Here are a skandinavian style Danish palne I just fixed.
It’s a model with adjustable mouth, wich are not normal on these, also the wedge are replased with a metal type lever cap for stability.
Again, I just did a light restore with a scraper, epoxy to fix the damage, and a sharpening of the blade.
Then a full oil up with Danish oil, and I must say, this might become my favorite, it glides like nothing else, and it’s so light compared to the metal planes.
And to those who don’t know, the Skandinavians use the planes for both pull and push, so the ‘horn’ comes in handy. (The French don’t have a ‘horn’ since they only push).
