Refurbishing Hand Planes

Page history last edited by Jonathan McKinley 12 years, 2 months ago

     My brother gave me an old dirty hand plane that was going to be thrown out. The sole had large gashes and white paint all over it. The handle was cracking and had become loose. The cap iron was bent and the iron had been damaged by someone who had previously tried to sharpen it.



At first glance the plane had little potential but I didnt want to pass up the oppurtunity to practice refurbishing it.


I began by dissasembling ever part





I sanded the paint off the handles and the sole of the plane.
