This is a coffin-shaped toothing plane.
|As found - A. C. Bartlett's Ohio Plane Toothing Plane|
|View of the other side|
The plane is 7 1/4" long, about 3" at it's widest and 2 9/16" tall (without iron and wedge). It's got a very high bed angle, about 80° (plus or minus a couple degrees). The name on the plane is A. C. Bartlett's Ohio Plane and there appears to be the number "36" stamped on the front.
|Back end, complete with hanging hook of prior owner|

|Closer view of the engraving - the apostrophe is apparently in the wrong place!|
|Closer view of the toothed end|
|The bevel is approximately 25°|
|The iron's taper profile after a little clean-up|
|Front side of wedge|

|Note how the toothed iron has left its mark on the back of the wedge|
According to the Early American Industries Association (EAIA) Directory of American Toolmakers,
"Planes made by the Sandusky Tool Co. were marked as indicated for sale by Hibbard, Spencer & Bartlett Co., a hardware firm which Bartlett was president of 1904 -17. Bartlett was a salesman for Hibbard, Spencer & Co. before becoming an unnamed partner in 1872; his name was added in 1882." For anyone interested, a history of Hibbard, Spence & Bartlett can be found here, thanks to "The Hardware Companies Kollectors Klub".
The next entry will cover the steps I used to clean and get the plane to a working condition. I'll also show some (hopefully minor) issues with it. Never having used a toothing plane before I don't know what to expect.
