For sale is this Vaughan & Bushnell No.703 smooth plane.
According to PTAMPIA II, this is an ‘Uncle Sam’ series plane. It has the drop forged steel base. V&B claimed to have test dropped one of these from 100 ft onto concrete with no damage to the plane.
Ok, enough history.
This plane is showing it’s age a bit.
The only work I have done on this plane is to clean off some dust, dirt and schmutz. It works good the way it is, but it could use some tuning. The iron needs to be sharpened and the cap iron may need a little ‘tuning’.
All together a nice little smoother.
Asking $25 & shipping. This will fit in a medium flat rate box so shipping will be $12.35 (or less).
