This is an Auburn try plane I came across and have put back into service. A previous owner had salvaged parts from a metal plane, apparently to make it more like a more modern plane and to replace a missing tote. I though it quite inventive to cut the tote mounting area of the metal plane and install it in order to use the metal plane tote. I fabricated a new tote, flattened the sole, and re-mouthed it.
One thing I really like about this plane is the indentations near the toe where previous users have gripped the plane during many years of use. It’s like shaking hands with the previous owners.
