Hi Y'all,

I was wondering whether anyone can help to point me to a reference to the above plane maker.

I've been working in the shop trimming joints (on my wife's anniverary present no less :) ) using my shoulder plane made by Murray. While a fresh pot of coffee is brewing I started looking for information concerning him on the web and cannot find out anything.

So I was hoping one of you could point me to a reference or pass along any information you might have.

Many thanks! MikeW

Up the proverbial creek
From British Planemakers:

MURRAY, Alex Tweedie ------------------- MANCHESTER
(143)(94) Oldham St ---------------------------- 1900-1914
30 Great Charlotte St, Liverpool -------------- <1905-1913>

MURRAY, A.T & Sons
Liverpool -------------------------------------- <1935>
The < > round the dates means it's likely the firm was in business before and after the date/s shown, but there's no firm evidence.

Cheers, Alf

Thank you much, Alf.

I found a couple copies from some UK dealers today but the price got to me--specially as I have my eye on a couple oldies that cost less for both tools than the book does :tool: ...

So again, thank you--MikeW
