Hi everyone,
Has anybody got any information on the Thomas Falconer Plow plane. Apart from a few photos on the web I can find very little. I’m looking for dimensions, drawings etc of this elusive beauty that might help me in having a go at building a reproduction.

Have you checked with the Royal Society for Arts? I had to Google for what this plane was as I’d never heard of it.
