Hi All,
I happened to be in Pennyfarthing Tools, Salisbury yesterday :lol: and picked up a wood scrub plane. Take a look.




it is stamped with "joh Weiss", don't know if anyone can fill me in on it's history?. The sole was a little warped so I dressed that out. The iron needed 10 minutes work and the wooden wedge was warped so I tweaked. that. It worked just fine-tore up a plank of oak like it was'nt there! Evil!
Cost-£7.50. Even the Missus was happy!
best regards,
Philly :D

Thanks for the info Teamsters!
Alf, Pennyfarthing was a nice lil shop-a good range of stuff and pretty good prices too. Worth a trip if you "just happen to be in the area" :lol:
So was £7.50 a good price? I think so.
(I've noticed the more planes I get the quicker I can evaluate and tweak whatever necessary to get it working nice. Experience, huh!)
cheers
Philly :D
P.s. have recently got an E-bay account-plough plane for £5.19 on the way. Also, Steve Knight Toolworks maple/purpleheart smoother on the way too. (Am I getting better with my gloats Alf?)

With all these extra planes you'll be looking for a bigger workshop.

Good gloat, wonder if i can find any good shops in the jungle?

On that logic, I should be very very quick indeed.

Huh. The more planes I get, the more there are of them waiting to be evaluated and tweaked... :oops:

Cheers, Alf

I would like to add some information on the patent stamp. It mentions two patents, issued in Austria ("K.K.OEST. PATENT No. 42079" -> "Kaiserlich königlich österreichisches Patent No. 42079") and Hungary ("KGL.UNG. PATENT No. 48559" -> "Königlich ungarisches Patent No. 48559"). I don't know about the Hungarian patent, but the Austrian patent was issued in 1910 and is about the dome shaped heel of the plane, to make it more comfortable to use and to prevent splitting when setting the blade with a hammer.
