I ran across a wooden tool box about a year ago that belonged to my grandfather and used by my father. Inside, I found a number of woodworking tools including wooden & metal hand planes, geared drills and braces with bits in varying condition. I got the bug to preserve/restore these tools for my son who is showing an interest in vintage tools and woodworking. I’ve had good luck getting them into good shape and working condition with one exception—an unmarked metal hand plane similar to a Stanley #3 smoother in size. The frog is broken and without an identification, I can’t look for a replacement. I don’t feel that this plane is a valuable item, but it has a family heritage and I’d like to get it in working order. So, I’m asking for help in ID’ing the plane.
Parts Breakdown- The only marks are a “No. 3” on the front of the plane sole and “GOODALL” lightly stamped into the top of the Iron. I haven’t put too much stock in the name on the iron since it is a standard 1 3/4” width and could be easily moved from plane to plane.
If anyone can and will help with this ID, I’ll gladly provide any additional dimensions or photos required.
