Yes I was being tight!!!!that kind would be OK - an earlier mathieson, i.sorby or ward would have a better chance of being a good iron and the cap iron will be functionally better in most cases.
But isn't the body one made to fit a 2 1/2" blade?
Link to eBay page??Afternoon Gents
So this is a little weird, I was looking for a forum to sign up to to sell on, found this one and searched for Emir.....
Basically I'm mjsmith_jsmith on ebay.
JobandKnock, good to hear you like the plane!!
So I thought I'd give a bit of background.
Short story long. I was indeed searching an online auction "bidspotter" and came across the closing down auction of Emir tools, 90% of the gear on there was way out of my wage bracket, ( CNC machine going for £20,000) then came to two lots of "contents of racking" that no one had bid on.
Being bored on a nightshift I placed the minimum bid on both............and won.
3 journeys from Essex to Ashford later ( 2 in wife's seven seater, 1 in a long wheel base transit) and I'm now the proud owner of a shed full of ex Emir stock.
to give you some idea .... this was my decking after three days of transferring it all back home (in the process of being replaced)
