An interesting item

Recommended Posts

I have never seen something like that.  However, I would be reluctant to call it a wood plane.  I am sure it served some purpose, but I don't think that purpose resulted in making plane shavings.  Though I could be wrong!  :D

I cannot find a patent issue that matches for Jan 28, 1873. In the US, Tuesdays were issue dates so this is the only date that corresponds. Unless this was patented internationally, this could be a recreation or other such fabrication that could make identification difficult.

Don't need that unless your a farmer. Its a corn seeder.


That's what I thought at first.  Planter, not planer.

But they usually had a fuller shape at the base, though the overall structure is correct.
