NOTES: This style of shoulder plane is known as a "York Pattern" or "Yorkshire Pattern". The adjusters used in these planes were of the pin and hole type, as can be seen in the images below.

Very early examples (of which there are few) had the wedge tension adjustment through the back half of the wedge, rather than through the plane itself.
