Millers Patent Planes & Stanley Plow & Combination Planes

Stanley tried a few different designs of metal bodied combination & plow planes before settling down and going with the #45 / 55 series of planes they are so well known for.  This series of planes would also include the skew cut #46 & 47 models as well as the light duty #50.  Stanley also offered the Millers Patent line of woodworking planes including the #41- #44 which were introduced in 1870, and phased out in the 1890's. They also made and offered the 141 and 143 plow planes for a longer period of time.   To learn all the history about the different models and types of # 45 & 55 planes one would ever need to know I recommend the great guide written and published by Dave Heckle past president of MWTCA.  The Millers Patent line of Stanley planes is discussed in length in Roger Smiths works on the subject or in John Walters out of print price guides.

Stanley No. 143 Plow PlaneStanley No. 143 Plow Plane  The Stanley No. 141 & 143 took the place of the earlier Millers patent plow planes #41 - 44. This example is in overall good condition. John Walters guide states the No. 141 was offered from 1887 - 1918 and the 143 was offered up to the beginning of WWII.

This plane has a sweetheart stamp on the skate, and Stanley marked fence dating it from after 1918 thus making it a 143 even though it has the holes in the skate of a 141. At least that is what I have been told by Bon Bosse, the recognized authority on the subject of Miller Patent planes and type studies for them. It would seem Stanley ran out of skates w/o holes and used 141 skates for a few years near the end.  Examples with this feature are known in the original box which would tend to confirm the theory and explain the later skate w/ 141 holes on a 143 plane.

It comes with 9 proper thin plow cutters plus the slitter and spur or nicker. It has one front nose piece. The aux. bullnose is not here, and even though it seems it should have a fillister bed given the holes in the skate, it is proper w/o one. Nice enough!!
