That Millers Falls V-line plane….a look at how the iron was set up..

2” wide Solid Tool Steel iron, bevel down. These irons are actually thicker than the Stanley ones…They made just 2 sizes of planes for the V-line…a #4 size, and a #5 size…..Happen to have the #90/900, the jack planes I have are #14..

Uses the same size iron as the #90/900 planes…

This is the #14…has barely any camber ( my other #14 does have a bit more)

The bad part about buying the new iron/chipbreaker sets? Rarely fit as well as the old ones….withouth a file being involved. And, the tab for the depth adjustor rarely reaches high enough to be of much use. Thicker is not better…sharper is.
