Item WP25- Small Scrub Plane (European) with Copper Sole

This unusual plane has the wedge and leading nose platform of a small European bench plane.  But the sold has a good radius to it, and the sole is nicely sheathed with copper, fixed with slotted screws.  The sole length is 8 inches and the width is 2 inches.  The steeply cambered single blade is 1 1/2 inches wide and marked by Burys & Co. an old but major steel firm in the Birmingham, England region.  The plane body is made from a fairly coarse grain wood, something like hickory, while the wedge is a much finer grain wood.  Were this my plane, I'd set the blade for a fairly coarse cut and use it as a scrub plane.  It looks as if it could hog off waste rapidly. .  Good+
