B59-352 BENCH PLANE. Hardt Patent. Louis Hardt of Yuba City, CA, patented this thing in 1893. It featured a nose piece that slides on an inclined plane to adjust the depth of cut. The patent shows a wooden plane, but the very few known examples are all cast iron. This is the 11-1/2" smoothing plane size, identical to the one shown in Figure 263 of PTAMPIA I. Like all known examples, has a marked Sargent cutter (although the mark is faint and partly obscured by surface rust) and a Sargent frog. It also has "Hardt" and the patent date cast into the toe and "Hardt" cast into the underside of the lever cap. Japanning about 40%, wood fine, cutter and chipbreaker have surface rust. A very nice example of one of the holy grails of patented plane collectors. Good+ 2000-4000
