The following are pictures of an 18th century jointer that I acquired at an auction.
 The farm that this came from was started in the 1740's, and remained in the same family
until the last member passed away.

1700's Jointer

The plane, is 23 1/2 long, but only 2 3/8's wide.  Takes an 1 7/8's single iron (MIA along with the wedge).
 It is made of  yellow birch, (a common wood for 18th century American planes).
The tote is a beech  replacement.

View of the toe

This is a view of the toe of the plane.  Unfortunately, it is unsigned, the only markings under
the crud were a series of randon punch marks where this guy had seen duty as a leatherworking
anvil.  (Fortunately they are light).  The ends haven't been cut down at all, of if they were,
they were done at the same time.   (One of the ways you can tell if an 18th century plane has been cut
down is to compare the appearence of the heel and the toe if it was cut, the toe chamfers are
usually crisper than the heel, not the case here).

Side view of the toe

This side view of the toe shows the the distinctive flat chamfering of the toe and top.

View of the sole

One unique thing about this guy is the fact that the sides of the sole are chamfered.
 Not quite as steep as the the chamfers on the top, but they were planed there
and not the result of wear.

This top view shows the mouth and the striker button which is a piece of wood,
mounted endgrain out.

 Finally a close up of the tote.  Even though it is an old replacement, some one took the
time to reshape it to match the original.  Take a look at the point to the left, I
have seen totes like this on other earlier planes, the more common bench planes
are smooth all the way around.
