I recently picked up a Stanley Bailey #4 smoothing pane and a Metal Products corrugated bottom jack plane at a local tag sale this weekend for a grand total of $9 and i wanted to know if anyone knows anythign about the Metal Products plane. From what i have gathered they were produced in West Haven CT some time ago, but i have never heard of them and know nothing else about em. Ill post pictures of the as soon as i have them all restored. Thanks all.

That’s a tough question. I’ve never heard of them either but don’t consider myself a hand-plane expert or even novice. Have you tried any online research or checked OWWM?
Good luck,

Quick update .. i got in contact with a guy here in CT that is an avid collector of hand planes and through some of his sleuthing told me what i had was a PARPLUS hand plane made in West Haven CT. Not much value to it , being that the frog was machined with the body, but a piece of CT history none the less and for $4 im not dissappointed
