Here is a coffin plane I picked up at a flea market. It didn’t really need a whole lot of work. It still has a small crack in the top side by the blade I decided to leave. Its small, won’t interfere with the operation, shouldn’t get worse and isn’t to noticeable.
The blade has some minor pitting, but eventually it will be ground out with sharpening. I didn’t see a need to grind it away for such a minor imperfection. The fineness of the shaving surprised me. Its a nice smoother for sure.
Notice the brass hammer next to it. I picked that up at the same flee market for $2. No more searching for a piece of brass to make one.
