Daren.......

I think you are correct. Except this looks like a more "industrial" mass produced cast Iron version of the hand made craftsman's type shown previously.

not so much modern, as simply part of the industrial revolution. A gaslighters spill plane before streetlights. Or a bartenders.

yeah, i get ya. i can see the progression through the industrial revolution. a lot of the tools i use in metal work haven't changed much since the early 1900's.

Daren, what makes you think it's a "Spill Plane"?

I can see the resemblance to the previous example in his link -though I think that the blade angle is wrong for that purpose, and the "spill" opening looks restricted.
And it's hard to tell if that is a pivoting base, or an adjustment relating to the two screws on the exit end base.

the resembalence is in the tool aspect, that is, the function performed on the object, not in the appearance or materials of the tool. a yellow wood pencil and a marks-a-lot don't look much alike, but they both put a dark line on a paper.

what makes you think it isn't? :lol: 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!! :P

""Where is the resemblance?""

how can you not see the resemblance?
