« Part 2: Ohio Tool Wood Plane Part 3 of Antique Tool Box series Part 4: Skew Plane with side nicker? »

Here is 2nd plane out of box:

Appears to be Plough Plane (did I spell that right?) :)
Has deep mark on trailing end “EPC”, like some of the other planes in chest. Not sure if makers mark, or owners mark?
The steel parts are rusty, but not stuck. Should be able use a wire brush to clean most if it. Plan Iron has a slight chamber in corners, like it was hand sharpened and actually used during its life.
There do not appear to be any cracks in wood, only bumps/bruises from use and long storage.
I am really curious on purpose of the secondary brass guide next to iron on bottom. What was it used for?

Appreciate any information you can share to educate me on this plane’s vintage or value.

Thanks for Looking!

Excellent find! Definitely get that one tuned up.
Are you referring to the brass piece in the last image? That is the depth stop I think.
