I have an old Millers Falls 07 Skew Block plane which is a very nice plane. Works just as good as my LN block plane. If interested, give me a PM.

Price $150

Hi Byron, no problem, I can post pics here. The Millers Falls 07 is sought after by collectors because they are kind of rare. The thing is, the skew block planes are excellent users. I got this one a few months ago and tuned it up for use. I smoothed the bed, taking the roughness out and providing a larger area for the blade to rest uniformly. I also smoothed the lever cap’s mating surface for the blade. It is not 100% as I did not want to remove too much metal, but it is much better now with a larger, more uniform mating surface. And lastly, I put a very nice edge on the blade and the back is mirror polished. The plane’s body is missing a little japanning, but it is still nice even if you want it for collector value. It has the original side fence and even has the original screws that hold it in place. Overall, it is a very nice plane and it is good for a lifetime of use. I would keep it, but I am starting to amass too many block planes. Here are some pics:
