This is the latest plane restore. I bought this at a flea market for $7. It needed a wedge so I made one out of a scrap pice of cherry. It all got a coat of Dark Walnut Danish oil then several coats of BLO.
The blade needed some grinding and it had a nail in the base. As you can see it works great, it makes some fine shavings. The way these old wooden plane work impress me. I was expecting a lot less when I started restoring them.
