I’ve wanted a toothed plane for a while. I’ve looked at toothed irons for a few of my scrapers, but just never pulled the trigger. I’ve seen several planes in antiques shops, but they were always a bit more than I wanted to spend. When this iron came up, I took a chance and grabbed it.
The body is worming chestnut with cherry sides. The chestnut was from a reclaimed timber and the cherry from the scrap pile.
The iron was pretty rusty when I got it. A little wire wheel action and some evapo-rust, then some dmt strokes, and it came out pleasantly useful.
Thanks for looking.
