    Bog standard Stanley No 5 Apart from just flattening and honing the Iron / blade, I have done nothing to it. Taking nice thin shavings no problem at all.

    Is there some insinuation in your post or is it purely coincidental?

    Having just read your post now, I would say purely coincidental.
    If there had been any insinuation in it, I would have posted it in your thread.

    Thats not my style buddy

    Apart from a pic showing a plane doing what it’s supposed to do. I assume there’s a point to this thread?

    I think he was just loving the fact that there’s such nice shavings coming out of the plane and wanted to share it with other like minded people. That’s reason enough for me 🙂

    I think it was just a cry of joy for having an old tool work with minimal work rehabilitating it and seeing it come back into service.

    Ed,
    I think you’ve picked the right word- Joy.
    There’s something viscerally satisfying about bringing an old tool back to life that I think many miss out on. Guess I just like the simple things in life.
    Best,

    I love my number 5, it is so easy to work with and tune just right for the work to be done.

    I just rewatched Paul’s video on restoring a plane before setting to work on two No. 5 Stanleys I found recently. I use a No. 5 exclusively as I find a No. 4 too small in my hands. Seeing these two beauties come back to life with a little elbow grease made Saturday’s the time at the bench a wonderful way to waste a day.

    Cheers lads,
