I picked this up off Kijiji after thinking about it for a while. The plane looked very good in the pictures, but at the $30 price I was afraid sometning must be wrong with it. I had my son pick it up and he brought it home today. It comes with the original box, and TBH, I don't think it's ever been used. It has the factory edge with no sign of ever being honed, and no chips or wood dust hiding out in the nooks and crannies. The blade is in near new condition and it came with the original box. No way to tell its age, as far as I know, but a plane in beatiful condition that will be a valued user in my shed.

I have already honed it. Now I'll have to cut some tenons and rabbets to try it on. :rolleyes:

Oh, the marks on the side of the plane body looked like a bit of rust, but turned out to be some sort of gummy substance that rubbed off easily. I'm a happy bunny! :D

I think you did quite well on your purchase Roger. I wouldn't have hesitated a second were I to find a 75 with box in mint condition (used or new). They stopped making that model in 1973 btw.
