I was browsing a few thirft shops and antique shops in my area today, and ran across this Ohio Tool Plough Plane. It has intact threads, seems to be all straight, and comes with seven additional pattern knives. The adjustment wheels and stops all work as they should, and the brass finger bolts all work also. The knives are cleaned and oiled, but not really sharpened at all. I would be adding it to my personal collection.
I’d be the first to acknowledge that I don’t generally use any planes in my work, but I do have a collection of about 12-15 planes, kind of one of each general type. I just enjoy the old craftsmanship, but all the ones I have bought have been restored by someone else. I’ll also admit that I’ve paid too much a time or two…
Here’s a picture of a very similar one, and the one I was looking at is about in this condition. It’s almost a duplicate, save that the one I was looking at did not have the lighter colored wood at the ends of the threaded rods. The one I looked at had obviously original wood.
