    They are mismatched (right hooks and attachments) so possibly not original length

    [​IMG] this was the crown jewel tool of a carpenter. If he had one, he was clearly a pro. A) what is it? B) what is it used for?

    A) I forget.
    B) Cutting grooves, say for panels in drawers.
    C) Dado saw blades, routers, or mills can do the same job.

    Two out of three. This tool is a "plow block plane" commonly used by cabinet makers. It is used to put the groove in for the drawer bottom. Routers, or more commonly dido blades are now used.

    Chains might be longer because they lived on a hill-side?
