Interesting plane. I’ve not seen one that length with an iron cambered that much.

That’s in really nice shape, I think I would just clean it and flatten the back of the iron and sharpen it. Maybe evaporust or electrolysis to remove all the rust from the iron.

looks like a jointer with a scrub plane blade. LN has a good vid on sharpening a scrub blade

So in what circumstances would I use this setup, bringing widths of boards down? I understand it can hog off a lot of material so would I avoid using this to level out the height of a board due to the radius of the iron?

usually used to for rough stock. it’ll remove alot of material rather quickly off high spots, twists..etc. i find scrub planes work best taking cross cuts. mouth looks a little small but hard to tell from pics. try it out

Typically you won’t see something jointer length with a cambered iron but obviously they’re out there. I have an Alex mathiesson & sons 24” jointer with a barely cambered iron if you’re interest and are ever in the Gonzales area. It’s just sitting on the shelf right now gathering dust.

That’s a mighty offer Fridge, I might have to fancy a short trip if you’re willing to give it a new home :)

fun fact of the day; The Sheffield reference in their logo is for the city in England and apparently they discovered Stainless Steel there, as well as developing an enhanced method of the crucible steel process:

Here’s another stamp I missed on the toe:

The stamp on the toe may be an owners stamp?

You’re more than welcome to it free of charge. It’s a hoss. It was replaced with a #7 recently and I didn’t use it much before then.

At 25” long, it typically would be used as a jointer/panel flattening plane. and would have a straight to slightly cambered iron. If you just want to restore, sharpen up the heavy camber. If you want to use it, regrind the edge straight and hone a slight camber to the edge. With having a chip breaker it would make a good user. Here's some info you might find useful.

Maybe a cooper’s jointer, cambered for the inside of the Oak staves? Wedge is shaped to curl the shavings….

How do I go about sharpening the camber on this iron? Here’s a cleaned up pic of the iron:

Looks like two pieces of metal almost?

You’ll need a honing guide with pivot point that will allow you to follow the camber of the blade. If you use a guide of course… If you’re a free-hander, well… you just do it ;-) Warning though, it can be an exercise in frustration.
