« Part 11: Wooden Moulding Plane - large round groove? Part 12 of Antique Tool Box series Part 13: Wooden Moulding Plane - 3/4 nose profile? »

Here we go again:

This plane is another round groove profile, roughly 1/2 wide.
Marking stamp on this one is “AUBURN TOOL Co” “AUBURN N.Y.” with a star in middle. Opposite end has “No. 180” and “6” stamped on it. This plane has some holes in body with countersink for using screws to attach something?


Appreciate any information you can share to educate me on this plane’s vintage or value.
Thanks for looking!

The “6” is probably referring to the size of that moulding plane. It’s called a round, and it goes with a matching hollow.
Here’s a great primer, with some other reading:
