In between getting a bunch of new old planes ready for resale I decided to resurrect this Sargent #5418.
This was one of those impulse buys. It was just a base and frog that had already been refinished. Anything in the #5400 series is fairly scarce, so I snapped it up.
This one has the 2 piece adjuster. I remade the tote from a piece of Honduras Rosewood.
Unfortunately the cutter is not the right vintage. It’s a bit newer than the plane itself.
