« Part 5: found some antique tools i plan on cleaning up Part 6 of Tools series Part 7: More hand planes »

I havent done much to this plane yet except flatten the sole, flatten the frog face, and sharpen the blade. I did also lap the sides a bit and put wax on it.

I have a bunch of Stanley planes (I am not a collector…I keep telling myself) and just two Millers Falls: one just like yours and a 65b low angle block plane. Both are great in use & were cheaper than my Stanleys. You can’t go wrong, here. -SST
