I recently won an auction for a lot of 5 hand planes. They were all different makes and in pretty rough shape. I was cleaning them up a bit to see what I had to work with and got stumped with this one. I could not find any markings that would help me ID the plane. I did find one small marking which appears to be the letter U with a circle around it.
I don’t believe this plane to be worth anything and I am assuming it was cheap based on the way its made. The Frog and cap lever(?) are made out of a thinner metal. Also the blade depth adjustment knob is made of metal and has a weird star pattern. I spent some time searching pictures of many different plane makes and I couldn’t find any like this.
I don’t plan on using it so the quality and value don’t matter to me. I would just like to know what make it is or anything else that can help me ID and date it.
