Come on February.

Its 7 outside today. I kept stuffing wood in the stove in my shop but it didn’t seem to help. I did manage to get a couple planes done. Some for me, and some for sale.

Check the for sale items out.

    A Union #4

    Here is a Union #4 I cleaned up for my #4 collection. If anyone has a good reference for Union planes, I’ve been researching for a while and haven’t found much. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    A type 14 Stanley #5C restored.

    I don’t have any before pictures, because this beauty came with a type 20/21 frog with the folded lateral, so I wasn’t even going to do anything with it. I changed my mind more just to see how much work it would take, since it was a jack anyhow, I figured it would be ok. I thought it was strange that it had rosewood, but I didn’t think to hard on it.

    On closer inspection though, I found this wonderful type 14. Based on the broken tote tip, I would say it was dropped and the original frog busted.

    I had the correct frog, so its all back to normal now.

    I didn’t do the tote repair, its an old repair which seems very solid. I just sanded it out and refinished, leaving the history intact.
