« Part 5: Wooden Bullnose Moulding Plane? Part 6 of Antique Tool Box series Part 7: Tongue and Groove Wooden Plane indentification »

knock knock, knock, anyone there?
Blog series is not getting many comments, hope I have not offended any one?
Just getting started with mystery planes: Here what is coming….

Next plane that needs an identity:

Some type of moulding plane.
Makers mark says “Ohio Tool Co.” “Columbus” with “37” and EPC stamped on one end. Opposite end has “EPC and “3/16”. Plane has metal tabs on each end inserted in a groove that aligns with peak of the profile. But between the pins is wood?

-
Appreciate any information you can share to educate me on this plane’s vintage or value.
Thanks for looking!

Metal pins? Are you referring to the boxing?

I think that is what you call them? I am noob when it comes to wooden planes.
Attempted to order a couple different books on subject, but everyone is sold out and they are out of print. :(

Boxwood is usually used in high wear areas to avoid having the details abrade away to nothing. High end planes are completely made of boxwood.

I’d definitely say the EPC mark is the owner’s initials. Someone very proud to have everything.
