MOLDING PLANE. Unmarked and undoubtedly user made. Cutter is held by a hand-wrought wingnut and curves out from the body. These were used to chamfer the edges of a drawer bottom so that it will fit into the slot in the sides of the drawer on 18th century chests. Looks like applewood, well made and like new.

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 tote has a large chip, and there is some overall wear to the body, but otherwise a very clean example of a very rare plane, rated R1 (fewer than five examples expected) by Blanchard & Larson. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good+ 400-800 York2024-270 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/12114/york2024-270 York2024-270. JOINTER. Palmer's Patent. Patented in 1857 by J.F. Palmer of Auburn, New York. PTAMPIA I describes this as "perhaps the most significant development in longitudinal cutter adjustment" as it was the first efficient cutter adjustment to be used by major plane manufacturers - in addition to S.W. and J.F. Palmer, the same mechanism was also used by Truman M'Master and Metallic Plane Co. This one is actually marked b A & E Baldwin, which has not previously been recorded as using the patent. The patent also describes a spring-loaded mechanism to withdraw the cutter on the back stroke, but apparently that feature was too complicated and it was never manufactured. 22" sole with closed tote, wide flat strike button, and 2-1/2" cutter, marked "Palmer's Patent" with the patent date on the cap iron and Baldwin's B mark on the toe. There are a couple of shiny rectangles on the cutter where it looks like labels protected the metal from rusting. The wood is very clean. Rated R2 for rarity (fewer than 25 examples) in Larson & Blanchard. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza.

One of the earliest cutter adjustments, patented in 1844 by Levi Sanford of New York. There's an example on page 17 of PTAMPIA I, marked as having been manufactured by A. & E. Baldwin. This one is unmarked, but Roger speculates that the mechanism may have been fitted into conventional planes. Patent date and name clearly marked on the mechanism holding the adjusting screw under the cutter. 22" long with open tote. Wood very clean, and a rare example of an important early patent. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good+ 300-600 York2024-268 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/12112/york2024-268 York2024-268. BEVEL FENCE. Taylor Patent. Patented in 1876 by one Harrison Taylor of Minerva, Ohio. Consists of a wooden fence on a cast iron bracket that needs to be screwed to the side of a wood bodied plane, with the angle set by a locking wingnut. This one is screwed to an unmarked 22" jointer with a big chip out of the tote and 2-1/2" cutter. Only the second one we've seen, but the patent model is shown in Figure 104 of PTAMPIA II.

Heald Patent. Daniel Heald was the son and partner of Milford, NH, planemaker Addison Heald. In 1878 he patented a combination clamp and cutter adjustment that was used on a variety of Heald & Son wooden planes (PTAMPIA I, pp. 134-35), and a few by other makers. This one is on a 22" razee body jointer by Wells & Reed, a Northampton partnership with a five star mark. The top of the tote is sheared off but the rest of the wood is decent, the patent mechanism is unmarked but unmistakable. 2-1/4" Dwight & Foster cutter. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza.
