Won a Stanley #50 on the ‘bay a few weeks ago. It had irons and a user-made box, but alas, a single rod. I sat the body of the plane in Evaporust and began a local search for a #50 rod.
A machine shop in my small town took the challenge, and tonight delivered (to my door, no less!) old and new!
So it’s in the box and complete!
Does it work? Cuts with an iron ‘out of the box’ show promise!
So an agile plough plane is in the house! Very cool when a plan (and plane) comes together!
