Topic tags/keywords: hand tools question

I found these in the tool box a friend gave me. I can’t find anything on the name. The other two do not have any markings but squeeze together. Thanks

I don’t know what the first one is. The second two are saw sets.

Top looks like a hinge mortise plane. Here is a modern version with a good summary of use.

The bottom two are saw sets.

Here’s an article I found on Lee Valley for that plane above. IMO it may have some value to it.

Patrick Leach and his supertool site have one for sale for $285 and he claims that he’s only seen 2 in his time.
