I was going to hold out on posting this until I got a few more to add to my collection but I think this one may stand on its own. It's a Union 4-1/4 with an adjustable mouth. There is little known about this and was probably a prototype of some sort. I could go on and on but I know Dons dying to see the pics! [smile] This is my blind luck in finding hand planes BTW Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpeg, Views: 63, Size: 831.78 KB Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpeg, Views: 69, Size: 2.10 MB Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpeg, Views: 57, Size: 2.02 MB Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpeg, Views: 53, Size: 1.90 MB Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpeg, Views: 53, Size: 1.16 MB

Yeah that's what I said Glen! Loosen the front knob a little and the mouth is adjustable.

Now I've seen everything! The only other bench plane I know of, with an adjustable mouth is the Stanley no. 10 and 10 1/2, type 1.

I recall reading about this one. Thought it was one of those "not gonna see one" things.

I think it still is Glen, unless we plan a trip to florida and converge on Angie's place

Angie, glad to see you posted it here.  I knew it would get some deserved attention. 

Don, the dimensions are the same as a #4 at 9" long with a 2" iron.

Angie, if you decide to sell, just send me an email, as I know it would look good next to my 4-3/8....[smile]

A man just can not have a 4 1/4 AND a 4 3/8! I'm pretty sure there is a law written about that!!

Lol... Well, laws are meant to be broken, and in this case, I'd gladly do so.  [smile]
