    I picked this up recently from an antique shop.
    Think it is a router plane as the blade is only about half the width of the body. A screw comes in from the front to hold the blade firmly in place once set.
    No makers markings to be found.
    Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    it could be a hinge mortising plane, it looks similar to a cast iron veritas plane offered by lee valley.
    many wooden planes are stamped on the heel or toe with the makers name

    I think that Barry is right.

    It looks to me like an exceptionally nice user-made tool.

    What is the metal part at the front, on the handle area?

    Thanks for your replys Barry and Dave.

    After looking into the hinge mortising plane I would agree with you guys.

    Colin, the metal part on the front is a long screw.
    The screw is threaded through the metal circle.
    The screw when tightened holds the cutting blade firmly in place against its bed.

    Thanks,
    Josh
