Topic tags/keywords: block plane

I picked this little guy up in Sutter Creek, CA a couple a weeks ago while antiquing.



I have been trying to determine who made it but I keep coming up short.
I find no markings on the body or the iron.
I was thinking maybe Union because of the indention on the side of the body.
Anyone care to take a guess?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

My guess would be Great Neck

Is the lever cap aluminum? I have one like that.

Yep it sure is Paul.
I have never had one with the adjustable throat. It was rusted in place but a long dip in Evaporust straightened that out.

Thanks fellas for the information. I will post a follow up picture after I get it all cleaned up.
Hopefully it is one I can find a use for.
