Seen quite a few transitional plane in antique stores and on line.
A lot of them had cracks and chips and so forth, so really never paid to much attention to them. One caught my eye on a ending soon, looked good from the pics, had a low price on it, so I pulled the trigger on it.
Never cleaned one up till now, was kind of nice not to deal with a whole lot of rust, but there was a bunch of sanding to do, but that was fun.
Still have to sharpen the iron and do a little more fine tuning, already done the sole and refinished it.
Before and after.

Thank you finally done, blade still needs a little more work and maybe some frog adjustment.
And yes that is a tomato plant hanging upside down and in Dec.
Had to put that in there for the wife...;)

It's sweet, getting a little chatter in birch wood, blade is not sharp enough.
This is the first time I have used a transitional plane, but am impressed.:thumbsup:
