alexelrod Finally started planing some of this tonight. Killer grain hidden under there. Not too sure what it is? Maybe Cherry? 1mon
  •   erin_brinson Looks like cherry. Where did you find this piece of wood? 1mon
  •   erin_brinson Ps: what block plane are you using? 1mon
  •   livnaftamidnite would 1mon
  •   alexelrod @erin_brinson : a guy in Allen (found him on Craigslist) selling his stock of lumber had miscellaneous species available and this was one of them. It's an old Stanley block plane - it was my great grandfathers. 1mon
  •   erin_brinson Nice! 1mon

alexelrod And the collection grows. My grandma found even more planes from her father and grandfather. Beautiful old Stanley's, PM(?), Union, and the beast in the middle is a No 7 Bailey // Calling all woodworkers! These planes are riddled with rust, some worse off than others, but none feel like they're lost - what is the proper/safest way to clean and restore these?? 3mon
  •   anneofalltrades This is a fantastic collection. Looks like my buddies above already helped out a lot with the restoration questions, but if you have any more let me know! I'm launching my website this week and there is an article that explains in more detail my process 3mon
  •   alexelrod @anneofalltrades : Thank you! I'll definitely look out for that article! 3mon
  •   bluecheak @alexelrod sorry I haven't had a chance to contact you! I was thinking about you on Saturday as I was rubbing some surface rust off a plane. There is a product that Klingspor do. It's a carborundum impregnated rubber block that comes in various grits. They are fantastic for gentle surface repairs. I'll take a pic of one and pm you. 3mon
  •   alexelrod @bluecheak : awesome! Bring it on! 3mon
  •   matt_wallace Which is the Union? I have a Union n°5 that's an amazing plane. 3mon
  •   alexelrod @matt_wallace : I also have the no5! Mine reads "Apr-19-10" 3mon
  •   pastranastudio Check out Dr. Ray Lewis's booth inside antique shops off 288 & 35 in Denton. He has so much wisdom when it comes to restoring old hand tools, unfortunately I do not. I also have his contact # if you want it. Hope this helps! 2mon
  •   erin_brinson Ahhhhh! 1mon
