Let’s try this again. Photobucket is being un-cooperative for some reason. Anyways.

I picked up an old rusty plane about 3 weeks ago at a flea market for $25 and knew just the guy to take it to. It just so happens I live very close to our very own Don W and asked if he’d like to restore my No. 6 for me. Here’s the result.

The plane was in OK condition, not usable, needed a new tote and knob, new paint, blade sharpened. Don took very good care of it, can’t thank him enough.

Plus while i was there he had just finished this guy,

Thanks for looking!
