Yukon how old is your son?  Sounds like he will make a great rehab-technican!

He is 15. He has a good collection going and has rehabbed a few things so far. At first he said he wanted to sell those but he became pretty attached to them. He is sharpening saws and resetting them. He has also made a new handle for a big one man crosscut. I think he can go pretty far with it.
It seems I am a coarse thread bolt in a world of fine threaded nuts!

Making a living with a manual mill can be done!

You can't beat the old tools for quality and feel . Find them at yard sales , junk shops . Better than new and think of the man that used it before you .
Good stuff .
Youkon I'm glad your son has the nack for it .

Looks like a good setup Kbeitz.


Yukon - do you have a thread for your son's rehab projects?  If not, you should start one and share some pics :).   Love to see that sort of work.

I love flea markets and second hand stores. Most of my tools I got this way.

Thanks guys.

I like the tip about using the wooden clamps to align edge glue-ups.    That's always a pain with my F clamps.

Sanding the handle/knob has become a marathon.  Got most of the stain off the handle, but no matter how much I sand the knob, half of it retains some color.   You think that's due to a change in grain direction?   I think for my refinishing I'm gonna have to apply some stain to hide the remaining pigment after all.

lowpolyjoe I am having the exact same issue with the plane I am restoring. Can't seem to get the knob/handle down to bare wood. May just have to leave it and except it will be darker than the Tote. :(

I just left it with the mixed color.  I was so aggravated and didn't want to spend anymore time on it.  I went so far sanding that I reshaped the knob a bit so I finally called it done.  Been meaning to look for a junk plane at the flea market for a replacement knob but I keep forgetting
