Yes, definitely a block plane, not sure who your maker is, but that is a clone of the Stanley 110

I’ve got two of them, but have found that they’re a real pain in the butt to adjust, I find that the 60 1/2 and or a 9 1/2 is much easier to use.

There are many sites for Stanley plane info, Patrick's Blood & Gore is a good one. Wood & Shop has a sort of plane info calculator that can pretty quickly get you into the “zone” of what plane you’re looking at. And of course there are several other LJ’s here that know far more than I do, but what I have learned is that plane collecting can get addictive & expensive.

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
