More old tools…..sorry, “Vintage Tools”
And after a bit of a clean-up, it’s ready to take its place with the rest of my Record Junior collection! The 2 inch ones I’ve had for about 40 years.
It occurred to me, as I was sharpening this Stanley #102 plane that I also must have purchased it 40 years ago.
I never really got on with this plane- probably due to the lack of adjustability, and I’ve only really been using it regularly for the past two years or so. What I like about it now, is that it’s light and can be held in one hand. This is essential for the rough shaping of braces as I never clamp down my soundboards whilst working on them.

What’s on the bench?
Also work has commenced on Paul’s Standard Plus; here’s its herringbone rosette, which I must admit, I'm very happy with!
