Re: Acquired job lot of joiners tools.....

ahhh brilliant info.. I tend to agree on the kit made idea, I found it unusual that no makers stamps were on it.
As for its ability...yep it works lol. I just went out and stroped the iron a bit and had a play, transparent shavings as it sits and its probably the first time its seen wood since the owner passed away. Not quite full width as the iron could do with a good homing and I'll admit totally that setting the blade depth is new to me so getting it backed off sufficiently to allow the tool to do its job was difficult I also found really hard to set the blade square, it's a bit of an art I guess.
