Looks like some Nice additions Mike.

So I went back and picked up the type 1 Millers Falls #18. I’ve never had a type 1 anything. I’ve been looking for a type 1 MF for a while and this is the first one I’ve seen. The wood is perfect on all of these.

Post man was good to me as well.

From the flea market, A type 10/11 #4c, a type 4or5 #6, A 28” Butcher Jointer, and the MF’s

From the post man

Thanks Bandit.
Why on earth would you paint the sides of a perfectly good plane? I already striped the S4s sides. No pitting at all. The 606 will need a new set of knob and totes, but I know a guy. Both SW irons. The 606 is worn enough so you can just make out the heart.

Oh yea, stopped at the hardwood supplier on the way home a grabbed another piece of rosewood. Still got plenty of cherry, walnut and bloodcote. I’m good on the handle making supply for a while now.
