I now have my camera and got a couple shots of it today after I honed the iron.
I did the best I could to preserve the patina on the old plane, but to get the new rosewood (?) sole planed nice and even to the plane body a little of the color had to come off. In a hundred years I bet you won't be able to tell the difference.
The cool part about having done this is the arris on the sole is now very sharp, and very hard, and I suspect very durable. It lies in a gauge line real nice.
I got a video of my first-ever by-hand rabbet with an unfenced rabbet plane.
Items of note: the wood is a scrap of maple which in hindsight might not have been ideal testing stock. I also had the iron set a bit too heavy, but it seemed to work even with the extra effort required. I'll practice this more with a lighter cut. Also, I gagued a line with my Veritas marking gague. That is all that I have the edge of the plane riding in at first.
In an effort to avoid boring you to death, the speed on this is double.
