    Wow, you're right!

    Either this is one clueless person, or someone who WANTS us to think they are clueless.

    It looks like someone jammed the wedge and iron portion of an old woodie under the adjuster knob of an old No3.

    Darned shame when you see hand tools treated like this. It's almost as bad as painting a nature scene on a saw!
    See ya around,

    Not just weird, but ugly, rusty and probably useless. But let's not forget, it's an antique.

    Dominic, I'm surprised at you. You always seem to know so much about planes. Clearly, this is a very rare COMBINATION plane.

    All the best,
    Ken

    Well Vaughn at least it isnt all Pink like the range of tools I saw for women at the recent woodworking show.

    Looking at the ebay sellers store I dont think they did this deliberately I think they really just dont know most of the stuff is not even remotely near this category of goods. Guess someone is selling grandpas stuff.
    cheers

    1) The eBay combo plane is just a hunka junka.

    2) Vaughn, you must be crusin' for permanent sofa time.
