« Part 1: Found a no5 and no3 Part 2 of Planes series no next part

I really wanted a veritas or LN version of these for cleaning up tenons, but this morning I found this in an antique store. $10. Blade is marked Providence tool company.

I sharpened it up and I’m really impressed what these old guys can do. The blade took a long time on the course stone to flatten but it was worth it. I think this little guy will get a lot of use.

For another $10 I picked up a saw. Not sure how these are classified really… Is it a panel saw? This is marked Richardson Brothers, Newark NJ. There is apparently something missing from the end of the blade?

Cuts nice even though I haven’t sharpened it.

-- I do this for fun.
