Restoring Antique Tools
Herbert P. Kean
Here is the book that finally unlocks the secrets that professional restorers have been using for years. It explains critical (and previously closely-held) restoration techniques in a way that even the most uninitiated can understand and follow. There are chapters covering boring and edge tools, planes (wood, wood-bottomed, and metal), measuring tools, saws and other miscellaneous tools, as well as a general chapter on cleaning and refinishing. The author explains how to make a bow for a bow drill, how to make wedges for planes, how to replace vials in levels, and literally hundreds of other such invaluable instructions.
