« Part 14: Wooden Moulding Plane ID? Part 15 of Antique Tool Box series no next part

This is last plane from magical tool chest:

It is little beat up, body has some cracks; and screws have been installed to keep plane together. The handle also has a brass reinforcement plate that looks like an add-on.
Marking is “EPC” again.
Plane has 2 blades: skew blade to cut groove or rabbit, and flat blade cut with small extended nicker’s on very edge before the skew blade. Definitely looks like a unique plane?



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

Thanks for looking!

This is last of wooden planes in tool chest.
There is one odd wooden fence that does not fit any of the planes that I have not shared pictures. There is also an antique brass hand pump that had nasty hardened oil reside inside. My 1st guess is the pump was used to store tallow that was used to lubricate planes? But since the gentlemen that inherited the chest from his grand father who actually used this chest passed over 10 years ago, no one will really ever know. :(

Interesting brass strapping on the handle, very resourceful.
That might be a dado plane, since it has dual knickers to sever the cross grain fibers.
