My brother in Florida, sent me a BEAUTIFUL Stanley Bailey No 35 hand plane. Sweetheart. I’m guessing between 1928 and 1935.
ANYWAYS… I don’t own any other transitional planes. Before I take this beauty out to my UNHEATED shop and put it in the drawer with my other planes…. would there be any reason NOT to put it out there? I’m obviously not going to toss it in a drawer where it could bash into other planes, but then NONE of my planes can bash into each other. The ones I have get waxed, lubed, and whatever before they get put away for the winter. If I need to heat up the shop and USE them, then I have to clean them off first. No problem.
But this TRANSITIONAL plane is…. well it’s different. And I don’t want to screw it up.
I’ll post a couple pics when I can but it’s really so darn pretty I almost don’t want to actually USE it….
