I’ve been wanting one of these for a while. An opportunity came up to pick this up on eBay and I made the jump. It’s main issue is that it has been drilled to hang on the wall. Not going to affect my ability to use it.

You know, Wayne, if that ugly hang-hole ever gets to you to the point you decide the plane must go, keep me in mind. :-)

Congrats, nice pickup!

that is one sweet looking plane. V logo and all. You set it next to those 2 fixer uppers. That’s like sitting me next to Heidi Klum at a Emmy awards dinner!

Don, the two fixer uppers are my next restoration projects. Stanley type 9 4 1/2 and a Type 11 4 1/2c. Might get to them this weekend. I have a Type 11 #5 as well waiting.

Thanks Shane.

I wonder if you could fill the hole with a brass rod, peen it to make a kind of rivet, then lap the bottom flat, rod and all. Just one option to fill it, I guess.

You probably could, but it still would not fix the issue of being modified. I will just leave it as it is and use the heck out of it.

I just picked up a really nice #4 1/2 which I was really excited about. Now I wish I’d held out for the #604 1/2. Thanks for harshing my mellow…
