|Two new-to-me woodies|
|Greenfield Tool Co. jack plane|
|Markings on the toe show a lot of wear|
There's not a lot of this laminated iron left, so this plane probably saw a lot of use, though probably not in the last few decades.
|Humphreysville Mfg. Co iron and cap-iron|
|Slightly cambered iron|
The plane has some issues. The sole is not close to flat, though that's not a big deal for a jack plane. The bed is not flat. The wedge doesn't fit quite right. A big chip came off the upper left abutment.
|The wedge seems to fit OK, but look down deep|
|The tip of the wedge extends past the start of the curve of the cap-iron,|
giving a place for shavings to get caught
|Obvious areas for shavings to jam in the mouth|
|Throat with iron/cap and wedge removed|
The second plane is an 18 1/8" long jack of unknown make. It is 3 1/8" wide and 2 3/4" tall. The 2 1/2" iron is from Auburn Tool Co., Thistle brand.
|The unknown maker plane with Auburn Tool Co double iron|
|The iron with Auburn logo|
|Different light shows a little more|
|View from below - mouth and iron are same width|
|Front of the throat shows the crack was once filled with something|
|Seems like a rough "hack" job of recessing the back of the wedge for the protruding screw|
|View from underside of mouth: see the tapered end of the wedge in there?|
There is s huge gap between it and the cap-iron where shavings can jam up.
|Throat area showing abutment in good shape|
