I got a set of reproduction blades for my Stanley #41 today from the st. james bay tool co. through their Ebay store. I will get sharpening.

This was given to me 30 years ago. It was found under a house in the dirt. It was hard to tell what it was with so much rust caked on it but it did have a handle that made it look like it might be a tool of some sort. I cleaned it and gave it a coat of epoxy. There was no internet back then. We did not know what it was. Today this Stanley #41 was reunited with a reproduction set of cutters and put back to work. I did quite a bit of tuning to the skate to get a fine shaving. It is a user after all.

As for a review I will give this plane a top rating. It is very solid with a comfortable and controllable feeling.
The internet seems to have a void when it comes to these planes being used so here is a video.
