Hmmm,

Something I didn't know about! I don't really care about not being famous for making planes but what's with the 'son' business.

And since when did any member of my family live north of the Thames?

News to me :D

It's an Engineer's Scraper, Blister. Used for scraping bearing surfaces to fit a shaft. The usual drill is to cover the shaft with a very thin smear of marking blue, assemble to the bearing (which is usually split), revolve back and to a couple of times, then dissemble and scrape off the blued patches on the bearing. Repeat (many times) until you have the specified contact - say 75% blued contact. (This will only work if the shaft is true and well finished - you'll never fit a bearing to a worn shaft, however hard you try.)

I think that example is a fairly recent one by Eclipse. I think they're still available new from the likes of J&L Industial and Cromwell Tools. To work well, they need to be sharpened (!) on a fine Arkansas or similar oilstone.

Edit to add - that's a half-round scraper. There are also flat and three-square scrapers - the flat for scraping together flat surfaces, and three-square for smaller diameter bearings. The latter are also useful for deburring holes.

Top quality stuff there - the Bahco adjustables are everlasting. I think the pair of T&G planes might be Dutch - the central half-round groove and wedge shape are distinctive. Any maker's mark on them? Maybe a crown? (And btw the groover has the blade back to front, but you knew that!)
