Those look great. Now they just need some shavings to pass through their mouth.

Aye, no pics of that, but I shall add, all but the #4 have plenty of miles, I just got the 4’s blade in decent shape the other day. Few more weeks, when home from my job, I shall put her to work. Took pics and decided to post since I had just stropped and cleaned em all up before I left.

These planes seems to have fallen into the right hands. They look very happy and well kept. The Ward’s planes look like they were made by Stanley for Wards. I especially liked that long jointer. My longest is a fore plane, but I have room in my new plane till for a #7 or even #9. Thanks for showing us your very nice collection.
