Rusty Hand Plane Restoration

This is a Stanley no 4 hand plane. Restoring this plane was rather fun. I chose this restoration because my current go to plane is over 100 years old. I needed a more modern plane in order to preserve my current one. Thanks to my new powder coat setup I was able to powder coat most part which in turn would provide a durable finish for the tool.

I hope you enjoy this restoration and share your thought in the comments section.

    Awesome job! That’s the most complete disassembly and most detailed plane restoration I’ve seen! What made me happy right from the start was to see you using your bare hands, like a man should. Too many guys are wearing gloves like they’re afraid to get their hands dirty. lol Anyway, it was a fantastic restoration that really sets the bar high. Kudos!

    I use a wire wheel instead of a sandblaster and paint instead of powder coating but the rest the same. It's not that difficult but a great way for people to get good hand tools without spending a fortune, Buy old 2nd hand ones a restore them.

    Very nice restoration and powder coating from the condition it was in. Having restored planes myself I can tell you the sides are never clear coated. Simply sanded with 400-600 grit followed by a light coat if paste wax and buffed out. The sole and blade needed a great deal more work to be bench ready.

    There are 2 types of Youtube videos I hate. The first is where the person making the video waffles and provides us with lots of superfluous information. The second is the non-talking ones. At least you don't accompany yours with God awful music. By not talking, you don't tell us what tools and techniques you are using, how to use them and why you are using them. It's very frustrating if you want to learn a particular technique. For those of you who want to see someone restore a plane and tell us what he is doing, check out Paul Sellers plane restoration.

There went what I thought was my original idea. Do some more. I guarantee 1 viewer.

    2 questions: (A) How did you get plastic body filler to withstand 400 degree heat? (B) What happened to the red overspray on the chrome coating on this same part ?

    • My tiny Workshop

      My tiny Workshop

      Anno fa

      The brand of filler is in the video. 14:12. As for the masking tap I guess I was lucky. Its the first time I’ve used this tape and powder coat. I didn’t have any problems with the tape.

    • John Blanton

      John Blanton

      Anno fa

      @My tiny Workshop , what kind of filler would that be? This is the first 2 part filler that I have seen that can withstand the heat? That's why I thought it was a plastic filler. And, how were you able to use the tape and it not leave marks? Chrome power is extremely hard to deal with when you mask over it without leaving marks when it is removed. Btw, nice job.

    • My tiny Workshop

      My tiny Workshop

      The body filler is designed for powder coating. I used high temp polyester tape to mask the whole piece.
