« Part 27: A Rapier Block Part 28 of Just some planes restored series Part 29: Chaplin's Improved Hand Plane »

I found this Keen Kutter #9 1/2 Block Plane in an Antique shop in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately I forgot to take any before pictures. It looks fairly early, and I’ve never seen one quit like it. It was in pretty rough shape, so I completely restored it.

And all my block plane info

An intriguing little plane…sorta eccentric the way the 1/2 is stamped.
Nice work, Don!
