Hi James,

Any chance of a photo of your new acquisition?

My personal view is to do as little as possible to the plane, just what is necessary to get it producing shavings. To this end my first task would be to sharpen the blade, re-fit it & try the plane out, this will be the best guide to what needs rectifying, if anything.

Good luck with it.
