Can any of you hand plane experts help me identify this EC Emmerich Wooden Hand Plane? Specifically, I want to answer 2 questions.
1. The approximate age. I know it’s older since it doesn’t have the 2 different woods on modern ECE planes. And it doesn’t have a way to adjust the blade from side to side. But I see that they still offer a non-adjustable jointer plane (see last pic from ECE website).
2. The purpose/use of this plane. It is long so maybe it’s for jointing?
I picked this up at a flea market for $3 and thought it would be fun to restore. I don’t believe the blade is original. It also doesn’t seem to be used much. If the blade was used, it seems like it would have evidence of hammer marks – both on the back of the blade and on that little metal circle that is on the front of the plane.
Modern ECE Jointer Plane for reference:
Any thoughts on the age and use would be much appreciated!
