Had a big time this morning at the flea market. Ended up with 6 more hand saws, three or four of them showing etches, and this guy. I can’t find any identifying markings on it but it’s just a sweet little thing. Maybe someone has seen it before?

Very cool! Never seen one like it. But you may want to search Jim Bode’s site, even his sold stuff stay on the site.

Great find! Not a Stanley… Interesting that it has no front knob like a Stanley #112. Love the pitch adjustment, unique…

Here is one like it for sale if you want another. It is only $1,400.00, but yours looks like it is in better shape. I don’t know much about planes, but I did a Google image search. I hope this made your day.

It’s kinda cool when you see something like that. :-)

I’d be checking mine for initials, something like JJ lol.

Thank You 4wood, that is VERY interesting…and they are quite similar. I’ll have to try that Google image search tool out.

@therealSteveN LOL

What’s the story behind it? How did you acquire it?

Guessing you paid a lot less than $1400. Nice find. Picked it up since it looked interesting or thought it was rare?

Very Cool. If you compare to the one Jim Bode has for sale, yours is more complete. Yours still has the single bolt that locks the angle, which matches the patent drawing. On his, it looks like it was replaced with 2 screws with nuts.

I just wonder what you do with your other hand while using it. I guess with your free hand you can check your twitter feed on your phone. :-)

Your other hand is probably continuously adjusting the angle trying to get it to work as good as a card scraper ;)

Apparently you have never used a scraper plane that worked properly?:-)
