i bid on a lot on Ebay and won some wooden hand planes, marking gauges and saw handles. The saw handles are nothing special but i have some use for them, most have the nuts that i can use on some of my grandfathers saws. The planes arn’t too bad but they all have issues, all are dirty. I’ve seen somewhere a cleaning mixture to clean wooden planes but can’t refind it. the pictures will show most of the other issues.
Just want some input from more experienced peeps on options. Wooden planes, up to this point i have never handled, much less used.
the gauges and planes
see the crack? its on both sides the blade is about gone and it seems the previous owner tried to force the wedge to hold the thinner end, as, if u look close at bottom of it in other picture the wedge actually protruded out bottom
