I have a nearly complete smooth bottom Stanley type 11 plane collection
('cept for the #1 and #8). I want to re-finish all of the original rosewood
totes and knobs.
I need some advice on what type of finish to use. And if anyone has done
this, how you went about it. I'm looking for the original finish type and
method I guess.
Thanks in advance!
For type 11 the original finish was probably varnish. So you could
pad some shellac over it and if you want to restore to the original
finish for resale then scrub the shellac off with a cloth and
Wax probably won't hurt the value either.
