Tongue and groove cutters in opposite directions in same body, sized for 1/2" boards. John Parkhurst worked in New Jersey in the early 1800s; this is his A mark which rates five stars in AWP. It's also marked by A. Boyd, which is an unrated mark from Pennsylvania in the same era; not sure what the relationship was between Parkhurst and Boyd. Like new. From the collection of Hank Allen. Fine 150-250 B59-622 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8032/b59-622 B59-622 PRINTER'S PLANE. John Veit. Applewood with 9" by 2-1/4" sole covered with an iron plate. Open applewood tote. The 1-3/4" D.R. Barton iron is bedded at an almost vertical angle. These planes, which are very rare, apparently were used in print shops to trim printing blocks. There are no visible screws holding the iron plate to the sole, and since this plane is from Carl Bopp's collection, no one who knew Carl will be surprised to learn that he had X-rays taken of the plane to show how the sole was attached, which are included in the lot. The plane was described by Carl in an article from the March 2004 issue of the Chronicle, a copy of which will also be included. Some staining, mostly along the sole, and a chip from the wedge, otherwise very clean.

Nicely made brass body with rosewood bun and tote, 13" long, with five bottoms, two with flutes and three convex cutters matching four of the bottoms.
