Another form of early depth stop adjustment

I recently came across another early plough plane by John Rogers of London.
This example has a full length steel shoe with a brass adjuster at both ends of the stock. this has also forced the maker into placing the stem wedges on the inner face of the stems, as apposed to the usual position on there outer faces. It would appear that Mr Rogers was at the forefront of plane design in the middle of the 18th century
