A differnt Type of Long Jointer

Never seen one of these before. No makers mark other then "P 1928". Maybe a prototype. Apparently did not turn out to be popular.

That looks like a pretty beefy piece of steel riding on the teeth. Does that bend into an arc?

No, not mine. A local tool collector picked it up at a flea market for $15.00.

Yes, the steel plate is flexed and adjusted with the wing nut. I'm thinking that may have been a problem with the design because the flexed plate will not be a true arc of a circle. The arc will be more near the center and less toward the ends.

I picked up a home made long jointer a few years ago. Shoes look like repurposed hacksaw blades. Simonds 342 for comparison.

Interesting, both the one that PATCsawyer has and the one I photographed appear to be too sophisticated for a homemade tool. Casting the aluminum frame and parts would be beyond most folks capability. Also the lack of a makers mark or brand makes me think that they were a prototype that really never panned out.
