These were dropped off at my office for me, I’m not certain what they are. The previous owner just said that they haven’t been used in about a hundred years that he knows of.
Obviously they’re older wooden planes, the bigger of the two measures 20×2.75×2.75, the other is similar dimensions but 17” long. The odd thing is that they both have iron soles that are screwed on but there is a secondary iron sole screwed on that only covers half the bottom and isn’t straight across but has a curve to it.
The smaller is missing the blade but I picked up a replacement wood bodied plane blade that can be cut down. Also, any recommendations for cleaning them, current plan is a citrus oil and wax mix that I can rub in with 000 steel wool to clean and preserve them with. At this time I haven’t found any makers marks.
I also recieved a plow plane but it is too cracked to be useful, missing the iron and the wedge.
