Topic tags/keywords: keen kutter transitional plane plane

This is my first post so I hope I am doing this correctly. I apologize if not.

So I picked up this Keen Kutter Tansitional Plane today and cannot find any info about it online. Plenty about the metal bottom/ Bedrock ones but not this one. I also found some info on the Keen Kutter Transitional Jack plane, but this one seems much longer. It’s a little over 20” long. Does anyone have any info on the Keen Kutter Transitional planes?

FYI all the parts are here but took it apart to clean off some of the dirt. That’s when I saw the Keen Kutter logo with the Eye.

assuming it is as manufactured, you appear to have a fore plane—a KK29, 20” in length—the equivalent of a No. 6 Stanley.

(your plane is to the right of the highlighted plane)
