Marples & sons #10 Carriage maker’s rabbet plane.
A Stanley type plane from UK
Just had to share this plane with the plane lovers here.
It’s a #10 from the English Marples, the only one I have ever seen.
If anyone has any info I will be happy to know.
Found it on E-bay at a really fair price.
It arrived in a big box.
Full of foam chips…
And finally came out to be seen and touched by a happy me.
Notice the wonderful warm red color.
Handle and tote are well made and in mint condition.
Lever cap with the brand.
Body with the brand and model.
Produced in Sheffield.
Original plane iron.
Quite rough machining on the sides of this plane.
A clean mouth.
The sole is well made, straight and smooth.
It will move in to this cabinet where it will replace my Stanley 10.
A late Stanley model that doesn’t hold the same charm I think.
