The woman of the house has been car boot shopping again. To stop me nagging she picked up a plane for 25 crowns approximately 3 USD.
Its a hybrid. Wooden sole (beech?) and iron blade and mechanics. Blade is marked UNION New England USA. First time I see one. What is it called? Something to keep, sell or chuck away? fairly goog condition too, Just need to hone the blade and wash the dust of it. I hope.

They're called "Transitional" planes. A lot of companies made them, including Stanley. Here's some info on them from Patrick. http://www.supertool.com/StanleyBG/stan4.htm
