Wandering through an antique store the other day I found a Sargent block plane with an adjustable nose plate. It seemed to be in reasonable condition so I grabbed it ..There was a $25 tag on it, the guy at the till said there was a 5% discount but he took $15 for it. I pretty much just put it on the wire wheel. The blade was a real mess. I had to re grind the bevel. Then i put it on a coarse then fine oil stone at 30° and finished it on a 1000g and 4000g wet stone at 25°
The question is. A previous owner put 3 saw cuts on each side (identification?). Should I try to draw file those out?
Thanks fer lookin’.
