which left that wood bodied Jack plane...

 

Needed a blade/iron/cutter.....Well, I did have a chunk of decent iron handy..

Great save and re-purpose. I'd just seen a YOu-tube about re-using old lawn mower blades to make irons & chisels...hadn't thought of that...probably need to dig some out of the scrap iron pile???

Any maker name or city on the body anywhere? Is the handle dovetailed into the body? Gonna' be a pretty nice 'ole user plane when you get done with it.

Handle seems to have been dovetailed in...then a "plug" was added to lock it in place...with a nail into each.   May try to redo.

 

Iron is 1/4" thick!    Sparks were "forked"....first few grinds, I used oil to cool it down a bit....last one was with water.....now, I need to go out and buy a few new hacksaw blades....now have two hacksaw blades without any teeth.

 

Someone had "forged"  a round handle on the end....long ago.   May look at using the non-handle section....IF I can hammer it flat....has a bit of a curve to it...

 

Haven't found much of any markings on the body...yet.

IF I read the scratchings on the toe....I seem to see an O H I O   as in Ohio Tool Co.   out of Columbus, OH.  factory was washed away during the 1913 floods....they merged with Auburn Tool Co. after that.    I seem to recall a factory up river at Charleston, WV.....

You can use those slick hacksaw blades for small knives! Looks good when you put a deer antler on for handle!
