Yeah, Don, that cutter has had the life beat out of it, and I don’t know why. It must have spent its life in a wooden bodied plane, then stuck into the Union when it should have been tossed. Not a biggie, I’ve got plenty of potential replacements. Whether or not either has any value as a collectible, I’ll never know. I’ll work it up into a usable plane, and see if love grows. Same with the DRP plane. Cripes, I’ll NEVER find a lever cap for that baby! That tall front knob is cool, and for all I know might be correct for that DRP plane, I’ve got another plane somewhere with an identical knob, hmmm…. These two may end up in the corral in Tupperware til I can give them the time they deserve. Until then, I’ll hunt parts on eBay, one of my favorite other things to do.
Thanks once again for all the great replies!
