I knew I had a smooth smoother. This was under a Japanese plane in my drawer.
It's a type 11 with a PM-V11 blade on it. When I rearranged my drawer I put it in the back for safety and forgot about it. I remember I bought it with a Hock iron and chipbreaker from Wilson Burnham on ebay for $60. I did the tune and it works great.
Does this mean I won't buy a new one? Nah.
