    A while back, I picked up a Miller Falls 22c (a jointer plane, if you don’t know) at an estate sale. I am in the process of restoring it, and the chip breaker and the iron are in pretty rough shape. The iron is bent (!?) at the heal. And both are oxidized reddish-black. Also the iron is relatively thin. I would guess 2/3 the thickness of the iron in my #4

    I have bought replacement irons for my #4 but I have no idea where to find irons for this thing. Would it be worth talking to a blacksmith?

    I’m in Colorado, US for what its worth.

    As near as I can tell the blade is the same size as a Stanley 7. Any aftermarket 2 ⅜” blade should work as the frog is the same.

    You can find new old stock blades for this plane on Ebay.

    Check with Lee Valley. They sell replacement blades and cap irons, both the thin ones or the upgraded ones in O1, A2, or PMV. The thin ones work fine. I’ve got several MF planes, and Stanley irons work fine.

    If you go the vintage blades route, make sure there are no rust pits on the back of the blades.
