Mr. Punch Adjustable Mouth Coffin Smoother by Jim Hendricks

1 of 4  


 

 

Not long ago I received a SORBY coffin smoother with adjustable mouth. It is in great condition but quite dry. It needed feeding then waxing.

 

When selecting a possible candidate on eBay or other markets I always try to look for "crisp". Edges that are banged about on the top, splits, wedges chipped, and irons rounded over have probably been abused rather than used by a craftsman. This example is perfect, in fact it is "new old stock!"

I think this has sat on a shelf to dry out for a few decades...
very little wear anywhere.

My restoration and feed mix was wiped on quite liberally...

... and in seconds...disappeared like water down a plughole!

Now the mix has dried we can apply wax... ALFIE SHINE!
