My new “roughing plane” – well, new to me anyway:
Stanley No.5C, not sure how old, but I got it as a “user plane”, so if it works is what matters. It’s nearly free of rust, and has a flat sole, so looking forward to using it soon! I want to set it up as a “roughing plane” to flatten wide boards that won’t fit on my 6” jointer… so now I have to figure out how to grind an aggressive curve on the iron.
I think I’ll try first with the original iron, and only order a replacement if I screw that one up – anybody have tips or suggestions?
