The 1950s resonated with some truly interesting tool designs. Millers Falls spent a lot of effort designing aesthetically pleasing tools. Wood was sometimes replaced with plastic, designs were streamlined, aluminum made an appearance. One of the more interesting tools was Millers Falls No. 1220 Plane-’R’-File, a Jekyll and Hyde type tool which could be used as either a plane or a file – their answer to Stanley’s surform. Nice concept, beautiful design, but the tool just didn’t cut it – literally. Check out the complete review on my website.
