« Part 1: current grab and go's Part 2 of hand planes, my small collection series Part 3: a recent addition, won in a drawing »

Bought this extremely dirty, fairly rusty, ole MFr off the Bay last spring. Sorry lost my before pics but oh well. Figured I would document before I possibly send her to a new home. Like her a lot but I already have plenty in the middle range of planes and someone else has expressed interest in it.

Type 3 war era, no brass, hardwood knob and tote, lever cap was not painted but I painted with Duplicoat Chevy Victory Red

Just a scratch

Retuning on some figured cherry. had her fine tuned to do some smoothing some time back but after I went ahead and cleaned her up and reset for Jack work.

Very nice Justin.
