All of the wood planes were treated with linseed oil into the 1950s or 60s. Once the wood starts to dry out the wood will crack. Adding several thin coats and letting it soak into the planes the bodies will look and feel much better – do not sand the soles of these planes and if you have to sharpen the blades, do this carefully. As David said, do not underestimate what these planes can and will do for you. THey can cut a profile before you can find the router wrench in the drawer.
