More Old Tools (continued)


These are the planes I got in my Box 'O Tools the other day.

The jack plane (at the back) and the little coffin smoother (front right) look a bit tatty, but are fundamentally sound. The smoother might benefit from having its mouth closed up a bit perhaps.

The small German-style plane though (front left) is in a pretty sad state — missing iron replaced with a handleless 1 1/2" chisel blade, cracked body, and a chunk taken out of the heel of the sole — and I don't think it would be worth the trouble of trying to rehabilitate it.
