I just bought this #8 Siegley Plane. The blade is very nice and it has been a joy to use. I really didn’t have to do much other than sharpen it to get it going. It is definatley a workout to use though.

I am no plane aficionado and this is the first time I heard of a Siegley plane. Looks like the same size as a Stanley #8 and if it is, 24”s of plane can be a handful but after a little time with it you most likely use this plane as much, if not more than others. I agree with Skarp all of my old planes now have after market blades and it does make a difference. Wax wax wax.
