I picked up one of the 78s last summer for $20-ish at an antique shop. I finally came across a “need” for it last week – either drag the router table into the basement for one 22” rabbet, or use the plane. So I gave the plane a real quick tune-up; just sharpened up the scribe & iron and wax the body surfaces.

I must say that I really enjoyed using this plane. It did a fine job of creating the rabbet and was very easy to use. Mine is missing the depth … foot… or whatever you call it, so I had to really watch how deep I was going.

I agree that some iron adjustments would be nice, both height & lateral. Haven’t had a need to try the front mount yet.
