I recently received my Great Grandfather’s hand tools. Among them is a Stanley Bedrock 606. All the tools need some rust removal (going the electrolysis route). Most of the tools I have dated to 1895 – 1905 range, which is consistent with his earlier days (he was a furniture maker by trade).
While I am searching for a vintage blade, is there a modern version that would fit for regular use?
I am having a bit of a time dating this one, but I am hoping more “tells” will appear as the rust and dirt are removed. Right now I have this one narrowed down to 1895 – 1902 based on the style of the brass adjustment nut, the presence of the letter “B” as a forge cast, and the single patent date of “Apr 2 95”
Any tips for clean up and refurb?
