two chariots...

David Weaver
...one horse?

OK, I couldn't resist ...that doesn't even rise to the level of being a stupid joke.

I think the type you're talking about is a coachmaker's chariot - it's like a radius plane with handles sticking off of the ends to cut inside radii.

vs. the infill type which is more like a (flat) block plane but sometimes (or often, maybe, but not always) with the blade almost all the way at the front of the plane with a tiny sole in front of it (think bullnose plane front with bevel up and block plane back and then an iron that sticks further out the back (sometimes considerably so).
