Union Factory. Solid boxwood unhandled plow, with Chapin's Union Factory A mark. There are turned washers under the outer nuts that could be ivory but are more likely bone. We've never seen those on a Union Factory plane and thought they were a user addition, but the nuts themselves have turned shanks that fit into the washers which makes it seem that they are original. In addition, there are two small ivory points - too small to be called tips - on the ends of the arms. There's large chip from the front of the skate and a smaller one from the top of the left cheek and some gouges on the right cheek, all old and smoothed over, but the wood is otherwise very clean. A very intriguing plow plane with a story to tell. Good+ 200-400 b61-610 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9557/b61-610 b61-610 SCREW ARM PLOW PLANE. Willis, Thrall & Son. Rosewood body and fence, boxwood arms, nuts, wedge and boxing strip. Willis, Thrall was a Hartford tool store whose mark is usually stamped in ink but this one has a traditional toe stamp. It has an Ohio Tool cutter and was probably made by OTC. Wedge has some wear and could use a careful cleaning but overall a very attractive plow with a four star mark.

Good clean example of England's only three-arm plow, patented and manufactured by D. Kimberly & Sons. Unhandled version, wood and metal both very good, including most of the original red paint on the bridle, and has the often-missing wingnut. The Kimberly mark on the toe is faint and partly obscured by a user mark, but the patent number is clear.

There are some flaws in the wood and a chip from the end of the wedge, but the threads are perfect. Bracelin was primarily an edge tool maker in Dayton, OH, and planes by him are uncommon; this is the first plow we've seen. B mark.

Most plow planes with ivory "sandwich" nuts were made by the Greenfield Tool Co.; this is a rare exception. Unlike the Greenfield plows, this plane has only one band of ivory in the external nuts, but the inboard flat nuts are laminated rosewood and ivory which has never been seen in a Greenfield, and also has two acorn shaped ivory tips. Rosewood body, fence and wedge; boxwood arms; silver mounted, Middletown cutter. In near flawless condition, noting a few minor chips and dings on the wedge. In near flawless condition.

Solid boxwood version of the No. 105. Several chips on the threads and the ivory tips, unmarked cutter slightly spalled. The toe has the "Columbus" line from the B mark as well as the 105, but no trace of the "Ohio Tool Co." line. Could be worn off but looks like it was deliberately omitted, maybe to allow it to be marked by the retailer.

I.E. Smith & Co. Beech unhandled plow with hand-carved locking screws and tombstone depth stop. There are some tiny chips at the front of the fence and some wear to the wedge; otherwise looks like it was made yesterday. Light pitting on unmarked cutter.

Dark rosewood body, fence and wedge and boxwood arms with turned finials on the ends, boxwood nuts and shoulders. There's some grime on it, but no damage, and it would clean up to a spectacular plane. The threads are perfect, no cracks in the nuts. A mark.

The wood looks like applewood throughout but very fine and smooth, almost like boxwood. There's a very small chip from the front of the fence, but it's otherwise immaculate. Mason was a hardware dealer in Lawrence, MA, and the plane was probably made by one of the New York prison factories.
