Hi ,

I have a cap iron on a metal plane with a stamp name
Ashton on it. It has a wooden wedge which holds the iron
in place. Was Ashton a plane maker before he became an
edge tool maker ? Any info would be helpful. Will post a
picture later.

Hi,
I was trying to find out any info on a Plane Maker
by the name of Samuel Ashton as he is mentioned as
being a Plane Maker in 1851-1861. He then became an
edge tool maker. He is mentioned in Goodman British
Plane Makers Book by Jane Rees, but there is no more
info on him.
