I bought two badly misused and abused infill
smoothers. They were basically parts planes and priced accordingly. After
decades of abuse and even more time neglected,
From the photos, you will see that this plane was a boat anchor. It was
completely abused in its previous life. In evaluating the plane, it was obvious
that this was going to be a rebuild.
The iron and chip breaker were used up and not original.
The front bun was broken off level with the body.
The lever cap was very rough and the screw was bent with no checkering left.
The tote had been broken off and a very unseemly replacement had been added via
a screw through the rear sole.
