Restore A Hand Plane

The Defiance Planes were made by Stanley for the DIY Market back in the early 50's. Good inexpensive planes. In their day they were very popular. Now they are a real bargain. Better than the Handyman planes or the HF plane shaped objects. Fully restored Defiance planes can be found for under $40.00. Cleaned, sharpened and ready to go.

Rebuild a block & tackle

The original setup had two separate pulleys. It needed an upgrade so I rebuilt and added a double block. Now the block and tackle works like it should.

Cushman Chuck Disassemble

I work with antique equipment and a few newer tools. Most of my work is repairing and upgrading houses, buildings, and vehicles that I use day to day. For fun I rebuild old tools with old tools. This is one of those projects.
