Birdsill Holly received his patent in 1852 for the first commercially successful metallic plane. This 18" jointer with a smooth sole (the dimpled soles would come later) is identical to that shown on page 22 of PTAMPIA I, except that it has a single unmarked cutter. Top of the rosewood tote has been rounded over, the bed has been repainted, and the rosewood knob is probably a well done replacement, but overall a beautifully preserved part of American planemaking history.

Most examples of the very rare Hardy patent sold by Boston Metallic Plane Co., with its large holes in the sole that reduced friction but increased breakage, are jack planes or longer. This is a 9" smoothing plane, only the second we've seen. It has six tapered holes tapped into the sole which look original, as if to attach a wooden sole, which would make no sense but that's what it looks like. Tip of the tote skillfully repaired, lever cap has some grooves scored into it, otherwise very clean. Sandusky cutter. From the collection of Cecil Holmes.

Super rare example of Holly's early "shoebuckle" lever cap design that influenced the Stanley 110. See PTAMPIA I, page 39.
