The castings are then sent to our friend and go-to engineering genius, Tim at FNL services, Tim works his magic with the surface grinder and the planes return to us ground flatter, smoother and with the sides more parallel than they ever were from the factory. It's amazing how much warp, twist and wear some of them have prior to grinding.While Tim works on the castings we work on the wooden parts, stripping them back to bare wood, re-finishing them with a shellac sealing coat, floating on replicas of the original transfers and sealing them up with 3 coats of a particularly hardwearing Polyurethane varnish. We sharpen and hone the iron, clean up the anciliary hardware and generally get everything ready for reassembly. Once the parcel arrives with all the lovel freshly ground soles arrive we clean off the protective grease and set about assembling and tuning them. Each plane gets set up and tested in it's intended use before being cleaned and photographed. The end result is a traditional Stanley Bailey bench plane that is finished to a far higher standard than stock and which requires no further tuning in order to go to work, unlike all new and 99% of used planes.
We can offer the same service for your planes too, message us for details. It'll require a wipe down before use. The plane will also be wrapped in a sheet of VCI paper to further reduce the liklihood of corrosion.
