    Old Planes

    Just came across 3 tool boxs full of old cabinet makers planes. a couple of old wooden stanly planes and levels. these tool box's are 2 1/2'x3'x3' filled with planes hand saws marking guages t squares. all seemed to be made before the turn of the 20th century. So cool.

    Just as soon as i can get the pics resized ill post them.

    Welcome to the forum, you are going to have fun restoring those, wooden planes are like people, each one has its own personality.
    Best regards,
