Ok, so maybe a better grind on the iron? It is set at 25 degrees, since I did resharpen it when i got it home. Is there another “grind” that goes with the higher pitch planes? Maybe I can finish tuning this little guy up.

“foot print” of the rear handle, aka Tote, is longer than any of the other #3 totes I have. Doesn’t have a way for the “front bolt” some totes have, to be attached to the base. Just a nib sticking up into the tote’s base.

Adjuster yoke is not a casting. It is a folded piece of steel. Where it comes through the chipbreaker, it is in the shape of a “U”. This is a single piece of steel, bent to shape.

I will keep looking into this little plane’s “Issues”, and see IF it can be useful around the shop….
