Wedge arm plow plane with a curved fence that's adjustable with a flexible plate adjusted by bolts at each end, similar to the sole of a Stanley No. 13. There are only two examples of this plane known, the other of which is in the legendary David Russell collection. This one is on page 79 of Sandor Nagyszalanczy's Tools Rare and Ingenious. 6-1/2" sole, riveted fence, brass diamonds on top of arms, boxwood wedges that look original. Iron is ground to leave edges to act as nickers (Whelan, Figure 13:76). Wedge has wear. Sym's mark has been partially overstamped by an inconsiderate user but still clearly legible. From the collection of Steve Dice. Fine 6000-10000 B62-637 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10822/b62-637 B62-637. SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. J. Hannan. Unhandled, beech body, fence and wedge, the nuts and arms could be boxwood but darkly stained. There are a few small chips from the threads and checks in the body around the throat. Very large and elaborately shaped outer nuts, the inner nuts are simple discs but also unusually large. Hannan worked in both New York and Middletown in the 1840s and 50s; this is his C mark which rates four stars and has been found on another boxwood plow.

Unhandled, beech body and fence with boxwood nuts. Brass depth stop with a distinctive nub on the adjusting screw. The body has some staining but no damage, the threads are good with a couple of small chips. William Brooks was an early Philadelphia planemaker who worked from 1791 to 1807, screw arm plows from that era are uncommon and this is the only one by Brooks we've seen. A1 mark. From the collection of Carl Bopp. Good+ 100-200 B62-635 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10820/b62-635 B62-635. SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. Ohio Tool Co.

Unlike the Yanks, the Brits didn't make that many screw arm plows, but when they did, they did it right. The Cowell & Chapman patent has a combination brass and red beech body with a pivoting brass lever cap and depth stop mechanism. Rosewood nuts, elaborately turned finials on the arms. Most of them are unmarked but this one is stamped "Cowell & Chapman. Newcastle-on-Tyne" on the right cheek - it's faint, but legible with magnification. Reglued split in rear nut and a few dings. There's a T. Hildick iron in the plane, and it also comes with a complete numbered set of Colquhoun & Chapman irons. From the collection of Steve Dice.

No. 110. Solid rosewood version of the No. 110 with boxwood wheel, not marked by OTC. The rosewood on the body is divided between heartwood and sapwood, which gives it a very striking appearance. The threads are immaculate, a couple of microscopic chips from the tote. Shallow groove where the Ohio Tool Co. mark has been ground out but marked "110." Cleaned and French polish applied by Bob Baker. Includes an original set of eight OTC cutters. One of the most beautiful center wheels we've ever seen. From the collection of Steve Dice.

Unhandled, boxwood throughout, flat ivory tips have cracks but are intact. Wedge has damage and a couple of small chips to the threads. One A. Althaus went nuts on it with his owner's stamp. Ohio Tool Co. cutter. Child, Pratt was a St. Louis hardware company, it was probably made by one of the New York firms that used prison labor. Good+ 200-400 B62-405 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10590/b62-405 B62-405. IVORY TIPPED PLOW PLANE. Sandusky No. 137. Solid ebony throughout. Ivory tips have yellowing and a few cracks, but fully intact. The threads have some wear, mostly between the body and fence. Needs a cutter, but it's not like they're hard to find. C banner mark. One of the most sought after of the Sandusky plows. Good+ 1500-2500 B62-404 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10589/b62-404 B62-404. SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. Unhandled, solid boxwood throughout. It isn't marked, but looks like the product of one of the New York makers that used contract prison labor. Boxwood is nice and clean throughout, there's a couple of tight checks and very small chips to the threads, but overall a very attractive boxwood plow. Fine 100-200 B62-403 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10588/b62-403 B62-403. SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. G.W. Denison & Co.

Super clean example of Carpenter's revolutionary 1838 patent. The rosewood outer nuts, almost always found badly chipped, are near perfect, and the boxwood arms, inner nuts and fence facing have only a few minor dings. Original rosewood wedge with Wm. Butcher cutter. D4 mark with the "patent" and "improved arms" lines reversed. From the collection of Steve Dice.

Extraordinarily complex design for the fence adjustment, patented in 1881 by Samuel Piper of Newton, Mass. Instead of sliding, the fence is adjusted by two hinged brass arms and locked in place by a wing that is locked by a large thumbscrew at the top. Only two examples are know, both of which are shown on page 79 of PTAMPIA I; this is the one with a maple body and rosewood wedge in Figure 86. Also pictured on page 146 of Sandor Nagyszalanczy's Tools Rare and Ingenious. From the collection of Steve Dice.

Unsigned, but elaborately turned nuts and shoulders resemble the work of J. Hannan of Watertown. Tillotson No. 4 cutter. Big reglued crack in one arm and fence below it, and some wear in bottom of right cheek above the skate, otherwise super clean and very attractive. Good 50-100 B62-398 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10583/b62-398 B62-398. IVORY TIPPED PLOW PLANE. Hall, Case & Co. Boxwood throughout, with flat ivory tips, all intact. There a large chip from the front of the fence and a few minor chips from the threads. The horn on the tote seems short, but there's no sign of alteration so maybe it was made that way. Good+ 150-300 B62-397 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10582/b62-397 B62-397. SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. G.W. Denison & Co. Rosewood body, fence and wedge, boxwood arms and nuts. Instead of being boxed in the traditional manner, there's a thin piece of wood screwed to the face of the fence that looks original. The brass-headed screw in the top of the tote isn't a repair, and may have been decorative. We could only find one microscopic chip in the threads, and the wood overall is near mint. The rosewood has a very attractive grain, and overall this is a stunning plane, barely used. B mark. Fine 200-400 B62-396 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10581/b62-396 B62-396. LOT OF TWO SLIDE ARM FILLETSTERS. Philadelphia Makers. One by Wm.

From the collection of Carl Bopp. Good+ 180-300 B62-395 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10580/b62-395 B62-395. SLIDE ARM PLOW PLANE. Unhandled, boxwood throughout. The locking thumbscrews don't bear directly on the arms, but instead tighten brass yokes that pull up against the bottom of the arms to lock them. Brass tips on the arms, a brass wear plate on the fence, and a metal plate in the side indicating that it was probably intended as a presentation piece. The plane shown on page 292 of Rosebrook & Fisher. Fine 200-400 B62-394 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/10579/b62-394 B62-394.
