Paid $3 for a small plane last weekend.. Closing Time Cutey ? Was marked as $7.....Got around to a rehab this morning.. Sears must have ordered a LOT of red paint.... Took less than an hour to clean it up.. Got rid of the ugly red finish, most was gone, anyway. Flattened the back of the iron, tuned the chipbreaker, bolt handle bolts needed shortened. BLO wipe-on, wipe-off on the handles. Test drive? Seemed to do ok on Maple. Might be worth the $3?
With Sears recent announcement they had sold off the "Craftsman" tool line/brand, I wonder how that impacts the rest of the Craftsman brand such as L&G Equipment, garage door openers, benches & storage? These products currently are not part of B&D/Stanley core business. At one time Sears-Craftsman was the #1 retailer for consumer products, L&G power equipment in the nation followed by John Deere. Much of Sears power equipment was manufactured for them by MTD so this could potentially be a big loss for MTD Power as well. I have a snow-blower, mini-tiller, front tine tiller, string trimmer, chain saw and (2) garage door openers in the mix. The snow blower and tillers I've converted model/serial to MTD (most of the Sears part#'s are MTD anyway) so have been able to order parts easily and much much cheaper from our local MTD Parts Warehouse. The chain saw is a re-branded Poulan as are many of the string trimmers.
Have a belt/disc combo center that has a broken drive belt. 14" long, toothed belt, to be exact. Model No. 113.226423. Did a short Google-Fu Search.......anywhere from $1 per inch to $44 for ONE belt. Yikes! I only spent MAYBE $15 on the machine at a garage sale. A belt that costs more than the machine? heck, Sears Parts wanted $24 for one...IF they have one in stock. Lately i don't trust Sears any further than I can throw the store. Looking for other options right now..... Old belt blew apart at the seam. I might go and check out sweeper belts today and see what they have. Let you know what I find out. The machine comes in handy on curved items.....
Bag it came in had a few holes in it. And what was inside was covered in bubble wrap.....with not a scratch on it.. Sears 107-37031 block plane. just a tad rusty....sides were unfinished and very rough. Sole wasn't too hateful... It did have a Cocobolo knob out in front.. Note the time stamp. Time to get this thing cleaned up, before Supper? Might be a bit better? The nickle plating was just flaking off, Cleaned the rest off. Those rough, painted sides were sanded down a bit. Wiped the grime off the knob. Sole is now cleaned up, and as flat as needed, for a block plane. iron has been rehabbed a bit. it even makes a shaving or two.. So, under all that rust and paint? Meet the Millers Falls No.75 Their version of a Stanley No.220 $9 with free shipping got this thing into the shop. that front knob is full of black and red stripes, Cocobolo wood for a knob. Fancy....
