Bandit: I chose a #132 because the Liberty Bell iron hardware is different from the #26 thru #34 design. The tote and knob mount directly to the wooden sole on these, not supported by the iron casting. You’re right, it is indeed 2 5/8”.

Shooting board? I don’t even have a bench long enough to support it! Yeah, I’d strongly consider a camber, I’d expect to only use this to hit high spots on benchtops and panels. My longest bench is only 55” LOL

Wow, your #33 is a beauty! I could NEVER let go of a plane after such painstaking work!!!
I do have a #33, it’s been gathering dust since I brought it home, I might see what I can do with it next. This #132 was the squeeaky wheel in my shop.
