Sounds as if the previous owner might have used the plane for cutting chamfers…...........maybe?
Pics will help.

I’ll go to the shop later….have a #29 wood body, someone had cut way down ( not me..) to almost a #28 length…I used it as a parts plane. The frame was in good shape..frog is too. You MIGHT be able to trim the wood body down to the size you need? I have no real need for it…
Got it as part of a pair, at an auction…

Use Bandits plane body or just fill with epoxy and flatten/trim. Adding a thin strip to the bottom can add uneeded complexity with iron fit and it doesnt sound necessary.

I posed the same question on Woodworkingtalk and someone over there said that when those old wood bottom throats got too wide, they’d cut a notch out right before the throat and fill it in with a piece of hard wood.

That’s what I was thinking before I saw your picture. By the looks, a new sole may be n order.
