Wow that video is really cool, who knew someone did all that research on that subject?! And all the restoration and historical info in the thread is awesome as well, the only problem is now I won't sleep until I restore my no. 4 and no. 6. But at least I can show my Wife the thread when she tells me I'm crazy ha ha!

Crazy..lol.
Glad you found this thread useful...

A new tool, especially a Lie-Nielsen or Veritas would be nice to own.
For me I do enjoy an older tool, may need a little work or a lot.
Bottom line..Bring it back to a useful tool again.

I like to think better than when it left the factory.

Another project is under way, and I get the honor again to work with Dave Paine.

A quote from him in a email:
Quote:
I feel there is always the potential for a nice piece of wood, just needs to be discovered.
Same applies to a neglected plane or tool.

Replacement frog arrives today..will have to lap that one to the bed.
will post pics...then the #8 will be done...promise..

I don't have any "part planes" I keep restoring them.

This is last of the pics...

The plane is completely finished now.

To summarize the project:

Plane was acquired from another forum member...Dave Paine.
Tote and Knob was made, also by Dave Paine.
Plane bed was cleaned and d-rusted by electrolysis.
Small parts where d-rusted with lemon juice.
Paint was VHT engine enamel, gloss black,..0000 steel wool was used to reduce the shine somewhat.

Thanks to Dave Paine, timetestedtools, adot45 and other members who have written threads on restores.

Nice looking final pictures. The new frog looks very good. It is the best picture I have seen of the brass adjustment nut with the patent dates. I see the references in the types studies, but so far have not had one in my planes.

I should post this,

The frog is definitely a type 6 style frog with that style of a lateral lever.
Has three patent dates on it. No sign of it having been replaced.
The odd thing, is that the brass adjusting still has the right hand threads...?

Possible explanation, a prime example where Stanley used up some parts laying around..?
