I picked up a couple of wooden hand planes over the wknd. I can figure
out what most of them were use for except this one.
It has a built in fence so the plane runs along one end of a piece of
wood. It cuts a 1/4" rabbit. The next 1/4" is left untouched followed
by a 1/2" dado. Both the dado and rabbit are about 1/2" deep.
So when I tested the plane out it cut a 1/4" rabbet and a 1/2 dado
spaced 1/4" apart.
Any idea what the plane was used for?

You'd use it on stock less than 1" thick. You'd let one edge of one blade
hang over the stock. That way, exact stock thickness doesn't matter to the
tongue-cutting process. It would matter on the floor later, of course.
