Topic tags/keywords: mystery antique plane

Just wondering if anyone on here could identify this mystery plane.

It’s about the size of a Stanley 4 1/2.

Looks a bit Sargent, Gage ish or even Leonard Bailey esque.

Thanks in advance,
Roger

Try posting on the “hand plane of your dreams” thread if you don’t much of a response here. They have a lot of hand plane aficionados on that thread regularly.

It actually looks shop made to me,, but totally unlike anything I’ve seen before.

Thanks, should have mentioned the rear handle looks like a replacement.

Can’t see any marks on the iron or cap but a tad rusty I’ve only tried gentle methods so far (oil and tooth brush).

Coin collectors suggest distilled water, takes ages but gentle, any suggestions ?

That is very cool. Maybe a brass brush and a little wd40 in the spots where a logo might be?
