Happen to have the C-5 version of this plane.

I have ground an 8” radius on the edge. Plane is a nice jack/scrub plane. Have had to resharpen the iron ONCE so far.

Yep, it also has that single bolt frog. Not too big a deal, as there is a rib in the center to keep things aligned up.

It is the Red Jack plane in this group. $8 was the asking price…paid $6 + tax.

Just sold a Corsiar on the bay a while back. tried a Great Neck G-4 for a Disston No.7 Backsaw this spring.

The smoothers seemed to be a bit on the “loose” side, never could get them to tighten up. This Jack plane holds it’s settings nicely.

This was the Trade-in plane.
