Hi Lexreus,

It is a Stanley #75 bull nose rabbet plane and can be used anywhere that you need a short, small, rabbet plane. The bull nose feature allows it to reach closer to a confined area such as a stopped rabbit. It is intended that the blade can  be adjusted (as for all rabbet planes) so that the plane can reach the corner of the rabbet without interference with the plane body. It was not, to the best of my knowledge, produced for the specific application you mentioned and it was produced from 1879 until 1973,

Have fun
