    This is part of a collection of antique wood molding planes in our local historical society museum. I'd like to know what it was called.

      There is one on e-bay that they say is for wagon wheels. Hope this helps! Welcome to C.W.!

      Only one photo to go on but I think it might be a coopers croze plane to cut a croze groove around the inside of a barrel into which the top and bottom fit.

      I very much appreciate your help and suggestions. The idea of a coopers croze plane resonates with me because the cooperage "industry" was very active in this small village here on Cape Cod in the 1800's. And of course, wagon wheels were ubiquitous too. Maybe it could have been used to make both.

      Definitely a croze. As Irishcollector said, it cuts a groove on the inside of a curved surface. There is no operation in wheel-making where this would apply.

      Looks like that would put sweat on your brow ! It doesn't seem to offer any easy ways to use.

      Thank you UncleRon. That definitely helps and certainly makes sense.
