Number 6 Stanley rebuild

I did not do a restoration of this plane since it had a number of faults. I call it more of a rebuild. I am somewhat embarrassed about the pictures. I forgot to take before photos and I think I could have done better with the after pics, but I thought I would show anyway. You will note that in picture #2, I kept the original handle which is missing a piece and you will also note that the side has a chunk missing in the casting. It also had a number of deep nicks in both sides like someone was using it for a anvil or something. Other than that it was in great shape. Since I have a surface grinder I took a few thousands off the sides (a total of .016) and it freshened it up quite well. I used some Tru Oil on the handles. I flattened and re-sharpened the Iron and ended out giving it to a friend as a user.

AS I mentioned in the title it is number 6 and is a Bailey, The casting has both Pat for 02 and 10. So for over 100 years old it really isn't that bad.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Paul

Looks pretty good considering all it had been through, it will make a really good user. That was a lot of work but it was well worth it.

Nice job Paul. The imperfections don't stop it's function. A good user. How did you get away with putting it on that nice tablecloth?

Well Joe, my wife was not home. so I could take pictures anywhere I wanted to. Thanks guy for the positive words. You know what is funny. I have maybe 18 to 24 hand planes of my own and I still have not rebuilt any of them. The have been sharpened, but not painted or had the rust removed etc, but I have done 4 or 5 for friends. I guess I need to get my priorities straightened out LOL.
