Have you tried to post larger pictures, just to have a better detail of your plane? Try this it will help a lot.

Looks like a good candidate. Should make a good working tool.

1024×768 seems plenty large to me.. Just LJ chops the side.. :)

Nice looking plane. I’ve got an old one (not #7) of my Grandfathers sitting in the shop that’s got the side cracked in it.. Been thinking of having someone weld it but have yet to track down anyone I feel would be qualified enough not to screw it up.

Have your say...
