My father gave me a wooden plane inherited from my grandpa’s stuff. I think it’s meant to be a scrub or jack plane: the mouth is pretty wide (about 4mm effective, the opening in the body itself being 10-11mm), and the edge is strongly cambered (the corners are 1.5mm back from the center of the camber, over a 54mm wide iron). For perspective, the body is 270mm long, 70mm high, and 73-74mm wide.
It’s in pretty good condition but some work is needed to get it back to working order.
Scratched and not very flat sole, nothing that a little planing or sanding can’t fix, and there’s only a tiny little crack at the mouth. The sole is not square to the sides and to the iron bed, though, and by a few degrees… not sure that really matters for a scrub plane.
A crack on the top:
Iron and chipbreaker have a bit of rust, nothing bad here; the edge is really far from square (3 or 4mm to file) but then neither is the sole, and they line up pretty well…
Iron, wedge and the back/handle are mushroomed; I can reshape the wedge, file or leave the iron as is, but for the body I’m not sure how to fix it best.
As always, see the full-size photos on flickr (there are a couple more of the wedge, chipbreaker and iron side by side).
