Here are some pictures of the 5 1/4 I bought off of e-bay. I did clean it up a bit. Still long way to go. My camrea is not very good – had to take about 2 or 3 hundred pictures to get these 4. Really need a new cameria. :-(

Hopefully you can see what I have.

I also was able to get a Dunlap which is not shown here. It has a broken lever. So will be looking for a new part.

By the way. These pictures are huge. I use photobucket and have had no luck figuring out how to make the pictures smaller. Sorry.

Looks like a great user plane. Get it sharp and put it to work.

I agree with Karson. It looks to be in good condition. It will clean up nicely. Looking forward to a report once you have it sharpened and tuned.

Yeah, Betsy, that plane is in good shape. When you get it done it will look like new. I’ll bet all you would really have to do is sharpen the iron. Those Junior Jacks are great ladies planes. That’s pretty good looking wood for a war production plane, must be from around 1943. They’d stopped using brass but still had some nice wood left.
