Yes the pile is getting smaller but it has at least one more beauty in its mist. No shavings yet, its still a little wet. The handle (tote) just got glued in and another coat of BLO added.
The Blade has “The Chapins-Stephens Co. Pine Meadow Conn” stamped on it. According to the DavisTown Museum they were in business from 1901 to 1929.
This is a 16 inch Jack plane. It has a single blade (no cap iron)
The handle was broke in several places. I really didn’t think I could save it. I had to glue it in 2 glueings to get it right. I planed it to get the really bad layer off. The between cabinet scraper and sanding, it came out as you see it. The button was replaced with a piece of wenge.
Thanks for looking.
