Picture 5 of 15 from Album My Antique Stanley Plane collection
Stanley #71 Router plane. And here you thought routers are the stuff of the modern workshop. Nope! They've been around much longer than that. These routers are pushed or pulled, and are suited for smoothing the bottom of a groove, mortice, or whatever, which is lower than the general surface of the piece being worked. They were very popular tools, especially with patternmakers and stairbuilders.
