United Way Gift Basket projectEvery year my team at work makes a wine themed gift basket for a silent auction to raise money for our company's charity of choice United Way. My part is to make the box as nice and cheaply as possible. This year I used it as an excuse to try out a new finishing technique. At least new to me.

Keen Kutter KK7 Plane Restoration

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Keen Kutter KK7 Plane RestorationMy brother called me last week to let me know a relative of his brother in law had passed away and had some hand tools none of the youngsters wanted, I was able to get a Stanley #78 rabbet plane, a Kunz spokeshave and a Keen Kutter KK7 plane for $ 20.00. I went to work on the #7 first. Over the last few days I soaked all the metal in rust remover and refinished the tote and knob. I flattened the sole and sides on my granite surface plate. The original Stanley blade was sharpened and has a great edge that cuts smoothly and razor thin. I was told this was probably purchased and used by their great grandpa (1897 – 1966). Does anyone know any details about this brand?
