    Handplane my wife bought me

    Last Sunday morning Lou and I went to a swap meet. Kind of like a Flea Market except it accepts animals, guns, and all things in between for sale. I did buy Lou 20 - 10 week old pullets so when I was looking at a plane, she dickered with the guy and bought it for $25.00 (got him down from $40.00). Now, I am not a handplane guy. But I know this is different. Don't know if it is old, but hopefully you people can educate me on this. What is its correct name? Is it a rabbit plane? Did she get as good a bargain as I thought she did?



    First picture is of the irons that came with it and its wedge.

    Second picture is of the plane upside down.

    Third picture is of one of its sides.

    Another shot of the irons and the plane.

    Plane on end.

    Plane and its other side.

    So what do you have to say?????????????

    Oh, oh. You sent the invisible ink pictures and I didn't see them soon enough.

    Very odd. I see the thumbnails, but clicking on the pictures gives me an invalid attachment.

    Third or fourth time is the charm? Man, has it been that long since I posted photos? Brent, is that better now?
