today will be mostly stripping and cleaning these three planes i got off ebay for £10.50 i cant understand why people sell any tools covered in sawdust and filth im sure the would of got more bids had they cleaned them first oh well my gain .
To me this is part of the fun of this great hobby, I love to fettle old tools and try to give them a new life.
Since I have been primarily a hand tool user now for the last 3 – 4 years I enjoy learning the ends and outs of these tools. My tools are primarily vintage so I had to learn what makes them tick. But be careful this is addicting.
