Can I keep it? Winkgrin 
   
Was hanging up in an Antique Mall....screwed to an Oak plank, and labeled "Dowel Cutter".   A little rough.. Rolleyes 
   
Had some strange and some missing parts... Uhoh
   
Price, including the Oak plank...$32.50 Confused plus a 3 block walk, both ways.   Plus sales Tax... Angry

Might be worth the trip? Confused
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Interesting Router Plane ...

With your turning skills, I see 2 knobs.. a little rehab and you'd have that pulling shavings!

too bad about that broken stub of clamping bolt on the blade clamp.  By the time you finish removing the stub, the hole may be ready for retapping - and then you can retap to a standard thread and buy a thumbscrew at the hardware store.

Nice find. I’ve been looking for one of those for a bit. Old tool hunting is pretty limited here.

Lets see...soaked the clamp in PBBlaster for a while.   Then easy-out to remove most of the broken bolt..
   
And then cleaned the sole a bit....had to dig through the tap & die box...
   
And dig out a 1/4" x 20 tap, and a wrench...and a drill bit...drilled a bit..and then the tap..
   
Find 2 knobs that seemed to match each other...
   
Then went to work and the cutter...trying to get past the pits, straighten the edge, and get it sharp...
   
Bought the adjuster disc on ebay....and a pair of thumbscrews....which ran the cost of the plane up by $20 or so...regrind the tip of the bolt..
   
To the required point. assembled the plane, as best as I could.. Rolleyes 
   
Set up a test track...
   
Knifed 2 lines, marked with a pencil, deepened with a backsaw...and set the cutter... Winkgrin 
   
And gave it a test drive..
   
Wheel gets here thursday mailbox....will see how it looks like, then,   Just under $55-$60 for this plane...so far...
Stay tuned... Cool

The cutters for Lee Valley's router plane were designed to fit the Stanley, too, although you have to flip the adjuster wheel over, I think because they're longer.

Nice save.
