Mystery Number 7 Hand Plane - 13 replies

Hello all, I started woodworking about a year ago but spent a lot of that time restoring old woodworking machines to build up my shop. Despite my love of power tools I have recently had several projects that simply require the use of hand planes. I previously did not own any hand planes so I went to ebay and bought a few. So far the few I hav...
