To get the most complete information on what is being sold, please read full description, and see all photos. If more specific information or additional photos are needed, please contact me.
Wood tools a century or more old, may have dents, dings, scratches, age/shrinkage checks, and warpage. Anything significant will be noted and photographed.
The plane has been lightly cleaned, by hand, using a Scotch-Brite pad and B.L.O. I have also removed the depth stop, filed off the sharp edges and just generally cleaned it up.
Thread damage is very minimal. One of the thin nuts has a crack. There are age checks in the body and fence. (all photographed).
The plane is unmarked, but I believe it is British made (i got it from an auction in England, 25+ years ago).
The fence is "boxed".
The marking on the iron is partially illegible. It appears to be "MOULSON BROS. CAST STEEL WARRANTED 5".
An uncommon plane in excellent condition, IMHO.
The iron will need to be sharpened, and the sole may need truing if this plane is to be used.
