  Madox, Tracy, and Bown Connection 2 of 3  

The heal of today's Madox.

The non-standard length Madox 1/2" longer than the later standard Tracey.

Unusual cutout of the mouth of the Madox, original I believe, as it is
the same old patination of the rest of the body.

The dogleg cut.

The wedge mortice on most planes has a flat bed and a flat forward edge,
forming a V. In this plane the forward edge comes down and then goes
parallel to the bed. In this way it shapes like a dog's leg hence the name.
