English & Scottish Infill Planes
Excellent . . . . .$595.00
Spiers AYR Rosewood Infill Closed Handle Panel Plane This 14" Spiers Rosewood Infill Panel plane is marked as to maker with a bold stamp on the gunmetal lever cap. The cutter is marked but hard to make out. There is enough of a graphic on the cutter that someone better versed will recognize the maker. The throat is nice. The chamfered or bevel edge of the steel sides which are dovetailed to the bottom is a great feature. The top of the rear tote has been repaired There are minor spots of pitting but this plane still looks great and could easily be brought to a fine condition with a bit of careful lapping and cleaning.

2 Infill Mitre / Rebate Planes Here are a super nice pair of small English / Scottish Rebate / Mitre planes. The one on the right is marked on the nose, and you can make out Glasgow, but not much more. I believe it is a Mathieson but that might not be right.. Note the chamfered edges, and the finish details that went into this planes makeup. The throats on both are perfect and very close. Hard to find!!
Left . . . . . Good + . . . . . . . $150.00
Right . . . . . Fine . . . . . . . $225.00
Brass Infill Mitre / Rebate Plane by Lie Nielsen I have been told, and have seen reference to this being a plane kit that Lie Nielsen put out back in the 80's. That would be about right considering all of the Lie Nielsen planes I have for sale came from one collector who was most active in the 80's and early 90's.
The tolerances, fine finish and craftsmanship leave no doubt as to the makers skill in finishing this off. It is not signed or marked anywhere. The wedge fit is as tight as possible and yet slides in and out as though machined. The opening at the throat is as fine and straight as one could ask for. As fine a piece of plane making as I have ever seen.
Fine . . . . . . . $145.00
