eBay is my new friend…
I picked this puppy up for my next project that will feature a tongue and groove beaded back. It makes a nice 1/4″ side bead, which should add some subtle detail to the project and future projects.
The plane is in great shape for its age. I sharpened the iron and started cutting beads in no time. Most likely I will replace the blade with a new one in the future, but for now I got it working really good.
Other than that the sole is on good shape, as is the wedge. There is a little bit of chip out on the boxed wood for the quirk, but didn’t seem to affect the cut.
