SOLD This Burnham, Fox & Co. plow plane was made sometime in 1842-1844 in Amherst, Mass. It is in good shape except for the dogmeat wedge. The wedge fits nicely in its mortise, but the top is chewed up. Works fine. Looks sad.
The screw arms are in good shape with nice threads. The skate is straight. The depth stop works fine.
This also includes a set of eight irons. Six irons are from William Ash & Co. One is a Ward. The last is unmarked. All have tons of life left in them. Only a few are set up for use.
This is a fine user plane as-is. And the maker is fairly rare. Add a replacement wedge and you’ll be set for life.
Price: $65 plus $9 domestic shipping. SOLD
About Tool Sales on My Blog
Please read this if you are interested in buying a tool. Why am I selling these tools? Read this entry before you freak out. There is no “master list” of tools that I can send you. I am working through several piles of tools and will list them when I can.
Want to see only the tools that haven’t sold? Easy. I’ve created a category for that on this blog. Click here and bookmark that page. When you visit that link, you’ll see only the tools that haven’t been sold.
While you can ask me all the questions you like about the tool, the first person to send me an e-mail that says: “I’ll take it,” gets the tool. Simple. To buy a tool, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment: I can accept PayPal or a personal check. As soon as the funds arrive, I’ll ship the tool using USPS. If you want insurance, let me know. I’m afraid I can only ship tools in the United States. Shipping internationally is very time-consuming and paperwork-heavy. My apologies in advance on this point.
If you don’t like the tool when you get it, I’ll be happy to refund your money if you return the tool. But postage is on you.
