Wooden Plow Planes & Wood Molding Planes



C E Chelor - Living in Wrentham Hollow Molding Plane"C E Chelor - Living in Wrentham" Hollow Molding Plane   This 18th century molding plane was made by Cesar Chelor the former slave of Francis Nicholson who was America's first documented wooden plane maker.   C. E. Chelor began his career as Nicholson's apprentice, but upon Nicholson's death Cesar Chelor was willed his freedom, tools, and more.  There is a nice history of the parties involved and how things evolved at https://www.antiquetools.com/chelor/index.html

The plane is in excellent condition and has a beautiful form and patina.   It is made of yellow birch it has its original wedge and nice heavy chamfers.  The name stamp and Living in Wrentham location is clear and bold. There are a couple of minor chips that are insignificant.   Real Americana and a piece of African and American history at its best.

Rosewood and Boxwood Handled Plow PlaneRosewood and Boxwood Handled Plow Plane Another wonderful example of a rare American plow plane. This unmarked Rosewood plow plane is in exceptional overall condition.  The plane body is damage or crack free. The contrasting colors of the Boxwood wedge, rods, and nuts in contrast with the Rosewood body are wonderful.  The fence is made of a third color dense hardwood that may be just a lighter rosewood.  It is very nice.  There is one age check in one of the nuts and the end of one rod is a bit chewed up.  The threads are very nice.  The skate and other metal parts are all nice and rust or pit free.  A very nice plane that deserves to be proudly displayed!!

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!!
