    Yeah! Usually those tapered irons tend to be quite good as they are the result of laminating hard steel on milder one so you get the properties of both as they did in ancient times.

    Did it came with chipbreaker? It is not necessary but it helps.
    You could make a wood bodied plane as Tod suggest but bedded at a higher angle than the ones you normally use and use it for figured or rippled grain woods.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I wouldn't mind at all, send it over, tell me the angle you want on it and wether you want a jack, a smoother or a jointer and I'll bring it back to you next april. although it may be a little used by then
    Best regards,
    Toni

    You could make a simple scraper plane too with it.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
