Silly question perhaps, has anyone ever heard of a lock mitre molding plane? would it be much harder to make than any other complex molding plane?

I would think you would want it in a shooting type plane. Then you’d need a way to adjust it to get the “lock” correct.

Never seen a plane that would do that.
Isn’t a lock miter joint a 45 deg miter with a tounge and groove parallel to the mating faces?

If you’re working with 12/4 material, a donkey’s ear jig and a tounge and groove plane Might be made to work.

Miter with a dovetail key may be more practical.
