So I was able to get Ernest’s hand planes into the bead blaster. Also the new handle and tote arrived as well as the blade, so now for the sequence of pictures showing the restoration. The handle on this plane was completely trashed so I replaced it with a Bill Rittner handle and tote set. The blade was also worn down to the nub, so I replaced it with a Hock blade. For a blow by blow on how I did it please see this post -> No. 3 Stanley Rehab.
