    I have a #5. It got knocked off my workbench the other day while I was at work. Have you ever cried because a tool got broken?

    Japanning is a European attempt to copy Japanese lacquering and is similar to an enamel. Michael Meacham

    I love restoring old/vintage tools as well! Bringing new life to forgotten and neglected tools is a rewarding thing to aspire to! Please check out my Facebook page > https://www.facebook.com/triune.blades/ < I have done one Stanley No. 5 and a couple smaller tools so far, but there are MANY more on the table. P.S. I love your channel! Keep up the great work!

    1/4 in. Air Angle Die Grinder @ Harbor Freight $13… works great……

    I had NO idea that the Stanley No 2 was such a sought after rare bird. I collect and restore antique tools and I swear I found a No 2 at our local garbage dump and I got another one at a garage sale for 2 dollars. For me the old jack planes are about the easiest tool to restore to fine working condition.
    Great video!

  11. Scott Martin on March 24, 2023 at 8:16 am

    Isn’t this a type 15 because it doesn’t have the kidney bean lever cap hole? Also no raised circle in the cast around the knob

  12. Casey Harris Sr on March 24, 2023 at 8:17 am

    Put a bullet or two into the stinking Yeti cup (anti-2nd Amendment boycotting activist company). Thank you for the share as always.

  13. Andrzej Papiewski on March 24, 2023 at 8:18 am

    Because of you my wife won’t talk to me for a week or so! Maybe that is actually not a bad thing hahaha. Why? I have hunted down and bught Stanley Bailey No 4 🙂 Hell yeah, it looks awesome, time to restore it! Thanks !!

  14. Henry372 on March 24, 2023 at 8:18 am

    When I saw him take a No 2 to a belt sander my heart dropped and I cried myself to sleep.

  15. Pete Detects on March 24, 2023 at 8:18 am

    I own a professional sharpening center . Many of my customers gave me their old hand tools when they noticed i displayed some in my shop . I also bought many planes from yard sales and from some customers. To my surprise when my father-in-law passed away he had two large wooden boxes . When I opened them they were jam packed with all sorts of stanley planes and stanley hand tools. The best find was the stanley number 2 plane like the one on your video. My question to you is how much value does it take away from a plane when restoring it properly. Counting the number 2 plane i must own almost 100.in total . Ive never restored any of my planes other than properly sharpened the blades and on a flat surface removed the rust from the bottom of some of my planes . Last , when you used the beltsander I was completely blown away . I was not expecting that any power tool would ever be used on a restoration of old stanley planes .lol

  16. Susie Q on March 24, 2023 at 8:19 am

    I need to go to garage sales and buy me some old tools.

  17. Money Mills on March 24, 2023 at 8:19 am

    They could have been dark blue. The japanning was only blue on the type 20 which was their last type. Made 1961-1967. Before that they were all black or a very dark blue. If you see the blue on the type 20 you would know right away that it’s a type 20. It’s a much brighter blue.

  18. D Chester on March 24, 2023 at 8:19 am

    I have an old No 5 given to me by my wife’s grandfather. He was a mill worker and craftsman. Its kinda tore up but looks promising.

  19. HONEY B GUYS on March 24, 2023 at 8:26 am

    I was lucky enough to find an unused #1 and #2 still in its original box. A proper restoration project requires time and proper procedures. An improper restoration detracts more of its value thankful you leave one rusty.

  20. Apache Wind on March 24, 2023 at 8:26 am

    Stumpy Nubs has a video about the Stanley #1 Plane, extremely rare.

  21. David B on March 24, 2023 at 8:27 am

    Very nice

  22. Popeye Kahn on March 24, 2023 at 8:27 am

    I have the same plane, which I inherited from my father a number of years ago. From your description, it seems like it is the same depression-era vintage and it is in better shape than the one in the video — 90% rust free. Only issue I can see is a cracked tote, which I know is a common problem. The plane is too small for me to use properly. And I am not a collector. Can someone tell me what it might be worth?

  23. Money Mills on March 24, 2023 at 8:28 am

    Depending on the number you can spend 20-50$ for a number 3 or 4. Even more for 5-6. Number 7-8 can cost 100-150$. Sometimes a bit more. Depends on the type and condition. I got a No.4 type 17 for $35 and a No.7 type 17 for $120 I think it was. They were both in great condition, no pitting, almost no surface surface rust. Hardly took any time for me to flatten the soul and the iron. Touch up the chip breaker. Little cleaning and adjustments and that was it. So for anyone out there getting into wood working don’t think that their not worth any more than 10-20$. That might be all you’re willing to pay and that’s totally fine. You can find a beat up one and restore it. Depending on what you’re using it for that’s can be all you need. But they can be worth a good deal of money. Especially some of the older ones. But if you find a Number 1 Bailey Stanley. They suck. So just send it to me and I’ll take care of it for you. Lol.

    could not agree more 16:00

  25. Robert Wilson on March 24, 2023 at 8:31 am

    I just received a no. 2 c and hope to date it. but I will now be restored and added to my collection. I hope mine is as easy as yours seems to be.

  26. William Triplett on March 24, 2023 at 8:33 am

    I have been a collector of Stanley planes for three decades and have over 150 planes.  I believe the no. 2 you have is a type 8 casting and frog. The lateral lever is replaced as a type 8 lateral has one patent date and is bare metal. The iron is a replacement from after 1933 and the lever cap is plated and type 13-15. Type 8 lever caps are bare metal without any Stanley label. Type 6A-9 irons have stamped on their top:  1st line "STANLEY", 2nd line "PAT APL.1.9.92". Also a type 8 has a short front knob.  I believe a tall knob from a later plane has been substituted.  Overall this plane has seen a lot of use, was well cared for, parts repaired and replaced over the years and should make a very good user plane.  Making it a collectable would be difficult.

  27. Northwoods Outdoors on March 24, 2023 at 8:34 am

    Love seeing these old tools brought back to life. Tools should keep them in the condition their original owner would have (in my opinion), which is working, not rusty and seized. They are meant to build a shelf, not sit on one.

    Also I was taught that the "frog" gets its name from the ‘frog’ on a violin bow (which supports and tensions the strings). Not sure if that’s true but one more theory to ponder.

  28. Christopher Harrison on March 24, 2023 at 8:34 am

    The smallest is a Stanley no1

  29. TurkeyLegg on March 24, 2023 at 8:35 am

    I really enjoy old tools like this.

  30. mothman1967 on March 24, 2023 at 8:35 am

    I am amazed at how many people have this plane fetish. I was a furniture and cabinet maker for many years, and worked with a number of others who, I must admit, were even more skilled than I. How many planes do I own? I have one someplace that I used once to fix a tight fitting closet door. As far as I know, none of the others had such a tool, as there was never a need. I guess it is a thing among people who are simply into historical relics. Even the Amish cabinet makers and furniture builders I know use more modern methods today. (Ever see a gas powered drum sander? Yep, the well equip Amish woodworker has all kinds of tools.)

  31. handmadeindustrial on March 24, 2023 at 8:39 am

    I read somewhere these were used by young students in trade schools. Perhaps when steel was needed for war efforts, lots of these were recycled.

  32. pro8cess on March 24, 2023 at 8:40 am

    Nice No. 2! I just picked up a Bailey no.5 at the local Habitat for Humanity Restore for $3. It works bur rusty needs some attention and also has a broken handle that needs repaired (held together with tape). The love for hoarding old tools!

  33. Shelley Raskin on March 24, 2023 at 8:40 am

    That polisher sounds like the dentist, makes my teeth hurt!

  34. Roy BAILEY on March 24, 2023 at 8:45 am

    Thats a beautiful plane, the number one was the smallest of the Stanley smoothing plane’s, but the number 2 is a great find too.

  35. Jason Lane on March 24, 2023 at 8:45 am

    I found a no. 2 for 80 bucks completely original pristine condition is that a price worth paying for one I’m new to the hand tool scene

  36. Ne Dow Sock on March 24, 2023 at 8:46 am

    I have one of these it was my grandfathers favorite tool

  37. Tyler Glidden on March 24, 2023 at 8:46 am

    hello. please contact me back i found something in antique store. i dont know if i should go get it. its a stanley compass plane.

  38. robin alexander on March 24, 2023 at 8:47 am

    Nice fined.👻

  39. MOWO on March 24, 2023 at 8:47 am

    I´m so jealous! Congratulations with your amazingly delicious plane!

  40. grayswandir47 on March 24, 2023 at 8:47 am

    Loved this video. I did cringe when I saw the belt sander. It is too easy to induce a taper or round over a corner when holding a part by hand. Please consider something less abrasive such as a green 3M pad instead. Mildly abrasive but unlikely to remove significant quantities of steel. Please look here:
    I looked at my late fathers collection and found a Stanley #3 , a Stanley #78 plane. Unfortunately the forward blade and clamping hardware and the outrigger and mounting stud are not with the plane. There is also a smaller Stanley slightly larger than a chalkboard eraser. I remember this from when I was a child.

  41. Nick cap on March 24, 2023 at 8:47 am

    No 1 is the smallest and the most rare you’ll be lucky to come across one in a lifetime unless you want to pay over a $1000 for one

  42. Bengt Creations on March 24, 2023 at 8:48 am

    I’ve got a Stanley #2 smoothing plane I got from a pawn shop for 5 bucks. Only thing is the body has a piece cracked out and missing from one side and that comes to the sole just at the edge of the mouth.

  43. I'll let you finish but first on March 24, 2023 at 8:48 am

    I have a nº4 marked "Stanley Handyman" wich i suspect is a 1960’s spanish knockoff. Still a fine tool.

  44. MRDECOTIIS on March 24, 2023 at 8:49 am

    This stuff cures lo T……

  45. V.J.P carpentry chanel tv on March 24, 2023 at 8:52 am

    I have a few stanley planes, some are orange, some are yellow, I always wondered what those the color means..

  46. MSgtOORAH on March 24, 2023 at 8:55 am

    You have been working very hard and like me learning about our tools …. thanks OORAH!!

  47. Jt Treadway on March 24, 2023 at 8:56 am

    Very very cool

  50. Paul Jackson on March 24, 2023 at 8:58 am

    Hi. I was always taught by the old guys to re assemble my plane by screwing down my frog tight then taking a 1/4 turn off, so that it can be, adjusted with the screw. It seems to work on my no. 4, 5, and 5,1/2 collections.
