Restoring Planes: Metal and Wooden


 
  What is a... Sporris? by Adrian Britt 1 of 5  

 

I bought two badly misused and abused infill smoothers. They were basically parts planes and priced accordingly. After decades of abuse and even more time neglected, they really
needed help.

 

From the photos, you will see that this plane was a boat anchor. It was completely abused in its previous life. In evaluating the plane, it was obvious that this was going to be a rebuild.

The iron and chip breaker were used up and not original. The front bun was broken off level with the body. The lever cap was very rough and the screw was bent with no checkering left.

The tote had been broken off and a very unseemly replacement had been added via a screw through the rear sole.
