Testing out a refurb of an estate sale find, a Sargent VBM 407. It’s similar size to a Stanley #2. Also first try of it’s big brother. A new to me Lie Nielsen # 4 1/2. Very nice surprise Christmas gift.

And a pic from a recent home repair project. Repair of an old attic window sash. Happened to have an old Manchester England double blade sash plane that gave me a very close match.

Ok, I'll bite.   Record #778, two support posts for fence, most robust version of the 78 out there.  Works very, very well.

There is something wrong with your plane blade.  The shavings have to many holes in them.
