This one has me stumped. I can barely—but not quite—read the logo on the blade, but the configuration of the blade in the frog and the straps on it should be enough to enable someone out there in Lumberjacksland to give me a brand on this thing,

It’s 14-1/2” long.

Thanks in advance!
Al

Nothing 14” long is really a “jointer plane.”

I use the img button above the body of the post. 14” is a jack size like they said.

Thanks for helping me locate the img button. Of course I couldn’t find it—it was right in front of me!

Chapin’s Patent plane….someone had cut off the back end. Should be another 4 – 6” behind the rear handle.

Looks like Chapin’s patent plane is the winner—thanks!
