slaps forehead Even I should have figured that one out. Thanks!

This plane lives in a full-sized tool chest filled with all kinds of goodies (belongs to a relative, and not me, alas), though this plane is the only oddball in the bunch. I haven’t made any attempt to adjust it, so both fences were like that when I pulled it out to photograph. I have a feeling there are at least a few irons and accessories floating around in the tills. Now that I have some sense of what to look for I will have to go back through and see what I can put together.
