Was down in my dads shop today going through drawers and found this plane (?). Its a Stanley SW, US PAT 9-7-15

Both me and my dad looked it over for a while and couldn’t really figure out exactly what it was. I did some research online and learned that its some type of profile plane. I am just not sure what number plane this is and if it is even complete. I only have what is in the picture. Is this part of a combination plane set? I couldn’t find any photos of this so I am just not sure what number it is.

It’s not a plane, it’s a gauge to mark siding to length at corner boards, casing and such.

It’s patent #1,153,171 and you can view on on Google patents:
The patent was by Henry Neistadt and assigned to Stanley Rule and Level Co.
