I just recently visited a garage sale and picked up my first hand planes along with a bunch of half-round and flat rasps and some other files and one metal wedge for $10. Out of the 4 hand planes the guy had only two were vintage Made in USA, a Corsair (which I know few are found of but it was $1) which I have found no way to identify it yet, and a Bailey no. 4 what I’m assuming is a sweetheart because it has a heart with a SW in the middle and some numbers written under the frog , the only downside is its missing the lever cap and plane iron cap which after a bath of evapo-rust it and sanding down the handles should be pretty nice plane I’m hoping.
My question is where can I find the parts reasonably cheap or does anyone have any extras I’ll pay.
