    Just got this plane today. It is a W. Parkes plough plane with a W. Butcher iron. William Parkes made planes with this stamp from 1818-1821 at 37 Staniforth Street in Birmingham UK. That makes this plane 191-194 years old. Wow! The cool thing is; it looks like the iron hasn’t been sharpened for a while and it is sharpened with a camber to it.

    Got these from a retired carpenter.

    They need a lot of cleaning and tuning but i think they will be worth it.

    And they where made by an old Dutch company that had to close their doors

    a few years ago.

    Found these guys at a Christmas fair today. There were more but these are the ones I’ve actual plan to use (I’m going to regret leaving those others there). One seems to be recently used or well stored, the tongue has more rust on the blade. Tongue blade is not really matched to body tongue width, could be retrofit. I also don’t have a matching groove blade (I do have a wooden groove plane but its only blade is quite a bit wider than what this produces).

    Stupid is like stupid does, even here in rural Finland.
