« Part 4: Infill Jack (well almost) Part 5 of Just some planes restored series Part 6: Wood Bodied Fillister restored. »

I don’t have any “before” pictures of this one. It was in pretty rough shape, but cleaned up pretty easy. It works pretty well and I find myself reaching for it more than I anticipated. Someday I’d like to pick up the A4 and A6 as well, but they are a bit pricey and I have several #4’s and #6’s. It seems Patrick Leach didn’t seem to care for these aluminum versions, but this one stays in my collection.

Nice restore. I am guessing that is pretty light.

Thanks Emma, I’ll watch it, but they usually go for big bucks.

When I first seen it I though someone had been up to a little backyard foundry shenanigans until I searched them.
