Turns out this old plow guts I bought for the parts almost qualifies for early american!*

Now I feel that I need to rebuild this here and put it back to work. Gladwin & Platts, Wallingford CT, prior to 1850, I put at betwixt 1840 and 1850. The wood screws are square ended.

*the validity of this statement is subject to interpretation.

Yeah, I’d hate to hear what the PC crowd would say.
The plane looks worthy of effort.

That'll be tough to find the parts, but worth the effort.

I think the most likely scenario will be that I make a new fence by first buying or making a new wood tap. It looks like a 7/16 but those are very far between in the old tool world. Machine taps don't make correct threads for these so it has to be either the old type or at least the right size...I don't want to bore these open to 3/4 to get a common modern size in.
