That is how it was found. It came from a relative of a guy who worked for Millers Falls.

I know this plane. It's not mine. I wish it were!

As far as I can tell, that is a legit prototype. It has a model number under the frog: "0".


Edit: it is in the recess for the cap iron screw, not under it.

As far as can be told. These are what it was found with. All the seller did was clean them up and he didn't use any abrasives.

I was just talking to him about this plane a day or so ago. It'll be interesting to see if he gets the 45. I tend to doubt it, but we'll see, eh?

Yup. I have no reference for this kind of thing, so we'll see.
