    Hi! I need help identifying a hand plane. It’s an early one. Only markings are the No.7 and on the wooden knob reads: A.W.S. No patent date or anything else. Any ideas??

    Thanks!

    Hi CinderRelics,

    ,Photos would help a lot. There were several manufacturers that produced unbranded tools for hardware stores and similar retailers. They were sold cheaper than branded tools. You might want to take a close look at the blade since some it was cheaper to mark them than to brand the castings.

    Have fun.
