I have been buying old planes for a while and have learned to let them acclimate in the shop for six months to a year. They seem to stay flatter and give me less problems if I do this. I still have four or five that need some TLC. One is a rare one that will be blogged about latter.
Now I have an Ohio #66 T and G 7/8 that was up for the next refurb. It still needs some body work on the inside of the mouth. That will take a bit more time.
I had to remake both wedges.
It did come out pretty good. I will need to learn the depths of the irons to get the T and G joint to mate properly.
I used mendota plane polish and some of my old techniques in this. Please feel free to ask questions or leave comments.
Oh and a few of you have been asking about my workbench.
Here is a Shop Quickies on my bench.
I will be building a new one shortly and taking you guys along for the ride.
Take a look!
Thank you for your time!
