Thanks, everyone, for the great replies! Don: Yeah, that Union will never move from its spot until somebody around here, who’s not daunted by a total rusty rehab, comes by and takes it home. Maybe me, maybe somebody else. I did notice a chip out of the rear sole overhang, where it supports the tote but raised a bit above the sole. It was in a consignment area of the antique shop, where the possibility of making a counter-offer is tedious. Shane: The 4 1/2 will be the receiver of ‘hand-me-downs from when I re-hab my two Stanleys which are sound but need the full treatment. Has anyone converted a 4 1/2 to a scrub? Bandit: I’m surprised that this Union does not have a numerical designation. I was worried that somebody slapped a Union lever cap on a generic plane, but what about that weird length??? 8 1/2 inches across the sole, you’re right, it’s gotta be something, and if I don’t use my own knowledge (or intuition) for spotting a rarity I might as well hang it up!
Verdict is in… I’m just gonna buy those two, and put them in the corral, for when the day comes that I can set up my plane hospital and make some good users out this old iron pile I got. Joe: HAGD translates to Have a Good Day!!
