Some time ago I got and infill from an LJ friend Jamie asking me if I wanted an infill plane that needed some love. Of course I couldn’t resist and a short time later I received the package in the mail.

Great story on your other blog. Amazing job of welding he did. Love to see these one step from the grave tools find their way into your care. Wonderful stuff, thanks Don.

Don she is looking great and she has earned another chance
I felt a bit bad with it’s poor condition. I reckoned that if it were
possible you could do it.
Thanks Don for the update, I hope you get the odd chance to use
her.

Thanks Jamie. The plane works very well. With its 50 degree bedding, I think its going to be my go-to smoother for difficult wood. It sliced through the ash without tear out, even through the knots.
