Philly Planes - 5 Pairs of Hollows & Rounds, a Side Bead and a Rebate Plane
Another wonderful bargain for those who appreciate the skill and expertise invested in the making of fine hand tools.
5 matched pairs of hollows and rounds, Nos. 2, 4, 6, 8, & 12
Simple and addictive to use, these versatile planes would be fantastic additions to your workshop.
1" Rebate Plane
Perfect for making rebates, trimming shoulders and all those tasks where you need to get "right into the corner".
3/16" Side Bead
So what does this plane do? It's a dedicated profile that cuts a bead (a semi-circular shape that ends in a quirk) on the edge of a board. Quick and enjoyable to use.
Made from carefully chosen and seasoned quarter sawn Beech.
Pitch - 55 degrees, Irons - 3mm thick O1 High Carbon Steel
The maker is Phil Edwards. A superlative English maker of fine wooden planes.
Phil set about reviving the lost art of wooden plane making in the UK and has refined his skills since becoming a full time planemaker in 2007.
As a woodworker with a passion for hand tools, planes in particular, it was inevitable that he would end up making them himself. He makes each individual plane by hand from his workshop in Dorset, England.
The 12 planes listed here would normally retail for over £1600 and you may have to wait several months for your delivery as the man is busy with a long order book.
We don't think these planes have been used at all.
Condition is G++ to F
Of no consequence or relevance at all but possibly of interest..... Philly is singer/lead guitarist with the band The Lambrettas who had a UK No.7 hit in 1980 with a cover version of the 1950's Leiber & Stoller song Poison Ivy. Philly isn't an original band member as he is a youngster really. He started gigging with them in 2009
Here's a verse from Poison Ivy
She's pretty as a daisy
But lookout man she's crazy
She'll really do you in
If you let her get under your skin
Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy .....
