The red block plane looks like an Anant or similar – Indian manufacture and cheap. I have one I use for “rough” work – like planing paint off stuff – or working a board that may have a nail in it. It will never be top quality, but it’s not without its merits. It’s probably worth a good sharpening to keep around for the odd rough job.
