Looks like a spokeshave missing some parts.

Bailey made planes. Some types still used a wood shoe.

Way off topic, but this way I'm certain my question will be seen by Steve. In the thread about the Museum and Board etc that was deleted by the powers that be, what was your quote on conspiracy theory and competency? I was going to write it down, but ........it's gone!

I think Nicholas Lingg is right, part of a transitional plane. Gets my vote anyway.

Aha! As I suspected. I'll watch for the other parts.

Charles, I'm not sure I remember it exactly, but it was something like The existence of vast conspiracies would require a sudden, widespread outbreak of competence. It first occurred to me in connection with the JFK assassination, but I think it applies generally. Considering our capacity for human error, I sometimes think it's amazing that anything works at all.

The local NAPA owner collects vintage planes and restores them. Last spring I bought a plane I knew was odd and vintage at the local parts swap meet for ten dollars. Checked it out and found out it was a carriage makers plane worth two to four hundred. Sold it to the NAPA owner the same day for hundred fifty. Have sold many planes to him like the picture above. I get great service and good prices from NAPA!!

Steve, Thanks. That is so succinct. I've heard Charles Krauthammer express a similar idea, but not in so few words.

Paul Vito, I've got news for you.
You are not the only one that gets good service and prices from NAPA.
Last week I could have save nearly two days of screwing around if I'd gone to NAPA first.

I am going to check my "junk boxes" and dig out the old planes my Grandfather used since he was a carpenter.
Maybe there is a wood plane collectors website to check on them for collecting purposes.

Good information!

Well Gary I don't need an opener for that photo just a ladder :-)
