MODERN MAKER. Set of HNT Gordon Ringed Gidgee Planes. Made by Australia's master planemakers. 22 planes total, a complete set of 18 hollows and rounds, plus a pair of side rounds and a pair of snipe bills with brass boxing. Gidgee is a reddish-brown hardwood endemic to Australia that Gordon uses for its highest quality planes; "ringed" gidgee means it has a curly figure to the grain, like curly maple. The entire set is contained in a dovetailed cherry case made by the owner, 12" by 10" and 13" high, with brass fittings, including a plaque engraved "Wm. Webber" and working lock (keys included). The planes themselves are in the top with a hinged lid, and there is also a drawer that holds the paperwork and wood samples with various profiles. All the planes are in mint, unused condition. An absolutely stunning collection. According to the paperwork, Bill paid $4,000 US for it in 2019; it would cost you more today. From the collection of Bill Webber.

Very rare example of the cutter adjustment mechanism patented 5/10/70 by Zephaniah Phillips of Dixon, IL. PTAMPIA I, Figure 151. 22" long. The part of the depth adjustment attached to the front of the throat, with "Pat'd 1870" cast into throat piece, is there, but unfortunately the second part of the patent, the cutter riveted to a depth adjustment, is missing; instead there's just a common cutter. The tote has been broken and reglued in two places, and there's a repair plate in front of the mouth. Still a very rare plane, rated R1, fewer than five examples expected, by Blanchard & Larson. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good- 100-200 B63-441 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/11521/b63-441 B63-441. ROSEWOOD FORE PLANE.

Undoubtedly made by a nineteenth century shipyard worker with access to exotic foreign woods in the days when rosewood was used to make packing crates. From the collection of Pat Gefre.
