Like most woodworkers and makers, I have a soft side for tools. And by soft side I mean addiction.... I love tools. Especially good ones that stand the test of time. I feel like the bragging rights of any woodworking shop is its hand plane collection. Or at least I assimilate woodworking with hand planes.
Its easy to find old hand planes laying old garage sales and basements all over america. I personally snag them up whenever I can. Recently I have taken it upon myself to bring some of them back to life.
This example looks to be a #65 Stanley Low Angle Block Plane. Which I was PUMPED to find. I love the shape and feel of this plane in my hand. Heavier than a standard block, and the cap sits nicely in my palm.
So i took it upon myself to restore this bad boy, and man am I glad I did. With just a few simple tools it shined right up and is working great!
