I picked this up in a local used tool store. Not sure what I need to do to clean it up or leave as-is. The tote is broken, thinking about making a replacement.

That's a nice find. Do you plan to use it, or will it be part of your collection?

The bottom looks pretty wild.
Are the corrugations japaned?

They are not corragations, they are rosewood strips.

Way cool.  After reading about this plane (from Don) I always turn over old planes just to look for the rosewood strips.  Some day maybe ....

Did some cleanup of the plane over the past couple of days, still some work to do to it. I have not yet cleaned on the handle or started making a new tote (or repairing the existing one). I have not cleaned the sides of the plane body, not have i spent a lot of time on the details in the cap knob.
