Strange plane
#3
  
At least to me.  Sorry I can't do pics until I get home but.....I picked up a rather crudely made wooden jointer except, it has a groove, not quite centered, 3/4" wide and 1/4" deep running the length of the sole.  Probably the cleanest bit of work on the plane, everything else is crude, functional but crude.  Any ideas on what the maker was trying to achieve?

Common decency is as rare as common sense. I figure there was only a finite amount of both made and its getting shared out among too many folks.

Tongue & groove planes used to be a hair off-set.  That way, the thicker part was above the tongue your plane would make.  Comes in handy  when doing wood floors.
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that
