Hello,
I’m a long time Lurker on this site & frequently come here for answers and inspiration but this is my 1st post.

I’m going to an auction in a couple weeks and have been studying (drooling) over the hand planes being offered. There are several planes with a a type of frog/adjustment mechanism that I’ve not seen before. Can anyone identify the type of plane circled in red? My guess was a Sargent of some kind but I’m not very knowledgeable on that brand of planes.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Thanks,
Andrew

Funny thing, I picked up one just like it at an auction a couple months ago. I think I paid $10 for it. I was able to find the patent for it and if I recall (the file is at home and I’m not) it was made in the late 30’s. Not what I’d call a great tool, but for $10 and a little sharpening, it’s good for rough work.

If you want a good user, I’d look to it’s neighbors. But if you can get it cheap, it is an interesting example.

I believe that is a DeWalt 733X.

Thanks for the info. There are several good users in this sale. Hopefully I’ll come home with a few deals.
