What the heck is this?!

What is it and what's it worth?

Seocnded on it being a really, really old rabeting plane. As far as value goes, a serious collector would probably like to have it, but personally I'd pass. No room for tools that may fall apart during use in my shop

Third it being a rabbeting plane. It is probably worth $35, but its actual value is very low.

I would be on that plane like a duck on a june bug, I'd tear my pocket off getting my billfold out. They are not easy to come by, at least down this way.

Yep it's a screw arm plough plane. If the threaded posts are not cracked & the wood threads are intact, and it has its wedge & iron, and no damage to the main body, and all parts can move freely, it's probably worth about a hundred bucks to the right buyer.

The only obvious problem I see with it is that it's missing the wedge and iron. Replacing the irons is a pain, because they need to be tapered in thickness and have a groove on the back to meet the metal skate.

At this point I probably wouldn't buy a wooden plane of any sort without an iron unless it was in stupendous condition.

Or $35 at a flea market. I'd probably do that.

It is a screw arm plough plane. It uses a depth stop and fence. Originally it would have come with a set of 7 or 8 tapered blades.

Here is a bridle plough type I built ..





See here for the build, which will explain the parts: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ShopMad...oughBuild.html

Derek, that is one beautiful plane, that has to be an accomplishment that not many of us ever experience.
