Topic tags/keywords: plane

Wondering if anyone knows anything about Whittaker tools, I think 1800s hand tool company.
My Dad, is thinking of getting me a Rabbet plane, might be a moving fillister plane, from an antiques dealer.
I can not find any info on the company on the internet.
Figured here is as good a place as any to ask.
Thanks.

It might even be Whittaker and Sons.
Possibly in England.

It might be pretty rare if this Patent is what it is:

It’s all I could find in the US or Great Britain. I can’t find where any planes from this patent are known to exist and collectors often pay pretty well for Patented one-of-a-kind planes. Let the people at datamp.org know if you’ve found one.

Just to clear up the ( my own ) confusion, as it had been done for me… Whittaker and sons were the owners it was actually a A Mathieson & Son” plough plane. I am really glad to find this out cause I have been obsessing over trying to find Whittaker and Sons plane producers on every search engine I could find.
Mystery solved.
Thanks
