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

I'm assuming the back screws might adjust the height of the outfeed portion's table therefore it might even be called a jointer..used for smoothing edges of boards for gluing,clamping,joining them together..like a power jointer can be adjusted. :DB:
It might even be used for building boats!Eh,Daren? :DB: :DB:

One more note..there is a small adjustment lever hanging out the back end for adjustiing the blade either in heighth,cut,or angle..could BE some kind of strip boatbuilder's plane...

What if I told you it was a "Confectioners Plane" for making chocolate curls for cake decorating?
