Either a capewell, or a Worth brand of plane by Pexto…

I agree with Bandit, it could also be a very late Fulton. The U is a casting mark.

Stamped steel frog and stamped lever cap. It’s possible for that plane to do some basic work, but don’t expect too much in the way of fine performance. Those are not indicators of a well-made tool.

That’s what I thought smitty, only thing I did was put in a sharp blade and ran it over some scrap boards it will work for some basic stuff, it is a lot of stamped parts but there clean, adjustment knob turns smooth besides its free. What I meant by well made is the stampings are clean no jagged edges it all fits together smooth, if nothing else ill clean it up real good put it on a shelf people will think its a nice old antique (people who come to my shop wouldn’t know a hand plane from a chisel)

Good comeback! But I think it would be more effective if the bullets were IN the gun, in the event someone DOES try to touch your tools ! LOL

nice plane, fyi the gun you see is always a decoy, its the one you dont see that gets ya, old hillbilly trick. That one is a little SW airwieght .38, I had cleaned it for mom. Nice lil .38 my cousin was thinking of getting one she has small hands I borrowed that from mom to let her try it out. Talk about touching tools my Grandfather had an old hound dog that would lay in the shop it would bite anyone who touched anything if grandpa wasn’t there, except grandma lol dog was scared of grandma

JW, sounds like we’re on the same page w/ the stamped parts. Have fun with it, and keep your eyes open for some cast iron planes to play with in the future (if you haven’t used them already). It’s amazing what a hand plane or block plane can do when it’s tuned and sharp.
