Looking thru things stored in the backyard shed found these in a box. They belonged to my wifes 1st husband who past away years ago. He was a not a plane user, but he did some woodworking in the garage. A Stanley/Bailey #5 made in England; a Stanley/Bailey#4 made in the USA; a Millers Falls #17 USA block plane; and a Stanley 110 made in the USA.
The #5 jack was lightly rusted and cleaned up very easily with steel wool and rubbing compound. Shined up really nice. Sharpend and adjusted and tried on popular
I am wondering how old this plane is? No. 5 and G12-005 appears on the casting, as well and made in england and stanley / Bailey. The handles are plastic. There's a lot of knowledge here.
This is the first Stanly plane I've tried and its fantastic, much better than the Record planes that I have used since the '90s. The smoother is really rusty I thinking of trying electrolysis on it. The 2 block planes should clean up ok. I not a Neanderthal, but use power and hand tools, this seems like the place to post this.
