Hand planes are something that I could never master.

I agree Bob.
This can be a very rewarding and sometimes addicting hobby.
I have an old Millers Falls ready to soak in Evaporust this weekend.
My wife asked “How many of these do you need?”
My reply was “all of them!” :)

Your making me think I need to get after those last 3. I’ve finished over thirty and they are just taking up space in my cabinets. A couple of days ago I pulled out a #4 for the first time in quite a while. My 60 1/2 gets the most use.

Hi guys, thanks for the nice comments. I feel so good about restoring these old tools/workhorses. Have them produce shavings so thin is very satisfying.

Good luck with your own projects.
