In the 4th edition of Goodman’s British Plane Makers there are some drawings of planes recovered from the wreck of the Mary Rose, the warship that sank in the Solent in 1545 in the reign of King Henry VIII. This is my reproduction of one of them, No. MR 82 A980, which is described as a jack plane although its length is 540 mm. Like the original, it is made of ash. I fitted a Stanley iron temporarily but I have now replaced that with a purpose-made one of O1 steel.
