 6 or 8 no 4’s. 2 no 3’s and various block planes, spoke shaves, scrapers, a cool push-pull Stanley 148 tongue and groove plane, plus a few asian planes, not to mention chisels. Meanwhile I seem to have very little time to actually use these tools.

Yep. Watch out!

The iron has the sweetheart logo on it but I still can’t seem to figure out the vintage. Maybe 60’s ish?

Yes you did warn me Paul, and you were right.
I picked up a couple of Millers Falls planes at a thrift shop a few weeks ago and then just bought a 14B off e-bay. I guess I better start thinking about a place to keep all of these because my garage shop is full of tools already?

These will be my winter projects I think.

The SW logo is from the early 1920s to the mid 30s?

I just assumed it was a more modern plane but after reading your reply & doing a search both here and google, I found one just like it and it was called out as a 1920’s model.
That’s pretty cool!
Thank you for the information.

Ah, the wonderful slippery slope. Follow the wormhole too far and you start building your own planes instead of restoring.

Nice work on the block.

Plane restoration is definitely fun, nobody can just do one.

Last year before hurricane Irma, I was a nut job restoring planes. That’s all I wanted to do. I was buying like 5 planes every few days. My wife almost left me. I had her convinced I was going to sell all of them when they were done.. NOPE.. I was hoping she wouldn’t open the hallway closet and start digging. :) Then i started making totes and I wanted to make knobs. I needed a lathe, chisels and rasps, marking gauges, you name it! It was worse than crack. I thought I was cured but coming across this post and going through my pictures, uhmm, I feel the urge to buy more planes, help me, God. :P

I lost most of my hand tools in that damn hurricane and nothing was covered by insurance. Slowly buying stuff again. The area where my wood shop was underneath my house had 67 inches of water flowing through it. This year I got it all enclosed and almost ready to re-built the shop! Cant wait. Ill be cursing at dovetails in now time. All my friends and neighbors call me the “Angry Carpenter” Nothing make me shoot out F bombs like dovetails do. nothing.

I have no comment. Admitting the problem is the first step but I have no problem.

Well, other than money, time, and I have no space for these friggin planes!
