It's a bird, it's a plane, it's....

Just a plane.  I have been working on tuning up a old bench plane my wife bought me a few years ago. Back in my post Flat Sole I started flattening the sole of the plane.  I have made it through 80 grit and moved to 150 grit.  I will contiue working with 150 grit until all the 80 grit scratches are gone. Then I will work my way through to 220 and 400 grit.

From what I can find this plane appears to be a Stanley Defiance #3, which was made post WWII.

After I get the sole flattened I am going to be sharpening the blade.  And possible refinishing the tote (rear handle) and the knob.
