    Plane is approximate 43" x 4" x 6". Wood species unknown. Supposedly dated 1767. Ethnic stamps throughout. Blade (knife) is present. Was presented to me as a possible Dutch ship building implement. Does anyone have insight?

      Really cool, hope you find some information.

      I think it might be a coopers plane. Rather than move the plane over the work, this plane is held upside down by legs inserted into the round holes. The cooper then moves the work along the plane.

      I'll second that, Irishcollector!

      Irishcollector hejesen látod hogyan használták , annyit tennék hozzá , hogy a másik végét ahol nincs láb a gyalupadba rögzítették.
    5. Karl-Fodor, 3 years ago
      Nekem is van egy ekkora gyalum 1852-ben készült , az körtefából van . Fotó alapján nehéz meghatározni , de valószín? a tied is vagy körte vagy almafa.

      I also have such a planer made in 1852, it is made of pear. It is difficult to determine from a photo, but probably yours is either a pear or an apple tree.
    7. Karl-Fodor, 2 years ago
      Irishcollector correctly see how it was used, I would add that the other end is fixed on a planer bench.
    8. Karl-Fodor, 2 years ago
      Apparently, they were used extensively in port cities as much was stored in barrels on ships.

      he year is realistic. The knife has this factory mark?
