what makes you think it isn't?
just look at it. the square downward legs on the left side obviously designed to hook over the edge of a table. look at the taper of the mouth (were the spill exits). it's made so that the shaving curls around itself to form the spill. it's true that the rake of the blade edge is a bit excessive, but it may have been an attempt to make it easier to push the stock through (it does help to cant a plane when cutting).
the two screws are nothing more than a blade clamp. in the pic, you can just see the tail end of the blade hanging out the bottom of the boss.
if it isn't a spill plane it would sure as hell make spills anyways!! ""Where is the resemblance?""
how can you not see the resemblance?
