I went by an antique shop I frequent from time to time. The owner had stuffed a few jewels in a tool box for me.
I started with the longest plane. Its 26 inches long. When I first started working it I thought it was chestnut, but it turns out to be beech.
The blade is marked W. Hill. I couldn’t find much on it but its one of the hardest irons I’ve ever sharpened. I little refinishing and sharpening. The iron still has some pretty major pits. I think this may be a nice mantle piece, but its a NICE mantle piece.
