Well, I did fine three such planes. Only bought two. One was a PARPLUS #5 that will be a source of parts. Yeah, I know, pressed steel frog again. Handles were is GREAT shape though.
The other of these two planes? Well, here is a little looksee..
No iron, chipbreaker, or levercap. Kind of a short base #4. Other side of the frog looked vaguely firmiliar, though
Do I see a Millers Falls detail, or two? Yoke for the adjuster is a two-piece steel thingy. A lot of the chrome plating is flaking off. It has a 7A stamped in the frog, along with what LOOKS like a 406.
Base has a little different idea about the tall front knob..
There are ridges down inside that ring? Another look around?
The tote has a stamp in it’s side “W.H. KIEFABER CO.” Bolts are two piece. Heads are plated, not sure what is under the plating.
As far as the PARPLUS #5 parts plane? That adjuster wheel is one of the smallest I’ve ever seen, less than 3/4’ in diameter. If that. All of it’s parts ARe there, darn it all. As for the one still at that store? A little #4 sized plane by WORTH, and at $20, I will PASS! These two cost a whole $12 total. May go back after next payday, there is a LOT of other hand toys, er, tools sitting there.
