Have had that BB #5 Jack plane….not that great, but can be a good user, IF you have a weekend to tune it up.

There is a BB iron and chip breaker sitting on my bench, awaiting assignment. Parted out a Frankenplane, and the cutter part is still here. I flattened the back of that iron first. Then worked on the bevel. Back was flattened first to five a better idea of how the bevel would need work to be sharpened up. Placed into a tuned up #5, it did get see-through shavings. A $3 blade, and a spare chipbreaker…..
