Unsigned and they look like they were made by the same craftsman. One is red mahogany, with a 1" skew cutter and integral fence. The other is weird, it looks like the wedge is upside down but we're convinced it was made that way. It is laminated with red beech and a side layer of mahogany that also forms a wear strip along the edge of the sole, 5/8" skew cutter with open throat.

No. 6 size, always sold in handed pairs for use in tight spaces where a full round would be hard to use. See Whelan, figure 10:16. Uncommon in the US, but Vance was an early Baltimore maker who learned his craft in England. E mark. At least three sets of user names, but still look like new.

Very darkly oxidized wood, narrow flat chamfers, relieved wedge, square arms and tombstone depth stop all locked with hand-carved thumbscrews. A couple of typical small chips from the arm holes, and there are threaded holes drilled into the toe and heel that were obviously intentional although the purpose is unclear. Otherwise very clean. Fuller & Field was a partnership between the adopted son of Jo. Fuller and his brother that was in business for a few years beginning in 1799.

V-shaped sole with sliding arm plow type fence, locked with unusual hand cast locking screws. The wood looks like rosewood. It has a user name on the toe and looks user made; some of the surfaces are rough sawn and weren't sanded or scraped smooth. According to Whelan (page 208) these rare planes were used in shipyards to score the edge of planks to provide sharp edges to painted lines in the hull.

Unlike most examples, that have a set of soles with different radii that attach to a plane body, this set consists of five separate wood plane bodies and a single tote that slides into a groove on the body being used. 8" long, each with its original matching cutter and marked with the size on the toe. A well made and unusual set. Fine 120-240 b61-612 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9559/b61-612 b61-612 ADJUSTABLE TONGUE CUTTER. J. P. Lyne & Son. 14-1/2" long, screw-arm adjustable fence with boxwood nuts. The cutter is split down the middle with the two halves connected by an adjustable plate that allows for cutting tongues of different widths. Lyne was a hardware dealer in Carlisle, PA (B mark, three stars), but this split cutter was known to be used by Wm. Steele of Wheeling, who may be the manufacturer. There's a big chip from the end of the tote, otherwise nice and clean. Boxing strips on both sides of the groove. An uncommon plane.

Patented in 1888 by Phillipe Nicol of Roxton Pond, Quebec, one of the centers of Canadian planemaking. Never patented or widely sold in the US, but they still show up here. The cutter is held by a cast iron frame screwed to the wooden base, kind of a crude mechanism for 1888 which probably explains their rarity. 26" sole, stamped on the toe, 2-1/2" Spear & Jackson cutter. Old chip from the edge of the tote, strike button worn flat. The actual plane shown in Figure 145 of PTAMPIA I. A very rare plane. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza.

The version of Oliver Hayworth's 1893 patent manufactured by the Birmingham (later Derby) Plane Co., with its distinctive faucet-handle depth adjustment. See PTAMPIA I, Figure 240. There's a tight check in the toe, chips in the lacquer on the tote, and some loss of japanning on the lever cap, but otherwise very clean. A very rare patented plane. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good+ 200-400 b61-439 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9386/b61-439 b61-439 LAMINATED BODY ROUTER PLANE.

Very unusual example of Worrall's pre-multiform patent, with a metal plate screwed to the top of the plane with "Patented June 23, 1857" cast in front of the throat. The bolt holding the cutter in place runs through the metal plate and base of the tote. See PTAMPIA I, Figure 27a. 20" wooden sole, with no stamp on the toe. 2-3/4" cutter marked by Multiform. Tip of the tote is broken off and split in sole, otherwise a good example of a rare patented plane. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good 300-600
