You’re very welcome Jeff. 🙂

I have a couple of old wooden roughing/scrub planes (Also small bodied) and find this small #2 metal bodied plane is definitely fit for purpose.  Blade width is 1-5/8″ (Body width is 2″), size and nature of this type of plane matches it to use as a very versatile scrub plane.  Especially on furniture sized stock prep.  The nature of the cambered edge tends to present very little blade to the cut and makes it possible to take very heavy shavings with very little effort. 🙂
