I went to an auction West of Fort Worth, Texas last week. During the auction this plane came up.
I got the high bid at $25.
How old is this plane? I think it is a Type 1 from the 1880’s or 1890’s.
What is it worth?
Finally do I recondition it if I am going to keep it? Recondition it if I am going to resell it? Or do I just clean the dirt off? What will affect the value?
I have put up a blog about it at lumberjocks.com/Pimzedd/blog/34216 which has a several more detailed photos and the results of my research on the plane.
