I really like these transitional planes. They restore pretty easy. Tuning is a bit of a bitch, but it makes me understand the physics of the planes better.
I bought this at a flea market. I think I paid $5 for it. Its got a little thicker blade than some. Its typical beech base and knob and tote.
I took it apart. sanded, repainted and soaked in BLO. The japanning was really worse than you can see in the pictures, that why it was re-painted.
Here are the before pictures.
