Project Information

Here a No.4 vintage Stanley WWll area plane, pick up for 5 bucks minus blade and chip breaker, crack tote and slight nicks on one side of the body casting. I re-glued the tote with epoxy which appears to be holding just fine. A few years back I purchase a box of 3 blade and chip breaker off of e bay brand new still in wrappers and use one on this rehab mission. After sharpening and cleaning up the body this old vessel has been recommission to active duty and is sing sweet cherry curls all day long, take a good peak at the curly cherry beneath the plane oh yea! Thanks for viewing happy plane hunting …BC

Nicely done Wilson. It's always great to see these vintage tools re-habbed and kept in use.

just used the same to finish beams, but I will admit to doing things a bit "wrong" by hitting the blade up on a belt sander to leave the plane marks, sadly if you do too good a job, no one thinks it is hand work.

Careful, Wilson! You'll have so much making curls, that you will end up turning that nice cherry into veneer. Nice looking plane and lumber, too.

Scamp238 I took a peek at your restoration and you win as far as elbow grease, this one really was in great shape as far as the body and cap not a lot of rust build up just light sanding. It amazing how these plane will return to glory with some effort on our part. Thanks for viewing happy planning my friend…BC

Great restore man, looks like an awesome user. You cant beat those shavings, no tear out in figured wood. Great work!
