Watch This Odd Hand-Plane and Chisel Combo Tool From 1878 Get Made From The Original Patent Drawings!

Normally when we check in on the Hand Tool Rescue channel there is some sort of awesome old apparatus being brought back to its former glory. We have seen all manner of things from saws to massive clamps reinvigorated and given a new lease on life but this is a new one on us. You are going to see Mr Hand Tool Rescue create this odd hand-plane and chisel combo tool from 1878 using the patent drawings that were filed by the inventor! Using raw stock, raw materials and applying this wood working, machining, and other talents we see bar stock become handles, flat stock become blades, and all of it come together in a pretty beautiful finished product.

There is even a really cool payoff at the end which serves as kind of closure and as kind of a plot twists as well which made us smile. This is one of the videos that has some narration along with it, which we dig. Getting into the mind of the guy doing the work beyond just seeing his hands is cool and informative.

This is craftsmanship and we dig that around here. Old school methods resulting in the fine old school product that was envisioned from the beginning!

    BEST 30 MINUTES OF MY TIME IN A LONG WHILE, THANK YOU FOR SHARING. 1st job out of high school (1971) was a framer for a local home builder. Tools you had to have besides a good tool belt was a hammer, chisel, tape measure, chalkline etc. This was way before cordless stuff. Hand tools were king!
