Need help with a Moulson Brothers Plane

JackFish's picture

OK, I found a new baby to bring home this weekend.  Picture attached.  This is a big plane, 31" long.  Iron is 2 3/8 wide, about 3/16ths thick.  Marked Moulson Brothers.

Given the age and where I found it, the sole is super flat.  It's in really good condition.  So, my basic questions are:

Does anyone know where I can get more info on the maker?  I'd like to get a sense of the age of the plane.

Any idea of value?  I'd like to use it, but if it's super-rare, maybe I shouldn't.

 

Thanks!

It looks like a craftsman-made plane with an old iron. It's hard to say how old it may be but it's unlikely that it's very old.

I would agree with lwilliams. (post #168636, reply #2 of 2)

I would agree with lwilliams. looks like an old iron in a recent craftsman made plane. Put it to work. It never hurts to ask about the value of a tool but most aren't as valuable, money wise, as some newer planes.

Beat it to fit / Paint it to match
