I found a Stanley Plane marked Bailey #5 this weekend in an old cabinet in the basement. it has been there how long???? It was all covered with rust and so I took it apart and used some buffing pads I had for my mouse sander. It came out pretty well with the sides of the shoe being blue. The blade looks like it has never been sharpened and the wooden handles are in good shape with the exception of the back handle will not tighten down with the long screw - If used this way it looks like it could split the foot area of handle. I'm open to any suggestions or info on this old creature. r
