badger.jpg (149651 bytes) badger3.jpg (164491 bytes) This recently purchased unusual and interesting iron badger plane has some curious features. It is very well made, and looks to be a production made plane.

It has a gunmetal lever cap stamped "H Morton" and a blade set at a skew angle, and a very high angle from the base about 55_deg. The blade is stamped Moulson Bros. and Improved Welded. The handles are in Mahogany, and the tote has a brass plate below it, and doesn't show any method of connection to the body. (possibly a tapered sliding dovetail) The knob screw looks a little crude, and is screwed into a raised, threaded boss on the body in the style of Stanley planes.

Length 11 1/8 inch

Width 2 3/16 inch

Blade 2 inch

I looks to me like it was made in USA, but I'm not certain at all. Any information on this plane would be gratefully received.
