Couple of wooden planes, chamfer and a round.









The chamfer has a Ward iron - no other maker markings
The round is Marples

Paid £1 each (I've cleaned them up).

You're a lucky man - and to add to your luck I will publicly offer to double your money and take them off your hands for £2 each! Now what do you say to that?! :lol:

I think the petite one with the rounded bottom may be a Mast and Spar Plane, used by shipwrights for finishing - erm - masts and spars (and oars), once they'd been roughed out by axe and adze.

Looks like a rather splendid chisel blade to me.

... could be I suppose. I've just given it a test run and it works very well :)

I see your chamferplane has an iron sole on the corebox. That's good :) . When you start a chamfer the plane rides on the sharp edge of the wood which means a lot of wear in the long run. My Moseley chamfer plane has a similar feature. What bedding angle does your have? Mine is about 52 degrees, very helpfull to avoid tearout.

Near as I can measure, 57 degrees.

Mine's 63 degrees give or take a gnat's wangler.....



There is no metal plate on this box insert and after many many decades...very little wear.

It cuts fine....



Nice little planes.

I have to admit...that does look very much like the iron is made from a chisel...rather canny that!

Which might suggest that it's user made - hence no makers mark?

Mind you, if I'd made it. it'd have my name stamped all over it! :wink:

Indeed, plus mine is not the usual beech it looks more like mahogany. The quality and detail seem far beyond the normal user made item which was normally made well enough to do the job but not much attention paid to prettiness :)

The frustration is that we'll never know.
