Antique & Collectible Wooden Planes
Wooden Plow Planes & Wood Molding Planes



Handled Ebony and Boxwood Plow Plane w/ CuttersEbony and Boxwood Handled Plow Plane A wonderful example of a rare American plow plane.  It is such a nice piece, and so well done that is a wonder it is unmarked as to maker, but many of them are.  This unusual plow plane is in exceptional condition and was another of the collectors favorites that he kept it in a special place.

The overall condition is super nice and the ebony plane body is damage or crack free.  The contrasting colors of the Boxwood rods and nuts are wonderful.  There is some minor chipping close in on the threads as can be seen in the pics.  The rest are very nice.  The skate and other metal parts are all nice and rust or pit free.  The cutters are not part of the price.  Very Nice!!

1854 Worrall Patent Multiform Molding Plane1854 Worrall Patent Multiform Molding Plane  Thomas Worrall emigrated from England to the USA in 1853.  He was first a Pastor in NJ.  He moved to Mass and entered the tool making business in about 1855.  Roger Smiths book on Patented American Planes gives a long and detailed history of his endeavors and discusses the several different patents that were granted to him.  Smith states that the company ceased operations in 1858 meaning that the company was in business for just a few short years. 

Thomas Worrall was granted his first patent on August 29 1854 and that is the patent info found on most of his planes, even if they used his later patented improvements.  Worrall also sold the rights to use his ideas to other plane making companies.  That is what we have here with the large molder body being marked Copeland in addition to Worrall's patent info. The maple handle is removable and fits all three plane bodies shown nicely. The two beads are marked 1/2 & 3/4 on the tail with no other info on them. The 3/4 bead is missing a piece of boxing. The two beads are basically being included for free with the lions share of value being assigned to the handle and extra wide and nice Copeland body.  The tail of it is marked 1 1/4 & 2 1/2.  Wide and complex profile molders are not commonly found.  Different, early and nice!!

Worrall Patent Moving Fillister Multiform Molding Plane w/ Removable HandleWorrall Patent Moving Fillister Multiform Molding Plane w/ Removable Handle   This is a later example of a Worrall Patent Multiform Molding Planes that can be found. It has a beautiful removable Tiger Maple handle on it.  The collectors tag indicates this was as it was presented when bought years ago at auction.

Take note of how this planes body originally was manufactured with two slots in the top of the plane to receive a different style handle.  The foreword slot has been factory filled so that this style handle with a single attachment point could be used.  At one point Worrall produced a style handle with a long metal base that was attached at two points, but he dropped that idea in favor of this simpler design that was easier and cheaper to produce.   Roger Smith discusses this situation in his 1st book, and illustrates a similar fillister plane with the other style handle that used both slots.   

The condition is very nice overall, but the wedge while almost right does not seem to fit just right and needs to be modified a bit to fit better.  Different, early and nice!!

10 Worrall Patent Multiform Molding Planes w/ Removable Handle10 Worrall Patent Multiform Molding Planes w/ 1857 Patent Removable Handle   Offered here is a  grouping of 10 WorrallWorrall Patent Multiform Molding Planes w/ 1857 Patent Removable Handle Patent Multiform Molding Planes. The wide molder on the right has an example of what I believe is one of Worrall's later patents, # 18,312 granted in 1857 which covers the design of the handle shown on the right with an adjustable cast iron base.    

The pics give an individual shot of each of the bodies. The first on the left w/ the vertical wedge is missing its cutter.  The large wide profile body on the right with the mounted handle is missing its wedge.  Take note of pics 27 & 28 as this body is a bit different in the way it is cut, and how it uses a second cutter as a sort of chip breaker.  Kind of different.  The overall condition is very nice.  The removable handle w/ adjustable cast iron base is especially nice.  Different, early and nice!!

The planes are a set of graduated beads.  One is missing its cutter and wedge.  The rest are pretty nice.  The removable handle is Rosewood and stamped with Worrall's original patent date from 1854.  Of all the examples shown in both of Smiths books, there are no examples of handles made of Rosewood with the attached brass piece that this one has. A much improved design for the tightening screw from some of his other work.   Different, early and nice!!
