A little bit of fun, something I found in a junk shop.

I have never seen anything like it, technically its a hand plane…and a router… so i guess that makes it a router plane

A horizontal router. It must have an in stop for a guide on the bottom. It looks like a 50”s tool

cheers, Jim

Yeah my dad had one of those, think he bought it used in the 50s or 60s, if you didn’t know what you were doing you could destroy a board faster than a belt sander.

Its a Stanley Carter. Great routers. Industrial grade. I have 4 of them. They’ll last forever just change the brushes in them when they go bad.

Here is one of the catalogs from 1950 you can get an idea of what else they made in that arena.
