Whoa, that is an old one and a really cool one! I’m going to be interested to learn about it here.

If not marked “Stanley”, it is a copy of a Stanley #48 or #49 tongue and groove plane.

The fence can be swivelled 180 degrees to expose either all, or half of the blade.
In this way, the plane can cut either the tongue or groove of a T&G joint.

To rotate the fence, pull up on the pin just below the front knob.

read about them HERE about halfway down the page.

It appears, from the photos, that you’re missing a blade (there should be two)

It looks to me like an early Stanley 48 or 49 tongue and groove plane. What is marked “Harwood”, the body or the iron? and how is it marked? (stamped, part of the casting, etc.)

That looks like an owner or possibly a distributor stamped their name on the tool, not a manufacturer. Still going with an early Stanley.

I agree with JayT. I think you have a very early #49 or #49. Probably a type 1. Very cool.
