Offered is an Primitive Woodworking Adjustable Plow Plane w/Bone Insert. This is a wonderful example of an early unmarked woodworking tool with crude construction and repairs by a semi skilled craftsman. For example, there are scribe marks that extend beyond their desired point. The metal working skate is crudely riveted to the wood. Various early forged screws and nuts secure the sliding arms. To add to the charm of this early tool is a horn repair to the fence.
The condition is commensurate with the honorable wear one would expect of an antique utilitarian woodworking tool. The patina is wonderful with a smooth brownish finish, various scratches and dings and mild wear. The blade and wedge do not exist.
