David Stanley auction
on Saturday, a friend of mine Richard Arnold and Andy Brown aka
Andy "Tools 'n Tat" presented me with a rather sorry plane.
He said: "This is for you Jim, a present... firstly because it's
a Gabriel and I know you love Gabriels but mostly because I know
you'd love to bring it back to life!"
Yah RIGHT, Andy!!!
I will be doing this slowly and document each part in case there
are any other eegits out there tempted to do the same!
The bits to fix the body... beech part.
Disaster area - damage to the main beech body, missing front
missing depth stop.
First we have to tidy up the beech body to allow easier grafting
of a new section.
This Marples "Shamrock" sash chisel is razor sharp and ideal
to par down the wall straight.
