I know nothing about planes. Well, other than the fact I can't use one for crap. Not the planes fault, but mine for sure. I've been meaning to get a few books, I guess it's one of those 'round-to-its'.

Today at our community yard sales my wife bought me this plane for $5. It's rusty, mostly surface, no pitting. The handle is broken and aside from a chip off the top, it looks like it's all there. It's 15" long and appears to be all there, just not put together correctly.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks ~Bumpus

Looks like a transitional, as in in-between all wood and all metal planes, where the frame is metal, but the sole is wood.

The cap iron is on backwards, so the seller also did not know much about planes.

Looks like a transitional jack plane.

Any hint on the manufacturer, sometimes stamped on the front of the wooden sole.

Sometimes the blade stamp is a clue.
