This is my “Bailey” Jointer Plane. It dates somewhere in the early 1900’s (pre-1935 for sure). Belonged to my great grandfather Sterling Jones.
It’s not worth much other than the sentimental value. Love the simplicity of the design and the used patina of the steel and wood. He was a Freemason and I think these are mason symbols carved into the handle.
He was somewhat of an adventurous guy especially during that time period. He was a master welder by trade and this skill kept him home as an aviation welder during WWII. He had a personal pilot license and rode and Indian motorcycle.
