Rust Hunt was rather short today, short of funds. Had about $5 to shop with. One stop. Had a lot of beatup tri squares @ $2 each…..pass
A cardboard tray full of planes @ $5 each. Stanley #81…...nasty, been left outside too long, might have a decent blade, but that was about it…pass. Spotted amongst the JUNK planes, mostly #5s a worth #4 and a Stanley #5 that was missing everything ahead of the cutter…..a Millers Falls #14. INtact, mainly surface rust
One little chip near the toe. $5?? Ok, tried to talk it down a bit….nope, still $5..Ok, sold, I guess.
Will be tearing it down to just parts. and doing a type study. lots of brass to shine up.
Frog is black, not red. “Tool Steel” at the top of the iron? A THICK redish finish on the INTACT wood handles.
Will start the clean up after while. Might be worth the $5…..
