This is another restore similar to the Scottish Infill Plane. The tote and iron wedge were unfortunately beyond restoration, though the beauty with replacing such parts is that you have a perfect template to form replacements without losing the authenticity of the tools appearance.

As you can see the plane wasn’t exactly in great condition to start with.

After I removed 80yrs+ of grime, taking care not to remove the original markings and stamps, I applied several coats of BLO and job done.

These planes really do make short work of edging and flattening stock!

Great work Charlie, it looks like new :) I’ve got 4 similar to this to do. One is beyond it, so I’m thinking to salvage part of it and make a smaller plane from it. I hope you get a lot of use out of it :)
