I posted a while back about a few hand planes i received. Apart from the Norris, i also received a Marples M4 smoother. This has the makers mark on the iron and still has the original badge of the handle. Not in 100% good nic but will clean up to be.

Anyone got any info on this plane. Are they collectable?

Any help welcome

Peter, thanks for the details and welcome to the forum.

Thats the looks exactly the same. I'll give it a good clean and sharpen then.

Everything's collectable.

They're much rarer than Record or Stanley, but only carry a small price premium; maybe 15% more than a similar Record.

Most Marples 'M' planes are old, so they tend to be of the earlier, sturdier design.

I would personally recommend them highly, but as a tool, not an investment.
