i found this plane in a yard sale and the only engrave sing is the no-4 at the back of the front knob, i was hoping to identify it by the bed and the frog but did not found it, the closer i got it is by the front knob who look like an acorn plane, any clue about this plane thanks

sorry for my english but my first language is french!!!

Looks like you’ve got yourself a nice Fulton there.

Might look up Estes for a brand name. As, that is the style of frog they used.

Some had lever caps, some used a bolt..

Plus..iF you check on the angle the frog holds the iron…..you may find the angle is 50 degrees, York Pitch…instead of the “normal” 45 degrees. Simply because they angled the base the frog sits on.

Planes were also sold under a Dunlap label at Sears & Roebuck…...

Both were made in West Germany to the best of my knowledge, so it’s quite likely.

bandit it look very similar i think you nail it

mine having most of it black does it mean that it is holder or the red was made at the same period of time

for the lever cap and the blade i cannot say if they are original

thank to all of you it give me a point to make more reserch

I think German smooth planes in general are 50 degree, at least the traditional wood ones.

With bevel down the angle of attack is set by the frog not the bevel
