I picked up my #16 hollow last week to dress up the bit (unboxing the shop after being in storage for several years) and noticed the iron is skewed (@12d). It’s labeled a Cox & Luckman and the body is straight (Did not warp at the mouth). The iron and wedge at least match the body in fit and patina if not the originals.
Is this an anomaly or were some hollows made with skewed throats and irons and does it matter in use? I would assume the cut would yield the same result, but maybe a bit easier on end grain.
If this is an unusual plane, I want to park it with the collectables rather than put it into service. at this point, it may have been turped, but does not appear to be modified.
