Topic tags/keywords: sandusky tool co a f cushman chuck stanley router 71

Hello,
Picked up some crusty blades from a yard sale yesterday. One of them looks like a toothing plane blade, which I know to be unusual especially with the relief of an eyeball at the top. I’m curious as to what the sandusky tool co. one might be used for. It’s the one with the step back on it.
Second pic is my finds from the weekend, with charbroiled router.
Thanks!
~John

I would say all 3 in the first pic are plane irons.
The middle one is for a wood bodied plane.

Definitely looks like wood plane irons. The middle one looks like a toothed blade. The one with the step must have gone in some kind of molder. Maybe a multi blade plane.

I have a similar toothed blade with the hairy eyeball logo,
I think they’re French ?
And yes for wood body planes.

Agree with everyone. Far right looks like about a #3 size. Peeking in there on the right is a #45 blade. The one on the far left is clearly modified. The banging at the top seems like aggressive setting of a woodbody. The middle one looks scrub’ish to me. You can see the wedge mark (that rust line) where it likely sat in the woodbody. Is that one in the middle delicately tapered?

Going by the mauled ends, they were being used as crude chisels even though #1 and 3 were made to be used in an iron plane. Adjusting a blade in a normal fashion with a mallet wouldn’t maul the ends that much. Someone used a hammer on them for a purpose for which they were not intended

I suppose you will restore these items? If you don’t know about electrolysis for rust removal, I highly recommend to learn about it. I have restored a whole bunch of Swan chisels that I got for little $ on ebay, and most of them look like new now. It will also prevent you from hours of sanding and grinding… give it a try and good luck :)

Below a before and after picture of a shopsmith arbor that I restored with electrolysis and a bit of sanding and polishing, probably in not much more than 30 minutes:
