Can anyone help identify this strange plane?
I'm not even sure what it's used for. It came out of a tool chest that's been in the family, originally from a carpenter working in Connecticut around 1825 - 1850. Most of the other tools in the chest can be dated to around that time period, but this one has no identifying marks on it anywhere that I could find. In fact, I don't even know what kind of plane it is. Anyone know what this plane is used for (or who made it)? The two fences have me really confused. First because there's two of them, and second, because there seems to be some sort of channel in both-- note the curved wood and square channel in each fence. Any pointers are much appreciated!
