Thanks for the advice. There is basically no chance I can justify spending the money for a Veritas or Lie Nielsen. I saw a few Stanley’s at antique shops, but the ones that looked salvageable were $50 or more. So far, I have learned quite a bit just in the disassembly and cleaning. I have a diamond plate for sharpening, but haven’t got that far yet. I spend quite a bit of time just scrubbing with scotch pads and steel wool with degreaser. I also sanded down the knob and tote. I think I will apply boiled linseed oil to those.
