I had purchased a Stanley 71 on eBay. It was in fair condition. I broke it down cleaned it well. Repainted it with some antique spray paint. Then refinished the knobs. Sharpened the iron and gave it a workout.
After it was refurbished I had to give it a workout.Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.
