Toothing Plane


Lapping my toothing plane. The stack of free 60 grit paper they gave out at a guild meeting last summer is perfect on my granite test plate.  It sure is nice how quickly a wooden-bodied plane can be trued.  This one had quite a belly on it, but I’ll bet it took no longer than 5 minutes to flatten the sole.

For tool-geeks, I can not make out a maker’s mark on the plane, except “Ward” on the iron. About 20 ppi.  The iron is 2″ wide and the body is 7 3/4 inches long.  The photos below were Hyperkittens, taken before I cleaned it up a bit with steel wool.
