Been starting to scope the occasional garage sale for hand tools and came across this guy last Saturday. It appears to be a knock-off of a Stanley #4 bench plane that is Made in Sweden. I am therefore assuming that the irons are of Swedish steel, which is always a good thing. It's slightly rusted but not pitted and should clean up half decent. The plastic tote and knob are a little less than desirable compared to some nice wood fictures, but could easily be swapped out if need be. For $7, i'm gonna say score.
Lazy rainy saturday around here today, tending to and taking in the new little Oskar. Life is good.
