Thank y’all for the good leads. I’ve finally been able to locate some blades that I need for the #50! Since I have the plane, it’ll be nice to be able to put it to work. (I’m sure y’all understand that position. Beloved Spouse sometimes has difficulty understanding the number of tools in the shop…:-)
Answering the question raised, One would certainly think that “plain” (i.e. straight blade) cutters from a #45 would work in the #50. True, they are the same “plain” cutters used in the #55. Unfortunately, these cutters are too long to fit into the #50 plow plane, which has the rear handle closer to the throat. It would be possible to cut some down to fit the #50, but seeing myself as a custodian of vintage tools, to eventually be passed to another generation, I can’t bring myself to do it.
