Who in their right mind would pay £360 for this rust bucket?? The answer is, I did.
A company called Versatile Engineering had this plane for sale on the online auction. It just happens that this is one of the planes that I have on my wish list. After 20 years of restoring and collecting tools, I’ve come to realise that although this my look like a rust bucket too far, the chances are that most of, if not all the rust could be superficial.
This last picture show why so much. This is a type 10 Stanley 4 1/2 H.
