Here’s my new smoother…
It’s a 1930’s Stanley type 16. I pick it up from an online vintage tool dealer. I keep them secret so you don’t get the good stuff before me…sorry.
It was a little rusty and dirty when I got it. I spent a night cleaning it and another night sharpening the blade. I didn’t flatten the sole…I think that’s over-rated.
I love this thing.
Here it is: the first pic is how it arrived; the rest are post clean; the shaving is hard maple
