Topic tags/keywords: rosewood infill plane slater miller maple boxwood marples brass iron steel tool blade

Hey guys and gals. Here is another fine plane from my collection that I am offering up for sale. This is a MASSIVE shoulder plane, it is 9” long, 1 1/2” wide and weighs over 4 lbs. The solid brass body is in remarkable condition, as is the steel sole. It has very little wear. The back of the plane has a few dings from striking to loosen the blade.
The rosewood infill is in fantastic condition with beautiful grain. It is very tightly stuffed. The wedge is I believe boxwood or possibly maple. It too is in great condition and holds the blade very snugly. The Marples blade has 1 3/4” of life left, likely almost full. I’m not 100% sure who made this plane, but it is likely H. Slater or possibly Miller. The body has no makers mark. The mouth is quite tight and I have flattened and honed the blade. It takes very fine whisper thin shavings very easily.
I have included lots of pics, but feel free to ask questions.

Asking price for this plane is $380, which I think is very fair for a premium infill plane. Similar planes sell for $500 to $600 and up online.

I have many other planes, saws, braces, bits, and marking tools that I will be listing in the future, so if you are looking for something specific, let me know and I can certainly help you out. I can work out better prices on multiple tool purchases as well.

Thanks for looking!

A gorgeous specimen. I’m unfamiliar with that method of joining the sole. Best of luck!

Thanks Al. I haven’t seen a lot like this either. I don’t know if I would say it’s rare, but uncommon for sure. And rest assured, perfectly smooth!

That plane looks wonderful, I sure would love to buy it, however, helping others come first.

Thanks Arlin. I’d love to sell it to you but this plane is an unnecessary luxury for your worthy cause. And it is no longer for sale at any rate.
