What’s so fun about restoring an old plane?

Well, using it after its all cleaned up and ready to go of course!

So that’s just what I did today. ¬†Ernest and I ( ūüėČ ) went to work on the picture frame that I started before the giant tool score. ¬†Its very fun to use a tool that I not only rehabbed, but that I know the story behind. ¬†This particular Stanley No. 4 is a late 1800 early 1900 version. ¬†Its so old that the blade adjuster turns in the opposite direction that typical Stanleys and for that matter, pretty much every other plane does. ¬†If nothing else, it will remind me how old the plane is every time I use it.

Here’s a couple of pictures of Ernest’s old plane in action.
