Clamps are there to hold those tabs in lace while the super glue sets up. Top of the body has been cleaned off. Sides have had a plane work them back to almost new. At least the old cruddy finish is gone. Sole has been planed flat as i can get it. Not 100% flat, but good enough for this shop.ning-imag0147-757-63.jpg?width=750

 

Tote has seen a wire wheel to get most of the oil finish off, and some of the old paint splats. Tried to flatten the toe a bit, almost back to a level front porch. Might still turn a front Kanoobie...

Wedge has been tuned up, cleaned up, and an oil finish is on it. Rest of the body has at least five coats, so far. Wood might be a tad dry? Body is 22" long, iron is 2-1/2" wide, about the same as a Stanley #7 iron bodied plane. Iron has been reground to get rid of a few nicks. Awaiting it's turn on the oil stones...

Might not be too bad a plane...afterall?
