Found this gem yesterday -
Box.jpg

Wooden box too - I've only seen cardboard ones before.
..and inside

looks all complete :)

It looks almost brand new too

Blades show little wear and all are quite sharp :)

It's pristine!

Given that I don't own a plough plane and will make good use of it I thought it was a bargain at £18 :D

Nice tool, and a good price for mint in box, like you say you haven't got one so you struck gold my friend :)

You get manky ones on eBay that cost almost that for postage (about £11 p&p)

Hope it serves you well, personally im not a fan of combination planes.

Nice buy; I suspect the box was user made; it's quite a late tool (it has the blade holding side-screw in addition to the normal clamp).

Thanks for the info Bugbear- I had only seen cardboard boxes before so wasn't sure if perhaps it was an early model, as you say the blade holding screw suggests otherwise!
I guess the fact the owner made a box for it and applied the labels to it is testament to someone who cared and looked after their tools, I really ought to uphold that tradition :)
